About

Introducing Blaudio Case: Bringing back the Jack

At Blaudio, we believe in a future where artistic expression and innovation gives us the ability to lead ideas into reality. One of our biggest challenges we faced, was creating a light-weight, slim & stylish protective case, all while integrating back the headphone jack with full iOS compatibility. 

Our unique, one piece patent-pending design, allows for all iPhone users to not only protect our investment from everyday use, but also gives us the freedom of plugging back in again. So the next time you head out, just grab your favorite headphones and plug in. With Blaudio - We're Listening

Blaudio features a Slim One-Piece Case Design, which allows for its users to seamlessly fit and protect their iPhones. No more worrying about those traditional two-piece lightning cases, which ultimately wind up breaking and fail after an accidental drop.

Blaudio has developed a patent-pending iOS hardware, to deliver vibrant sound without the compromise of an using a lifeless dongle. Blaudio partnered with Qualcomm on this project, by utilizing its latest CSR chipset to seamlessly integrate and pair with our DAC logic board. By combining the use of HD High-Resolution Audio through our battery powered DAC chipset, Blaudio is able to deliver the best of both worlds in replicating the perfect audio frequency from your lightning port to your iPhone.

Proof of Concept

Blaudio's lead engineer finalizes testing on our latest revised hardware below. The initial test requires pairing our chipset only one time with the iPhone, to insure our powered DAC logic board is connected with the lightning port.

Why Kickstarter? 

As being an investor in several Kickstarter campaigns, we understand how it feels when a project is delayed or even worse, fails to deliver. This is why Blaudio invested so heavily in our R&D and engineering efforts, which took us over 2 years and numerous hardware changes to deliver a completed product. We have done a lot of tests and prototyping and now we are ready to deliver. Please help support our journey in bringing our vision to life!

At Blaudio, a simple idea 2 years ago has expanded our reach in bringing together the best in talent and expertise our team has to offer. 

Our overall mission is far beyond the simplistic natural of providing a product that delivers a solution to a problem.  Our main goal is to bring social awareness through our innovative technology and "listen" to what others have to say. By listening, we can achieve greatness through our community, by solving problems, giving back, and inspiring others to share their story to promote like-minded success. Our company's motto "we're listening" dives a lot deeper than one would think.

As a passionate and successful entrepreneur, our founder Daniel Toth, has been working in the IT and tech hardware space for over the past decade. The Blaudio team brings on a mix of entrepreneurial engineers, designers, and audiologists from all over the world. As a team, we cover the most important competences with a lot of experience and know-how, by delivering a product one can value. Our team has pronounced skills in: development, PCB Assembly, engineering, audiology, tooling, design, third-party fulfillment, and marketing.

Risks and challenges

Producing a hardware product is never easy.

Our previous experience in manufacturing PCBA hardware components makes us better prepared for the unforeseen challenges we may encounter during the tooling, manufacturing, testing, and certification processes. In addition, we have previously manufactured test hardware and cases with this same supplier. This means we already have pre-established relationships to ensure consistent quality and testing processes.

Despite the familiarity with our supply partners, there is still risk in successfully tooling, assembling, and producing these products on time. In addition, to the challenges that present themselves with manufacturing, Blaudio has also applied for the certifications for the battery, electronics performance, and MFI-factory compliance.

Our target shipping dates are by the end of February into March, depending on the level you back and the total amount of cases pledged. We would love to ship earlier and we will do everything we can to make this happen. Keep in mind, at Blaudio, we will never trade quality for schedule, as we are committed to making sure the product is fully tested and approved before shipping through our six point QA process.
