An earphone system for use by a wearer includes earphone, a microphone, actuation switches, a battery with wireless charging and sensors for sensing biometrics of the wearer in the ear and environmental conditions. The individual earphones are arranged for communication with a portable communications device (PCD) for signal processing and external communication. The system is programed to transmit sounds from the PCD to the wearer, to provide enhanced hearing of sounds detected by the microphone to be transmitted to the wearer in dependence on a hearing test, for noise cancellation, to communicate different sounds to each earphone and for processing of biometrics data obtained by said sensor.
