How truly wireless works.
You may wonder how truly wireless works, especially as there are no bands or cables connecting the earbuds. All truly wireless headphones work with Bluetooth, the buds would first of all, connect to each other and then one of them would connect to the main device. Audio data is relayed from the device to the main ear bud and then transferred to the second, this makes connections a little spotty and unreliable. Sometimes while watching a video you might notice that the sound doesn't quite match what they are saying in the video, but this glitch isn't noticeable while listening to music or podcasts. This is why Manufacturers keep tweaking, upgrading and updating their devices, to suit their customers’ needs, perhaps one day soon enough we would have a truly wireless headphones that can do as well or better than wired earbuds.
