The process of Zero to One

Dear backers, As you’re certainly aware, building a great company doesn’t happen overnight. It’s especially true with any hardware company who goes above and beyond standard products. Maybe a relatively new well-known car company can remind you of this (now the world’s largest automaker by market capitalization). In our context, the process of designing the […]..Read more

The final laps

Hi Backers, I’m sure you guys know that some companies jumped into the true wireless bandwagon.

Charging case + earbuds electronic design

Dear backers, There are things we regret and others we don’t. We spent a lot of time working with Canadian manufacturers because it was important for us to build the earbuds in our own country.
