It seems Libratone has been hard at work over the past year because on top of partnering with Google to launch USB-C headphones along with the Pixel 2 they’ve also been developing an entirely new product that just got announced today. The new TRACK+ Wireless in-ears come with adaptive noise cancelling that you can increase or decrease in strength based on the sounds of your environment.
Like the Q-Adapt line of headphones before them these seem to be geared towards the commuter that wants a stylish pair of ANC headphones. Design-wise these kind of look as if Libratone ripped the earbuds off of their Q-Adapt in-ears and attached it to a neckbud-style of headphones, so if you liked those then you’ll like these as well.
You’ll get four levels of active noise cancelling, a feature that Libratone calls CityMix
The neck piece attached to the ‘buds is pretty flexible as well making for a comfortable listening experience while you’re out. You’ll get four levels of active noise cancelling, a feature that Libratone calls CityMix. It also comes with Hush mode, which essentially mutes what you’re listening to and uses the tiny noise cancelling microphones to let you pass through audio from the outside, allowing you to stay aware of your surroundings without ever taking off the headphones.
On top of that these also have an IPX4 water-resistance rating so if you find yourself in a rainstorm you won’t have to worry about them getting damaged. They’re also sweat-resistance if you decide to bring them with you on your next workout. The new TRACK+ Wireless headphones will be available in Cloudy White or Stormy Black color options for $199 when they go on sale early this year.
