Why aren't we funding this?

Heres the link to the kickstarter page: www.kickstarter.com/projects/701992503/the-worlds-only-earbuds-with-no-strings-attached

So from skimming the comments, it has been made clear that people kind of think this idea is, well, stupid. Or at least needs to be updated. But until then, please check out this: www.phonebloks.com/ . There is a video on the very first page, so just watch that and please reply to this comment what you think about it. I personally would love it, because of all the possibilities of customization. Thanks

I realise the technology is still in infancy, but here's just a small list of reasons why I'm not funding this.

I wouldn't buy them because I'd loose them in about 2.3 hrs after purchasing them.

Because if you own an iphone or ipod touch you can buy a set of bluetooth headphones for like $70 and have 100 times the songs at your disposal, and longer playtime.

It's not being funded because, while it is a neat concept, there are better solutions available for less money.

When I was in 8th grade I came up with the idea for something like this on the ride to school one day. I didn't have the know-how in order to make it happen, so I tossed it aside. A few years later they came out with wireless headphones, and I felt kind of proud for thinking of it before it ever was made.

This has happened to me quite a few times actually. Don't be surprised if in the next few years someone invents a pressure-activated cat bed with a built in heater. I drew up some schematics for it on some notebook paper, but alas am a poor 19 year old with no means to fund this.

I feel like this would be extremely annoying while eating.

From what i read, you can pause the whole thing, but you can't just turn that biting thing off. I might be wrong, but that is what i understood. And i like to listen to music when i eat, so that's a bit problematic.

In theory is decent but in practice... I just can't see it succeeding and most projects on kickstarter that have actually released a product have been well... more advertised than they ever turn out to be.

Theres a few games that got started on kickstarter and they made usually half a million... however when the product was released it was either subpar or far from being that good.

They're a bit naff considering the memory on board these things is 256mb. They'd be good for cheating on a test if they were skin coloured and didn't poke out of your ear, but not for music. And they don't support many filetypes.

If they didn't give a **** about RF radiation then they could easily make a pair of wireless earbuds that could be used on your phone or MP3 player's 3.5mm socket.

But here's what I don't understand; say if everybody bought one of these Splits. What happens if you sit next to somebody on the train wearing another pair of Splits - will there be interference? Will you hear their music instead of yours? Or do each Splits operate on a different radio channel to make that less likely from happening?

i feel like i would lose one and be really annoyed that it wasnt attached by a string to the other one.

Dunno. I´d rather have a normal iPod/MP3 with bigger storage and easier handling. I´ve had my iPod classic for years and I don´t think I´ll ever use another thing if it doesn´t break.
