About this project
THE TRUU VISION
High technology and pure innovation define Truu. Wireless earbuds that charge wirelessly. Truu is changing the industry by providing a true wire and hassle free experience. Place the earbuds on our carefully designed charger and the wireless charging will take care of the rest. No wires, no charging cases, no hassle.
The name comes from the industry term “true wireless” which has become the industry descriptor for wireless earbuds. We believe it doesn't get any truer than this.
MAGNETISM + TRUU WIRELESS = PERFECT MATCH
The two earbuds are beautifully connected by grade N52-magnets. The earbuds are activated by separating these magnets. The charger is also equipped with magnets to facilitate the wireless charging. The most effective charging is made by separating the two earbuds before placing them on the charger.
FRIEND OF ALL EARS
The earbud design is derived from careful studies of the ear anatomy and results in a perfect in-ear fit that remains in your ear no matter shape and size. The lines of the Truu earbud gently follows the ear and rests in the bottom of the ear.
Additionally, Truu earbuds are equipped with Comply™ foam tips. We have tested all foam ear tip products out there and we have concluded that Comply™ has the best performance.
THE WIRELESS FREEDOM
We believe the future is wireless and there is no running away from it.
1. Not having to plug your earbuds into cords or place them in cases is pure freedom.
2. We want the wireless charger to be a generic interior piece in your home. The charger that comes with your Truu earbuds has a Scandinavian design with wooden details, inspired by our Swedish heritage. We aim to develop several charger concepts going forward in order to offer a range that can be a contributory interior detail for any home.
Bluetooth 4.1 means a highly stable Bluetooth connection with a trouble free pairing combined with a good Bluetooth range and low power consumption. See specifics below.
This was not negotiable for us. A sophisticated mechanical design has ensured robust earbuds with the very highest build quality.
The right earbud has a built-in microphone which enables the user to also make calls with Truu.
To make life simpler for the user, we choose a battery with 5 hours playing time, so your Truu will last a whole day.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
We have a passionate team in place, eager to get going with testing & certifications. The components are tested and the design is ready. So far, all of this is developed with the help of savings and a lot of hard work. Three main points are relevant for the funding:
- Build and design all toolings and make Truu production ready
- Compliance testing & certifications
- Source components and production for the world's first true wireless earbuds with wireless charging
The prototypes were created with the help from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and their facilities. The video was filmed with the help of two friends from the media institute of Stockholm: Fredrik Lönning and Adam Bassari. You are our heroes!
Risks and challenges
We are certain that the components will work together and fit inside the dimensions of our design. Although, one can never be completely sure until production is scalable under an economic point of view and we have tested the product over and over again.
Another question is the patent. We have filed an application for patent and registered the design at the Swedish patent office. Patent pending.
