The main and most unusual feature of the Fairbuds XL headphones is their modular design, which allows users to take them apart and replace parts that have worn out or broken with original parts that the company sells, this is in contrast to other headphones on the market, which may be able to repair or replace one or another part of them. But not at the level of the new Fairbuds.

Among the different parts that can be replaced, you can also find the 800mAh battery integrated in the headphones, which offers over 26 hours of use with active noise filtering and more than 30 hours when the noise filtering is turned off.
