We developed Fireflies so everyone can have truly wire-free earbuds with high sound quality and superior comfort in a sleek and convenient design. To make things better, the tooling is complete and all we need is to place an initial order! FireFlies will arrive to backers this September.

Set of Earbuds - two tiny earbuds that can play stereo Bluetooth audio for hours
Charging Pod - Place the earbuds into the charging pod to recharge them on the go! The Charging pod can recharge the earbuds up to 3 additional times.
Silicone Tips - Small, Medium, and Large sizes to fit all ears
Locking Wings - FireFlies patent pending design fits securely and comfortably and won't fall out of your ear even under the most extreme conditions. However, for those that like extra security, we include a set of small, medium, and large locking wings that secure the earbuds in the inner curve of your ear.
Micro-USB Cable - for recharging the Charging Pod
FireFlies can be paired to devices capable of playing Bluetooth audio such as phones, computers, TV, and more. FireFlies use a Bluetooth 4.0 chip which means it is also compatible with Bluetooth 3.0.
Our Charging Pod is incredibly small and convenient. It fits comfortably in any pocket and charges your FireFlies on the go! After listening, the earbuds can be placed in the Charging Pod to recharge in your pocket!
FireFlies are designed to fit a wide variety of ears comfortably and securely. Our patent pending design was meticulously refined through over 50 prototypes and contoured to both look great and feel great!
The earbuds will stay securely in your ear no matter what activity you are performing.
To ensure a secure fit during even the most extreme activities, we included 3 different sized locking wings.
Producing a large order of these earbuds is very expensive and we need your help to be able to purchase enough earbuds for a minimum production run. Together we can make these earbuds a reality!
The molds were just completed and final engineering samples are being approved. We plan to go to production as soon as we are funded.

Risks and challenges
We've already finished the tooling so the only thing left is to place our first large order. However, every project carries with it certain risks. The most common risks are potential delays in obtaining raw materials, packaging, and shipping. While we feel like we have reduced these variables as much as possible, they can never be completely eliminated. That being said, our team has lots of experience producing consumer electronics and we are confident we will deliver an outstanding product as we proceed to manufacturing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
