British audio company, Majority has announced a pair of biodegradable true wireless earbuds. Founded in Cambridge, in 2012, the company produces sustainable audio products, including soundbars, speakers, radios and earbuds.
The new TruBio true wireless earbuds were announced in February in a press release from the company. The earbuds as well as their charging case are made using biodegradable plastic and are driven by 13mm bio-cellulose speaker drivers made from certified compostable plastic.
According to the company, the TruBio TWS earbuds include many more benefits with dynamic drivers that deliver a balanced sound with deep bass and clear highs. “The latest Bluetooth 5.3 technology provides a stable and fast connection, creating a reliable listening experience. For gamers and movie watchers, the earbuds offer an ultra-low game latency of 55 – 70ms to ensure synchronization”.
The Majority TruBio Earbuds weigh just 43g, meaning they are light enough to be conveniently taken in a pocket or pop in a handbag. “The earpieces are petite and measure just 29 x 17 x 13mm making them small enough to be comfortable but large enough to sit securely in the wearer’s ear. The earbuds are supplied with silicone ear tips in small, medium and large sizes for a better fit. The IPX7 rating ensures they are both waterproof and sweatproof”.
Additionally, the TruBio earbuds feature a built-in microphone that enables users to easily take and make phone calls with a press of the button control on each earbud. “The TruBio also offers 30 hours of total playtime from a single charge of the case. A quick burst charge of 30 minutes can deliver up to two hours of listening time, ideal for those impromptu trips or gym sessions. The charging case can be recharged using the supplied USB-C cable”.
Working towards a climate-positive future, in 2021 Majority launched the Majority Forest with Ecologi, a reforestation organization. Majority will be planting trees in the Majority Forest and contributing towards sustainable projects that serve local communities, including protecting the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil and generating solar power in Tamil Nadu and Telangana, India.
Majority claims that as of February 2023 it has planted 435,735 trees and removed 485.55 tonnes of CO2 emissions from the atmosphere. For every review the company receives for TruBio, Majority says it will plant 100 trees in the name of the media outlet.
