Firefly - An Advanced Situational Awareness Wireless Earbuds

Be in two worlds at once. Get lost in your favorite songs and have full awareness of your outside surrounding when you want it. Firefly offers a premium Graphene sound, an ambient sound feature that filters in external noise for extra safety during sports, and especially designed ear fit for longterm comfort.

With it’s 16 hours play time, fast charging capabilities, and an unbreakable Bluetooth 5.0 connection, you will never miss a beat again.

Studies found 8% of pedestrians accidents in urban cities are caused by the usage of electronics. We want to decrease this number and especially engineered a situational awareness feature to do so. The feature enables external sounds to filter in to let runners, cyclists, and daily commuters stay alert while still listening to their favorite music.

Along with an intuitive control system, Firefly lets you stay powered for up to 16 hours. Unlike other wireless earphones, we worked closely with our suppliers to engineer the best performing battery technology on the market.   

With just a 10 minute charge, enjoy up to 2 hours of playtime or 4 hours of premium music with only a 30-minute charge.

Compatible with Siri and Google Assistant, access your personal assistants with its quick and easy access button function.   

Get all the information delivered straight to your ears. Plan a beach trip with friends hands-free. Access Siri or Google Assistant with a single tap to see what the weather is like and who’s free this weekend.

Bike, climb, lift, or hike without the fear of losing your earphones. With more than 14 years of experience, we have designed the best ear tips to perfectly fit your ears without falling even during the most rigorous activities. Tested with 100+ human ears, the Firefly has the best fit for all-day comfort.

Note: If you lose one Firefly earphone, we sell individual earphones as well.

To accompany the best fitting earphones, we had to incorporate the finest sound quality. Firefly utilized Graphene to construct a rigid nanomembrane that’s 100 times harder than steel with only a fraction of the weight. By doing so, it improves the sound quality, treble enhancements, noise isolation, and overall sound quality.

Don’t you hate it when the sound doesn’t sync up with the video? Sound latency and unstable connections are always major problems for Bluetooth devices. However, with Firefly’s ultra-stable Bluetooth connectivity, that’s a thing of the past.

It’s engineered with the latest Bluetooth 5.0 connection and has a functioning range of up to 33 ft, 2 times faster connection and data transmission speed compared to Bluetooth 4.2, so you’ll never have to miss a sound again.

And with its automatic pairing software, just take your Firefly out of its case and they will automatically connect to the previously paired device in less than a second.

The Firefly is equipped with IPX5 water-proof.
The Firefly is equipped with IPX5 water-proof.

Keep your earphones dry while you’re not. Firefly is IPX5 waterproof. This means Firefly can withstand the pressure of a gushing nozzle for at least 3 mins. You might not encounter gushing nozzles anytime soon, but can now feel at ease when it rains.

Unlike other earphones that break due to water, sweat corrosion or air moisture, Firefly also adopted a patented water safe nano coating by LIQUIPEL to protect against all the elements. Now, you can get wet, but your earphones doesn’t have to.

Combined with the ambient sound technology, Firefly is here to keep your pump and safe while you’re hiking, climbing, running, biking, or anything else you’re into.

Give people your full attention. At Firefly, we have engineered the latest telecommunication technology to free you from any restrictions. Make calls and talk conveniently through both the earphones.

Making it as easy as possible, we’ve included everything you need to connect and activate the Firefly earphones immediately.

We started as an OEM Bluetooth headsets and speakers manufacturer. Nowadays, we have our own brand with more than 10 million pieces sold to 70+ countries across the world.

Risks and challenges

Before launching our project on Kickstarter, we’ve made multiple prototypes for Firefly, went through multiple rounds of manufacturing feedback with our partners, and built out a detailed schedule. Apart from Firefly, we’re experienced in create professional Bluetooth earphones and speakers.

Therefore, we already have existing tech and partners to cooperate with the product design and production. The above videos and pictures shown on the campaign page are working prototypes of pilot run. We are committed to delivering Firefly on time with the highest quality.
