Our innovative clothing is designed to carry your music and keep your headphone cord out of the way while enjoying an active lifestyle.
So, what's the story?
Do you enjoy listening to music with headphones while you enjoy an active lifestyle? If you answer yes to that question then you surely are tired of dealing with the wire. Ever seen a $500 smartphone go flying across a room or hit the pavement because you snagged the cord with your hand? YIKES! Are you tired of coming up with new ways of "routing" your cords through your shirts or tucking them into your sports bras? Do you feel gross with a sweaty cord up against your skin? You don't need "built-in" cords connected to crappy earbuds that will eventually fail ... then what do you do with the garment? Cut off the earbuds and keep the cord inside?! C'mon, why would you do that?! So we set out to find a solution ... and Wired Performance Wear was born.
Over the last 2 years we have worked on developing, designing and testing our Wired Tech Tee. This is no ordinary tee! This is a shirt that allows you to use your own headphones or earbuds, keeps them secured in place out of the way of your arms and hands and also stores your smartphone or MP3 player.
OK, tell me more!
Lets look at the key features of the Wired Tech Tee:
We use materials that incorporate moisture management properties to help keep you dry and smelling good! We have access to many types, textures and colors of fabrics so you'll always be comfortable and looking great!
Right under the collar you'll find this fancy little port. This is where the "wiring" begins. It weighs almost nothing and you'll never know its there if you're not "wired". Once you pass your wire through this port it becomes secured in the position you choose. Want it longer or shorter? No problem - just adjust it! The main feature here is that your cord will not bounce and pull the earbuds from your ears. You know what I'm talkin' about!
From the port into the channel! This is where you thread your cord. It keeps the cord tight to your body and out of the way. No more earbuds ripped out of your ears because you snagged the cord with your hand! No more cord tucked into your bra-top! No more sweaty cord stuck to your body underneath your shirt!
Where do I put my music? RIGHT HERE! We've included a pocket at the bottom of the channel so you can store your device and any extra cord you might have.
Does it look good??
See for yourself!
So, can you really mass produce these?
YES WE CAN!! The Wired Tech Tee is the first product in a long line of garments to come. The money has been spent and it is ready for production. It is made right here in the USA in North Carolina! With your help we will use the funds from the sale of the Wired Tech Tee to start production on the next garments in our line and launch our website.
What can I expect to see next?!
I'm glad you asked!! Our goal is to cover every season and situation. As you can see in our concept drawings we have a very clear vision of the evolution of Wired Performance Wear. Short sleeve, long sleeve, tanks, compression, jackets, shorts and pants. Take your music with you in a convenient location, keep the cord out of your way and look cool!! Take a look ...
OK, I'm interested! What products are ready?
SWEET!! I'm happy you're happy!! Here are some images of the items available to you now ...

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Challenges in the apparel industry are not uncommon. Shortages on fabrics and colors occur as well as delays in shipping and production errors. We know this because we have experienced every one of them. Over the last 2 years we have built a network that will allow us to overcome these issues should they occur. The key is communication with the customer. We don't expect any delays but should one occur YOU will be the first to know about it and you will always be involved in the resolution ... ultimately to your satisfaction!
Yes! We are striving to be the first peformance wear company that is focused on the issues that surround listening to music while enjoying an active lifestyle. We have preliminary ideas and sketches for running, cycling, golf shirts, teens and tweens, as well as some of the sketches you see on our page. Once our web site is up we will have a section call Wired "YOU"niversity! This is where our fans and customers will make the decisions on some of the next lines, colors, fabrics and uses!!
Depending on the activity ... it might. The Wired Tech Tee is meant to be an all-around garment and the first offering in our line. It works great at the gym and for light jogging or aerobics classes. We have tops that will be more form-fitting as well as compression tops for men and women that will elimate most movement of your device for more vigorous activity. For the serious runner and athlete we have shorts and pants with a compression pocket in the waistband that will eliminate bounce all together. We want you to have pieces of clothing that work together so you have choices based on the activity you are doing.
No. The port is made of PVC and is 2mm thick. We designed a garment that can be used whether or not you are "wired". We want a line of clothing that you just grab out of your closet because it looks and feels great. You don't need to think about if you're going to be wearing headphones today. It is a sleek and lightweight top that you'll love wearing.
We will begin with XS-XXL in mens and womens.
