About this project

Turn off the lights, turn on your favorite music and turn up the exhilaration with Night Rhythm Headphones. Upon detecting the beat of the music, our brilliant audio-responsive headphone cables radiate with colorful neon light. Enjoy your favorite jams with Night Rhythm’s unparalleled sound quality and transform any space into a personal, vibrant light show. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Turn any room or occasion into a light show when the neon light of your headphones responds to the beat of your favorite music!

Night Rhythm provides an unparalleled music experience, exhibiting sound quality equivalent to the most expensive and recognized headphone brands. Let Night Rhythm elevate your music listening experience by taking a solely audible event and adding a captivating visual aspect.

Truly focus on the music thanks to Night Rhythm’s ergonomic earpiece design. Now you can dance, exercise and move freely without fear of missing a beat. With your earphones snugly in place, you can jam out, exercise or silent disco to your heart’s content!

Get ready for Night Rhythm Headphones to scintillate your world for a solid three hours. Heading to a festival? Enjoy three full concerts worth of vibrant light and jaw-dropping sound without a care in the world (or fear of a dead battery). Night Rhythm’s rechargeable USB battery will keep you dancing until the sun comes up.

Increase your visibility while jogging, dancing or exercising at night with the constant pulse of the Night Rhythm neon light. Want to really fuel your workout? Switch gears with Night Rhythm’s "steady" mode- stand out as you cross the finish line and stay safe as you exceed your fitness goals.

Make your listening experience personal. Our state-of-the-art headphones will eventually be available in six different electrifying colors; initially, Night Rhythm Headphones will be available in Kickstarter Green, and we’ll be releasing red, purple, white, blue, orange and green as stretch goals throughout the campaign. Have the time of your life as your favorite color pulses along to the beat of your favorite songs.

Whether you have an Apple, Nokia, Samsung, LG, iPhone 7 (when used with the Apple adapter) or any 3.5 mm stereo jack-equipped device, you can keep your hands in the air and off your cell with Night Rhythm’s hands-free microphone. Call up your friend who had to miss the show and help them feel like they are there!

 

Electroluminescent wire is a thin copper wire coated in phosphor, which glows when an alternating current is applied to it. It produces a 360-degree unbroken line of visible light, requiring only a small amount of power. Its thin diameter makes it flexible and ideal for use in a variety of applications, such as clothing and costumes, and in this case headphones.

 

 

 

 

 

 

     
 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We are no stranger to creating really cool, innovative headphones. In 2014, we designed eco-friendly headphones for Louis Vuitton made of bamboo and bioplastics. Since then, we have manufactured over 50,000 pairs for LV.

Night Rhythm Headphones were conceived mid 2015 and we have spent well over a year refining the design to flawlessness. There are always challenges to surmount when developing new technology products. Night Rhythm Headphones have several key components that we have worked diligently to perfect during the product development phase. This is what we have accomplished:

1) Incredibly high quality sound is very important to us. We spent months sourcing the best possible audio components and designing earpieces that deliver concert-quality sound. Our Night Rhythm prototypes consistently outperformed top brands in side-by-side testing of audio performance.

2) Each pair of Night Rhythm Headphones contains an integrated circuit board that "listens" to the signal transmitted in the wire, then flashes the lights to the beat of the music. In the beginning, our integrated circuits produced audio feedback that could be heard in the earbuds. We have since redesigned the circuit board and eliminated this problem

3) In order to get the cables to work as a solid, even light source, we tested several different kinds of wire including LED and electroluminescent (EL) wire. We have used the highest quality EL wire for the highest efficiency, the brightest light, and the longest lasting durability

4) Because we wanted people to be able to wear Night Rhythm Headphones during rigorous exercise or when dancing, we have developed a special earhook that is stylish yet highly functional. In order to finalize the assembly of the earhooks, we needed to custom build a machine that will press and form the steel at high pressure.

We have worked long and hard to make sure that Night Rhythm Headphones perform to the highest audio standards, produce bright, consistent light, and are very durable.
