World’s First Consumer Custom Fit Wireless Earphones Hit $1m on Kickstarter



/ 3 years ago

Earphones, while compact and convenient, don’t get along with everyone. The generic moulds that accompany most consumer in-ear headphones do not fit everybody, and the few custom fit options that are available are prohibitively expensive for most, costing upwards of $1,000/£1,500. A recent Kickstarter, though, hopes to bring a cheaper alternative to traditional custom methods with the Revol Quick Custom-Fit Wireless Earphones.

The Revol – which at time of writing has smashed its $100,000 goal, raising $1,514,008 with seven days still to run – uses a moulding technique to create a perfect fit for your ear that you yourself control, using a companion phone app. The moulding process takes just 60 seconds, leaving the nano-composite gel ergonomically shaped to fit your ear.

The Early Bird Specials have now sold out, so if you’d like to support the Kickstarter and get yourself a pair of Revol Quick Custom-Fit Wireless Earphones, you will need to pledge at least $199. While hardly an insignificant amount of money, the Revol is certainly cheaper than other custom fit earphone options.

For that money, you will receive:

“A pair of Revols earphones (choice of black or white) + 2 sets of molding tips + 1 carrying case + 1 Revive battery pack + 1 charging cable + 2 sports skins (black or white & Kickstarter green) + 2 cable management discs.”

The Revol Quick Custom-Fit Wireless Earphones are slated to ship to Kickstarter backers from June 2016. There is no news yet on a consumer edition being launched.
