Look around you at the people on the street, biking, driving or commuting. As omnipresent as their mobile phones are, so go the head phones.
No wonder Ashley Chloe, developers of the Helix Cuff, a digital wearable, reported today that they had surpassed their Kickstarter “stretch goal” of $250,000.
In celebration of this milestone, Ashley Chloe is unlocking the Helix color palette so that fashion-forward supporters can choose a “black-on-black” option in addition to the current black, white and red cuffs with silver, champagne gold and 18K gold embellishments.
Helix is the first wearable wrist cuff with stereo Bluetooth wireless headphone technology. The portable “Helix Cuff provides on-the-go access to advanced in-ear headphones that you pair with your favorite mobile, wearable and smart devices across various OS such as Android and iOS.”
Helix features aptX technology to provide CD-like high-quality stereo audio, multipoint technology to enable simultaneous connectivity to two devices, and cVc technology to increase voice quality and reduce background noise, the company says. Moreover, the design of Helix allows you to wrap the connecting cord for the headphones into a groove on the cuff while you are traveling or on the go.
