True Wireless refers to peripheral devices like earbuds and headphones which are wireless, of course. They are designed to offer unprecedented freedom of movement. Those who hate cords and want to eliminate them no matter what the price will not regret them.
True Wireless Explained
Wireless accessories consist of items that don’t require a physical cable connection for interacting with a media source. They use Bluetooth or other alternative ways to establish a wireless connection. However, they are not truly wireless. They still rely on physical cables to function. Some headphones, for instance, have a wired connection between two electroacoustic transducers, and each ear is connected by a band.
This makes it very obvious that wireless and True Wireless headphones are two different things. The true wireless technology completely lacks a cable or connector between the earpieces.
3 Common Wireless Technologies
If you have found yourself wondering how the True Wireless technology works, here’s the answer. Most true wireless accessories operate on four of the following functions:
BT (Bluetooth) is the most used radio technology for pairing devices. It differs from the Nest WiFi system because it only connects Bluetooth compatible devices. BT has a small coverage range as compared to Wi-Fi which extends up to 150 feet indoors and 300 feet outdoors.
Infrared is capable of delivering a higher data transfer rate. Its 980 wavelength is similar to laser light. This technology is available for diffuse point applications and point-to-point applications. It is a highly secure technology with low power consumption.
3: Radio Frequency
It’s a type of wireless communication that travels across a wide range of Spectrum starting from 30 Hz to 300 GHz. The headphones that use RF technology have a greater range extending up to 300 feet.
How Do True Wireless Earbuds Work?
Now that you know all the basics of how True Wireless offers a better audio experience and removes bulky cables from the picture, the question is, how does it work?

True Wireless earbuds have Qualcomm microchips that create a connection between the audio playback device and media source. True Wireless device connects to the media source, which could be your smartphone, TV, or PC through a Bluetooth connection.
Currently, there are two generations of True Wireless technology. The first one is True Wireless and the second one is True Wireless Plus.
True Wireless (First Generation)
This technology uses a single device (earbud or speaker) for creating a primary connection to the source of media. It then connects the secondary earbud to the first for creating a connection. The primary connection receives L and R channel information using device one and then L channel is forwarded through the secondary connection to the secondary device.
True Wireless Plus (Second Generation)
This technology creates a connection between both earbuds first, allowing the media source to create a connection to both earbuds at the same time. This lifts strain on one earbud hence extending battery life and improving the strength of the connection.
Why Go Fully Wireless?
To answer that, let’s talk about the benefits of this technology.
Eliminating the cord from the picture is true convenience. Just wear the earbuds and you are ready to enjoy a superb audio experience. You could be cooking, working out, cleaning the house, or just go about the daily routine. Ever called Cox Customer care for your queries and concerns? The bliss offered by these earbuds is the same!
The Bluetooth range in the latest True Wireless accessories has increased to up to 30 feet. So, feel free to move around without carrying your phone.
Say Goodbye to Untangling
Do you loathe untangling the cord of the headphones? Have your headphones broken because of a faulty cord? If that’s you, worry no more. The True Wireless earbuds are easy to access. No unwinding is involved.
Pairing the earbuds is super easy, no need to plug them in. Once the earbuds are set up and paired to the device, next time, they will sync automatically. You just have to turn on the Bluetooth to connect.
Is the True Wireless Technology Safe?
Absolutely! If you have wireless Internet powered by Cox Internet Preferred or any other ISP, True Wireless technology works similarly to your Wi-Fi. A good thing is the frequencies of this technology are extremely low. They are not dangerous for human use at all.
The only precaution to take is placing the earbuds in their case after usage. Make sure they aren’t exposed to frequent temperature changes.
Since the name is True Wireless, your earbuds or other accessories charge wirelessly. So far, true wireless gadgets don’t have great battery life. Maintaining a connection between the earbuds and the phone demands a lot of power. The earbuds normally take all the load. As technology progresses, battery life will improve for sure.
