Like most of my creations, the idea for AudioPLUX™ was born during a long bike ride. I would love a good soundtrack while I'm putting in miles in the saddle, but I don't like how headphones and ear buds block out ambient sounds of nature, traffic and other cyclists. I refuse to wear them as It's just not safe. When I see people who ride with ear buds it hinders their ability to have a conversation with cycling friends or hear warnings. They scramble to grab their phone and turn down the sound or pop out an ear bud just to talk with me, which is a pain and isn't safe while riding in a group or navigating through busy streets.
I thought cyclists deserved a better alternative. So I made one.
The AudioPLUX™ speaker system is an easier, safer alternative that lets me listen to my favorite music, talk to my cycling partners and keep an ear out for cars all at the same time. And there's never any earbuds to mess with! (I don't know about you, but my right earbud always comes out while exercising.) The AudioPLUX™ cord also features a volume slider for on-the-fly control at your fingertips.
The AudioPLUX™ system redefines simple. You can have these out of the box and ready to go in seconds. The speakers connect with the microphone jack of any mp3 player – which also provides the power so you never need any batteries – and attach to your helmet using a dime-sized piece of 3M™ Dual Lock™ Reclosable Fasteners material, a state-of-the-art product that is FIVE TIMES stronger than Velcro. And the sound is a lot like listening to the stereo while riding in a convertible with the top down.
The AudioPLUX™ speaker system is easy to use and safe while making sure you don't miss your favourite song during your next ride. And best of all, they deliver quality sound at an affordable price. With your support, I'll be able to bring these to market. The money will go to the final moulds for the speakers, getting the materials for production and placing a bulk order to meet our pricing structure.
