Earbuds that Break Language Barriers: Introducing the Timekettle WT2 Edge Translator Earbuds

Picture this: You’re in a new country for the first time. You picked up a few phrases in the local language before landing at your destination, but even ordering a meal at the restaurant down the block from your hotel feels completely out of reach. 

But you’re starving — so you buck up and head out for a meal after dropping your things off in the hotel room.

You practice your order over and over in your head on the walk over, but when the host asks something you weren’t anticipating, you let out a dejected sigh and pull out your phone to open up Google Translate and ask them to repeat.

Most of us who travel internationally have a story or two like this. But it doesn’t have to be that way. This is where the Timekettle WT2 Edge translator earbuds come in. 

This sleek, AI-powered device looks like a pair of Apple Airpods, but it’s so much more than that: The Timekettle WT2 Edge allows for seamless and easy multilingual communication, whether you’re traveling somewhere new or just doing business with folks who don’t speak your language. 

Handheld translator devices have been around for a while now, but those are clunky at best and ineffective at worst. The WT2 Edge translator earbuds represent the next generation of translation technology. By combining the latest in machine translation technology with the glossy contemporary design you expect from leading tech companies like Apple and Samsung, the WT2 Edge translator earbuds allow you to connect with folks no matter what language they speak. 

That way, you don’t have to worry about fiddling around with some awkward device, allowing you to focus on what really matters — the things your conversation partner is saying.

How do the WT2 Edge translator earbuds work?

The WT2 Edge is the world’s first pair of truly bi-directional translator earbuds. And using them is simple: 

  • Connect the earbuds to your mobile device via Bluetooth
  • Choose your language pair from up to 40 languages in the Timekettle app
  • Start chatting!

The Timekettle WT2 Edge will automatically pick up your conversation partner’s speech and translate it into the language you’ve chosen, allowing for seamless multilingual communication. 

With a translation time between .5-3 seconds, expect fewer pauses in a conversation as you wait for a complete translation. And with its inconspicuous, easy-to-pack form factor that fits easily and comfortably into any ear, it’s common to forget Timekettle earbuds are there at all. Plus, the tool includes four different “smart” modes, which allow you to tweak the method of delivery according to the situation you need to use it in.

How is it different from other translator devices?

If this all sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, that’s not too far off: The company’s CEO, Leal Tian, was partly inspired to create these earbuds by Babel Fish — a character from A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy that allows people to speak and understand one another in any language.

But this science is far from fiction. Timekettle’s HybridComm technology powers the WT2 Edge and ensures that both parties can easily communicate without having to wait for awkward pauses and parse through unnatural phrase structure. This technological solution emphasizes communication over translation, enabling a far more natural communication flow.

The WT2 Edge translator earbuds, boasts a swath of impressive specs, including 95% accuracy in 40 languages and 93 accents, smart noise reduction with 12-hour battery life, and offline translation for eight languages. It’s also a great solution for international students on foreign exchange programs, with more than 200 schools already adopting the technology in the US. 

And when you consider the possible uses for international business and recreational travel, there truly is no limit to its potential — when you travel with the WT2 Edge translator earbuds, you’ll be able to chat with locals easily and fluently. 

Buyers can rest assured that Timekettle is one of the most respected names in the business and is already the top-selling brand in translator devices worldwide, with popularity exploding across North America, Europe, China, Japan, and Korea. What’s more, Timekettle has earned coveted international awards like the CES Innovation Award, iF Design Award, TechCrunch Top 5 Picks, and more.  

So if multilingual communication is a part of your life and work, it’s easy to imagine endless uses for Timekettle’s technology. And fortunately, their products come at an affordable price point: the WT2 Edge translator earbuds is just $349.99 — that’s a fraction of the price of other, bulkier and less efficient wearable translator devices.

But ultimately, hearing is believing, so check out what Timekettle has to offer for yourself. Put language barriers behind you and prepare for the wonderful places a good conversation can take you.
