Kyle Kirkpatrick is a fitness professional and avid mobile device user living the active Colorado lifestyle. But he was fed up with headphones on the market because they wouldn’t stay in, sounded awful or hurt his ears.
“One day I decided I couldn’t take it anymore,” he said. “I wasn’t going to tolerate crappy headphones any longer. I decided to drop some serious cash on a pair of headphones that actually worked for the wide variety of sports I enjoy, from snowboarding and skating to gymnastics and distance running.
“There was only one problem. They didn’t exist.”
After weeks of searching, Kyle couldn’t find one pair of headphones that would stay put and wouldn’t hurt. So he decided to create an affordable, comfortable and snug-fitting headphone.
“The human ear is incredibly diverse; in fact, our ears are as unique as our fingerprints,” Kyle said. “I found the only way to create earphones that fit well is to mold them to the exact shape of the ear. Some custom earphone products were already available, but the $300 to $2,000 price tag was just unacceptable.”
Kyle consulted audio engineers, material specialists and high-level athletes to develop and test many designs, formulas and prototypes to create the headphones that he believes athletes are looking for.
“I can honestly say Decibullz are the best earphones I have ever had, and I’m really excited to share them with the world.”
