CES 2016: Onkyo’s completely wire-free earbuds launching in Australia in May

High-end Japanese audio manufacturer Onkyo will bring its first pair of truly wire-free earbuds to Australia this May. While most wireless headphones still use a lead to join the left and right bud, Onkyo has eschewed wires completely with the brand new W800BT.

Each of the W800BT’s earbuds have an independent driver and battery, and then pair with a smartphone, computer, or tablet via Bluetooth.

An Onkyo spokesperson told CyberShack that earbuds allow up to three hours of music playback per charge. The included storage case works as a charger, and has enough capacity to recharge the W800BT three times. This should give users up to 12 hours of music playback time before the W800BT's carry case has to be recharged itself.
