Wearhaus Arc Headphones Make Private Listening a Social Experience

I’m an introvert through and through. I might even go so far as to say I’m a bit anti-social. I like to live in my own little bubble and, as cheesy as it may sound, headphones play a big part in that. I’m still rocking the Rosewill Sonas that I reviewed back in April and I really like to slap them on and shut out the world. But what if headphones could provide both a private and communal experience?

Wearhaus is looking to do just that with the Wearhaus Arc, a pair of bluetooth-equipped headphones designed to share music with those around you. Say you put on Wearhaus Arc headphones, fire up the accompanying mobile app, and set up your channel. If anyone in the vicinity is wearing another pair of the Wearhaus headphones, they can join your channel and listen to whatever you’re listening to. You’ll still be experiencing your music solo, but others will be experiencing it, too. To top it off, the outer ring of each earcup is equipped with an LED light ring and everyone listening to your channel will be glowing the same color.

The app is optional; you can also control everything via the surface of the right earcup. You aren’t limited to music either. There’s also chat functionality. The music broadcasting is effective up to 65 feet indoors and 100 feet outdoors. Wearhaus recently took to Kickstart to raise the final funds needed for production, which they’ve already done. Check out the video below to learn all about social listening.
