true wireless stereo: why is it essential for you if you hate wires?

in 2021, every tech-genius or tech and gadget selling company is trying to compile everything in the wireless form to reduce the space they consume and to improve the user experience by increasing usability. many wireless earbuds, including apple earpods, have experienced explosive growth since 2016, and still, it's one of the fastest-growing products. 

what is true wireless stereo technology, or what is tws technology? 

true wireless stereo (tws) is a technology that uses bluetooth signals instead of wires to transfer sound. in general terms, true wireless stereo or tws can be referred to as a technology that enables you to pair two audio devices via bluetooth, each of them receives the l channel (left) and the channel r (right) independently. you can certainly imagine the benefit of such technology applied to earphones.

manufacturing and design of tws

as of 2021, people have gotten used to everything wireless; the mobile industry is also pushing towards everything wireless and cable-less. tws earbuds require physical miniaturization, while it efficiently maximizes the functionality and user experience. 

tws is a customer experience enhancing tool; headsets in daily lives enhance the customer experience by ensuring hassle-free user interface integration. however, it's challenging for the tws earbuds designers and developers. 

challenges tws earbuds designers and developers face and overcome include

tws earbuds designers and developers find it extremely difficult to pack in more playtime as battery space is extremely limited in tws headphones. the battery capacity that the industry can use ranges between 60 mah to 100 mah, which generally offers a playtime of 2-5 hours. once the tws runs out of power, the headset/earbuds need to get charged before being used again. tws headphones or earbuds are shipped with a charger cradle. this cradle acts as a handy compartment, ensuring you've more space for battery and saves you from losing your earbuds/earphones. 

the tws headset is user-friendly and smart enough to exchange data between the earbuds and charger cradle. this thoughtful exchange of data helps the cradle know about the earbuds' battery status and decide for itself if the earbuds require charging or not at the said moment. this recharging process, which is continuous, is necessary because of the always-on microcontroller unit (mcu) due to the quiescent current consumption of the mcu. 

alternatively, if the earbuds know about the charging cradle's low battery status, they can automatically inform the user via bluetooth notification. an intelligent connection, automatic start-up, and pairing would help enhance usability and user experience. 

if the charging cradle informs the earbud that the cradle's lid has been opened the earbuds can wake themselves up from their sleep mode and prepare the bluetooth pairing process without the user pressing a button to perform the same range of functions.
