The world’s first self-charging solar-powered wireless over-ear headset has been announced. Designed by the Urbanista brand, the headset can charge itself thanks to the solar panels it features. Urbanista claims that the headset will be able to work unlimitedly. Especially the convenience offered by wireless headphones attracts users. Self-charging as an extra feature will give users more convenience.
Urbanista Los Angeles solar-powered wireless headphones can be charged with any light source
Urbanista said Los Angeles headphones use a Powerfoyle solar panel and can generate energy from any light source. With this technology, users will be able to use the headset without limits. In clear, sunny weather, the headset will be able to store 3 hours of energy for every hour under the sun, according to Wired. If you’re in cloudy weather, it’s down to two hours. Even if you are in your room, the headset will still charge. The headset can also be charged using a USB-C cable.
Powerfoyle solar panels are the invention of a Swedish company called Exeter. These solar panels invented by Exeter can be used anywhere. Urbanista says this is the first time the technology has been used in a headset. JBL tried to use the same solar panels. JBL launched a project in 2019 to offer virtually unlimited uptime with reflecting eternal headphones. Affected by travel restrictions that began with Covid-19, JBL canceled the project.
Urbanista Los Angeles has full support with Siri and Google Assistant support, as well as iOS, Android, and Windows platforms. You can turn active noise cancellation (ANC) on or off with a button on the headset. Thanks to the sensors, the music will be paused automatically when you remove the headset. There are two color options, including night black.
Urbanista has not yet launched a pre-order for the headset, but it is claimed to have a price tag of $200.
