Introducing the Accessport Air

Bluetooth 5, aptX / aptX low latency / AAC enabled wireless adapter with amazing sound that brings back the headphone jack to your mobile phones. Wirelessly.

Accessport Air connects to your mobile device wirelessly via Bluetooth connection, and provides music output to your wired headphones and earphones.  You don’t need a dongle, dangling from your phone anymore.

Accessport Air is light-weight and compact and features a convenient clip-on design that allows it to hook onto your shirt or jeans.  Its controls are easy and intuitive, with a future-proof USB-C charging port that allows you to continue listening while charging.

Accessport Air is designed and developed from the ground up to be the best bang-for-the-buck Bluetooth receiver.  Each components and specifications has been hand-picked for it to be the most cutting-edge, the most battery efficient and the best sound output per dollar.  Its development took more than 2 years, with the entire Bluetooth solutions revised several times as the new Bluetooth 5 technology became available.

We haven’t forgotten about you.  Since the last Kickstarter campaign of original Accessport, we’ve been hard at work developing Accessport C.  We’ve had to scrap a few iterations of development due to early compatibility issues, and were finally able to put together package with wide compatibility and incredible 24-bit / 96kHz audio quality from built-in DAC amplifier.

We have completed the development of Accessport C and are pleased to offer an option for pledge at a special discount for those of you that would prefer to use wired connection instead of wireless.

Accessport Air / C / Lite has already gone through prototype stage of development and is in its final stage of development.  The fund from Kickstarter will allow us to open required tooling and secure raw material in order kick off the production.

It was for the love of music.  It was the respect for all musicians of the past, present and future. It was for the struggling instrumental buried under the heavy bass line. It was for the audiophiles craving that crystal clear and mind-blowing detail.

We began as a small Kickstarter campaign in 2015 and naturally grew into a bigger body that thrives on the enthusiasm and passion for music. We design, develop and produce ground-breaking audio products that span widely from earphones, headphones, DAC / amp to musical instruments. We are focusing on staying forefront with the latest proprietary audio technology, while continuing to explore creative ways to allow everyone to experience the audiophile-grade sound.

We have an open mind and open doors for new ways to collaborate with musicians, audio engineers, manufacturers and brands - as we strive to mature into a platform where the advanced sound converge.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for a hardware crowdfunding campaign is managing overhead cost and manufacturing timeline. We have been in mass production of previous 2 Kickstarted products (M4 and Accessport), as well as several other products outside of crowdfunding campaign.

We have the right resources and team in place to bring this project into final mass production once enough fund is collected to open tooling and and gather raw material.

We have invested heavily into development, prototyping and preparing for the Kickstarter campaign. This means our biggest risk is not meeting funding goal for this project, which will mean a big financial loss as well as the timing into the market.
