The digital age has completely reshaped how music is shared, but headphones have not kept pace – until now. Wearhaus, a hardware startup founded by two 21-year-old UC Berkeley dropouts, is catapulting this classic piece of hardware into the 21st century with their brand new headphones, the Wearhaus Arc.
Wearhaus previously launched a crowdfunding campaign on its own website to raise $75,000 for its first batch of the Arc, now the startup is seeking to score $50,000 during their time on the crowdfunding giant’s platform.
“Throughout the development process, our users played a huge part in telling us what they really want in their headphones,” CEO of Wearhaus, Richie Zeng, explained. Beyond comfort and audio quality, the company found that listening to music is fundamentally far more social and more personal than headphones currently allow for. “Just like your musical taste, the headphones you wear should be an expression of your style and personality.”
Since its launch on Wednesday (November 12th), Wearhaus’ Arc campaign has raised over $40,000 from nearly 230 backers. It is set to close on December 12th.
