Hearables are wearable devices worn in the ears, enabling users to enjoy audio content, engage in phone calls, monitor their health and physical activity, and access real-time information services, such as traffic updates. The inception of hearables dates back to 2014, but it was the launch of Apple’s AirPods in 2016 that propelled these devices into the mainstream spotlight.
