According to designer Thomas Le, wireless earbuds just aren’t quite there yet. The touch controls can be difficult and tedious to navigate or, even worse, tend to dislodge them from the ears altogether! The fix? A spinning dial instead of buttons and touch surfaces.
This micro-size rotating dial allows the wearer to quickly and accurately adjust volume, cycle through songs, or even fast forward through music or emails being read. The dial also features a texturized surface for precision tuning. This reduction in parts also equates to an even more compact size and lighter weight, however, the tragus/antitragus ear contact ensures they’ll stay put even during rigorous activity. DO want!
