Calculating time remaining

The best moments in life are made for sharing, that's why we created STREAMR, a unique social audio device that lets you stream your audio with an unlimited number of people around you via the latest Bluetooth technology.   

STREAMR is made for sharing, that's why we've designed four stunning colors so you can tell which one is yours and match it to your personal style. 

STREAMR works super simple (although it took a lot of effort to get us there). You simply connect the first STREAMR to your phone/laptop/tablet with Bluetooth like you would any other headset. And then the magic happens! The first STREAMR turns into, well, a streamer! And other STREAMRS around it pick up on the signal with the exact same audio without any delay.

You're now ready to enjoy your favorite audio with your favorite people. Share a movie on a plane, start an impromptu silent disco in the subway with your friends or huddle around a Zoom call with crystal clear sound.  

 

STREAMR works with any regular set of headphones if you've already got your favorites that you're not ready to part ways with. STREAMR's high-end Bluetooth chips and microphone give you crystal clear wireless audio, giving you perfect conference call audio on headphones that originally didn't even have a mic

 

We're also including a single earbud that's purposefully designed for STREAMR when you need to quickly answer a call or store it with one hand. Using a powerful, tiny magnet it clips onto your STREAMR so you always have your audio within reach. 

 

The magnetic earbud fits snug in your ear and the cable is optimized for a shorter length, making it a great tangle-free option to use during workouts.


 If you want to pick up a phonecall hands-free, just give STREAMR a tap anywhere on the device, it's super simple.  

 

We've searched high and low for the very best components because we want you to enjoy your STREAMR for years to come. We see our fair share of shoddily engineered Bluetooth 💩, and we don't want that. 

That's why we're using Qualcomm's aptX chipset, combined with an amp from Texas Instruments, it ain't cheap but it sounds great. A built-in rechargeable battery lets you use STREAMR for up to 10 hours at normal volume.

Even though STREAMR comes in a tiny housing, it packs a punch.


If you need low latency to blast through walls without delay in your sound, we've got a Pro-gamer edition for you! 

(using STREAMR w/ Genki Audio for Switch)

It's the same awesome STREAMR, but we've upgraded the Bluetooth chip to aptX-LL instead of aptX-HD.  The combination of low latency and endless multi-user audio is a first in gaming and it allows you to have gaming parties with a large group of friends, even when you're socially distancing. (It's depressing that we have to mention this, but yeah, keep that distance!)

We've designed four beautiful colors, from deep black to rose gold for you to choose from. To keep things simple, you don't choose your color when you checkout on Kickstarter, but when we send you an email to ask for your address, you'll also be able to specify the colors you want to receive. Feel free to mix & match if you order a bunch, we know life isn't just black and white. The black & white colors are available on all reward tiers, the rose gold and forest green are available Family pack & up.

All rewards come with our signature single-piece earbud with built-in magnets to make it snap back on STREAMR and accessories like charging cables and a manual.

And here's when you'll get the reward of your choice:

Hi! We're Adon and Joris, Adon is a manufacturing veteran and Joris used to work at Kickstarter. In 2017  Jackster, a product from Adon's factory was launched on Kickstarter, which was a new way to make wired headsets wireless (it was very cool in 2017, ok!?). We met at Trouble Maker, our favorite maker space at the heart of Shenzhen's electronics district. Where we started playing around with the old Jackster units and came up with the idea to use the molds for the enclosures with new circuit boards to make a completely new thing. Making the molds for the plastics is the most expensive part of any hardware product, so we figured if we could re-use those, we wouldn't have to raise a fortune to make something awesome and new, and so STREAMR was born.

The Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) of STREAMR and Jackster

Support our friends at Trouble Maker! Our favorite independently-owned maker space in Shenzhen is a community hub for people from all over the world who are making a hardware project come to life. In fact, many Kickstarter creators come here after their campaign to turn their prototype into a real product! 

The team

We're a 3-man band, with Adon in charge of R&D and manufacturing, Joris in charge of the Kickstarter campaign and Michel Pierre in charge of design & PR! We're all based/stuck in Asia at the moment, but since we're originally from the UK, we're running the campaign in British Pounds.

Demo time!

Risks and challenges

We've set a really low funding goal for an electronics product, and you might be thinking, how can these guys pull it off? Well, because we're recycling the plastics from a previous product! All we need to do is create new circuit boards, which we've already made and tested a bunch of. Our biggest risk is if this campaign blows up and we have to scale up from our current factory to a bigger one.
