HTC, a company best known for its smartphones, is entering the market of wireless headphones which is proving to be a profitable market. The U.S. Telecommunications Administration (FCC) database has revealed the first information regarding HTC’s new earphones called HTC U Ear headphones.
Although HTC was better known for manufacturing Android smartphones, it quickly faded into the background, and since then the company has started to rebuild its position in the market. As of now, they are trying to venture into the territory of wireless earphones
The image posted by the FCC website shows the charging case, a power cable, and the headphones with small charging PINs. At first glance, the earphones look awfully similar to that of Apple’s AirPods but they come in the color black.
The true wireless headphones come with a charging, compact, and square case with a USB-C port. Whatever information is public right now, it seems that the charging box is included in the sales package.
The images leaked online can only reveal so much if the information remains unfollowed by substantial details about the specs. Naturally, the same goes for the HTC wireless headphones too, and nothing concrete is yet known about the technical features of the headphones.
The pictures also reveal that the earphones do not come with silicone earplugs. But as mentioned before, there is no complete certainty about the lack of silicone earplugs either.
Furthermore, there is no information available about the pricing of the earphones so there is no way anyone could take a gander at guessing the price range without having proper technical features. Also, the release date of the earphones is also speculative.
So far as first ventures go, this is not the first time that HTC will get into the earphone trade. HTC has experience with headphones such as the Usonic wired USB Type-C earphones. It came with top-tier features such as noise-canceling, and automatic calibration for optimal sound. The price of the new earphones along with the specs will determine the success and longevity of HTC in the earphone market.
