Have a question?
@B&B for the color stretch goal I would like to see the all orange b&b you posted in update #5 that would be amazing!!
Not blown away by the color options. Seems just like different colored logos instead of actually different color options for cups, headband or hard parts/shells holding the cups.
On the other hand - not that important for me personally either.
Would still like to hear if the electronic innards are also up for being used for sport or if the sport cups are just gonna induce a feeling of false safety and you risk ruining the earphones if you get damp/sweaty.
@B&B - I have two questions about your approach to personalization:
1) It sounds like it's equalization based on a hearing test - my question is if what you're doing is boosting the amplitude of frequencies that aren't heard as well due to hearing impairment what safeguards are in place to prevent the equalization process from inducing further hearing loss?
2) Are the personalized hearing profiles measured for each ear individually and are is resulting equalization different for each ear (so it wouldn't sound right if you put on the headphones backwards, ie, L/R <> R/L?
Thank you for your input and support. We really appreciate it.
Dear Bakul. Thanks for your input. Our soft case is very durable and high qualitative. We are although working on a hard case and will update you soon. Thank you for your support!
Thank you for your questions. We decided to use a soft-case because you can make it smaller for transportation (hard cases are often very bulky). Our soft case is very durable and high qualitative. We are although working on a hard case and will update you soon :-). Adjustments on the APP can be activated when connected to the headphone by bluetooth.
Thank you for your support!
The Battery is not removable. They have a very good performance and a long lifetime within constant usage. We customized them to perform an optimized result. (@Ferdy: Thank you for your support). If the battery runs out you can listen by cable yes that is correct. The Battery lasts for 20 Hours.
Hi Mischa. Vielen Dank fürs schreiben. Bitte überprüfe kurz Dein Postfach (auch Spam-Ordner). Die Antwort/Deine Bestätigung ging bereits am 12.07 an Dich raus :-)

Hi martin, thank you for your question.
Please check out the Answer to Question 14 in the FAQ area here:
Glad to hear that you like the concept :-). You totally got it. Thanks for your support.
Vielen Dank für Deine Unterstützung! Ja genau die Firmware ist aktualisierbar.
Bei weiteren Fragen sind wir gerne jederzeit für Dich da.
Hi Pat. Vielen Dank für Deinen Input und für Deine Unterstützung. Wir schätzen das sehr.
Thank you for your input. We will look into this.
Thanks for your support!
Hi Matthew. Thank you for your feedback. We will look into this and see how we can handle it. The logo on the headband will also decrease in size. We already have this on our list :-). Thank you for your inputs!
@Robert Walker Goodyear:
Yes we know what you mean. The B&B PURE is a very high quality headphone and for this reason we understand you. We are working hard on making this possible. We will update more about this soon! :-)
Thank you for your help and support :-).
Hi Jerry. Thank you for the input. Please let us know if you have any other questions we can help you with. Thank you very much for your support!
Hi Cheryl thank you for your question. Yes the headphone is foldable. Our high quality drivers are very balanced and have the right amount of bass to give you enough power without having any loss in the higher frequency areas. Heavy bass is possible and thanks to our wide spectrum of frequencies you will feel immersed by the sound giving you a surround feeling.
Thank you very much for your support!
Hi Craig thank you very much for your feedback to our product. Glad to hear you like the B&B Pure headphones :-). We are working on the hard case and will update you soon.
Hi ikathi. Vielen Dank für deine Frage :-).
Jedes Ohrmuschel-Set ist 10 CHF (10 $).
1 Ohrmuschel-Set = 2 Ohrmuscheln (links & rechts)
Vielen Dank für Deine Unterstützung. Wir schätzen das sehr.
i just read the Section "Specifications " again - first i thought "Firmware : upgrade" means it will be updateble - is that right? or dose it mean its an upgrade from the first version of B&B Air?
@Phil: Thank you very much! We will soon update you about the hard case. We are working on it :-).
I was just looking at the campaign page, curiosity kills me, and found out that a Swiss gadget tester has reviewed a prototype of the headphones! Just go on the campaign page and at the start of it you will find it.
@B&B You should let others know.
I'd think that the hard case would be a higher priority than multiple colours. Please consider it as a more necessary stretch goal than any others. After the sweat proof ear ups I would imagine the safety while carrying would be of most importance.
The old version of BB AIR included a hard case, why the higher price new version of BB PURE not included a hard case?
Besides, how can i adjust/control by the app when headphones battery was dead?
