Have you ever been traveling to a foreign country and wished you had a real-time translation tool? What about in a business meeting with multicultural participants where there are some serious communication gaps? Believe it or not, there is a modern solution, and it comes in the convenient form of wireless earbuds. Timekettle prides itself on providing real-time translator earbuds, that do pretty much exactly what you’d expect. While wearing them, they offer two-way translation with 95% accuracy, in up to 40 languages, and with over 90 accents. Offline translation is available for eight languages, while online translation occurs a bit faster — in 0.5 to three seconds total. The two Timekettle sets to highlight are the WT2 Edge and the M3, which we’ll explore in more detail below! Meanwhile, if you want a pair right now, you can take advantage of a 25% off deal. Either way, let’s go.

The first thing you’ll notice is that Timekettle’s wireless and real-time translator earbuds come in several models and variations. The WT2 Edge adopts a more traditional design. You get the earbuds and a wireless charging case, which altogether offer up to 12 hours of battery life and three hours per earbud on a single charge.

The biggest difference between the WT2 Edge and other models is the bi-directional simultaneous translation. That means you can speak and hear translations of other people’s speech at the same time. So, you’re able to respond promptly and have excellent conversations without awkward pauses in between. They feature a 0.5 to three-second latency time for translations, which is incredibly low, so translations are speedy and have an accuracy rating of up to 95%. Smart noise reduction picks up whoever is speaking, and they work just about everywhere, even rooms with up to six people speaking bilingually. They are designed specifically for lengthy conversations, business and personal, that require translations in multiple languages. Professionals, bilingual and cross-language families, and immigrants alike will find them extremely helpful.

There are four built-in operating modes, including Simul, Touch, Speaker, and Listen. In Simul mode, for example, you share a headphone with whom you want to talk, and the translation is sent to the earbuds. In Touch mode, you simply tap the earbud to begin the translation. They are both convenient and easy to use. Plus, online and offline translations are possible, so if there’s a connection available then great, but if there’s not, you can still use the translator with up to eight languages.

What do you get someone who’s always on the move and always busy? Exactly these. Timekettle’s M3 earbuds are stunning, quite like a well-known pair of earbuds that we shall not name. They’re geared toward the average person, however, instead of just business professionals, and offer three-in-one support for music, phone calls, and real-time translations. Built-in dual microphones help isolate audio when someone is speaking, but also deliver crystal clear calls even when you’re out and about in busy areas. The earbuds last for 7.5 hours on a single charge, and up to 25 hours total with the included charging case. They’re IPX4 water resistant too so you don’t have to worry about exposing them to a little moisture.

Like Timekettle’s other earbuds, the M3 earbuds have multiple user modes, including touch, listen, and speaker. These are more cost-effective, however, excellent for students, researchers, and people visiting abroad. In touch mode, the earbuds translate while you’re talking, so long as you tap the touch panel on the exterior. In listen mode, they offer one-way translations for the user — like when a professor or someone is speaking and you need to understand what they’re saying. Finally, speaker mode offers two-way interpretation through your phone for getting some quick answers, like directions to a nearby venue. They support up to 40 languages in 93 accents, and offline translation for up to eight major languages. They’re reliable in social settings too, like meetings, gatherings, parties, and so on. They are a must-have if you’re visiting somewhere new and don’t know the local language.

They make great holiday gifts

Busy professionals, students, exchange students, frequent travelers — you name it! They’re earbuds with a twist, and they’re far more practical than your average pair of headphones. With the M3, for example, you can listen to music with the earbuds too when you don’t need them to translate for you.

Right now is an excellent time to buy a pair of Timekettle earbuds. Timekettle is offering Digital Trends readers up to 25% off both products featured here. To take advantage, just head over to Timekettle’s site or Amazon.
