Tired of having losing your headphones? Or spending 10 minutes untangling them every time you want to hear some music? Today’s crowdfunding feature, Flux Headphones, may be your answer.
Flux Headphones have small, lightweight magnets that allow your headphones to stick to itself. Whether you wrap it to your wrist or stick it to the fridge, you can always find untangled headphones. They will be available in both standard iPhone earbud and in-ear options. Normally priced at $49.95 and $74.95 respectively, if pre-ordered through their crowdfunding campaign they are offering a 50% discount. His goal is to generate enough pre-orders to pay for production molds and his initial inventory order.
Entrepreneur Matt Scandora invented Flux Headphones. Scandora has startup experience with BookEndz Apple computer docking stations and a reseller, Just Dock It. Scandora identified missing and tangled headphones as a common problem six months ago. Since then he has spent his time and several thousand dollars developing the product, including getting prototype samples and selecting the ideal materials. He feels consumers will adapt Flux Headphones because they are a simple solution with no additional add-ons or attachments.
Scandora believes people will contribute to his project for a practical reason – they themselves have lost or faced tangled headphones. So his rewards system focuses on getting his product into contributor’s hands. Equally as simple, his marketing has focused on social media.
According to Scandora:
Crowdfunding is an exciting new way for entrepreneurs to get their ideas off the ground. All it takes is a good idea and people will be willing to help.
