Created as a successor to the CES 2019 Innovation Award-winning WT2 earphones, the Timekettle M2 are a pair of TWS earphones that have an unusual two-part design, the reason behind which becomes incredibly evident once you realize what they’re actually designed for.
There are two main components to any conversation – talking to a person, and listening to the person talk to you. It’s only natural that earphones designed to facilitate conversation would embrace those two parts, right? The Timekettle M2, in that regard, aren’t your standard TWS earbuds. Sure, they’re meant for listening to music and podcasts, or giving commands to your phone’s voice AI, but their prime feature is the ability to foster a multi-lingual two-way conversation by allowing two people to wear one earphone each as the M2’s on-board translation engine seamlessly fills in the gaps. The earphone case’s design revolves around that very aspect, with a design that splits right in two, so you can hand one half over to someone you’re talking to, almost like you’re breaking bread with them.
Built with the ability to actively translate up to 40 languages and 93 accents in realtime, the Timekettle M2 earbuds put a translator in the ears of both conversation-holders. The Timekettle M2 boasts of three different conversation modes that help you navigate a variety of situations – ranging from holding a conversation in a foreign language, asking for advice, or taking lessons in languages you don’t understand. In Touch Mode, tap the force sensor on the M2 earbud once, and you can have a conversation with someone in any language and your speech instantly plays back in a translated language to the person wearing the other earpiece. In other modes, the M2 earbuds work along with your phone, allowing you to not only record and translate excerpts in foreign languages, but also translate previously recorded audio files whenever you want.
All the translation happens courtesy the presence of 4 translation engines that actively work to identify and translate languages based solely on vocal input. Timekettle partnered with best-in-class language enterprises such as Google, Microsoft, iFlytek, and others to deliver fast and responsive translations that accurately capture the nuances and idiosyncrasies of regular speech across multiple languages and accent-types. More importantly, the M2 earbuds possess the ability to translate offline – a feature that’s accessible by downloading the Offline Speech Translation Pack on M2’s app.
When you’re not using the M2’s translator feature, it still serves as a pretty good pair of TWS earbuds. Built with Bluetooth 5.0, the M2 offer quick and unwavering connectivity, along with Qualcomm’s aptX Audio Codec Compression to deliver incredible sound. The M2 comes with all the trimmings of a good pair of TWS earbuds, with the ability to answer and reject calls, cycle through music playback, or summon your phone’s Voice AI using its touch-sensitive surface. The earphones are compatible with iOS as well as Android devices, and offer 30 hours of playback with the charging-case, and 6 hours of active translation. Comprende, amigo?
