At present, the mainstream bone conduction bluetooth earphones on the market all adopt the ear-mounted design. Because of the special sound generation method, the ear-mounted design can cleverly place the battery and the motherboard circuit on the side of the earphone to share the weight and ensure the wearing The comfort and the best effect of sound transmission are similar to the neck-mounted bone conduction bluetooth headset.

However, recently, the Japanese bone conduction headset brand Earsopen released the first true wireless bone conduction bluetooth earphones——Earsopen PEACE TW-1, which combines the bone conduction sound method with the characteristics of true wireless earphones. The split wireless design requires only light Lightly “clamped” on the auricle of the human ear, it looks more unique and the sound transmission effect is better. And the earphone supports IPX7 waterproof and sweatproof, so it can be used with confidence in rainy days and sports scenes.

Earsopen PEACE true wireless bone conduction earphones weigh about 10g each. The “T-shaped structure” design can ensure stable wearing in daily use and even sports scenes; the earphones can be connected immediately after removal, and can keep up to 2 pairing records, which is convenient for fast connection of mobile phones. Earsopen PEACE adopts physical button control, with indicator lights, prompt sounds and English vocals. The consideration is very comprehensive, but it also requires a certain learning cost. In a quieter environment, the call experience and gaming experience are similar to traditional TWS earphones. I have already conducted a detailed evaluation of this product before. Let’s take a look at the in-depth disassembly of this product!

52audio has disassembled Earsopen  FIT BT-1  bone conduction sports earphones and Earsopen BT-5 bone conduction bluetooth earphones with clip-on design.
