As we tried out dozens of headphones for athletes, we realized no solution existed that kept earbuds in your ears. After four years of research and incremental improvements in our waterproof headphones, we made a breakthrough! We are excited to introduce two new headphones that are 100% waterproof and feature our patent pending design for keeping those buds in while you work out.

HydroActive and Flex differ in cord management and best uses:

Flex advance waterproof headphones with truly excellent sound quality, rugged construction, and a comfortable fit. Flex also stay in during flip-turns, white water and waves. The innovative memory wire enables you to form the headphones around your ear for a perfect fit.

HydroActive waterproof headphones combine an extremely waterproof technique with the simplicity of a wraparound band. 

Both headphones feature a comprehensive one year warranty.

Both headphones include interchangeable earbud tips for any situation.

Risks and challenges

DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING

During pre-production, we rigorously tested our prototypes in order to create an optimal final product. While we have finished the design work on HydroActive headphones, Flex Waterproof Headphones face an additional round of testing and changes to meet manufacturing requirements. In addition to keeping our supporters up to date, we promise to make sure any changes during manufacturing uphold our original design intentions and meet the greater interests of our supporters.

MASS PRODUCTION

Manufacturing a product is complex and involves many people, parts and tools all dependent on each other to keep things running smoothly. If one thing doesn't go as planned, it can lead to any number of disruptions along the production line and result in delays. If anything does come up along the way, we promise to handle it like the pros we are and will keep our supporters informed of any changes.

WE KNOW WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
We are building on previous successes and have the expertise to bring this headphone to market. We have built up a strong network of experts in sound engineering, tooling, manufacturing, and distribution. We have prepared for any challenges that may pop up along the way. However, we realize creating an amazing product is a highly complicated process. We promise our complete devotion to bringing both HydroActive and Flex Waterproof Headphones into production and into our backers' lives!
