You’ve never seen wireless headphones like these – meet JBL’s transforming buttons

The new cat meow in wireless headphones is something called an ‘open’ design, where the driver housing doesn’t require a neck that needs to enter the ear canal to create a seal, but sits just above the ear opening (read: ear hole) – see Sony’s Linkbuds or sporty Cleer Audio Arc for examples.

The benefit of such a design, as you might have guessed, is that it allows you to maintain a greater awareness of your surroundings while enjoying your playlists. And unlike bone conduction headphones, there’s no band at the back of your head to contend with.
