The world’s most popular TWS products are the Apple AirPods. But agree this is a matter of attitude. In addition to listening to songs and talking, what else can headphones do? It turns out there is a new function added to traditional earbuds. And Apple and other major manufacturers should look into this matter. Today, a second-tier Chinese manufacturer announced the world’s first TWS that can convert voice to text. iFLYTEK released its first TWS true wireless smart headset ‘iFLYBUDS’. Due to the aforementioned functionality, it can replace voice recorders and other devices.
iFLYBUDS has three core AI functions: real-time call transfer, smart dial recognition, and call translation comparison. Users can free their hands and efficiently record and communicate in scenes such as self-driving, commuting, and meetings.

After the call is over, it can form an intelligent summary and automatically extract key content. It supports quick search of call content, smartphone and computer multi-terminal sharing, and editing.
In terms of smart dialing recognition, the iFLYBUDS supports multiple ways to distinguish between duplicate names and homophonic problems of contacts.
Compared with voice assistants such as Siri, iFLYBUDS is more natural. You only need to say the name to dial. And you can do it in one sentence. It is a pure voice interaction without watching the screen.
In terms of call translation, the iFLYBUDS can translate the content of the call into Chinese characters in real-time during an English call. It has also made special optimizations for rare professional vocabularies such as industry terminology and slang. The manufacturer claims it will support more languages in the future.
