Rather than cramming all the technology and hardware into the earbud itself resulting in unwanted bulk or an oversized fit, the design of the Relay Sports Wireless places the batteries & electronics into 2 pods on the connecting wire you wear around your neck. This also makes it easier to pull one out for conversation without missing a step.
