If there is one complication many models share from the operation department, it is that it is easy to inadvertently pause audio, jump a track, or muster a voice assistant once you merely supposed to take an earpiece out or adjust it slightly. There is not a great deal of property on the majority of the earpieces we have tested, and thus much of the outer panel region is devoted to home controls.Early on two versions went in diametrically opposite directions concerning on-ear controls. The Bragi Dash provide a plethora of ways to tap and swipe, and even use an accelerometer that allows for head motion to be utilized for gesture control. It is a whole lot to memorize, and there are lots of methods to misfire. Apple’s answer to on-ear controls is to do away with some completely. The AirPods lack track navigation or volume controls–dual tapping can summon Siri or play/pause, but not both, giving them the simplest (and many limited) controllers of all of the pairs we’ve tested.Newer versions from Bose and B&O Play figure out how to hit a balance between operability and layout. The Bose for instance, uses actual tactile switches to control playback, call management, monitor navigation, and volume, while the B&O Play cleverly divides controls between the two earpieces–tapping on the left ear, for instance, will skip a path backward, while tapping on the right will jump forward. Despite having to do a little more thinking before you tap, eventually the branch of controllers between the two earpieces reveals itself to be instinctive. Thus on-ear control panels are getting more user-friendly and creative, but there is still a ways to go before they catch up with traditional wireless versions.
