Thank you so much for your overwhelming support; it was an incredible journey.

If you missed the Kickstarter, do not worry, we got your back.

Be one of the first to plug in pure wireless Hi-Fi audio with the BTunes into your favorite headphones.

Wireless music, Hands free phone calls on your headphones
Wireless music, Hands free phone calls on your headphones

You love your headphones, and you love your freedom---free from being tangled with wires. You could go and shell out hard earned money to purchase another pair of wireless headphones, but why? You own your favorite headphones already, you love their sound, make them wireless is the simplest and most economical solution. That's what our friends and family members challenged us to do: an elegant adaptor for headphones.

The BTunes, patent pending, is designed from ground up to transform your wired headphones into bluetooth headphones. It's small, beautiful, stylish and extremely functional. It employs the most advanced blueooth technology to stream the best stereo pure wireless sound from your mobile devices to your headphones. Relax, enjoy and move freely.

Will the BTunes work for your headphones? Chances are it will. Most of the premium headphones on the market are detachable headphones. That means you can unplug the wire, and plug in the BTunes. 

The BTunes supports most detachable headphones, which include but not limited to the following brands and models.

Updated List of Supported Headphones

Simple Operation. NFC pairing too

Plug, Pair and Play.  We use NFC technology to make pairing even easier and faster. Put your NFC enabled smartphones on the BTunes, you will see a dialog on your smartphone, just tap yes to pair.

The demo above is also the BTunes checker.  If you can unplug the cable like that, it's more than likely the BTunes will work on your headphones. Get in touch with us if your headphones are not listed.

Although we started off with some simple sketches with various form factors, we got our final design from watching pandas chewing on bamboo shoots. Actually, more from bamboo shoots than from pandas. It’s a two layered design with a small cut out on top.

Pure Wireless HiFi Sound from mobile devices

The audio codecs determine the quality of wireless audio streams. The BTunes builds in two high quality stereo audio codecs, aptX and AAC, over Bluetooth. aptX is designed to deliver CD-quality (16-bit / 44.1kHz) audio stream without loss of sound quality. Most if not all popular android devices support aptX. AAC (advanced audio codec) is most popular on Apple’s iPhones, iPads and Mac. Bluetooth will take the best codec to stream music to your headphones, which means you receive the best wireless sound to your headphones no matter what mobile device you use. Android or iOS; Samsung, Google, HTC, LG or Apple; smartphones or tablets? All your bases are covered. That’s how the BTunes plug in pure wireless hifi sound.

Multipoint connection and hands free phone calls

We pack a big battery in the small BTunes to give you up to 10 hours music or talk time. You can connect two devices with the BTunes, for example, watching video on your tablet while staying connected to your smartphone. When a call comes, the BTunes switches from the tablet to your phone seamlessly. After you finish your phone conversation, it switches back to the tablet. Isn’t that convenient? Plug the BTunes in your car’s aux port, you can make hands free phone calls. Just tell Siri or Google Now, chat away with friends and family. The clear voice capture technology from CSR will give you crystal clear phone conversation with noise, echo and wind suppressions.

The funding will assist with the cost of tooling, manufacturing and distribution. Specifically, it will go to the following: raw materials/MOQ, product and tooling, quality ssurance, safety packaging, shipping, fixed overhead, taxes and Kickstarter fees, FCC/CE certifications and licenses. 

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us to bring the BTunes on to your favorite headphones by claiming your reward, and by sharing it with your family and friends. We sincerely thank you.

Risks and challenges

We are a veteran team to bring a product from inception to the hands of our customers. We know what it takes to design, spec, test and then iterate the process to deliver the best possible product on time. It is hard work, dedication, planning, attention to details, and great working relationship with all our manufacturing partners.

You invest in us as our backers, we will do everything possible for you to minimize the inherent risks in tooling, supply chain, quality assurance, packaging, manufacturing capacity and shipping. We have frozen the final design. The working samples work great, and they sure look fantastic too. Our manufacturing partner is standing by and ready, it has over 15 years of experiences in high volume manufacturing bluetooth devices. We and our manufacturing partner have worked together really well for the last 18 months.

We also have a quality assurance team based in the same area as our manufacturing partner to use the best practices to ensure that highest standards of quality are followed throughout the tooling, development, testing, supply chain and manufacturing process.

We will keep all lines of communication open with our backers, to give you frequent updates on the progress we make. We will sure update more with photos or videos. Thank you for your support.
