The CES always reserves small surprises and the one of the day is signed HP. The brand has indeed presented its first True Wireless headphones: the Elite Wireless Earbuds. This new product is above all dedicated to the business world.
True Wireless headphones are popular and all tech companies are starting to release their models. HP has also entered the segment with the Elite Wireless Earbuds. These are wireless in-ear devices that connect via Bluetooth as there are many. They are dedicated to the business world, which makes them unique.
The format does not change: we still have two wireless headphones and a box in which to store and charge them at the same time. The design is sober with a black dress goes everywhere. Ideal for Zoom or Teams meetings, very used at the moment because of the pandemic.
Elite Wireless Earbuds are priced at $ 200
The headphones adopt dimensions of 17 x 12 mm, which is very small for this kind of product. They weigh 8 grams each. They are equipped with 9.3mm neodymium speakers, but also active noise cancellation, which can be very useful in video chatting to focus on what the other person has to say to you. On the battery side, we do not have a figure for the autonomy, but the box has a fast charge that can fully recharge them in two hours. It is possible to gain 90 minutes of use with just 15 minutes of charging.

HP has indicated that its Elite Wireless Earbuds will be accompanied by an application available on Android, iOS, but also Windows and Mac. It will be used for connection, sound calibration and profile selection (office, gym or home). By tapping on it, it will be possible to change the device on which the headphones are connected thanks to Microsoft Swift Air. The product release date is set for April 2021. For the price, HP has set it at $ 199. This should of course evolve for the European market.
These are not the manufacturer’s first headphones, but its first True Wireless. An increasingly competitive market, which prompted HP to focus on professional use to stand out.
