About us -
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 in the groups fell out and lawsuits flying, 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!
Our latest venture is a modular system. The Eddy is the headphone platform( based on our Shuffle headphones), 2 versions - 1 waterproof and 1 with interchangeable earbuds (finally, a headphone that can be repaired, parts replaced or customized/upgraded. You will no longer need to toss the whole headphone with only one faulty part in an ever-growing garbage heap). They also come with a wire which has a microphone - two headphones in one!
Now we’re bringing out a Bluetooth module (Leo II) which will be the size of the Shuffle and will fit on the existing Eddy headphone so from one headphone there will be three choices!
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!
Designed, developed and tested in Telluride, Colorado.
