Fairphone has made a name for itself by creating sustainable smartphones that are repairable and come with extended support. Now, the company seems to be branching out into a new product category with its Fairbuds XL noise-canceling headphones.

Details of the Headphones

Images of the Fairbuds XL headphones have been leaked online via WinFuture and Android Police. The headphones come in black and green color options and are made from recycled plastics, as evidenced by the speckles in the finish of each cup’s structure.

One side of the headphones has a button and a nub that looks like a dial or mini joystick. The headphones can also be folded inward towards the cushiony headband. The headphones come with USB-C and what appears to be an LED status light and microphone hole, but unfortunately, there is no 3.5mm jack. This is not surprising, as the company removed the headphone jack in its latest repairable Fairphone 4.

Pricing and Repairability

The leaked images were acquired by WinFuture through an unknown retailer, and the Fairbuds XL headphones do not have a solid price yet. However, WinFuture previously reported that they would cost €249 (approximately $275). There is no information yet on whether the headphones will be repairable, but Fairphone’s commitment to sustainability suggests that they will be.

Conclusion

Fairphone is expanding its product line with the upcoming release of its Fairbuds XL over-ear headphones. The headphones are made from recycled plastics and come with USB-C and an LED status light and microphone hole. There is no 3.5mm jack, but this is not surprising given the company’s recent removal of the headphone jack from its latest smartphone. The headphones do not have a solid price yet, but they are expected to cost €249 (approximately $275). It remains to be seen whether the headphones will be repairable, but Fairphone’s commitment to sustainability suggests that they will be.
