Belkin Announces AirPods Rival, Debuts Wireless Charger with MagSafe

Belkin has today announced two new products at the online-only CES 2021, including a set of AirPods-like in-ear headphones with noise-cancelling mics called the SoundForm Freedom True Wireless Earbuds, and a 2-in-1 BoostCharge Pro wireless charger stand with MagSafe.

Belkin SoundForm Freedom

Set to rival Apple’s AirPods Pro, Belkin’s new SoundForm Freedom earbuds combine Qualcomm’s QCC3046 Bluetooth chip with Environmental Noise Cancellation (ENC) to minimize interference with the onboard microphones.

The design is also clearly inspired by the AirPod range, with a white gloss and long stalks. The earbuds will also be offered in black. Other main features of the Belkin SoundForm Freedom include:

  • Charge with any Qi wireless charger or using a USB-C port
  • 15-minute fast-charge adds two hours of enjoyment
  • Features custom ear tips in three sizes
  • Rated IPX5 for sweat and splash resistance

Belkin has not yet announced the price, with a tentative release date of April.

The company plans on releasing the 2-in-1 charger in April for US $99.95 in black and white colours.
