Things people are saying about us:

Tech Crunch - "These headphones are more than just looking the part....California Headphones is onto something here…. I found the audio and build quality to exceed the norm at their respective price points."

Piston Heads - "My favourite tracks sound absolutely spot on, vocals and guitars sound excellent and very true to life, while there still is a nice punch in the low end when needed. As I already said, they have a sound signature that happens to be my personal favourite....to my ears the Laredos are absolutely brilliant!"

Cult Of Mac - "....[the]vocal track was beautifully enhanced, and I could hear each individual string plucked on the guitar. There was no distortion at louder volume, just a very precise and enjoyable sound fidelity....And despite the non-rap product descriptor, the bass is round and full."

LapTopMag  - "….Rock, Country and Alternative have been noticeably absent from the marketplace — until now."

Unbox Therapy (video review) - "….high quality materials all the way around, I'm really impressed…."

Progress - Where we are 

Tooling is done at the factory. We enter our first pre-production phase next week and then we start ironing out rough spots. The acoustic tuning just got finished and it is SWEET! The funding will be used to ramp up production and the world wide distribution network. We feel 8/15/2012 is a ship date we can hit.  (world wide distributors visit us on californiaheadphones dot com

FAQ

Q. Do the headphone require batteries?  A.  No they have large drivers that push a lot of air, but any standard iPhone can drive them

Q What's the difference between the two models? A.  Silverado's are over the ear - bigger - and use more premium components. They are also more durable and adjustable. The Laredo's do rock and blow anything away at that $99 price point.

Q. Do I add the shipping fee to the pledge amount. A. Please add the shipping fee to your pledge total. If you did not do so, click the "Back this Project" button again and it should take you to a screen where you can edit your original pledge amount to include the cost of shipping. For Beta programs...Please add $10 for shipping in the US, $15 for Canada, and $40 for elsewhere in the world.
