Fauna says its Audio Glasses are pioneering and special on the marketplace due to the audio innovation and sound instructions, declaring that the sound journeys straight to the users ear without significant leak. The concept is that you will not disrupt associates or others nearby, and nobody else will have the ability to hear any music, a podcast, or your personal phone call. In addition, users will constantly be able to perceive the surroundings and hear what goes on around as the ear canal is not obstructed making them safe to utilize when outdoors and crossing roads.
We initially heard of Fauna back at IFA 2019. These are the first audio glasses without big, chunky temples. The audio module in each module and each temple consists of a patented MEMS micro speaker, an electrodynamic speaker, a touch-pad, associated electronics and a battery. The connectors are concealed in the hinge of the glasses, suggesting theres no cable television to connect as weve seen on other audio eyeglasses models. The Fauna Audio Glasses charging case connects by means of Bluetooth with a mobile phone or PC; a specific app is not required.
We first heard of Fauna back at IFA 2019. I attempted a very early model at that time and was pleasantly amazed with both the style and sound quality. Unlike Bose, Fauna appeared to have actually produced audio eyewear that was in fact comfy to wear and trendy. Now, 2 years later on, the end product is all set for a market launch.
These are the very first audio glasses without big, chunky temples. In theory, at least, you might utilize these as your day-to-day glasses.
The Memor Havana design consists of changeable Zeiss DuraVision BlueProtect lenses which reduce blue light direct exposure from computers and phones which is proven to affect the body clock and cause bad sleep prior to bed. The Spiro design consists of replaceable Carl Zeiss Vision sun lenses, securing eyes from UVA and UVB rays. Both models are (IP52) water and dust resistant and included a two-year warranty.
Battery life and charging
The battery for both variations supplies up to 20 hours standby and more than 5 hours of music, voice assistant, or phone calls, according to Fauna Theres a 100 mAh battery in the glasses and a 1,300 mAh battery in the charging case, supplying an additional 5 battery chargers. Charging time is 2 hours for a full charge.
Whats actually interesting about the charging case, however, is the method the glasses link to the battery charger. The connectors are hidden in the hinge of the glasses, meaning theres no cable television to connect as weve seen on other audio eyewear designs. These charge the same method true-wireless headphones do, whichs cool.
Two variations of the Fauna eyewear are readily available, a Spiro Transparent Brown pair of sunglasses and the Memor Havana glasses with blue light filter lenses. Both designs are compatible with iPhone 5 or later on and Android 6.0 or later and utilize Bluetooth 5.0 with a variety of up to 10 metres.
Talk to me about sound quality
The variation I checked was still a very early prototype when I tried these back in 2019. It would not have actually been fair to judge the sound quality totally based upon that experience, but I left the Berlin trade show optimistic about what Fauna was working on.
The audio module in each module and each temple consists of a patented MEMS micro speaker, an electrodynamic speaker, a touch-pad, associated electronic devices and a battery. Two microphones are likewise incorporated into the best temple with beam-forming and echo cancelling. The frequency bandwidth is from 250 Hz to 20 kHz.
