There were so most excellent products to see at CE Week that it was complex to donate a few of them additional than a passing glance. I didn’t get to the Phazon booth until the end of the expo, that is too bad for the reason this is one product that deserved a little extra attention. The Phazon earbuds are, according to their developers, the world’s initially one-dimensions-fits-all wireless earbuds—guaranteed not to fall out, with only one dimensions and no inserts.
Phazon was started by Chris Houle, who was unsatisfied with the current say of very own audio, especially the way that athletes struggle with the wires. He and so gathered an amazing team, created of two engineers and one industrial developer.
“We believe that each product requires to be as easy as possible,” says Houle. “With the Phazon earbuds, you don’t require an app or various inserts to have a effortless experience. It is eager to wear once you have it.”
Phazon earbuds are particularly well-suited for athletes or anyone engaging in physical activities where cords may get in the way. The earbuds work with Bluetooth and come with an appealing charging case that can be attached to a keychain. They are fully sealed and water resistant, producing them ideal for water sports.
The benefits of the Phazon earbuds include:
Truly wireless sound: No additional tangled wires, “cord pull” or limited range of motion. Whilst the earbuds have no wires at all, you can yet be assured of a constant connection.One-dimensions-fits-all: The Phazon team tested the earbuds on over 500 random individuals, all who reported a 100% effortless fit. Whilst eachone has a various earlobe, we all share the same inner core pattern, and Phazon’s patent pending form factor and easy twist motion assure a effortless and secure fit for eachone.No inserts required: Inserts (such as plastic and foam) tend to fall out in an active environment. Phazon earbuds allow you to work out, ski and actually swim without worrying that your earbuds can fall out.Fully waterproof: Swimming with headphones obviously does not work – or it didn’t until now. Thanks to Phazon’s waterproof create, swimmers can now enjoy music in the pool.Color availability: Phazon earbuds come in a variety of bright colors which include crimson, lush (green), perse (purple), graphite, ashen, midnight and sunset.
Phazon earbuds in addition include top-notch speakers of, according to the team, “a well known audio company,” plus audio controls right on the earbuds. High energy density lithium ion batteries ensure up to six hours of continuous play, and high end audio allows for for up to 30 meters of transmission. These earbuds are smart, too. If you misplace your Phazons, you can find them with an app on your smartphone. To play, pause and skip tracks, you only have to tap the earbuds, and holding them for three seconds turns them on or off.
And what role did 3D printing offer to creating this one-of-a-kind product? Extensive prototyping was required to get only the right fit and finish. According to Phazon, it took a lot of trial and error to come up with a exquisite, functional product.
“We created that possible by incorporating 2 special showcases. First, we managed to test hundreds of 3D printed prototypes to ideal the form factor. Second, we discovered an new way to lock the earbuds in the ear. We call this technique “Spin Secured”. By doing the motion represented only above, the earbuds are tightly anchored in the ear. It all but works like a twist capsule you see on bottles – when it’s locked, there is no way it’s going to fall out.”
The charging case for the earbuds in addition has a cutting edge, modern create. It holds at very least three extra charges for the earbuds and there is actually a convenient keychain hole on top so you can easily carry it with you. You can charge the case with the included micro USB. You can see a demonstration of the 3D printed prototype charging case in the video below:
Phazon won Best in Show at CE Week 2016. The Phazon wireless earbuds had a successful Indiegogo campaign in January 2016; they were 1818% funded, raising over $1.8 million. Phazon is already accepting pre-orders on Indiegogo for as low as $179 (retail price: $199), with shipment expected for Indiegogo backers in November 2016.
