About Revol Technologies Inc.:
Revol Technologies Inc. (Revols) was co-founded in Montreal in 2014, and the team has been on a revolutionary ride ever since. The idea behind these earphones derived from an endless and frustrating search for the perfect pair of earbuds. Due to the unique nature of our ears, generic earphones and their standard form factor have been an ongoing pain point in the market. For years, listeners have struggled with the size and shape of ordinary earphones which has caused them to feel unwanted pain and pressure, as well as the aggravation of having them fall out often. While custom-fit earphones are an alternative, their high price point and arduous process place them out of reach for the average audio consumer. Compromising on nothing, Revols bring listeners the same comfort and audio benefits as traditional custom-fit earphones while saving them a significant amount of time and money.
One of the most appealing features is the simplicity and accessibility of the Revols customization process. Guided by the Revols companion app, the user simply puts the earphones in and lets the gel-filled tips naturally conform to the unique shapes of their ears. Once they are satisfied with the way the earphones fit and sound, they hit the start button on the app to trigger the molding process. In just 60 seconds, the tips transform from their initial gel-like state, to their permanently hardened customized shape.
In January 2016, Revols earned the title of the largest Canadian crowdfunding campaign of all time. During the 60-day Kickstarter campaign, more than 10,000 units were pre-ordered and over $2.5 million was raised. The success of the campaign was a true testament to the broad appeal of these extraordinary earphones. Since the campaign’s completion, backers from around the world have rallied together in support of this revolutionary technology as they followed the product’s development. The Revols team believes that this crowdfunding success marks the beginning of the earphone revolution. Revols will launch in retail brick & mortar and online stores in 2017 and continue to revolutionize the way in which listeners around the world experience sound.
