These may look like your typical pair of earrings outfitted with – rather large – pearls, but they’re more than just jewelery: they actually double as ultra-discrete earbuds. The clip-on or stud H1 Audio Earrings from Nova Audio feature two speakers behind both pearls that use directional sound to transmit audio up and into your ears. Nova says the technology adds “a layer of sound” to your environment, allowing you to hear what’s going on around you while still enjoying your audio. That means they don’t have any noise-cancellation properties, which could come in handy for athletes who want to remain aware of their surroundings, as well as anyone else who doesn’t want to tune everything out. Nova says its directional sound technology helps prevent other people from hearing whatever you’re listening to. The audio earrings offer up to 3.5 hours of music playback or 2.5 hours of talking time using the four built-in microphones. The included charging case, which, fittingly, looks like an elegant earring case, provides up to three full charges, making for around 14 hours of listening in total. Nova’s audio earrings come in both gold and silver, costing $753 USD and $645 USD, respectively.
