When it comes to the gamut of audio listening devices from over the ears headphones to sleeker earphones, earbuds are emerging as the flavour of 2019. Not just marvels of miniaturization, they overcome the main hassle of in-ear pieces: their tendency to slip off. I have been trying out my second pair of earbuds this year -- ZeroG from Tagg -- and the category seems to be evolving with almost Darwinian precision.

Like all buds, the ZeroG comes in a box with doubles as a charger. I liked the little touch: when you snap open the lid, 1-4 green LEDs spring up to show you how much charge is left. Another evolutionary touch, the buds are the end of a short stem which houses the microphone. All the controls: pause, play, call in, out, etc are achieved by either tapping or holding either the left or right bud. It takes some remembering -- then it's a cinch. Each earbud weighs just 7 grams but houses a 40 mAh battery that is good for about 5 hours of listening. It syncs to your phone with the latest Bluetooth standard and I also liked the effect of the latest version of Qualcomm's passive noise-cancelling technology, cVc 8.0 which damps out much of the ambient noise, making for a more private listening experience. It sells for Rs 4,999.
