Piercing headphones and rings, the latest technological fashion

Technology manufacturers want to demonstrate that fashion and, above all, discretion do not have to be at odds with the latest advances and for some time they have been striving to achieve this goal. Last December, Huawei presented striking headphones at an event in Dubai that go outside the ear, like a piercing, and this week, another company, Bose, has launched similar ones.

And if we talk about technological accessories, the so-called smart rings have been trying to gain a foothold among consumers for years, but this will surely be when Samsung and other brands like Honor and Xiaomi launch theirs and therefore when we see these jewel-shaped devices take off. .

In the case of Huawei's headphones, the Freeclip, the Chinese company says it identified a growing demographic segment made up of users who craved a listening experience that combined the technological features of current wireless earbuds with the ability to stay connected with its environment. That is why within its 'Fashion Forward' range, with devices for users who care about style, Huawei presented its Freeclip, headphones that look like a large piercing and that allow you to listen to music but also the environment.

Each earpiece is made up of a C-shaped bridge that connects an acoustic ball, through which you hear the music and which goes in the ear, and a bean-shaped support, which rests on the back of the ear. Despite its malleability, Huawei assures that this design stands out for its durability and has passed more than 25,000 reliability tests, in addition to being very comfortable. Another interesting fact is that they can be used interchangeably on both ears. They sell for 179 euros.

After those from Huawei, Bose announced the Ultra Open Earbuds this week. The objective, as with the previous ones, is to remove the headset from the ear to be able to listen to what is happening around us and, at the same time, listen to songs, podcasts or calls privately. In this case they have a flexible gasket and a light grip to gently hook them around the back of the ear.

They also boast a smart function that allows you to automatically raise or lower the volume depending on external noise. They have a price of 379 euros.

In addition to these earring-like headphones, in recent weeks another technological device that imitates a jewel is in fashion, rings. Samsung announced in January that it plans to put on sale this year a smart ring focused on measuring users' health and monitoring sleep. During the Mobile World Congress held last week, the Samsung ring could be seen behind a display case, but little else. Even so, the Korean company assures that its new wearable will be officially launched in 2024.

After this announcement, Honor also assured that this year it will launch its own connected ring, but in reality Samsung or Honor are not the first, as there are already several companies on the market that offer this type of gadgets.

The best known is Oura, which from the finger is capable of taking up to 20 biometric measurements, such as temperature trends, heart rate, daily activity and recovery, sleep quality, menstrual cycles and even stress. The battery lasts up to seven days and its titanium body makes it very resistant. The drawback of this device is that you have to add a 6 euro monthly subscription to its price to access the measurements. The cost of the ring starts at 329 euros.

Another company that has put its smart ring on sale this year has been Amazfit. The Helio Ring allows you to monitor some aspects of your health through the skin, such as heart rate, sports recovery or aspects related to emotions. It sells for 399 euros.

For its part, the Spanish signet ring, Rikki, is focused on contactless payments. This device does not measure heart rate or monitor sports, but rather works exclusively to be able to pay with dataphones without having to take out the card or phone. It costs 150 euros.
