Usually the earbuds and headphones we cover here have everything to do with a great music and audio experience. But once in a while, there’s something a bit different that crosses our radar. The WT2 Plus earbuds are exactly that, different. These aren’t meant to bring your library of music into your ears, instead, they’re meant to help you understand other languages.
The WT2 Plus are translator earbuds that can recognize up to 40 languages and 88 different accents. The company sent over a pair to us for review but we haven’t had a chance to check them out just yet. We were so intrigued by the technology and the earbuds that we figured we’d introduce them to you before we actually reviewed them.
