Building on other versions of ANC headphones released in 2021, Belkin unveiled its new SoundForm Immerse noise canceling headphones in Las Vegas this week – and they immediately won the CES Innovation Award 2022.
The new buds challenge aging AirPods Pro champions, due to the reconstruction, not only with Hybrid Active Noise Canceling (ANC) with Hear-Thru mode, but also working with Apple’s huge Find My network. And they are characterized by numerous top features.
Belkin, of course, presented other products at CES.
Belkin SoundForm noise canceling headphones
ANC of Hear-Thru; 3 microphones per bud
Belkin’s new headphones feature a hybrid ANC with Hear-Thru mode that lets you hear external sounds you don’t want to miss, such as Apple’s Transparency mode. Belkin does this through three microphones and dual beamforming, helping to eliminate ambient noise, while at the same time better capturing your voice for calls.
aptX HD codec support
Inside each handset is a 12mm, dual-layer dynamic driver with a neodymium magnet with support for the aptX HD 24-bit audio codec – meaning higher-than-average potential for the high-fidelity sound audiophiles would like.
You can also personalize the sound with the SoundForm app, which allows you to adjust EQ and Hear-Thru levels. Not all headphones even have a special app. Instead, many low- and medium-priced buds rely solely on touch controls.
Quickly pair and switch devices plus Find My
The headset also has a multi-point Bluetooth connection, so you can quickly switch between the devices you use as audio sources. Google Fast Pair support allows the headset to work quickly with Android smartphones.
IPhone users find an added benefit to Belkin’s headphones in a wireless charging case, which includes support for Apple’s extensive Find My network. In addition, you can search for a lost handset using the Ping My Earbuds feature in the SoundForm app.
Extended battery life, flexible fit
Another quality of the charging housing is its contribution to the already impressive battery life. Belkin said the buds offer 8 hours of play. Then storing them in a wireless charging case adds 28 hours of battery life, for a total of 36 hours of use.
The buds have an IPX5 rating for resistance to sweat and water and come with a variety of silicone ear tips and wings for adjustable fit.
Belkin said he plans to launch SoundForm Immerse noise canceling headphones in the second quarter of 2022 for $ 179.99. You can sign up for updates via email on the company’s website.
