Beacon Signal Technology for improved Bluetooth Connectivity

Fine-tuning the Epic2 Bluetooth Earbuds goes all the way down to a tiny little antenna in the mic housing. With Beacon Signal Technology, we are able to provide skip-free tunes, even in the most demanding situation.

The Epic2's Beacon Signal Technology utilizes a ceramic Bluetooth antenna, which provides improved wireless connectivity and reduces environmental detuning. Bluetooth is a wireless technology that communicates from one device to another (more below). And thanks to Beacon Signal Technology and its ceramic mic, you'll enjoy a better earbud-to-device signal and uninterrupted tunes.

According to their website:

What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth is a global wireless communication standard that connects devices together over a certain distance. Think headset and phone, speaker and PC, basketball to smartphone and more. It is built into billions of products on the market today and connects the Internet of Things (IoT). If you haven’t heard of the IoT, go here.

How does Bluetooth work?
A Bluetooth device uses radio waves instead of wires or cables to connect to a phone or computer. A Bluetooth product, like a headset or watch, contains a tiny computer chip with a Bluetooth radio and software that makes it easy to connect. When two Bluetooth devices want to talk to each other, they need to pair. Communication between Bluetooth devices happens over short-range, ad hoc networks known as piconets. A piconet is a network of devices connected using Bluetooth technology. The network ranges from two to eight connected devices. When a network is established, one device takes the role of the master while all the other devices act as slaves. Piconets are established dynamically and automatically as Bluetooth devices enter and leave radio proximity.
