During the final hours of its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, Axent Wear’s very popular Cat Ears has continuing to remain in the spotlight and has scored $2,469,071 thanks to 15,291 backers. Now, the projects’ creators have announced exciting news about the famous campaign and headphones’ retail pricing.
As previously reported, the California startup, which was created by Berkley alums Wenqing Yan and Victoria Hu, is setting out to make the most unique headphones to have ever hit store shelves. They are considered “glowing, badass” headphones that allow the user to blast their music and express their style. Each set offers high definition sounds and the user is given the option to share music with friends or just keep their favorite beats to themselves.
- Other features of the cat ear headphones include:
- 40mm driver with 20Hz to 20KHz frequency response
- USB charging or 3.5mm jack included
- Comfortable over-the-ears cushion that molds around the head
- Comes in four different colors: blue, red, green, and purple
Earlier this afternoon, Yan announced, “Due to huge demand and a large influx of emails requesting this, we are keeping the campaign open and the discounted $115 price for another 15 days! After Indiegogo notified us of this option, we wanted to thank you for your support and keep the price lower for a bit longer. We couldn’t have gotten this far without you, without your involvement and staying with us throughout this campaign. We also wanted to clear up any misunderstandings about the pricing. This campaign has been an incredible journey for us, and it’s all thanks to you!
“The $115 price ($150 after taxes and shipping) was always a discounted Indiegogo crowdfunding price to reward early backers. Afterwards, the price was always going to rise from $115 ($150 after taxes and shipping) to $135 (not including tax and shipping), so order yours now while you can! This is the last and only time Indiegogo is allowing us to extend this window so please use it. Afterwards, you can still preorder through our website, for the normal base price of $135. We are very lucky and grateful for such an amazing community of backers, and we’ll continue to strive to give you the best product possible.
“Click on the link below to preorder for $115. This is 15 days left and counting!”
For those looking to purchase the headphones through the campaign, each pair will come with fully functional external cat eat speakers, LED lights, detachable cord, comfortable over-the-ears cushioning, rechargeable batteries, and so much more.
