Maker of award-winning, noise-cancelling Bluetooth earphones is providing fans a chance to receive early shipment at a discounted rate ahead of global launch on Amazon Exclusives

ORFEO SoundWorks, the pioneer of noise-blocking Bluetooth headsets, is announcing that its Kickstarter campaign has launched. The company has developed specific communication solutions for the B2B market as well as three types of Bluetooth headsets for consumers, which were selected as a CES 2016 Innovation Awards honorees in the headphones category. The Kickstarter launch marks the first opportunity for consumers to pre-order ORFEO SoundWorks’ award-winning, noise-cancelling Bluetooth earphones, which will be shipped directly to consumers. The Kickstarter campaign has a goal of $50,000, and the purpose is to give ORFEO’s fans both early access to the products, and a discounted price before launching to the general public through Amazon Exclusives.

“We are very excited to get our earphones into the hands of consumers,” said Tommy Kim, founder and CEO of ORFEO SoundWorks. “We have spent years developing a truly superior Bluetooth noise-cancelling headset, and we are thrilled to offer people a product that will so greatly enhance their listening and communication experience. It isn’t an exaggeration to say our products will change the way people live.”

The better Bluetooth communication solution

While the average Bluetooth headphones are not ideal for noisy environments because the microphone is far from the mouth and picks up background noise, ORFEO SoundWorks has put the microphone inside of the earphone to catch the voice traveling through the Eustachian tube, thus blocking out all additional sound interference.

ORFEO Bluetooth Earphones allow the user to have clear communication while in a loud place, even if the ambient noise level reaches 120dB—the noise level of an airplane engine as it is taking off. Other uses include a concert, sporting event, amusement park or at an airport. Other Bluetooth headsets can only reduce the noise level up to 6dB, due to the distance between the mic and the speaker’s mouth, however, ORFEO headsets are able to reduce the noise level up to 35dB.

The earphones employ patented technology to ensure the voice has a natural sound. This means that clear, hands-free communication is now possible while driving in a convertible or while attending a concert, baseball game, convention or party – with no shouting necessary.

In terms of B2B applications, the technology will facilitate communication in construction, factories, call centers, the military, aviation and police work.

Music has never sounded so good

ORFEO Bluetooth headsets provide Hi-Fi sound for a perfect listening experience, whether the user is enjoying music or playing 3D games in virtual reality. The headsets use a special single balanced armature that is manufactured by Toshiba-Samsung Storage Technology and tuned by the company’s top sound engineers with the rich sound database, allowing the headsets to reproduce a full-range of sound. Additionally, ORFEO supports apt-X to provide HD sound solution for Bluetooth headsets.

While listening to music, users have the option of blocking outside noise or letting it through so that bicyclists, joggers or other adventurers can be more aware of their surroundings.

The same technology, three different styles

ORFEO SoundWorks’ noise-blocking Bluetooth earphones come in three different styles: ORFEO Sign, for exercise or sports; ORFEO Infinite, the neckband headset for everyday use and ORFEO Voice, the mono headset for hands-free conversations while driving.

ORFEO is backed by Toshiba-Samsung Storage Technology (TSST), the largest ODD manufacturing company that developed the top-performing balanced armature that ORFEO uses. TSST invested in the production of two ORFEO headsets, the INFINITE and SIGN. To date, ORFEO has raised a total of $2.7M in funding from a government grant, Idea Bridge and manufacturing partner TSST.

Prior to the Kickstarter campaign, ORFEO is releasing the ORFEO CONTROL APP, a free applications available for Android and iOS. The app allows users to easily pair the headset, adjust the EQ and turn on the SoundThru function, which allows some ambient noise to filter through the headsets for safe exercising.
