The demand for truly wireless earphones is not about to slow down any time soon. Every month, companies have been regularly releasing new models. This has compelled Qualcomm to release aptX Lossless, a CD-quality audio streaming codec, and there is already a pair of TWS buds on the market that support it.
The Australian audio startup Nura is now raising money on Kickstarter for their NuraTrue Pro truly wireless earphones, with early bird rates starting at $199 and a standard retail price of $329. These happen to be the first TWS model to offer lossless audio streaming. Last year, Qualcomm unveiled aptX Lossless, promising to provide CD-quality, 16-bit/44.1/kHz audio streaming over Bluetooth.
The highest bitrate that aptX Lossless can achieve is 1Mbps, as opposed to LDAC’s closest rival’s 990kbps. Additionally, these truly wireless earphones support Snapdragon Sound. Unfortunately, since the new audio codecs are so recent, you won’t currently locate any sources that support them. The NuraTrue Pro earbuds support aptX Lossless as well as active noise cancellation, spatial audio, multipoint connectivity so they can connect to several sources simultaneously, and users can independently use each earpiece. With wireless charging, the buds can reportedly play music for up to eight hours on their own or for 32 hours when hooked to the charging case.
