TechFaster - "DELOOP claims to be the evolution of the headphone bag, and by all indications it truly is."
Digital DJ Tips - "With a bag like the Deloop, you can store your headphones and some other stuff, making for a more practical solution compared to the redundancy of carrying your headphone bag in yet another bag, as is often the case. For USB DJs, this might end up being the only item you have to take to your gigs."

The Headphone Dilemma
Admit it. You know you LOVE your headphones. You love how they look, how they feel, and definitely how they sound. Whether you're listening to your favorite tune, popping them on for a study session, or making a fashion statement, headphones have become a big part of our lives.
However there is one big problem. Premium headphones hardly include a premium bag. Limited protection, function, and zero versatility. Because of this, you end up leaving your expensive headphones at home, unwilling to deal with a bunch of bothersome accessories or an extra bag. Or you wrap them around your neck leaving them vulnerable to get damaged or lost, carrying cables awkwardly in your pocket.
It’s amazing to think that there isn’t a bag available that fully accommodates the place premium headphones have in our daily lives. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a bag that carried any of your headphones, while also carrying your mobile devices, digital media, and personal essentials? Well, this bag can be a reality, but only with your support!
Kickstarter, we are proud to present a brand new concept for all premium headphone lovers, the very first of its kind.
DELOOP isn't just any headphone bag, it's a headphone bag of the highest quality, premium in look, feel, and design. We made sure to create a bag that you'll fall in love with, a bag worthy of your precious headphones.
IT'S YOUR HEADPHONES HOME AWAY FROM HOME – Where ever you go, your headphones will now have a specific spot just for it, like it deserves. Perfect on the road, at the gym, school, work… or anywhere!
MORE THAN JUST FOR HEADPHONES - With meaningful compartments and efficient use of space, this all purpose bag will go way beyond just your headphones. Take those headphone accessories out of the box at home and actually bring them with you. Still plenty of room for mobile devices and everyday necessities!
FASHIONABLE DESIGN - Functionality is only the beginning. Stylish design and use of upscale materials makes DELOOP a worthy accessory to a variety of fashions and styles. We know your headphones can be a fashion statement, we make sure that its bag is too.
STAY ACTIVE – With a comfortable shoulder strap, easily adjustable on the fly, DELOOP is the perfect complement for an active lifestyle, keeping your hands free to do more.
JUST THE RIGHT SIZE – With DELOOP’s light compact design, you have a bag that's the perfect fit for you headphones. Less to carry, and no more digging around in an oversized bag.
Make sure to include the Orbit Concepts USB Battery Charger to give your mobile devices a second chance at life when you’re on the go. With how much you’ll be using headphones, this will be an absolute must!
When we set out to create the DELOOP, we deliberately focused heavily on certain key goals. We wanted a bag that was compact, versatile, functional, fashionable, and durable. We planned to use only quality materials. Basically, we wanted a headphone bag that was premium in every sense of the word.
GOOD THINGS TAKE TIME
We spent over a year developing the DELOOP bag, taking a great idea on paper and carefully constructing the finished product you see today. DELOOP wasn't born immediately, we moved through many different generations, each improving on the last, and we didn't stop until we were fully convinced that our original vision was realized.
- Soft Bag Design - Has the right amount of give to adapt to any pair of headphones
- Comfortable - Bag sits easy against the body. Strap includes air-mesh padding, slides to fit people of all sizes.
- A-Frame Shape - Works well with the basic shape of headphones, eliminates unwanted movement in the bag, and stays sleek even with larger headphones.
Road To Success
Orbit Concepts’ humble beginnings started in Orange County, CA by Ton Choi, Wil An and Yen Lim. We're just some fun loving guys who are following our passion as music enthusiasts. We enjoy good music, good food, and long walks on the beach. Not together though, ahem.
So what does Orbit Concepts mean? Well, we started with DJ bags, as we are all heavily involved in the DJ culture. Our first products were designed to be bags we would be proud to use personally, in a field near and dear to our hearts, so we thought it would be appropriate to use a DJ scratch term somewhere in our name. We also felt that no matter where we go from here, we never want to forget where we came from, so OC is an ode to where the idea was born, Orange County CA. And conceptually, Orbit Concepts defines our drive and direction, having "out of this world" ideas revolving around the fundamental ideals we built this company around.
As longtime friends, all working professionally in separate fields, we decided to take a big risk and follow our dreams. We knew as a collective, we each had different things to bring to the table, but we all had a similar outlook and passion. From that, Orbit Concepts was born. And even though our roots our in DJ bags, with this new project we are boldly stepping out and trying our hand for lovers of all music. Wish us luck!
Orbit Concepts plans on forging ahead, creating exciting products for you to enjoy. While we're having fun, we take what we do very seriously, and we hope you participate in this very exciting part of our journey. It is with the utmost gratitude that we thank you for your time and support. Cheers!

Risks and challenges
We’re happy to announce the worst is behind us. Manufacturers are in place, and materials have been sourced. We're using manufacturers that we have a rapport with, having already successfully used them for previous products we've released. It is important to note, we are using the same exact manufacturers that built our samples, eliminating unwanted delays. They've already built us a great sample, and only need an order quantity to continue with production.
Once funded we will be able to procure the necessary raw materials and move into the stage of production. We will also be able to complete our packaging design, which is currently nearing completion. We do not anticipate any delays or setbacks, and are quite confident the project will stick to schedule. Based on our previous history with our manufacturers, we should have a very realistic expectation in regards to a production schedule.
