Belkin enters the wireless audio market with SOUNDFORM range
Each set of earbuds comes bundled with a wireless charging pad or portable powerbank.
When you hear "Belkin", the first things that come to mind are probably charging cables, screen protectors and power adapters, right? Well, for the first time in Australia, the well-known smartphone accessories and computer peripherals brand is branching out into true wireless audio with the new SOUNDFORM range of wireless earbuds.
The headline act of the range is the SOUNDFORM Freedom true wireless earbuds, which retail for $199.95. They boast environmental noise cancelling, 8mm drivers, up to 9 hours of battery life per earbud and 26 with the charging case, IPX5 water resistance and are integrated with Apple's Find My network. At launch, the buds come bundled with a Belkin BOOST↑CHARGE dual wireless charging pad, which can be used to charge both the earbuds and other Qi-enabled devices (like the iPhone 13 and Samsung Galaxy S21) simultaneously. Both the earbuds and charging pad are available in black and white.
Next up is the SOUNDFORM Rise, which offer passive noise isolation, 6mm drivers, 7 hours of battery life per bud and 24 in the case, IPX5 water resistance and Qi wireless charging compatibility. They retail for $119.95 and, at launch, include a Belkin BOOST↑CHARGE multi-port power bank. Both are available in black or white.
Rounding out the trio is the $89.95 SOUNDFORM Move Plus wireless earbuds (available in black only), which at launch include a Belkin BOOST↑UP 10W wireless charging pad. Once again they offer passive noise cancellation, 6mm drivers, IPX5 water resistance, Qi wireless charging compatibility and 8 hours of battery life per bud with 16 in the case.
Each new product is available now at Big W, with SOUNDFORM Mini kids' wireless headphones coming soon for $39.95.
