One of the coolest gadgets I saw CES, according to myself, my friends, and my family, was the Pionears Wireless Earbuds ($ 69.99) from Origaudio. At first glance, it looks like an oversized Zippo lighter (about the size of a deck of playing cards), but it’s really a charging case for two remarkably tiny earbuds. And the lid snaps open and closed (thanks to magnets) just like a lighter, but for a much healthier use case! The storage case itself has a 4,400mAh battery; and what is really cool is that it slips into a charging dock with integrated A/C wall plugs, so no cables are needed.
The unit is sold in Silver or Silver with Black, but I think the all-silver version looks the best. The compact earbuds can be adorned with several sizes of ear tips. They only get three hours of battery life; but when it’s that fun whipping out your charger, maybe that’s part of the charm.
The earbuds list for $ 119.99, but as I write this, they are on sale for $ 69.99. Origaudio is generous with sales and discounts, so check its website often.
