Wearbuds™ | Wireless Earbuds Charged Right on Your Wrist

$822,869

7,645

Many of our team had been involved with true wireless earbuds in the past, but we were always struck by how impractical they are for real-world use. Despite the name "true wireless", in actual fact they are tethered with an invisible wire to their bulky cases. Even the latest AirPods and Galaxy Buds haven't thought outside the "case" and are still plagued by the same old issues.

Wearbuds™ are designed to change the game. A revolutionary milestone of true wireless stereo that frees you from inconvenient charging, easy-to-lose buds, monstrous charging cases, and other headaches.

We are immensely proud of the final result and have patented our unique design.

And we didn't let the radical design get in the way of the most important aspect of any earphones: the sound. With Bluetooth® 5, a Qualcomm® audio chipset and graphene-augmented drivers, our tiny Wearbuds™ deliver the kind of sound you would expect from much larger wired headphones.  

We have gone the extra mile in all directions to bring true innovation to a stagnant corner of the tech industry. Wearbuds™ is an entirely new kind of product and significantly raises the bar in wearable audio tech. We see ourselves as trendsetters, and we hope you can join us in growing this exciting new trend.

 Why Choose Wearbuds™?

Most true wireless earbuds have very limited battery life and can't be taken too far from their bulky charging case. No matter how compact the buds are, your pocket is always going to be bulging with the case. 

With Wearbuds™, everything you need is right on your wrist, and you can charge your earbuds even while jogging, cycling, or hiking. When you want to listen to music there's no need to dig around in your pocket or backpack, the buds are already at your fingertips.

We have gone the extra mile in all directions to bring true innovation to a stagnant corner of the tech industry. Wearbuds™ is an entirely new kind of product and significantly raises the bar in wearable audio tech. We see ourselves as trendsetters, and we hope you can join us in growing this exciting new trend.

Support us on Kickstarter and join the revolution. 

We will be working with DHL and other reliable couriers to deliver your Wearbuds™ quickly and securely to your door. The courier companies we have chosen provide high standard of service and they all ship globally. Wearbuds™ will be shipped in order of purchase starting September 2019.

Aipower® was founded to create fresh and original consumer electronics that take the industry to new places. Drawn from industry giants such as Samsung, Huawei, and Alcatel, our team of experts has a broad range of experiences and specialisms. Our designs are practical as well as innovative, and we know what it takes to translate them into ultra-reliable products.

Many of our team had been involved with true wireless earbuds in the past, but we were always struck by how impractical they are for real-world use. Despite the name "true wireless", in actual fact they are tethered with an invisible wire to their bulky cases. Even the latest AirPods and Galaxy Buds haven't thought outside the "case" and are still plagued by the same old issues.

Wearbuds™ are designed to change the game. As impressive as a wristband that stores and charges wireless earbuds is, we felt that wasn't enough. Therefore, we made the extra effort to create a band that not only acts as a charger and carry case, but is also a fully-functional fitness tracker.

In order to perfect the popping out motion, we built a total of 68 prototypes and experimented with a number of different solutions. We are immensely proud of the final result and have patented our unique design

And we didn't let the radical design get in the way of the most important aspect of any earphones: the sound. With Bluetooth® 5, a Qualcomm® audio chipset and graphene-augmented drivers, our tiny Wearbuds™ deliver the kind of sound you would expect from much larger wired headphones.

We added a display and a number of sensors to make the fitness band as practical as possible. We spent considerable effort on trying to maximize battery life while keeping the design as compact as possible, and by combining the very latest battery management technology, a power-efficient chipset, we think we have achieved that.

Risks and challenges

We fully expect to deliver Wearbuds™ at exceptional quality according to our timeline. However, in spite of our planning, there are circumstances that may be out of our control. If we are met with these, we promise to speak with full transparency to you.

Most likely to hinder our project is the supply chain. Although we keep a close connection with our suppliers, we are not in control of all suppliers. And some customized components come from a single supplier. Anything goes wrong in our supply chain may postpone the entire procedure.

The Aipower® app (for Android and iOS) will go through rounds of testing and fine-tuning to convey a satisfying user experience. We may have to rework the app depending on the feedback we received from early testers, which require time.

We will strive to make sure that Wearbuds™ well exceed the potential of their hardware.
