Evangelion has been on a roll recently! Not only is there a new Uniqlo UT x Evangelion collab, there’s even a new lineup of EVA-themed Tamagotchi. If those aren’t enought EVA goodness for you, Japanese high-end audio brand final recently unveiled a new line of True Wireless Stereo (TWS) earbuds inspired by Neon Genesis Evangelion.
EVA collabs usually come with three color schemes, each inspired by Shinji Ikari, Asuka Soryu, and Rei Ayanami. The final x EVA earbuds though are a bit different. While the first two are inspired by Shinji and Asuka’s EVA Unit 01 and 02, the third color option is based on Mark 06 piloted by Kaworu Nagisa in the Rebuild of Evangelion film series.
All three earbuds feature striking colorways, a swell as charging cases inspired by the iconic EVA mechs. Each pair of TWS buds also come with alternate ear tips and a USB Type-C cable for charging.
While we’re definitely loving their designs, what makes these earbuds special is that the voice connection guide is spoken NERV operator Maya Ibuki (voiced by Miki Nagasawa). This is definitely a nice touch for EVA fans!
The final x Evangelion TWS earbuds don’t come cheap though. Each pair is priced at JPY 18,000 (around PHP 8,500) and are currently available for pre-order now in Japan via the NTV Shop.
UPDATE: The earbuds are also available for pre-order in the Philippines via Onegai Onii-chan. Each pair is priced at PHP 13,350, with a minimum down payment of PHP 6,500 to pre-order.
