Pebble-sized Poppins makes any wired headphones wireless

Its debut Indiegogo product was the Smart Buckle – a watch strap that turns any timepiece into a fitness tracker – and now the Gooseberry’s second project, which makes any headphones wireless “in less than 60 seconds”, has also been fully backed.

The pebble-shaped Poppins connects to any 3.5mm audio jack (whether your headphones or a system) and transmits music from your phone or tablet over Bluetooth.

The claimed battery life is seven hours, making it something akin to a portable Google Chromecast Audio – although whether it sounds as good is yet to be heard.

With a click of a button, two Poppins can also be paired to a single device so that you and your friend can listen to the same music together. You can also enable hands-free calling.

Poppins comes in blue, green, red and brown colours, and comes with a magnetic clip so you don't lose it.

It costs around $40, though various ‘early bird’ deals available now include one for $19 (plus $15 UK shipping), two for $35 (+$18 UK shipping), and even a box of 50 for $1000 – a Poppin for every person in your life.

Don't forget Black Friday is just around the corner, and you'll be able to keep track of all the best deals on our Best Black Friday deals page.
