SOUNDFORM™ Freedom True Wireless Earbuds

The SOUNDFORM™ Freedom True Wireless Earbuds offer an enhanced listening experience with custom-built drivers, 8-hour non-stop play time, environmental noise cancellation, and Qi wireless charging with an additional 20 hours of charge. The new True Wireless Earbuds are also built with finding capabilities through Apple’s Find My network, an advanced crowdsourced finding network with uncompromising privacy built in, that will allow customers to use the Find My app to locate them in case they are lost or stolen.

Belkin’s signature sound with custom drivers deliver powerful bass and exceptional clarity. Together with the Qualcomm® QCC3046 Bluetooth SoC, Belkin’s clear call technology delivers the best possible call quality without the distraction of background noise. 

 

Additional Features

  • Charge your earbuds case with any Qi wireless charger or via a USB-C port; 15 minutes of charge in the case provides 2 hours of playback
  • Get the most comfortable fit, perfect seal, and noise isolation with custom designed small, medium, or large ear tips

BOOST↑CHARGE™ PRO 2-in-1 Wireless Charger Stand with MagSafe

It delivers the fastest possible charge, up to 15W, to your iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, and includes a charging pad optimised for your AirPods Pro and AirPods with Wireless Charging Case (2nd Generation). It is designed with premium finishes for a bold and modern aesthetic to enhance any space from the office to the living room.

 

Linksys Aware

Linksys Aware is introducing the next generation of its award-winning motion sensing technology introduced last year. In its latest iteration, Linksys Aware supports third-party stationary Wi-Fi connected devices such as Wemo smart plugs and Belkin smart speakers to expand motion-sensing coverage capabilities and strengthen home security.

 

Actionable Insights

Linksys Aware allows for existing smart devices such as thermostats or doorbells to act as points of communication, expanding motion-sensing coverage area and allowing consumers to get a more detailed picture of where exactly motion has happened in the home.

 

More From the App

Users will be able to access “motion alerts” through the Linksys App when activity is detected, and can turn on, off or snooze the alerts, controlling the frequency of notifications from the palm of their hands. Users will also be able to customise the motion sensitivity level in the home, ensuring an extra layer of protection and avoiding any false alarms. Linksys Aware will introduce an improved live graph to show real-time and historical data on motion activity anywhere in the home.
