Motorcyclists who ride with earphones are well aware of the issues associated with using them. First, most earphones/earbuds protrude from the ear and make donning a helmet a challenge without pulling them out of place. Second, many earbuds do nothing to protect a rider’s hearing by attenuating the noise of high-speed wind flowing past the helmet. RiderBuds appear to address both of these issues. You can bet that we’re anxious to test them!
Begin Press Release:
The innovative audio solution for riders successfully reaches its crowdfunding goal in 3 hours.
New York, NY – November 7- RiderBuds™has just launched its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, and after only 3 hours reached its $30,000 goal and has more than doubled since.
RiderBuds™ are known as the “Ultimate” earphones for riders: they combine comfort, crisp sound at any speed, and protect your hearing.
“We’ve created quite literally the smallest earphones ever made,” says Maurice Dziubinski, CEO and founder of the startup.
RiderBuds are specially made for motorcycle riders and are sized to fit entirely inside the ear canal. Maurice said, “This is the only and best way to make sure they don’t interfere with the proper wear of the helmet, no matter how tight it is.”
Say goodbye to earphones getting dislodged, breaking seal, or becoming uncomfortable on long rides.
The startup founder claims to have done his homework. “Over the last year of research and development, I’ve talked with over 1,000 riders around the world in the process. We’ve also done a few thousand surveys. We’ve listened and created what everyone wanted – RiderBuds is the final solution to all of riders’ main challenges with audio.”
RiderBuds are funding through Indiegogo now – early adopters can still pre-order them at the special $129 price, discounted $70 off the MSRP.
