ODDIO Headphones: The First Modular Audio Platform
 
Embrace your inner ODDIO. The world’s only customizable, indisposable audio platform.
 
OVERVIEW
 
 

ODDIO is more than a headphone. It’s an entirely new approach to listening, where every aspect of the style and sound is yours to customize. Change colors, change speakers, magnetically swap out batteries, Active Noise Cancelling and Bluetooth modules – ODDIO adapts on the fly, and sounds even better than it looks.

 

UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU’VE HEARD

 

 

ODDIO is a modular headphone system with superior sound quality and the ability to replace or upgrade components as you see fit. Skins, modules and batteries attach magnetically. You can switch up the skins and frames for a whole new look, swap out ear cups for a different sound profile, and attach Bluetooth or Active Noise Cancellation modules based on your needs. 

PLUG-AND-PLAY UPGRADES

Bluetooth and Noise-cancelling Modules Available at Launch

Bluetooth (BT)

Snap on our Bluetooth for cordless freedom, and enjoy crystal clear sound with none of the personal entanglement.

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)

Our ANC obliterates ambient noise and creates a sound vacuum between you and your ODDIO‚ leaving nothing but the music you want to hear.

HIGH FIDELITY FASHION

Change Your Look with Color, Materials and Textures

With interchangeable accessories including new materials, textures and colors for the frame plate and ear caps, ODDIO is a fashion statement that can be changed daily to suit your outfit, or just your mood. Look for new designs after launch.

SOUND DIFFERENT

Swap Speakers to Suit Unique Needs

ODDIO will debut with precision speakers boasting a wide acoustic range, from deep lows to crisp highs. And since our ear cups are modular, we can roll out speakers with entirely different acoustic qualities in the future.

Mid

Low

High

KEEP IT COMFORTABLE.

Because Everyone Enjoys Being Comfortable.

ODDIO was designed for long periods of use, and the comfort and durability this requires. There are no pressure points, and we use only high-quality materials such as leather in our build, with plans to expand the line with new styles and colors.


HOW IT WORKS

The World’s Only Customizable, Indisposable Audio Platform

ODDIO’s frames are built to last, and feature interchangeable skins to customize your look in a snap. Skins, batteries and tech modules attach magnetically to pins on the frame, allowing you to swap between skin colors, Bluetooth and Active Noise Cancelling modules. The skin on the frame can be swapped out as well. We’ll be offering black and white base frames at launch, but are also looking at adding new colors as a stretch goal – so stay tuned!


WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

We hit the streets with ODDIO to see what people thought of the quality of our sound, the modularity of our headphones, and how it felt on their ears. The response was loud and clear.

We got DJ KIDD to put ODDIO to the test with his own rig. DJs are easily the pickiest customers out there, but ODDIO came out with flying colors. 
 

Pokemon Go Set: Customize with 3 Colors and 12 Characters

When you order the Pokemon Go set, you get a second set of skins of your choice of yellow, blue or red team colors and up to 12 characters per ear cap, available in black or white font. Customize them however you want – they’re not just for Pokemon fans!
