About this project
No matter how many armbands or special wire wind ups you can get, nothing solves the problem with cords. Here at Break Free, we hate when a simple jog can turn frustrating after the earbuds constantly clunk against your body making a frustrating noise. So we did something about it. In a world of wireless, why are earbuds the exception? Introducing the revolutionary new way to listen to music.
We know all you truly care about is the product you'll receive in the mail, so here are all the facts:
- You will receive a pair (for both ears) of our bluetooth headset
- The pair connects to your bluetooth device wirelessly
- Don't have a bluetooth device? Don't worry! In each package we'll include a transmitter that plugs into any 3.5mm audio jack and the earbuds will connect through that.
- About as small as a hearing aid, and less bulky than a typical bluetooth headset
- Almost invisible to the naked eye (see above image).
- Microphone option will be available at no additional cost
- Touch the right earbud for 3 seconds to mute the music if needed, touch again to resume.
- Shell of device features magnets that attach the pair to each other to minimize chances of misplacing them.
- 14 hours of continuous battery life.
Each set of our bluetooth connecting earpieces costs about $85 to produce, and will go on sale for $99. But since we love Kickstarter (and we need the money) we're basically giving them away!
Each reward is a great choice at any option and we greatly appreciate any support!
We just finished up the final product and we're ready to move into mass production. We need funds to pay for manufacturing costs, and marketing so that we can get it in a store near you as soon as possible. If we reach our goal, they'll be in stores by years end.
We appreciate all positive comments but PLEASE send ALL questions in message form to us directly. If we get enough of the same question we'll answer it in our FAQ section. Stay tuned, we'll be finished our website breakfreeaudio.com in a few months but meanwhile check out our friends at: touchzerogravity.com

Yes! After we are successfully funded, we will create a survey asking which color you want.
Our developers are working around the clock to finish it up. We hope that it will be done before the project completes funding.
Our product works like a bluetooth device, however ours is a pair and fits around both ears while maintaining discretion and is far less bulky than a bluetooth headset. Also, you will be able to stream music from your device right to the earbuds.
We conducted a small, 75 person test where they ranked sound quality among 14 name brand earbuds including ours. We came in second, just behind Beats Audio which is double the price of us. Apple earbuds came in 7th.
The option with the mic more closely resembles a traditional bluetooth headset. We have gotten a lot of questions about this and we'll be uploading some images of it shortly.
The earbud casing is a durable plastic. However, we are looking to create a more durable, aluminum version at the same price.
Yes! Everyone has a different size ear, so we'll include a small, medium, and large set in the box, and if you ever lose them we'll send em free of charge.
The pair of earbuds works within 5 feet of the device it is connected to. However, it will still work with just one earbud if you want to use it as a bluetooth earpiece and can easily disconnect/connect to different devices.
We haven't found any issues with users who wear glasses since most eyewear does not wrap completely around the ear and instead they rest on the top of the ear. When wearing the earbud, on the top of the ear is just a very small wire, so we expect little if any discomfort.
In the package you will receive a charging port that is triangle shaped with 3 wires coming out of it. 1 wire connects to a power outlet, and the other 2 connect to the left and right earbud to charge. A very small charging port is located on the inside of the earbud, not viewable during use.
