Harman Kardon's new FLY earphones are a serious Apple AirPods competitor
The new FLY series includes three different models aimed at customers looking for specific features: FLY BT, FLY TWS, and FLY ANC. These names are abbreviations of specific connectivity and audio technologies. For example, BT comes from Bluetooth, TWS means true wireless, while ANC is short for active noise canceling.
The most expensive ones, the FLY ANC, which you can see in the picture above, promise to offer 20 hours of continuous playback time with just one charge, with Bluetooth and active noise-canceling enabled. They also feature support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, which can be triggered from one of the earcups.
FLY BT are the cheapest of the trio and are meant to offer a low-cost alternative to Samsung's Galaxy Buds and Apple's AirPods. They can be used with a cord, but they also come with a behind-the-neck band. The battery should last for about 8 hours of listening, but since they're packed with speed charge, you'll be able to recharge them quite fast. Just like the FLY ANC, these come with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa support.
