Listening to music is a personal experience. Some like bass while others love treble, but up until now, headphones couldn’t be customized to account for different preferences. Ropes USA transforms the classic earphones into a sophisticated and sleek audio product that revolutionizes the way people listen to their favorite tunes. Developed by Steven Lamar, ROAM CEO and co-creator of Beats by Dr. Dre, the ROAM Ropes USA Bluetooth earphones give complete power to the user.

A world first, they feature a built-in amplifier and EQ engine with a companion app. This puts the user in charge of the sound and provides an easy way to customize the listening experience. Designed by Astro Studios to resemble a medal one wears with pride, the earphones pay homage to American heroes: Olympians, elite athletes, and service men and women. The first Ropes USA will be worn this summer by athletes representing USA at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Starting from fall, a set of Artist Sound Signatures created by various artists will be available to download by ROAM users, allowing them to listen to songs as the artists have envisioned them. You can back the campaign to pre-order the earphones at a reduced price and have them in your ears by this August, when the first deliveries are scheduled to reach the backers.
