VIE FIT - The Softest, Custom-fit, True Wireless Earphones

Ordinary true wireless earphones are often too big to fit comfortably into your ear. Not only are they bulky looking, sticking out from your ear, they irritate some parts of the ear after long periods of use. Poorly fitting earphones leak sound and result in poor audio quality. They even just fall off when you are exercising.

VIE FIT is the world’s softest, custom-fitting, true wireless earphone, not only the ear tip but the whole housing touching your skin is made from ultra-flexible, low resistance, antibacterial, durable silicone so it seamlessly conforms to your ears' shape.

Vie Fit’s 360 rotating speaker system is omnidirectional and moves naturally to fit the angle of your ear delivering optimal sound directly to your eardrum. When combined with the gapless fit, you can enjoy the superior sound quality of the 8mm neodymium dynamic speaker.

VIE FIT uses the Qualcomm's latest module which comes with Bluetooth ver 5.0 with the latest audio profile. This module solves many problems existed in the past of audio drop out, caused by the right side & left side connectivity or Bluetooth and WiFi co-existence.

It's the true wireless earphone perfected.

VIE FIT is the world’s softest, custom-fitting, true wireless earphone. Not only the ear tip, but the whole housing touching your skin is made from ultra-flexible, low resistance, antibacterial, durable silicone so it can seamlessly conform to your ears' shape.

Everyone's ears are different. Ordinary true wireless earphones are often too big to fit comfortably into your ear, hurting some parts of your ear after long periods of use. Poorly fitting earphones just fall off when you are exercising.

The VIE FIT's "Soft Shell” structure changes shape according to your ear and custom-fits softly and securely, so you can wear the earphones for long periods of time without stress or pain.

 

 

 

 

Most earphones have a one size fits all assumption. We don’t expect you to fit to our product. We want our product to fit to you. That's why we replaced the traditional fixed angle speaker assembly with a flexible one.

Vie Fit’s articulating speaker is omnidirectional and moves naturally to fit the angle of your ear delivering optimal sound directly to your eardrum. The gapless fit allows you to experience the full power of Vie Fit’s high quality 8mm neodymium dynamic speakers while efficiently eliminating outside noise.

 VIE FIT uses powerful 8mm dynamic speakers that produce excellent sound with a frequency response tuned for powerful, deep lows, clear instrumentals, and crisp vocals. Enjoy how they truly sound like with the gapless fit.

 VIE FIT supports Qualcomm® aptX™ Low Latency. The audio codec ensures your Bluetooth® wireless-enabled device can deliver sound in sync with visual media. It reduces delay and improves the end-to-end speed of the audio transmission, resulting in a high quality, synchronized user experience. With aptX Low Latency you can enjoy the freedom of wireless for applications such as gaming and watching videos.

 

Hearing loss is one of the most common illnesses around the world. The damage depends on how long you are exposed to high volume sounds. VIE FIT’s no gap fit provides the highly efficient noise reduction. Therefore, you can keep the volume level down while you are enjoying your music which limits the risk of hearing loss.

Vie Fit is highly water resistant, rated at IPX5, so you can sweat or even dance in the rain.

Some earphone users can experience ear infections after long-term or heavy usage. Vie Fit is made from FDA and EPA approved antibacterial silicone to protect your earphones from any harmful bacteria after longer periods of use.

 

 

 

Many true wireless earphones have connectivity problems. VIE FIT uses Qualcomm's latest module which comes with Bluetooth ver 5.0 and the latest audio profile. This module solves many problems that existed in the past with audio drop out, caused by the right side & left side connectivity or Bluetooth and WiFi co-existence.VIE FIT is going to be one of the first to deploy this superior module in the market for you to enjoy the best connectivity.

The other common reason of connectivity problem is poor antenna deployment. When the antenna is buried in the housing and deep inside the ear, the signal gets disrupted. Vie Fit avoids this common problem by optimally placing the antenna on the outer edge of the housing where it can receive the best signal.

The 200-degree ellipse design antenna allows for a greater signal reception while keeping you smart looking without sticking out of your ear.

 

VIE FIT comes with 4.5 hours of continuous listening time and 33 hours of playback with the included charging case. 


Whether you’re at home or out and about, background noise can make having a clear conversation difficult. Qualcomm's® cVc™ ambient noise cancellation technology provides the highest quality advanced audio enhancements and noise suppression. You get uncompromised call quality with your Vie Fit earphones.

 

After the initial pairing, Vie Fit will automatically connect to your phone as soon as you turn it on.

Vie Fit connects with phones, tablets, PCs, smart TVs and many other devices using Bluetooth Technology.

Compatible with:
Apple: iOS devices, MacOS computers
Android: phones, tablets, smartwatches

Risks and challenges

We have finalized our product design and it’s ready for mass production. We have a preliminary agreement in place with our manufacturing partner, who has many years of experience creating high spec audio equipment. That said, there is always a small chance of unexpected changes or issues arising during execution resulting in delays or cancellation. In the event of cancellation, we’ll refund your pledge.

Delays or cancellation may arise from; a change in specifications (requested by the operator) or execution by the factory which causes a significant cost increase; feasibility of local product approval requirements or local import regulations; the occurrence of a natural disaster, such as an earthquake or tsunami.
