About this project

 

 

 

 

 

CONDUIT Sports are the first headphones in the world to seamlessly combine In-Ear and Off-Ear™ technologies, allowing users to either block out the world and hear only the music, or to hear everything around them and the music at the same time. Now you can experience stellar sound wherever you are, no matter what you’re doing.

Traditional headphones and earbuds limit what activities you can safely engage in while listening to music, while existing bone conduction solutions are only useful for times when you want to hear everything - but who wants to hear blaring gym music or people talking on a bus? The answer to these problems is CONDUIT Sports

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

CONDUIT Sports uses Off-Ear™ bone conduction technology to send sound waves through the bones to your inner ears. During this mode of listening, the ear canal is left entirely free, so you can hear the music and everything around you at the same time. And with frequency ranges of 20Hz to 20kHz and expert equalization from Australia’s best audio engineers, you’ll be sure to love every minute of your listening experience.

 

CONDUIT Sports are built with on-board world class earphones, equalized and fine-tuned by Australian audio experts and powered by 7.8mm dynamic drivers. Run on a closed operating principal and with a frequency range of 10Hz to 20kHz, you’ll enjoy sheer audio bliss!

 

We’ve got In-Ear listening for the times you need it, and with inbuilt magnetic proximity sensors, all you have to do is unplug the earphones and the sound will automatically transfer from the Off-Ear™ to the In-ear speakers! Sound transfers back as soon as the earphones are anchored again. It can also be controlled by the multi-function button.

 

We’ve got In-Ear listening for the times you need it, and with inbuilt magnetic proximity sensors, all you have to do is unplug the earphones and the sound will automatically transfer from the Off-Ear™ to the In-ear speakers! Sound transfers back as soon as the earphones are anchored again. It can also be controlled by the multi-function button.

CONDUIT Sports are designed so that the earphone cables are not only unobtrusive, but extremely stable, their anchors being centred on the back of your head. Unlike many regular sports earphones, the ear tips won’t pop out as you jog, sprint, cartwheel or hit the basketball court. Welcome to the most secure earphones in the world!

CONDUIT Sports can be worn around the back of the head, or over the neck. When worn around the head, you can listen to either our Off-Ear™ or In-Ear speakers, while when worn around the neck, you can discreetly hide the device under a hoodie or collar and listen to our Bassteck™ earphones.

 

Traditional headphones and earbuds limit what activities you can safely engage in while listening to music, while existing bone conduction solutions are only useful for times when you want to hear everything - but who wants to hear blaring gym music or people talking on a bus? CONDUIT Sports are wireless, handsfree enabled and compatible with all your favourite iPhone and Android phones.

Bluetooth 4.2 technology means they’ll provide a reliable 10m wireless range at all times, and dual on-board noise cancelling microphones make them great for taking and making handsfree calls.

 

CONDUIT Sports has on-board multifunction and volume controls, so you don’t have to reach for your phone while exercising. The multifunction button allows you to pause and move between songs, answer and end calls, alternate between In-Ear and Off-Ear™ modes, and activate Android or Apple voice controls, while the volume buttons are directly linked to your phone.

 

 

Six hours of full-volume active battery life, days of standby and two hours to complete charge mean CONDUIT Sports will always be ready. And if you forget to charge them, the Conduit Assist™ voice program will let you know when you’re running low, just to be sure. Charged through a micro USB cable, they use the most common charging cable in the world.

 

 

CONDUIT Sports comes with a pre-packaged multiband equalizer app, giving you absolute control over how you hear your music in either the Off-Ear™ or In-Ear modes.

CONDUIT Sports are also equipped with our CONDUIT Assist™ help program, which talks you through Bluetooth pairing, eliminating fiddly connection issues. CONDUIT Assist™ also provides voice reminders when the device is running low on battery, so you can be sure your CONDUIT Sports are always ready to go.

Not only are Elite and Olympic athletes like Micheal Clark, Willie Banks, and Steve Mesler a fan of CONDUIT Sports, these guys are too!

 

 

 

 

 

The CONDUIT team has worked endlessly to revolutionize the way you listen to music. The development of CONDUIT Sports has been a process and we've documented the making of the prototype. Check out the videos below to see CONDUIT Sports in the making!

Risks and challenges

CONDUIT Sports are nearly complete. We have fully functioning prototypes, and our award-winning design team (responsible for both Red Dot and Good Design awards) has been working together with our manufacturing partner for over six months. As soon as the campaign is successfully funded, we will begin tuning up our final electronics kit and tooling for manufacture, improving the design in every way possible up to the final tooling and delivery. Our continual but efficient design and testing process will ensure you get a world class product, while still meeting the estimated delivery times.

With the final tooling, we will conduct final product certifications so we can ship to various countries and make sure the product gets to backers on time. We already have access to some of the world’s best components suppliers, and an expert term of hardware and supply chain specialists to ensure you get the product you want and timelines are met.
However, should there be component shortages or delays in tooling, we will make sure to keep you informed with timely and accurate information while we work diligently to solve the problems.

We want to bring you a world class product, one which we have already designed and built with some of the industry’s best, so we are offering a 1 year warranty for all of our backers. We believe in our product, vision, and quality control and greatly appreciate the trust you have placed in us to help CONDUIT Sports come to life.
