About this project
What Makes a Great Pair of Earphones?
A long battery life? A wide signal range? An inline control with a microphone? A way to keep listening to your music when you don't have the battery life for Bluetooth® mode? Noise isolation? Comfort? Cost? We at Nowall believe that a great pair of earphones needs to have all of these things, but most of all, they need to deliver your music as it was meant to be heard.
How Much of Your Music are You Missing?
Do you know how much audio accuracy is lost even in the most high-end Bluetooth® earphones?The chart above displays the near identical sound signature CH-1 by Nowall produces with Bluetooth® connection, sounding indistinguishable from wired earphones.
The close match means that no matter what music you love, CH-1 accurately reproduces the full range of sound produced by the device you are listening to. In fact, CH-1 has only 2% signal loss over Bluetooth®, while most price-comparable earphones can lose up to 5-15%.
They Just Sound Better
So beyond charts and data, what really matters is how a pair of earphones sound. Is the CH-1 really all that different from other, cheaper earphones? Why should a casual listener care about accuracy enough to spend more than $20 on a pair of earphones? While your favorite song is still enjoyable regardless of the equipment it’s coming from, when you hear it with the accuracy that CH-1 delivers, it’s really like hearing it for the first time. You might even be shocked to find out that there were entire tones, or even instruments, that you did not know had been there all along, like we were when listening to CH-1 in Bluetooth® mode for the first time.
How Did We Make CH-1 Sound So Amazing?
That neat, lightweight pendant that hangs from the earpieces is not just the outlet for your included micro-USB charger and auxiliary cable to transform CH-1 into a wired pair of earphones. That pendant is what allows us to move the battery out of the earpieces so that we have room in there for what makes CH-1 by Nowall so unlike anything else on the market.
There are Not One, but Two Speakers in Each Earpiece
Thats right. You get double the speakers. But these are not just any speakers:
BALANCED ARMATURE: Our high-quality balanced armature speakers are the exact same technology used in hearing aides and in the custom in-ear monitors musicians wear during concerts. We’ve tuned our balanced armature units to preserve even the cleanest of highs, without sounding tinny, while still capturing the resonant vocal range for the mids.
DYNAMIC DRIVER: A better version of a Dynamic 10mm Driver. Similar to what you would find in many earphones, valued for it’s warmth and deep capability, we tightly tune our dynamic speaker to the low end is to give you rich, full, and accurate bass tones. Our dynamic driver has a unique polymer diaphragm to make it durable and improve its depth. You’ll notice that you’ll feel the bass as much as you hear it.
Drop the Beat Without Missing a Beat
When you’ve run out of battery (though the 10 hour battery life means you may never reach this point), just connect your device to CH-1 with the included auxiliary cable. CH-1 is now a traditional, wired set of earphones that don’t need to be charged to deliver high-quality audio. With CH-1, you never have to choose between a great-sounding pair of earphones and a pair of earphones that keeps up with your busy life. You can listen during your morning run right into to your workday and for your train ride home all without missing a beat.
Listen to Nothing But Your Music
When musicians and producers record in a studio, they use quite a bit of equipment and time to make sure that nothing reaches your ears except the sounds they want. Why shouldn't your earphones do the same? CH-1 blocks noise by providing a snug, comfortable fit in your ears that seals out (almost) everything but your music. Included are 5 different sizes of earpiece covers so that you can make sure that CH-1 fits you perfectly.
Break Barriers, Not the Bank
At Nowall, we want nothing more than to deliver the highest-quality and most accurate earphone at the lowest price we can get away with, because there should be nothing standing between you and your music as it was meant to be heard. CH-1 by Nowall will eventually retail for $99, but we are offering a $69 limited-time early bird special, only on Kickstarter.

Risks and challenges
We're hoping to cover part of our manufacturing costs with this Kickstarter campaign. We're ready to go into production and have prototypes that meet our standards, we just need your support to bring the incredible audio quality of CH-1 by Nowall to the US!
Our second biggest hurdle, after financial support, is spreading the word about this incredible product! CH-1 by Nowall is truly one of a kind, you cannot find audio quality like this at this price point, anywhere. Getting our product covered on blogs and social media is our next big step.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
