Sound Band Kickstarter Campaign Passes Goal

We are over-the-moon excited about the number of people who continue to embrace the campaign. Their ongoing support is enabling us to bring Sound Band™ to market.

Hybra Advance Technology (Hybra) is today celebrating the early success of its Kickstarter crowd funding campaign for the company’s new product, Sound Band™, a wireless headset that does not use speakers.

“We are over-the-moon excited about the number of people who continue to embrace the campaign. Their ongoing support is enabling us to bring Sound Band™ to market,” said Ryan Wells, Managing Director of Hybra. “Early indications were that our Kickstarter campaign would do well - in just the first twelve hours, we had received pledges in excess of $28k.”

“The funds from the Kickstarter campaign will be used to move Sound Band into production,” said Mr. Wells. “We are excited by the possibilities that the funding provides. The campaign still has a long way to go, and the more support Sound Band gains, the faster Sound Band will change the personal audio game.”

Sound Band™ International Appeal

“The international support has been great, showing there are no boundaries to the universal understanding of the benefits of a headset that doesn’t use speakers, leaves your ears open, and can indeed change your life and revolutionize personal audio, forever,” said Mr. Wells. “That people from countries like Qatar, Namibia and Lithuania have joined those from Canada, Germany and The Netherlands in their interest to back Sound Band™ is incredible. We can’t wait to get Sound Bands from our studios to your ears. Come join the revolution!”

The Sound Band™ Kickstarter Campaign will continue until September 13.
