What We Delivered

Key Objectives

DesignEdge and Qualcomm collaborated to create innovative earbuds that showcase Qualcomm’s TrueWireless™ Stereo technology. Industrial design and new product architecture was implemented into a sports earbud with secure hold, designed to eliminate the need for wires and offer users a wire-free stereo audio experience.


DesignEdge meticulously designed the sports earbuds to eliminate the need for wires while ensuring a comfortable fit. They achieved this by iteratively developing rapid 3D prototypes, refining user fit and addressing challenges related to ergonomics, aesthetics and comfort within an extremely compact form factor. Their unveiling at CES in Las Vegas garnered positive recognition in the market.

“We engaged DesignEdge Cambridge Ltd over the course of three iterations of our in-ear headsets (our Biometric headset, Qualcomm TrueWireless Earbuds and sports wired version of the Qualcomm TrueWireless Earbuds). Our engagement lasted several months and resulted in the production of three form factors for our projects for our internal use during which time DesignEdge provided us with extremely valuable technical guidance, design help and support for our projects. We unveiled the headsets at CES in Las Vegas and they have since received positive recognition in the market.”
