Xpuff is designed for wind reduction, improving the quality of phone conversations outdoors drastically.
                    

Tactility response remains the same


Xpuff is designed with the user in mind, so a lot of research has gone into retaining tactility and optimizing simplicity.
      
                          

Easy to assemble

Xpuff is very easy to assemble as it is only made up of three parts – a hard two-piece cover made of recyclable plastic and an inner soft foam.

Lukas and Jochen are active entrepreneurs who value work and leisure time. It was on a rather windy day in Stockholm that they came up with the idea of xpuff, after a number of failed calls and desperate can you hear me's.

Ela and João added their personal touch to the project by researching, copywriting, editing, video making and playing fetch with Roxy and Choco.

    

 

 

 

 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

You will never have to think twice about accepting that call when you are outside and it’s blowing.

Lastly, we must note that xpuff is more than a convenience product. We aim to change the quality of calls from today forward and make a much-needed impact on phone communication in the 21st century.

To walk, jog, ride a bicycle or sail in the open air without the constant scratches of wind sounded like a dream to us once. We are now pursuing this dream.

Risks and challenges

Thank you for your interest in our project. After months spent working on the xpuff, this simple wind-cancelling device has become a dream-like passion for every member of our team. The time, thoughts and friendships dedicated to xpuff will remain with us even if our project fails to reach its goal. At this point, we believe that we have done our best to make xpuff a unique, simple and functional product. Thanks to its effortless assembly and design tested on our family, friends and supporters, we have attempted to eliminate risks regarding its setup. We might not be able to keep your headphones from tangling; but we sure can try to keep your phone conversations wind-free and spread our passion.

We trust that we will be able to deliver your xpuff on time thanks to our great team, seamless manufacturing and a well-organized production line. However, most important is our shared belief in the xpuff, a product that connected all four of us on many different levels in our beloved windy Stockholm.