While we will continually examine further opportunities to improve the DELOOP, we believe we now have our finished product in hand. BUT, we do value interaction with the Kickstarter community, so we will listen to YOU, and through meaningful dialogue we'll try to see if we can make any improvements that will benefit you, the user. We, of course, will make any and all changes known to all supporters.
Order fulfillment is not something we are unfamiliar with. We already have systems in place to make sure that once your rewards are ready, you will receive nothing but prompt and professional service. We'll get your rewards to you as soon as we can! As a special note to pledgers outside of the US, please keep in mind that there may be additional customs and duties to pay for at time of delivery. This is completely out of our hands, we do not receive any of this amount as it is independent of postage, so please contact your local customs office for more information.
It would be foolhardy to try to guarantee that everything will pan out exactly as planned, we certainly know that bumps in the road can happen. In the event of any unforeseen complications, we’ll ensure communication is straightforward and prompt, and that we’ll take the proper action necessary for a fair resolution. We understand what it means for you to make a pledge in order to support us, so what we can guarantee is that we will never take that for granted. Your support will not be taken lightly.
While this project is a work in progress, much of the progress has already been made to your benefit. Together we can anticipate a great experience, so if you'd like to pledge, please make sure to click that big green button now! Thanks for your support Kickstarters!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
In each of our previous bags, we always made sure to include a special compartment for headphones. It’s consistently been one of our most popular features. This, along with the emergence of today’s headphone culture, inspired the very project before you today.
For the most part the answer is... YES! We thoroughly tested many different popular models with the DELOOP. Fitting headphones is not an exact science that can be answered by size and specification alone. The DELOOP is a soft bag design, which has a good amount of give and flexibility, allowing for a tremendous range of headphones that can fit. Also we have take into account whether the ear cups are swiveling, which also factors into the fit.
For the most part, the DELOOP fits an OVERWHELMING majority of headphones, there are only a FEW exceptions but shoot us a message if you aren't sure and we'll be happy to do some research. We also recently released an audiophile version of the DELOOP as a stretch goal. If we can hit our stretch goal of $30,000, which we are well on pace to do, then you won't have to worry, the DELOOP AUDIOPHILE will ensure a great fit for even the largest of headphones.
While functionality was important, so was the idea of a compact and portable bag, so it was matter of give and take. The DELOOP was also meant to be fashionable and appealing to the eye as well as functional. So our final design took all of this into consideration, however we're happy to let you know that we didn't sacrifice much, there are only a very small number of exceptions, and those will be taken care of with our audiophile version.
The DELOOP will indeed carry most PORTABLE headphone amps. The DELOOP fits larger mobile devices, portable hard drives, portable chargers, so of course most portable headphone amps also fit, especially if you factor in the larger exterior pocket. Shoot us a message if you aren't sure, and also remember our audiophile version of the DELOOP will fit a wider variety of headphone amps as well.
The only difference between the two versions are the exterior material, waterproof ballistic nylon and matted leather for the Sport, and genuine Nappa leather for the Deluxe (traditional or quilted design). All versions have the same layout, premium interior of rip stop lining and plush fabric, and are exactly the same in size and dimension.
Please check out an update we posted on this subject. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1979931063/deloop-the-evolution-of-the-headphone-bag/posts/883745
In the future, maybe. The short answer right now is that the audiophile for the deluxe version is not available currently. It may be in the future, but it's not something we can currently promise, so at the end of the day we can't offer it.
To go a little bit more into detail, it was a hard decision that we had to make, and it boils down to needing a little more funding, and also not wanting to take a chance at pushing back production and delaying our schedule for our other backers. The sport version makes an easier transition to the audiophile version, but with the current number of backers it's going to be very difficult to make the deluxe version. This is the honest truth, but we are still working on the audiophile version in the future. We are releasing updates even after post funding, so you guys will definitely be the first to know. Please be on the lookout
We're going to send out a survey post campaign, and we'll consider that the time to make your final decision. We'll ask that you respond a week or so after we send it out, as we definitely want to get into production as soon as possible.
We wanted to give kickstarters a head start, all prices are dramatically reduced from our estimated final retail value. Please understand your pledge also factors in shipping cost within the US as well, you're actually paying less than that amount for the product itself! The DELOOP will cost between $7 to $13 to ship, depending on distance from Southern California, so in actuality you are paying much less for the DELOOP itself. Also to note, the additional shipping fees International backers pay for their rewards will cover the cost of shipping internationally only. However, some countries may charge International backers additional fee for duties and customs fees based our their tax rates and laws.
ABSOLUTELY NOT! This bag is useful for all lovers of music. Premium headphone culture is truly emerging, and we are just paying attention to it. And if you don't have headphones... well now is a good a time to get one, now that you know there's an awesome bag to go with it!
Nappa Leather is a luxurious full grain leather, known particularly for being soft, supple, light, and easily worn. It's a popular choice for many high end items, and can even be found in the interior of many luxury cars.
You can fit a variety of USB drives, portable hard drives, and there's specific slots that fit up to 3 SD cards.
Anything that can be charged by a USB Cable. Accepts a Type A USB connector.
Of course! This is the perfect bag for when all you need to bring are headphones, and digital media. It's technically the smallest complete DJ gig bag out there. Extremely useful for CDJ devices that accept USB and SD cards, or when you're just dropping in on a friend who already has a laptop, and you just want to connect to his system.
As our timeline states, we are scheduled to start shipping out rewards in October. Delivery times will vary depending on location. We'll definitely keep you posted!
