TL;DR: The crystal-clear PaMu Scroll wireless headphones are a true competitor to the coveted AirPods, and you can grab a pair for just $69.99 in the Mashable Shop.


Look to your left, and then to your right. It’s almost certain that you’ll spot a handful of people with earbuds on. Whether they’re listening to podcasts or blasting playlists — or simply trying to avoid conversation — there’s a reason why people are glued to their earbuds.

The true wireless earbud revolution is here, folks, and it’s here to stay.

But now that cable-free earphones are cementing their status as a necessity rather than luxury, there comes another set of problems. More and more companies are coming out with their own version of wireless buds just for the heck of it. 

The PaMu Scroll earbuds, however, stand out from the crowd. These true wireless earbuds raised $3 million on Indiegogo, and we’re here to tell you why. But first, some good news: you can snag a pair here for 53% off.

So what makes these puppies tick? Here goes:

Crystal-clear sonics

The point of buying earphones in the first place is to thoroughly enjoy the immersive sound. PaMu Scroll, of course, does not disappoint. These babies boast deep bass and crisp, clear sound with minimal distortion, giving off the illusion that you’re having your own exclusive concert.

Uninterrupted Bluetooth streaming and enhanced ergonomics

Thanks to Bluetooth 5.0 technology, these true wireless earbuds allow you to listen for longer and with fewer dropped connections. They feature auto-pairing functionality, so you won’t have to manually connect your device with every use. Plus, they’re engineered for comfort, including different-sized ear tips to fit your ears.

Touch controls and smart assistant support

You can play, pause, switch songs, answer calls, or connect to Siri, Alexa, or Google Assistant with the built-in touch controls. With just a single click, you can get quick access to your A.I. assistant whenever you want.

Unique and stylish charging case

One of its most unique features is the accompanying scroll-shaped charging case. Unlike AirPods, which come with a case that looks like gum packaging, PaMu Scroll is equipped with a stylish case that adds a touch of elegance to your wireless listening setup.

Available in two delightful designs — graphene & glory,  — you can now get a pair on sale for $69.99 — a savings of 53%.

Sprint turns on 5G service in four cities

Make that three big US carriers that have hopped aboard the 5G bandwagon — Sprint has launched its 5G service in parts of Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and Kansas City. You’ll need to wait until May 31st to buy the LG V50 ThinQ or HTC 5G Hub to take advantage of those speeds, but the experience might be better than for some rivals when Sprint is boasting of the biggest “initial” 5G coverage to date.

Service should expand in the “coming weeks” to include parts of Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix and Washington, DC. You can also expect the Galaxy S10 5G to arrive sometime in the summer.

As with deployments at other carriers, there are going to be plenty of caveats. Coverage is still likely to be spotty, especially indoors where high-frequency 5G often can’t penetrate. And whatever you think of the first 5G devices, it remains true that your options will expand significantly in the months ahead. Early 5G service is still focused primarily on bragging rights, and it could take a long while before it’s as polished as LTE.

The rollout leaves just one major US carrier left without 5G: Sprint’s would-be partner, T-Mobile. It’s expected to debut faster service in the second half of the year. Provided that happens in a timely fashion, though, it could be just a matter of months before it’s a question of which 5G network suits your needs, rather than whether you have a 5G option in the first place.

AT&T just made it possible to pay your phone bill with bitcoin

Have some spare bitcoin kicking around? You can put it toward your phone service. AT&T says it has become the first big US wireless carrier to accept cryptocurrency for online phone bill payments. Choose the BitPay option at MyAT&T and you can cover your bill with bitcoin instead of conventional funds. You can’t use this in-store, alas, but it could make sense if you’d rather save old-school money for other purposes.

Will this see a lot of use in the near future? Probably not. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies still tend to be volatile, and they’re still fighting for legitimacy in the public eye. It shouldn’t hurt AT&T to experiment with the feature, however, and it might be helpful in the long run if and when digital currency becomes commonplace.

Atari shows off joystick and controller for its retro VCS console

Atari VCS

When the Atari VCS team decided to remake the retro console, it knew the controllers would be just as important as the box itself. After all, there’s no gaming accessory quite as iconic as the Atari CX40 joystick. Earlier this spring, we got a glimpse of what the VCS will look like, and now, the company has revealed more details about the Atari VCS Classic Joystick and Modern Controller. Both are a carefully crafted mix of essential features, both old and new, the company said in a blog post.

According to Atari, the Classic Joystick is “designed to capture the spirit and functionality” of the CX40, but it now has Bluetooth and USB connectivity. The center stick is fully digital, and its default settings map to the D-pad on contemporary gamepad controllers. It also rotates so you can play games like Pong, Breakout and Night Driver, which were previously better suited for Paddle Controllers. The team also added a rumble feature and swapped the red lights for orange.

The Classic Joystick brings a few changes to the “fire” button, too. For starters, you’ll notice a second trigger button placed on the corner of the unit body. You’ll be able to tap it with a finger, on either the right or left side, and it will work more like a front bumper button on a modern gamepad. Atari made the design decision to be more ergonomic and to spare gamers’ thumbs.

The team introduced fewer changes to the VCS Modern Controller, sticking to the widely-accepted form-factor of controllers on the market. It’s “a solid, reliable performer and it should please VCS owners, or anyone looking for a high quality, stylish Bluetooth/USB controller for PC and mobile gaming,” the company said. As an added perk, like the Classic Joystick, the Modern Controller is fully re-mappable.

Atari VCS says the hardware is almost ready for final production, which would match previous statements that the console will be ready by the end of 2019. That should be a relief for fans, especially those that pre-ordered the device through an Indiegogo campaign one year ago and have patiently waited through delays.
