Tronsmart introduces the Apollo Bold, a hybrid active noise canceling wireless headset

Apple launched in 2016 the first iPhone without a headphone jack, a movement that has been followed little by little by the rest of the manufacturers and practically today it is very difficult to find a smartphone with this type of connection. This move has forced users to switch to wireless headphones.

Although Apple was not the first company to launch wireless headset, Samsung and Bragi already offered these types of products, it was not until the launch of AirPods in 2016 (the same year in which it removed the headphone jack) when wireless headset they became a trend.

Although Apple was not the first company to launch wireless headphones, Samsung and Bragi already offered these types of products

As the years have gone by, the needs of users do not simply go through wireless headphones with good autonomy, but also give more importance to the benefits that they can offer. In this sense, noise cancellation is one of the most important characteristics for 36% of users looking for this type of headphones.

The manufacturer Tronsmart has just introduced the Apollo Bold , hybrid active noise canceling headphones in collaboration, once again, with processor manufacturer Qualcomm. The new Tronsmart headphones make use of the QCC5124 processor, a processor that is not yet found in any other device on the market.

The Apollo Bold from Tronsmart, supports active noise cancellation and bluetooth signal processing, allowing both functions to offer the best performance working both together . Most wireless headphones currently available on the market use one chip for bluetooth connection and one for active noise cancellation.

Tronsmart headphones are designed with this hybrid technology that also allows noise cancellation in a wide range

These new Tronsmart headphones are designed with this hybrid technology that also allows noise cancellation in a wide range , to achieve a better result, allowing noise cancellation of up to 35 dB to be achieved, for the maximum 28 dB that most headphones offer. wireless on the market.

Another novelty that we find in these new headphones from Tronsmart is the use of synchronized signal transmission technology. This allows the bluetooth signal to be sent simultaneously to both the left and right earphones . Many of the wireless headphones on the market, one of them is the one that receives the signal and then passes it to the other headphone, which can sometimes cause a delay in synchronization.

Gadget Support for smartphones and bluetooth speaker in the form of retro TV

But if you like the design (and you have a smartphone that fits well with the size of the television), this is a very original gadget to watch videos on the smartphone
This curious gadget is neither more nor less than an old television that works as a support for smartphones and bluetooth speaker . With this we will convert our smartphone into a tube television of the 70s, for those who like sound.

Just as a support for the smartphone, we thought it worthwhile to publish this article. Retro is fashionable! The operation is simple. You just have to enable the screen spin of the smartphone, put it inside the television and enjoy a retro image of our smartphone. Depending on the size of our smartphone, it may be that the support cuts the edge of the image. One of the photos on the Zapals page indicates that the maximum size of the smartphone fits this support is 5 to 6.5 inches. But if we take into account the dimensions of the 8 x 18 cm gadget , we can assume that it is ideal for rather “small” models. So probably a Nubia Z17 is better than an Honor View 20.

Loudspeaker and support for smartphones in the form of retro TV in front side

It is a Bluetooth speaker with 3 watts of power and a battery of 1200 mAh

Probably the function as a speaker is almost irrelevant. It is a Bluetooth speaker with 3 watts of power and a battery of 1200 mAh . Without having tried it, I imagine that it is of a quality inferior to the average. My advice is: do not buy the support if what you want is a speaker for the smartphone.

But if you like the design (and you have a smartphone that fits well with the size of the television), this is a very original gadget to watch videos on the smartphone. The Divoom TIVOO has a similar design, but it is a good bluetooth speaker. The Divoom speaker also does not have the ability to play videos in the smartphone’s pant-screen and costs around € 40 more.

Do you like the retro design of this support for the smartphone? Would you use it to watch series or videos?
