What you need to know

  • Grell TWS/1 are a pair of true wireless headphones by former Sennheiser engineer and headphone designer Axel Grell.
  • The earbuds feature active noise cancellation, Bluetooth 5.2 support, and IPX4 splash resistance.
  • They are now available to pre-order for $200 / £180.

Axel Grell, who designed some of Sennheiser's most popular headphones — including the HD580 and HD800, left the company in 2019 to set up a new company called Grell Audio. The company has now launched its first product, dubbed Grell TWS/1.

The new true wireless earbuds feature a minimalistic design and are claimed to have a "stunning sound signature created for a new generation of digitally-connected listeners." They also have all the features you'd expect from a premium pair of true wireless earbuds.

The earbuds use custom 10mm high-precision dynamic drivers with Noise Annoyance Reduction (NAR) technology to give you a high-end listening experience. Like the best wireless earbuds on the market, the Grell TWS/1 offer active noise cancellation as well.

As for battery life, Grell claims the earbuds can provide up to 34 hours of total battery life with active noise cancellation enabled. With ANC turned off, you can get up to 45 hours of listening time. The earbuds themselves are capable of providing six hours of playtime with ANC on.

On the connectivity front, the Grell TWS/1 earbuds are compatible with Bluetooth 5.2 and support SBC, AAC, Qualcomm aptX, Qualcomm aptX HD, Qualcomm aptX adaptive, and LHDC codecs.

The Grell TWS/1 earbuds have been priced at $200 /£180 and can now be pre-ordered from the company's online store. They are expected to begin shipping sometime in November via Grell online and Drop.com.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
