With headphones, there are two ways you can go: showy Beats-style cans, or dinky in-ears.

And they don't come much dinkier than Earin's in-ears; it claims they're the “world's smallest wireless earbuds”. Although it’s hard to prove, it does look minute, judging from how it looks just a tad bigger than a tablet. The ones you take for headaches, not your iPad Air.

Backed by more than 3700 people on Kickstarter, these completely wireless and cable-less audio tools have raised north of £400,000 from an original funding goal of £179,000 – and there are still 35 days left on the clock.

The Earin earbuds connect to your phone (and each other) via Bluetooth 4.0 and the aptX audio codec, and use balanced armature speakers (found in professional in-ear monitors and hearing aids). Earin claims that they're a new design, "featuring extended response in the low end and vastly improved high frequency response." 

Battery life is, of course, a concern; to alleviate it, Earin comes with a USB-powered charging capusle. Pop your earbuds into the keyring-sized pod, and they'll automatically charge.

The other worry with wireless earbuds is whether they'll fall out. Earin comes with a range of different foam tips that let you customise your fit, plus a silicone rubber concha lock that fits around them and holds them in place when you're out jogging. 

Want to get your hands on a set? Sadly, the early bird deals are all gone, so the starting price on Kickstarter is £120. And beware: if you’ve got massive fingers, good luck digging them out of your ears.

No really, we’re not kidding.
