+ what I call “necklace-style” (as opposed to neckband) are bluetooth earphones whose cable is an open loop (that ends at the two earpieces) and you hear them hanging on your neck like a necklace [you can of course also wear them reverse-baseball-cap style, with the “necklace” being on your back instead of your chest]

On a contemporaneous note, Tuesday 5/18/21 is Google I/0 2021 day where there might be some audio related Google announcements. You can watch the livestream/repeat YouTube-embedded below…

Speaking of announcements, this week has developed a bit of a free “HD music” subscription upgrade with both Apple and Amazon offering “HD Music” at the same price as their standard ($10/month) music subscription. It will be interesting to see if Google “price matches” this with a Google I/O announcement. Google Play Music is of course dead, and out of its ashes came YouTube Music/Premium/whatever-they-call-it-these-days.
