You love listening to music and speaking cord-free on your phone.  Unfortunately, if you live in a city with cold winters, this proves to be a challenge.

After one too many commutes in Chicago and New York and experiencing earaches and freezing ears, we decided to come up with a solution.

 

And that's why we created Sound Huggle.

The World's Coziest Hi-Fidelity Headphones

Our patented headphones are built to be the world’s most comfortable, durable headphones that deliver premium studio sound quality.  Unlock your next bold adventure with these premium bluetooth headphone earmuffs that make cold listening possible.  

 

 

 

Inspired​ ​by​ ​our​ ​DJ​ ​experience​ ​over​ ​the​ ​last​ ​decade,​ ​the​ ​acoustical​ ​nature​ ​of​ ​our​ ​design​ ​creates a​ ​self-enclosed​ ​studio​ ​sound​ ​box​ ​around​ ​your​ ​ear​ ​that​ ​delivers​ ​high​ ​fidelity​ ​sound​ ​with​ ​deep​ ​rich bass,​ ​balanced​ ​midrange,​ ​and​ ​crisp,​ ​clear​ ​highs.  

Sound Huggles offer excellent full-range performance with deep, punchy bass that is filling and not over exaggerated. The mid-range is perfectly balanced with excellent voice and horn reproduction. The high frequencies are crisp and clean, not overly bright or piercing.

The headphones deliver an expansive sound stage with impressive depth and excellent stereo separation. On well mixed tracks, it sounds as if the audio experience is coming from a space much wider than the confines of the headphones.

  • Hi-Fi​ ​sound​ ​with​ ​crystal​ ​clear​ ​audio
  • Speaker​ ​Size:​ ​1.6​ ​in.​ ​+/-​ ​0.01​ ​in.​ ​x​ ​0.3​ ​in.​ ​+/-​ ​0.01​ ​in.
  • ​Impedance:​ ​32​ ​ohms​ ​(at​ ​1kHz)​ ​+/-​ ​15%
  • Speaker Frequency Range: 20-20 kHz
  • Input Sound Level 115 db +/- 3dB

 

At​ ​Sound​ ​Huggle,​ ​we​ ​believe​ ​in​ ​building​ ​high​ ​quality,​ ​lifelong​ ​products​ ​that​ ​enable​ ​you​ ​to embrace​ ​any​ ​adventure.​ ​Our​ ​headphones​ ​are​ ​engineered​ ​to​ ​be​ ​unstoppable​ ​and​ ​hide world-class​ ​sound​ ​inside​ ​a​ ​winter-inspired​ ​minimalist​ ​design. 

  • Instant​ ​accessibility​ ​with​ ​unique​ ​foldable​ ​design
  • Impossibly​ ​durable​ ​and​ ​can​ ​survive​ ​being​ ​run​ ​over​ ​by​ ​an​ ​3,010​ ​lb​ ​car
  • Withstands​ ​up​ ​to​ ​-5C/​ ​23F​ ​degrees​ ​thanks​ ​to​ ​a​ ​specially​ ​formulated,​ ​industrial​ ​strength engineered​ ​Polyoxymethlyene​ ​(POM),​ ​a​ ​material​ ​often​ ​used​ ​in​ ​precision​ ​parts​ ​for​ ​its​ ​high strength​ ​and​ ​rigidity
  • Patented​ ​one-size-fits-all​ ​design​ ​and​ ​360​ ​degree​ ​expandability​ ​to​ ​match​ ​any​ ​way​ ​you want​ ​to​ ​wear​ ​it

 

Our​ ​knit​ ​and​ ​fleece​ ​headphones​ ​bring​ ​ultimate​ ​warmth​ ​and​ ​comfort​ ​by​ ​building​ ​a​ ​microclimate around​ ​your​ ​ear.​ ​In​ ​addition​ ​to​ ​its​ ​knit​ ​and​ ​furry​ ​exterior,​ ​Sound​ ​Huggle​ ​encloses​ ​its​ ​speakers with​ ​layers​ ​of​ ​thermal​ ​foam​ ​and​ ​nano-foam​ ​composites​ ​for​ ​added​ ​cushioning,​ ​comfort,​ ​and optimal​ ​acoustics.​ ​​

​For​ ​added​ ​tactile​ ​softness,​ ​our​ ​custom-cable​ ​knit​ ​design​ ​is​ ​made​ ​possible​ ​by a​ ​central​ ​braid,​ ​which​ ​forms​ ​a​ ​unique​ ​interwoven​ ​cable-crossing​ ​design,​ ​set​ ​against​ ​a background​ ​of​ ​purl​ ​stitches.  

  • Lightweight​ ​material
  • Non-deforming​ ​fabric,​ ​won’t​ ​wrinkle
  • Heat​ ​retention​ ​design
  • Moisture​ ​wicking
  • Color​ ​stays​ ​vibrant​ ​with​ ​no-fade​ ​material
  • Acrylic​ ​knit​ ​allows​ ​for​ ​softer​ ​feel​ ​against​ ​your​ ​ears​ ​vs​ ​plastic​ ​or​ ​leather

WHY INDIEGOGO?
 

We’re starting our journey with Indiegogo because we believe the backer community will play an integral role in Sound Huggle’s development and release of new innovations. Through Indiegogo, we’re not just pre-selling our headphones to early adopters, but rather, forging relationships with a passionate community of creative and fashion-tech conscious individuals.  

Indiegogo, your feedback will enable us to bring the latest fashion audio-tech gear to market, and your support will enable us to continue to pour our blood, sweat, and tears to build a product that you’ll absolutely love.

 

HOW WILL WE USE THESE FUNDS?
 

We will be using these funds to create our first production orders of Sound Huggle headphone earmuffs, including all the tooling, molds and components that these complex designs need across knit patterns and designs.

 

TO OUR INTERNATIONAL BACKERS
 

This project isn't just for backers in the United States. We'll be shipping Sound Huggles worldwide.

Please note that shipping to any country outside the United States and Canada may be delayed or canceled depending on the feasibility of local product approval requirements or local import regulations.

In case of cancellation, we will refund your pledge. Additional taxes and duties may apply to your international order, as designated by the authorities in your country. You may need to take care of them yourself when receiving the shipment.

Please note that there is no way for us to charge an additional amount on our end for any applicable VAT/duties that may be a result of a specific country's local tax code. Therefore, these fees may be incurred upon receipt of your reward.

These fees are the responsibility of each backer, and additional information regarding VAT/duties can be found in our FAQ below.

 

RISKS AND CHALLENGES

Our team is excited to launch the world’s most durable, comfortable headphones that deliver studio sound quality. However, we know that the most important part of our process is that we fulfill our promise to you.

Though we have preliminary agreements with manufacturers, we want to mitigate risks for any potential road bumps along the way. Now that we have a working prototype, we will face the new challenge of managing production, packaging, and shipping worldwide. We are certainly up for this challenge with us forging relationships with advisors skilled in these departments and we’re confident we can deliver on our conservative timeline.
