LIVV Headphones are the first premium over-ear, wireless, active headphones that give you freedom you deserve so you can #LIVVFREE.

 Founder and former NFL Player Mark Clayton set out to revolutionize the way we use athletic headphones. Plagued by never being able to find a pair that would survive his rigorous NFL workouts he realized a need for a true durable, athletic headphone for athletes and active people alike.

We are excited to be featured on BackerClub.co this week! They are the top community for people who are very serious about crowdfunding sites and we are really looking forward to the feedback and support from their community of super-backers!

LIVV Headphones are an experience for anyone living an active lifestyle. For the extreme sports enthusiasts who live for that moment of freedom: catching big air, sprints on the gridiron, hoops on the hardwood, and free runners. LIVV Headphones are also for anyone who is active and on the go.

LIVV Headphones SureFit Band is the first of its kind, breaking the mold of the traditional band that goes over the top of the head. The sleek and sexy, minimalistic band is made in a way that gives the headphones the ability to really fit snug to the head and at the same time not apply a painful amount of tension to the head. 

Designed with convenience in mind LIVV Headphones come equipped with on-board controls that allow you to manage it all straight from the headphones. You can pair your cellphone using Bluetooth 4.0 and with the built-in mic, take calls without missing a beat. Enjoy up 4,000 songs with the 8GB MP3 on-board storage.

Go as hard as you want, for as long as you want! LIVV Headphones have a 10 - 12 hour rechargeable battery. That's more than enough juice to power you through. If that wasn't enough, they also come with removable memory foam pads. For ultra comfortable, prolonged wear.

We have a passion for music, as we're sure most of you do as well. That's why we teamed up with Dale Lott CEO of Aurisonics to develop a headphone that delivers that premium sound you crave! Get inspired by the music that moves you, without compromising on style and quality.

LIVV Headphones combine an MP3 Player, just the right amount of tension, and amazing sound quality to give you the freedom to truly #LIVVFree. Move as fast as you want, in any direction you feel. Stream music from your device free from wires. You can even leave your device behind so it doesn't weigh you down!

Our SureFit Band is the first of its kind. This lightweight band applies the perfect amount of tension providing unrivaled functionality allowing you to live an active lifestyle in comfort.

LIVV has combined an 8GB MP3 Player (up to 4000 songs) and Bluetooth 4.0 functionality to finally free you from wires, making the use of your cellphone during activity truly an option.

We have worked with our manufacturer to deliver a premium active headphone that is Waterproof, Sweat-proof and Dust-proof. Now worry less about sweat or water and focus on maximizing your workout.

IP67 Waterproofing: Protected against dust; complete protection against contact. Waterproof in up to 1 meter for limited periods of time.

Stand out from the pack with coordinating color styles. Initially, LIVV headphones will only come in black and white but we want to be able to make a variety of colors. Different color LIVV Headphones with interchangeable ear pads allow you to express your true self. This feature requires additional development effort and hitting this stretch goal will allow us to give you some vibrant color options.

Back in 2011, after always running into issues during intense training sessions Mark realized he wasn't the only one who experienced these frustrations. After feeling inspired, Mark started sketching his idea for LIVV Headphones.

Mark's Original Sketch

Out of a need we've identified a solution. Trying to find a way to eliminate this common problem LIVV Headphones was born. 

LIVV Headphones are engineered by Aurisonics, Inc. a Nashville, TN (Music City) based professional audio product company. Aurisonics was founded in 2011 by veteran master audio engineer and audio products designer Dale Lott, with the goal of making products that truly allow customers to "hear it" and "live it."

When you pledge for a set of LIVV headphones, rest assured that LIVV has been engineered not only to stay on your head comfortably, but to also sound insanely good.

In early 2012, a recently retired NFL standout, Mark Clayton began LIVV. Mark is now a budding entrepreneur and creator, who has successfully used his on-the-field ability to create the cutting-edge technology that gave birth to LIVV headphones. The name was inspired by the ability to “Live Free--free from wires, free from restrictions, free from limits.” He added the extra V as emphasis and a creative spin on the word that is as unique as the design.

Dale, founder and CEO of Aurisonics, brings over twenty years of audio mastering, forensic audio analysis and product design to LIVV. His extensive knowledge of product design and manufacturing, software, video and audio production along with live sound production is vastly beneficial to the organization and quality of the product. Dale started Aurisonics in 2011 to build high-end custom in-ear hearing protection and monitoring systems for musicians. His passion for audio fidelity, design ingenuity and his ability to engineer flawless aesthetics has assisted in shaping what we know today as LIVV Headphones.

Risks and challenges

There are always significant challenges in manufacturing and delivering any hardware product at scale. Fortunately, we've have been working hard and have established relationships with manufacturing partners in the US and China that will help us put LIVV headphones in your hands.

Additionally, there are still risks associated with producing the LIVV headphones. Unexpected changes in component lead times, availability, and cost are examples of factors outside our direct control that could affect our delivery timeline, but we are working hard to mitigate those risks and plan to be transparent throughout the delivery process.

The other risk with this and any other project that involves physical delivery comes with shipping. There are a number of unforeseen circumstances that can cause problems during the actual physical shipping of the LIVV Headphones. We plan to work with proven companies to help ensure that your product arrives timely to their delivery destination.

The final look and features of the LIVV headphones are subject to change based on factors outside of our control such as component availability.
