Ears are like fingerprints: no 2 are exactly the same.
It’s the perennial problem with earbudsâthey never match your ears quite right so that they either fall out while you’re running around or even they start to hurt after putting on them for an extended period of time. Occasionally it’s both if you buy those $5 ones in the CVS checkout collection. Even high-quality, expensive earbuds appear to operate on an one-size-fits-all mentality. *cough AirPods cough*
A Kickstarter marketing campaign is attempting to disrupt the true wifi earbuds market by creating a good earphone that completely conforms towards the shape of your ears. There are some wireless earbuds on the market that have a flexible suggestion to attempt a better fit. The COMPETE FIT, from Japanese startup Compete Style, Â is made almost completely out of a flexible silicone that will reshapes to fit your ear. Not just the particular ear tip, but apparently anything that touches your ear is gentle, flexible, waterproof and anti-bacterial.
Clearly this is an innovation that’s resonating with people. The VIE FIT arrived at its goal in just over 24 hours of being on Kickstarter. Along with less than two weeks left in the advertising campaign, they’ve already met two of the stretch goals and are well on the way to meeting the last one in $200, 000. Â
Vie Design believes in their product too, also throwing shade at AirPods within gif form.
In conjunction with the game-changing flexibility, VIE SUIT attempts to fix some other problems with genuine wireless earbuds as well as a few functions that we’ve come to expect within higher-end Bluetooth headphones but continue to be nice to have. Check out the full collection of features in the video beneath.
VIE FIT will be costing $140, sitting right around the standard regarding true wireless headphones. If you be quick, you can get the Early Bird price of $89, only available to the first 2, 000 backers. The campaign wraps on November 30, with units planned to be delivered in March associated with 2018. Â
You’ll just have to appear a little like an alien with your AirPods until then.
