The biometric headphones were unveiled alongside the Amazfit PowerBuds, Amazfit AirRun, and Huami’s HomeStudio at CES 2020 in January. The first two are currently available for purchase in select countries, with the third yet to be released.
Amazfit ZenBuds are a more advanced version of Huami’s PowerBuds, which are similar to Apple’s AirBuds. They have a similar shape and are intended to encourage good sleep and mindfulness. Each bud is only 1.78 grammes in weight.
ZenBuds block out ambient noise and play soothing music and natural sounds to lull you to sleep. The accompanying smartphone app has a huge collection of sleep-inducing noises to choose from. They’ll even track your sleep, keep an eye on your heart rate, and wake you up in the morning. On a single charge, the battery lasts 12 hours, and with the case, it lasts 8 days.
Surprisingly, the earbuds can detect when you fall asleep and will turn off automatically. As a result, they make excellent sleeping companions, assisting you in getting a good night’s sleep. The snug fit of the soft, flexible, and ultra-stretchy ear tips keeps them in place as you sleep.
Skin-soft silicone ear tips come in four sizes with the Buds. It’s useful since, according to Huami, most people are unaware that the average individual has one ear that is somewhat larger than the other.
The biometric headphones are currently available on Indiegogo for $69 each. ZenBuds are expected to arrive on backers’ doorsteps in September. Crowdfunding projects can be dangerous, but Huami is a huge corporation with a proven track record, so we are certain that this project will succeed.
