Meet Axum Gear Earbuds
The earbuds are designed to fit every ear. Using a hook like feature, similar to buds with a sports fin, Axum Gear is able to securely lock into every shape ear. Igal Golovan, the founder, promises their silicone jacket and hook design will stay put regardless of your workout routine.
Golovan, a self-proclaimed fitness junkie, said he came up with the idea because he wanted to provide fellow gym rats with the ability to listen to quality music without a hassle. “I’ve always been an active guy with two passions—extreme sports and music,” writes Golovan. “So, when I first heard about Bluetooth headphones, I figured there would be no better way to bring together the things I love to do. The next day, I bought a generic pair—they were awful.”
Working with German sound engineers at Konzept-X, Axum Gear is able to use M-voiD technology solely found in luxury cars to provide what Axum describes as the realistic and predictive audio simulations created by wired audio products.
That being said, Axum Gear earbuds use Bluetooth and aptX technology to retain a quality connection. They also possess waterproof nano-coating to keep the buds functional regardless of how hard you’re pumping iron.
At this time, I’m unaware of the specs, but have inquired further with Golovan. However, if these buds have at least piqued your interest you can sign up for the Axum newsletter on AxumGear.com. Your subscription will entitle you to 50 percent off of the earbuds (for early subscribers) although I’m unaware of the projected cost. Golovan has advised Axum Gear will be running an Indiegogo campaign soon which will be located here soon.
