2023 is the first year of growth for open-ear earbuds. Especially in the Chinese market, open-ear headphones have experienced explosive growth since June,2023. According to a report by IDC, a well-known market research organization, China’s open-ear headphone total shipment was 5.186 million units from Q1 to Q3 in 2023.

Why are open-ear headphones so recognized by consumers as soon as they are put on the market?

1. Open-back headphones free your ears and are comfortable to wear without any sense of restraint.

2. As the earbud does not enter the inner ear, users can hear the outside environment.

3. Thanks to the development of Bluetooth chip technology, directional sound transmission, and sound cavity structure, open-back headphones can reach 7-9 hours of regular battery life after a single full charge, and the sound quality is getting richer and fuller.

4.  Suitable for various scenes, indoor, outdoor, sports, etc.
