BLIP - Turn Headphones Wireless For $10!

HK$ 450,158

2,520

Blip is the lightest Bluetooth receiver you’ll ever see, but don’t be fooled by its size - this tiny device is big on sound and power. It makes any headphones wireless, and delivers crystal clear audio. Just clip it on, pair via Bluetooth, and enjoy wireless music and phone calls anytime, anywhere.

Wireless Music With Any Headphones 

With Blip, add Bluetooth capability and stream music wirelessly with any audio device, such as your smartphone, TV, power speakers, and even the audio system in your car. And thanks to Blip’s 3.5mm stereo output, you can keep your favorite headphones - just plug them into Blip, and they’ll automatically turn into wireless Bluetooth headphones!

Ultra Lightweight & Compact

At just 8 grams/0.28 oz, Blip is the lightest Bluetooth receiver you’ve ever seen. In fact, it’s as light as 2 sheets of paper. Don’t believe us? Just clip it onto your shirt or put it in your pocket - we guarantee you won’t feel a thing.

5-Hour Playback

We don’t mean to brag, but Blip can regenerate even faster than Wolverine. Just put it in the protective charging case - in 15 minutes, it will be fully charged, giving you 5 hours of listening time.

Intuitive Controls

Using your phone to control your music is so yesterday - even your grandma has moved on from that. With Blip, a twist or a touch is all you need to change tracks, adjust volume, or accept calls. It’s as easy as 1 2 3.

Active Noise Reduction   

Nothing should come between you and your music. Blip optimizes the sound quality for music and calls using its own noise reduction circuitry. The built-in microphone continuously listens to and reduces ambient noise, while the chip in Blip is capable of producing a signal-to-noise ratio of up to 105db.

Hands-Free Calling   

Talking on-the-go has never been easier. You can now accept or decline an incoming call with the touch of a button - no need to rummage through your bag or pockets for your phone. With Blip’s built-in echo-cancelling microphone and noise reduction technology, enjoy crisp and clear calls anywhere, whether it is with a loved one, your friends, or your potentially nightmarish boss.

Water-Resistant   

Blip is made to keep up with your active lifestyle. Whether you’re running (or singing) in the rain, drenched in sweat from an intensive workout, or just careless enough to spill water on Blip, your music will never be interrupted.

The Blip Clip

Use Blip wherever you go - whether you’re working out, commuting to work, at a coffee shop, or just chilling at home. Simply clip it onto your shirt or pocket, and enjoy on-the-go access to music and phone calls, no matter where you are.

Blip was designed to be minimal, stylish, and intuitively functional. The photos below show a closer look at the prototypes.

Hi Kickstarter, I am Alfred Lam, Founder of Zaffre Labs. As an OEM business, we produced parts and equipment for the big companies, who then stamped their own brand name on the finished product. The industry was once booming, but now our margins are increasingly squeezed under the pressure of these big brands.

That’s when we realized that with over 30 years of experience in manufacturing and consumer electronics, we could take the big leap to create our own product, and sell it as our own. So, we created Blip - a top-quality, affordable Bluetooth receiver - but the risks are still huge. Is there really a market for it? Would people be attracted to our design and features? Kickstarter is the perfect platform to launch Blip: not only will we be able to obtain the minimum order, which will keep our costs low, but we’ll also receive constructive feedback, a lot of which can be used to improve Blip before we go into mass production. Join us to bring the lightest Bluetooth receiver to life!

         
              
 
         

Risks and challenges

We understand that every project comes with its own unique risks and challenges; and our project is no different. However, our team has over 30 years of manufacturing in consumer electronics, so we are prepared to meet any challenges head on. We also noticed many Kickstarter projects have delays. To prevent the event of any delays for Blip, we waited until all the tooling was completed and we have a production prototype ready before launching our campaign here. If there are any challenges that may arise later, we promise to continue to communicate with everyone and overcome them together.
