China’s Funcl announced the launch and unveiled its latest wireless earphones in Beijing on Thursday. This launch was a part of the young startup’s ambition to give a tough fight to the major earphones in the market including AirPods from Apple Inc and FreeBuds from Huawei Technologies Co Ltd.
The gadgets include an AI wireless headphone using Snapdragon technologies from Qualcomm, which will enable users to power AI voice assistant and real-time translation.
“The smart earphone market will witness an explosive growth this year and we will tap into this rising market,” said Miao Jingwei, product manager of Funcl, a headphone maker.
Also, the company stated that the time delay rate of this latest earphone was only 60 milliseconds, which is the best not only in China but also across the world. They also said that the company wants to make ‘internet earphones’ which would mean that most people are able to enjoy benefits brought by high-tech smart headphones.
The company has set the two new products at a low price around 299 yuan ($47) and 99 yuan each and expects to attract more young consumers.
