HearNotes Named Top Finalist in Staples Crowdfunding Contest; Offers Pre-Orders for First Ever “WireFree” Earbuds

HearNotes Inc., creator of the first premium WireFree earbuds for superior mobile audio, announced today it is a finalist in the Fundable Crowd2Shelf contest sponsored by Staples Inc.

Hearnotes 2After an avalanche of votes from consumers wanting to see the product on store shelves, HearNote is now offering on the Crowd2Shelf contest site an exclusive two-month pre-order special for the first early adopters that purchase the headphone industry’s best innovation in portable audio in more than a decade.

Designed for everyone who wants to listen to music during most any activity and continues to be frustrated with tangled wires and the existing limitations from so-called wireless options, HearNotes represents a breakthrough solution that strongly outperforms its Bluetooth alternatives.

The listening experience is further enhanced with the technology’s extremely low latency and power consumption that renders a sleek, attractive design for the increasingly fashionable consumer.

Patrick DonohueCEO of HearNotes, Patrick Donohue stated, “Music and technology lovers have long known that Bluetooth does not deliver outstanding sound quality. Our initial research indicated that consumers were strongly vocal about their desire for a superior portable audio solution.”

“The most astonishing find was not only this segment’s frustrations with Bluetooth, but that their feedback was being largely ignored by the headphone industry.HearNotes was inspired to genuinely solve this problem and deliver pristine wireless audio quality while also enhancing convenience, utility and style.”

The secret of this San Francisco-based product startup is in the core technology and innovative design. HearNotes is integrated with Microchip’s highly advanced, stable and well–engineered wireless protocol Kleer, with its revolutionary advantages over other wireless solutions.

Kleer delivers lossless CD-quality audio that is far superior to the comparable Bluetooth alternative. A small transmitter conveniently plugs into the 3.5mm headphone jack of the listening device, so no pairing is necessary and virtually any device is compatible.

Patrick MoorheadLead technology analyst and principal at Moor Insights, Patrick Moorhead, said, “As the Human Internet of Things (HIoT) evolves, wearable technology will only be successful if it solves a problem for the consumer, and does so in a manner that is simple, sleek, comfortable and stylish.”

“Delivering a high performance, wireless earbud listening experience for those who want easy to connect, CD-quality audio is a problem Bluetooth just can’t solve. HearNotes is onto something special.”

The HearNotes package includes:

  • Hearnotes 3A pair of two WireFree earbuds: Equipped with premium speakers called balanced armature receivers
  • Versatile transmitter: Plugs into any 3.5mm headphone jack to instantly transmit wireless audio to the earbuds
  • Portable charging case: Inductively charge all three pieces (two earbuds and transmitter) and serve as a protective carrying case for storage and transport

HearNotes is available for pre-order at $219. This is a $130 savings off the expected early 2015 retail MSRP of $349. If HearNotes is selected as the contest’s final winner, it will also be sold in Staples outlets across the U.S.
