Up until now the benefit of wireless headphones has been negated by the need to carry extra wires to power up the device, but all that's about to change thanks to the charger-free Skybuds. The tiny in-ear buds don't require a whole new set of cables and equipment because they are charged and stored in a unique iPhone case. The case has two inductive charging ports, one for each Skybud, and a 1,000mAh battery that charges both the buds and your phone.
As well as an app that monitors battery usage, the charger-free Skybuds also have a Bluetooth headset feature with a microphone, meaning you can take calls. The microphone can also be used for noise cancellation to reduce nearby disturbances.
Skybuds are not just wireless earbuds, but also a case for your iPhone, a battery pack for your iPhone and even a Bluetooth headset, all without the extra clutter of a separate charger.
At $300 a unit, going charger-free is far from free, but if you back the Kickstarter project, you can pick up a set for $225.
