CES 2019: Nura miniturize with new NuraLoop earbuds

Nura have officially unveiled their second product at this year's CES, the NuraLoop earbuds.

As with last year's Nuraphones, the NuraLoop earbuds utilise a self-learning engine that highly sensitive microphones and advanced signal processing techniques to measure and then optimise audio output to suit a user's ears.

Nura say the new earbuds will be able to be used both wirelessly and via a cable. They'll also tout a lightweight design, active noise-cancellation and a single "TouchDial" control scheme.  Nura say the earbuds boast "all day battery life" but it's hard to tell what the number that actually boils down to.

In our review of the Nuraphones, we came away impressed with the listening experience but slighted on the price. 

"The Nuraphones are unique, and for people that’ll be enough. However, for a lot of others, I feel like they’ll struggle to justify their higher price-tag in the face of the increasingly-affordable noise-cancelling options out there. If you’re not an audiophile, $500 is a lot of money to spend on a pair of headphones - and while the Nuraphones sound good, I don’t think they sound quite that good."

That said, Nura have continued to improve the headphones since they launched. The company added a new ANC mode back in July 2019.

No word yet on pricing but expect more news on the NuraLoop earbuds to come later in the year.

Disclosure - PC World Australia's coverage of this year's CES in Las Vegas was sponsored by Intel and MSI who covered the costs of our flights and accommodation.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
