Although the brand is not what it used to be, Palm maintains its scope of development within mobile phones thanks to its first product: the small, very small, Palm mobile. Now, the manufacturer dares with the TWS headphones entering the market with the Palm Buds Pro, a device of apparent quality and contained price.
The great colossi of yesteryear tend to return in search of repeating their glories; not in vain the weight of a large brand offers appeal to any company that wants to be behind. Palm is a good example of this strategy: despite the fact that as a mobile manufacturer it was missing, the name returned from the disappeared holding a tiny phone. That was the beginning of a product catalog that has just grown.
Noise cancellation and up to 5 hours of playback
The market for TWS headphones is increasingly saturated, both in the segment of the most expensive and premium as in the one of the most accessible. Since most mobile brands decide on complete your ecosystem by developing headphones, There is such a variety of options that it is difficult to decide on one. Palm targets those who are looking for the best features and don’t want to spend too much.
The Palm Buds Pro are completely wireless headphones that include active noise cancellation or ANC. Each of the headphones includes three microphones with which not only filter the ambient sound, but also facilitate calls by promising high audio quality.
With an in-ear design, with pads to facilitate sound isolation, in satin black and with a weight per earpiece of 4.1 grams. Each equips a 40 mAh battery; with an extra power in the carrying and charging case that reaches 400 mAh. Palm claims that the Buds Pro offer 5 hours of playback with active noise cancellation. And up to 24 hours if case refills are combined.
10mm diaphragm, IPX4 resistance to wear the headphones for sports, includes gesture playback control, Palm Buds Pro offer Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and they are compatible with AAC and SBC codecs. No aptX or FLAC, too bad.
The Palm Buds Pro are official and available for purchase on the manufacturer’s website. Its price is 129 euros; although they have a discount for their launch: headphones can be purchased for $ 99. Currently they only ship to the United States, Canada and Mexico, although it is most likely that Palm will end up opening distribution to more countries.
