EarTop Makes a World Without Wires a Reality, Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Bring High-Definition Wireless to Any Audio Device
MIAMI, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Finally, a world without wires: EarTop Technologies (http://www.eartop.com) has unveiled a sneak peek at FLOW, a small, lightweight Bluetooth device that plugs into the jack on headphones and other audio devices to deliver crystal clear, high-definition sound – without the wires. The company recently launched a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to generate crowd funding and support (http://kck.st/MIIPv3). FLOW is scheduled to be ready in time for Christmas delivery.
FLOW was created by a team of college students, led by CEO and President Ketan Rahangdale – a University of Miami sophomore and former deejay who was tired of getting tangled in his headphone wires. Working with his classmates and design firm G5 Engineering Solutions, Ketan created FLOW to attach easily to high-end headphones like Bose and Beats by Dre – instantly making them wireless, without compromising sound quality. Advanced Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR & APTX technology ensures studio-quality sound for up to 30 feet, with up to 12 hours of uninterrupted battery life. FLOW is small and sleek, weighing just over 1 ounce and featuring simple, capacitive touch controls. It’s perfect for working out, gaming, traveling, partying, or just enjoying the music. Noise canceling capabilities means FLOW works great for phone calls, too.
EarTop will also leverage the core technology behind FLOW to bring high-definition wireless to cars, boats, home stereos, and more, and to develop its own line of high-end wireless headphones and speakers.
Kickstarter supporters who pledge $60 or more will automatically get a FLOW unit as soon as it’s released, in time for the holiday season – but the first 200 people to pledge just $50 will each get one, too! Support the campaign today at http://kck.st/MIIPv3, or get more information at http://www.eartop.com.
