Google’s New Hardware Product GID5B: An Over-Ear Bluetooth Headphones with Noise Cancellation?
A new set of with the model number GID5B were spotted by Lilliputing on the FCC Website today. In case you didn’t know : If you’re designing, manufacturing, or marketing a device for the US market that communicates wirelessly – using Bluetooth, WiFi, cellular or any other RF technology – or that contains a processor, that device is subject to the FCC’s equipment authorization rules. We are totally psyched with the minimalist looks of it and it appears pretty neat.
As per the user manual these new Google headphones sport an adjustable headband, an optional cable with in-line volume and play/pause controls and a microphone for phone calls. Also these are the specs as per the manual:
- Dynamic driver with a 40mm diameter and 32 Ohms impedance.
- Frequency range: 12Hz – 20KHz
- ANC Peak value: >25dB
- ANC bandwidth: 25Hz – 1 KHz
- Battery capacity: 600 mAh
- Battery life: >25 hours BT streaming without ANC / > 16 hours with ANC on / > 10 hours at max volume level
- Dimensions: 195.5mm x 170.5mm x 94.5mm
The market is adrift with speculation, with some stating that it can a door gift for an upcoming event by Google, or it can be for use by Google Employees in office premises hence there was no confidentiality in FCC website, or it can be for sale on Google Merchandise Store. One of the wildest yet possible rumour is that GID5B is Bisto; Bisto as pointed out on a Reddit is a device that includes spoken notifications.
Speculations apart, Audiosonics cannot wait to get their hands on this piece of hardware designed by Google. As we know most of these innovative products hardly reach India, we are still waiting to Buy Google GID5B On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones in India, or just waiting to get the Price of Google GID5B in India. All we can do is wait for the price or the release date.
Till then we can only look at these pics in anticipation:
