About Arriva -
We started making headphones when competing in triathlons and needed music to help get through the grueling training. Music really helps to make training/working out so much more enjoyable.
Our first successful headphone, Wired, came out in 2006 and still selling as the wire runs down the center of your back and as one reviewer wrote “that clings to your head like a hungry squid when fitted correctly.“
Then our Shuffle headphones which David Pogue wrote "They may just be the best tech idea of the year." ... Sept 18th 2008.
Next was the Leo our Bluetooth headphones again David Pogue wrote “ingenious-new-earbuds-from-arriva” … May 2012.
Then the glitch .. we were approached by a group in July 2013 who wanted to use our design in their Sports Bluetooth headphone, we were thrilled. World wide distribution in place, brilliant US marketing team and we would get royalties. We received these headphones in June 2014, while not thrilled with design or sound we thought they would work. Within 6 months the 2 entities involved fell out and lawsuits ensued, we were stuck in the middle and told to stop selling them. The setback was huge for us, lost several years in not having a product to sell.
But we’re back!
Now we’re bringing back our Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless, Stereo, Sports Headphones (Leo II) which will be made in the USA!
Our goals: Wireless, handsfree communications for when you need your hands and eyes for more important tasks. Our headphones are designed to move with you, not against you becoming a wearable you forget you are wearing! Best fitting headphones!
Designed, developed and tested in Telluride, Colorado.

Review by Runner's World:
"The Arrivas were designed for snowboarders and rock climbers who need headphones that won't budge. They sport a zigzag wraparound wire that clings to your head like a hungry squid when fitted correctly."