Hi creator, a few questions. I’m not a scientist so forgive the ignorance. I could not find an answer in the campaign page or the commentary.
Firstly, I think @Nick’s question is important. Is the sound of each ear customisable by frequency and strength? I mean, what if I am deafer in one ear and need it louder in that ear to balance the hearing? What if my hearing profile is different in one ear from the other?
Can you clarify if the frequency test allows customisation of low, mid and high tones? If not, what is it for and how are the different tones taken in to account when customising the listening profile?
@MAJ. Take time to read everything. 20 hours battery life. And if you use the cable, it does not use the battery. At least thats what I read in the text about the project 😊
Removable battery please? This will increase the lifetime of the headphones i.e. I can simply use the wires headphones then! By the way, how long does the battery last?
@Nick - wow - thats a good point - for me it looks like that it is not independent for every ear - if that is not the case that might be something for a firmware update (since there sayed its updateble) - would make realy sence to me :) +1
Is the hearing profile per ear? Have not seen this answered anywhere
Ich habe vor ein paar Tagen den Betrag um zusätzliche 20.- und euch eine E-Mail geschrieben. Leider habe ich noch keine Antwort erhalten. Seid ihr etwas im Stress oder kann doch mal etwas verloren gehen? Dann würde ich die E-Mail nochmals senden :-)
Keep on going!
hiya im not a expert or anything but i only see this mentioned as for music, what about gaming?
I like the branding on top. And I like the fact that I can choose if I want over the ear or on ear cups. When the weather is warm, much better to have them on the ear 😉 When it starts to hurt, switch. And that I can take an extra pair that are swear resistent 😃 Choices all over 😉
@ju ich denke das die Schweiß resistenten Ohrmuscheln Veganer geeignet sind - das sollte Stoff sein
@B&B Wird es irgendwann die Möglichkeit geben die Fake Leder (Veganer geeignete) Ohrmuscheln zu beziehen?
Hi, eine art Dockingstation an die iPods oder DAB-Empfänger angeschlossen werden können und die die kabellose Übertragung an den Kopfhörer übernimmt fände ich super. Cheers Pat
+1 with Matthew, i would much rather get 2 over ear cups than have 1 on-ear unused.
Hello, two items.
First, regarding the ear cups. If we already know our preference of on, or over ear cups may we please simply request to have our preferred type in the leather and sport? Otherwise my spare on ear cups will go unused.
Second. While I recognize the importance of branding, and brand image, I think we should address the branding on the top of the headband. The large bold print looks very, very tacky and silly. If it remains the way it currently is I will definitely be covering it up. I love the B&B logo on the ear cup, that would look much better on the headband. Or frankly anything else...
Thank you for your consideration
@B&B I like the idea of a hard case for the headphones... kind of like a carry around hard case... Protection is a must...
@Cheryl. Do your read the projects you back? Because it is clear that it is foldable 😊
Hard case would be nice
@B&B - Thanks for showing the durability testing, that helps. Also please register my vote for a hard case. Thanks.
Hi guys, would like to check if this headphone is foldable? Also, would it be possible to achieve surround-like sound and heavy bass?
Hi guys, I have backed quite a few audio pieces in Kickstarter (some more successful than others) but this is the first over ear one and am impressed with the plans. Can you please add me as +1 for the travel case as I am on planes a lot and always have hard cases for my audio gear.
Hi ihr lieben wenn ich gerne ein zusätzliches Paar Ohrpolster hätte um wie viele CF soll ich meinen Beitrag erhöhen
Thanks for the great headphones you are kickstarting!!
How can I order two pairs of headphones?
Also, if I order two, how much will the transport to Germany cost?
Very excited about you’re amazing headphones! I’ve been waiting for a long time to take the plunge with another well known brand! But they have had a mixed review as many say they are a snobbish brand and not about the quality of their products and customer satisfaction. This for me is how you beat other brands, very excited about getting the headphones and experiencing the custom set up and functionality 😊 would like a hard protective case to protect them and sports cups for the gym 👍🏼
Thank you for your questions. Yes we are working on it and are trying to make things possible. We developed the full hearing test together with Amplifon. Both advisory and intellectual property. Together with their know how and capabilities we were able to develop the algorithms needed to adjust frequencies to your personal hearing curve.
Yes that is correct.
@Pamela P, @Ferdy:
Thank you for your question and interest in our Ear Cups.
1 Set of Ear Cups = 2 Ear Cups (Left/right). Each set is 10$ or 10CHF.
