Danish audio brand Libratone has a reputation for attractive speakers and headphones that also sound pretty decent. Its Made for Google USB-C earbuds and made and more wireless-but-wired Track+ models both impressed us, so we're excited to see the company launch its first true wireless earbuds.
In fact, two new models have been announced, the Track Air and Track Air+. We're most interested in the latter of those, however, since it features active noise cancellation. Both versions look much like the first-generation Track earbuds except with the cables cut off. The triangular casing might look a little cumbersome, but with Libratone's usual high-quality finish, I expect they'll look and feel rather lovely.
Each Track Air+ earbud weighs just 5.6g and they're capable of tuning out 30dB of external noise. You'll be able to adjust the ANC level through the Libratone app, too. Six hours of playback on a single charge is promised, with a further three full charges in the case. The other neat trick is wireless charging, as we see on Apple's newer AirPods and Samsung's Galaxy Buds.
Unlike Sony's highly-anticipated new true wireless earbuds, the Track Air+ features IPX4 sweat and splash resistance, so you can use them to exercise and won't need to worry if you get caught in the rain. A strong and stable connection boasted, thanks to Bluetooth 5.0. Touch controls are complemented by automatic wear detection so your music won't keep playing once you take the buds out, and a dual-mic will hopefully make for acceptable call quality.
The Track Air variant is practically identical except it lacks noise cancellation. That does mean improved battery life of 8 hours, however, and up to 32 hours in total with what's in the case, which is also capable of wireless charging.
Both models go on sale later this month in Europe, but we're waiting on US availability and pricing. The Track Air+ will cost £179 / €199 / 1.499 DKK and will be an Amazon exclusive, to begin with. The first 400 people to buy it will get a free wireless charging plate (worth £34 / €39). The Track Air will retail for £139 / €159 / 699 DKK. Find out more on the official site, and keep an eye out for our upcoming review.
No wires. No noise.
New true wireless noise cancelling earbuds from Libratone offer superior audio technology in stylish Danish design.
LONDON, 9th JULY 2019: TRACK Air+, Libratone’s new true wireless earbuds with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), have launched in the UK.

Designed in Libratone’s trademark, elegant Danish design, TRACK Air+ are available in both Black and White. The earbuds retail at £179 and will be available from 15th July exclusively on Amazon*.
The ultra-lightweight earbuds, weighing only 5.6 grams each, are one of the lightest and most compact on the market. TRACK Air+ delivers rich, true sound that’s usually reserved for big, bulky headphones. Punching well above their weight, TRACK Air+ features innovative noise cancellation which automatically adapts to your surroundings, tuning out an impressive 30dB of noise, and the noise cancelling level can also be adjusted manually.
The TRACK Air+ true wireless earbuds deliver six hours of battery time on a full charge. When you need more juice, there’s no need to go searching for a plug; simply place the earbuds into their pocket-size wireless charging case which guarantees a further three full charges. That’s 24 hours of music without even needing a socket, so you can enjoy your favourite tunes, or podcasts, on repeat wherever you are.
Libratone believes there is no point to a great pair of earphones if you can’t use them wherever and whenever you want. That’s why TRACK Air+ feature a sweat and splash-proof premium design (IPX4) that makes it suitable for any weather. If you can handle it, chances are these earbuds can too.
TRACK Air+ boast clever technology that mirrors your usage patterns and a strong Bluetooth (BT 5.0) connection that never drops off. No need to take your phone out of your pocket, the earbuds know when you’re wearing them and when you’re not, automatically stopping the music when not in use. Customisable touch controls mean you can pick up calls with a simple tap. Whilst thanks to the dual-mic, you will be heard on calls, just as well as you hear them.
TRACK Air+ is available from 15th July and will be sold exclusively, for a time limited period, on Amazon retailing at a highly-competitive £179. The first 400 customers will also receive a free Libratone COIL charging plate, which will retail at £34. For further product information visit www.libratone.com or Amazon.co.uk/Libratone
