Ink’d Wireless provides a sleek and low-profile design that enables wireless freedom without compromising your style. “Wireless bud designs with an integrated around-the-neck collar are a great hands-free solution for when you’re not wearing your earbuds.

With its noise-isolating fit and Supreme Sound™ premium audio profile, Ink’d Wireless delivers a full spectrum of rich, clear audio across all types of music and is comfortable enough for all-day wear. A built-in microphone and controls on the low-profile Flex Collar allow users to answer/end a call, track forward/back, play/pause, or adjust volume. Ink’d® Wireless connects to devices from up to 33 feet away and offers up to 8 hours of battery life. Ink’d® Wireless gives consumers a lightweight, low-profile design and premium audio performance for $49.99. Ink’d Wireless is now available online and at select retailers nationwide.
