Earshot Action Headphones
Hi Sparkxster, that is a great idea. We will chat about it internally and let you know later in the week. Thanks for the feedback!

Could you make a Bluetooth version? Possibly as a stretch goal? I love the design and the way the bud fits in your ear.
Earshot Action Headphones
Hi Sparkxster, thanks for the question. The first version of the headphones we are proposing will not have bluetooth. We have been really focused on our customers who want to go out and run/bike/skate for anywhere between 3-10 hours in one session. To achieve the battery life required for that type of range, and have them fully wireless, we think onboard music/content is the way to go. If you look at the new fully wireless headphones, they are using a tech called NFMI (Near Field Magnetic Induction) combined bluetooth. These technologies punish battery life, not to mention the NFMI is passing a magnetic signal straight through the brain/ear canal, which we don't think is good for people's health. We choose to say optional on our campaign because we know people still love taking their phone to use its other capabilities.

Does the earshot have Bluetooth? I read on the campaign page that taking your phone is optional so im assuming that (Bluetooth)? is in them?
Earshot Action Headphones
Hi Steven thanks for the question. The answer is yes. We will be trying our best to balance the needs of the early adopters who are always updating their technology, with those who may be a little bit behind. We will look to make a decision based on the balance of those two things.

@Creator Is there any way you could use usb-c instead of micro usb? Micro usb is really outdated in 2017, and on the pledge it says we will get them next year so they will be even more outdated.

Hi Wai,
The headphones will have basic playback controls on them so you will be able to play/pause, skip tracks and control volume without the phone. The earpieces will start charging when placed into the case from the onboard battery. The battery in the case will charge via the micro USB. Once you have music on the headphones a phone isn't required.
Wai Yim
Thanks for the quick response. Couple of follow-up questions:
- With Micro-USB, do you mean the dock will need to be connected and the headphones will charge wirelessly?
- If the Earshot app is needed, we can't really go phone-less right?
- As the app and phone is needed (bluetooth?), will you consider music streaming?
Earshot Action Headphones
Hi Wai, thanks for the questions. Full specs will be available after as we still have some final engineering work to do. However, I can say that the headphones are charged via Micro USB by being docked in our Earshot Launch Pad. For controls, they are via our Earshot app which configures the headphones (track list, volume etc). Yes we always take feedback from our users, all the way through our development process we have worked with small groups of users to make recommendations on where we need to take the product. And yes we will be continuing to build our existing beta testing group with people who show commitment through the pledging. Hope that helps!
Wai Yim
Great idea and love the road to creation story! Couple of questions:
- Would tech specs be available before or after this kickstarter closes?
- How do controls work?
- How does charging work?
- Will you take community feedback into consideration during development?
- Any need for beta testers? :)
Earshot Action Headphones
Hi Provis, yes this is 15 hours on one charge.
Earshot Action Headphones
Hi JK, thanks for the question. currently we don't have a finalized tech spec. What we can say is that we are taking the approach that Earshot stores the content on the headphones, our headphones are not bluetooth. Music will be transferred to the headphones when they are in the Launch Pad dock. This approach is allowing us to have increased battery life on the headphones and have less impact on the battery life of the phone. Sorry I can't provide further detail at this stage.

Is 15 hours the length of one charge?
JK Law
Hi, any tech spec for Earshot? Thanks!
Earshot Action Headphones
Hi Simon, as additional info, the headphones don't come with the case. They are seperate pledges and gifts. You can pledge $38 for the case by itself if you have already pledged the $79 for the headphones.
Earshot Action Headphones
Hi Simon, thanks for the message. You sure can! The pledge called Trigger the rush is the best deal on the case and the Earshot headphones.
Simon Arthur McDonnell
Can we order a case as well as the head phones? Or do the headphones come with a case etc?
