Add Phiaton to the list of companies heading to Kickstarter to fund their latest product. We’ve reviewed a few pairs of Phiaton headphones in the past and have been generally pleased with the build quality and sound. The Phiaton BOLT BT 700 True Wireless earphones mark the company’s foray into the latest headphone space and offer up a charging case that doubles as a portable speaker.
The new true wireless earphones from Phiaton also feature the company’s Balanced Armature Technology. As a result, the custom-made drivers “deliver fine-tuned, high-resolution audio and faster response with impressively detailed sound, making these the first of their kind in the true wireless market.”
Providing up to five hours of music playing time per charge, the charging speaker case fully charges the earphones up to three times per charge, extending your play time to 20 hours. The quick charge feature offers an hour of music playback from a 10-minute charge.
With a touch interface, the BOLT BT 700 also offers hands-free voice commands for Siri and Google Assistant. The earbuds are also IPX4 sweat and water resistant.
