A new Berkley, Calif. startup company, Wearhaus, has today launched a crowdfunding project to produce a line of wireless headphones for iOS that are designed to reflect and encourage the social way in which people listen to their music on their mobile devices.
The Wearhaus Arc headphones were inspired by the recent music festival “silent disco” trend, and use Bluetooth technology to sync multiple users’ headphones.
Wearhaus was founded by two ex-Berkeley engineering students, Nelson Zhang and Richie Zeng, who also wanted to ensure that they headphones also look really cool, in keeping with the current trend for designer headphones such as Beats by Dre.
Each of the headphone set’s earcups has a ring-shaped backlight that can be set to any colour via the mobile iOS app, so that when other people tune in to your music, their lights will pulse the same colour as yours, so you’ll be able to see instantly who is enjoying your music with you.
Wearhaus was built in Highway 1, a hardware startup incubator owned by PCH International, which is the product development and supply chain company that also creates develops and delivers products for the likes of Apple, Beats by Dre and many more.
They want $75,000 to start making these beauties, so check them out at the source link below.
