Posted by in category: futurism

In addition, they sound way better. Inside the completely wireless earbuds, there’s an 8mm custom dynamic driver that blows other headphones’ sound quality out of the water, and as for battery life, you’ll get three hours of it from these buds on a single charge, and the sleek carrying case holds an extra six charges on top of that.

Researchers think that the movement, known as “deep creep,” could be behind the unusual earthquake formations recorded in the region over the past 36 years.
