Nokia Power Earbuds launched with battery life of 150 hours and waterproof IPX7
At the upcoming IFA 2019, smartphone and mobile phone maker HMD Global has just announced the launch of a number of products in its segment under its licensed Nokia brand. Along with the new smartphones, the company also launched Nokia Power Earbuds, a pair of truly wireless headphones that deliver best-in-class battery life of up to 150 hours per charge cycle thanks to a 3000 mAh charging case for the headset. The Powerbuds cost $87 and will go on sale from October.
The Nokia Power headphones match the Nokia True Wireless headphones that were released earlier this year and feature a much more powerful charging case with a 3000 mAh battery. It is alleged that the charging case is capable of charging batteries with a capacity of 50 mAh in the headphones 30 times. The earbuds themselves have a stated battery life of 5 hours, which gives Power Earbuds a total battery life of 150 hours per charge cycle.
The headphones charge by simply placing them in the charging case, and the case itself can be charged via the USB Type-C port. The Nokia Power headphone controls are equipped with touch controls, and three pairs of earbuds of sizes S,M,L are included in the package. Headphones allow you to use the voice assistant on your smartphone only for voice commands hands-free calls.
In addition, Nokia Power headphones have Bluetooth 5.0 for connection, and IPX7 is designed for water resistance, which means that you can immerse the earbuds in water for 1 meter for up to 30 minutes without risk of damage. The headphones are powered by 6 mm graphene drivers and are available in two color options: dark gray and light gray.
Although there is no official announcement on availability, the price of the headphones may be about the same as the Nokia True Wireless headphones when they are released, that is at around $90. Although there are many truly wireless headphones available in all price ranges, the promise of 150 hours of battery life on a charge cycle will give Nokia Power headphones a significant advantage over competitors.
