Michigan based Hybra and their Sound Band headset that uses speaker-less technology has cruised past their $175,000 crowdfunding goal on Kickstarter and now stands well over $400,000 raised with more than two weeks left in their campaign.
The $400,000 was a stretch goal set and passed which allowed the organizers to add a wired option using a 3.5 mm jack plus an upgraded chip for reduced power consumption. These new additions to the device was driven by feedback captured on the campaign page on Kickstarter.
Ryan Wells, Managing Director of Hybra stated,
“The comments left on our Sound Band Kickstarter Campaign page have been insightful, challenging, and thought-provoking. And it was this feedback that was the impetus for creating a stretch goal of $400,000 – a goal that we are excited to announce has now been surpassed.”
To thank its Kickstarter backers, past, present, and future, Hybra has also announced that each backer receiving a Sound Band will receive a special hardshell carrying case.
“It has been invaluable to see and hear first-hand how our Kickstarter backers will be using their Sound Band, and what features will make them love their new headset even more” said Mr. Wells. “And we want to thank them in a practical way by including a hardshell carrying case for their Sound Band – to keep their new headset safe when it’s not on their heads.”
The initial goal of $175k was passed in just 5 days. The stretch goal beat took another 10. With two weeks left in the funding round – it will be interesting to see where it closes.
