Volant – The Revolution of Headphones is Here!

Volant Headphone

In the rapidly changing world of technology, gadgets with multiple uses have become all the rage. To bring the goodness of headset, Volant Sound has brought Volant – world’s first 3-in-1 headphones to Kickstarter. A set of so-called hybrid headphones that promises groundbreaking innovation. It allows users to seamlessly switch between earphones, headphones and wireless listening in one simple step. Volant Sound is redesigning the standard headphones with this three-in-one concept in which consumers get to have a pair of In-Ear, Over-Ear and Wireless Over-Ear headphones all in one set.

The device is fitted into its headphone body thus transforming it into a pair of headphones and in the form of wireless connectivity, which apparently they consider being its third form. The wired pair of earbuds can also be plugged into the bigger cans for a proprietary wired solution.

Grandiose Design

Additionally, it has passive noise canceling feature that provides the same functionality clearing all the noises while connecting to the headphone shell. Thus it isolates the external noise to ensure an uninterrupted experience to their users.
