Premium Sound

We started with sound. Most retractable headsets on the market use the cheapest components possible. We didn’t. We listened to countless drivers and custom tuned to deliver premium sound quality, both for music and taking a call. We added an inline omni-directional noise reduction mic with crystal clear performance so your caller hears you, not your environment.

Premium Construction

Next step was the housing. Again, premium was our mantra. We designed our retraction mechanism from the ground up using high quality parts allowing the extraction and retraction of cords to be smooth. Then we encased everything in an Apple quality aluminum case that is as beautiful as it is durable. Earbuds and 3.5mm jack all nest seamlessly into the chassis with a single push of the machined retraction button. Toss it in your bag or clip it to your pocket using the heavy-duty clip we’ve added to the back of the case.

We engineered SPIN from the ground up. Our patent pending design features a dual spindle for independent action of the headphones or 3.5mm jack. Most retractors on the market use one spindle that requires both the headset and 3.5mm jack to be extended at the same time or more tangle happens. SPIN is constructed using separate cables for both the headphones and 3.5mm jack. They are wired and secured onto their own spindles, with the connections transferring sound via gold spring contacts and a PCB that keep your call or music seamlessly sounding great and connected while retracting or locked in place.

Specifications

We were inspired by the Apple headphone case size and shape (not the ease of cable management). The size is driven primarily by the overall length of the cables but through an iterative engineering approach, we were able to get all the components, cables and housing down to the smallest size without sacrificing durability. We are slightly larger than our goal of the Apple headphone case by only a few millimeters and expect the weight to be around 80g.
