Bulky and boring. That's how Bluetooth headsets have been since – well, forever. Entrepreneur Erik Adams wanted to make Bluetooth headsets more stylish and personal, so he founded Deka.
The world's first customizable Bluetooth headset, Deka is on a mission to disrupt the Bluetooh industry. With swappable faceplates, Deka lets you change the look of your Bluetooth headset to match any setting, occasion, and even your outfit. Some of the designs that Deka has created so far include a skull, a daisy, and a basketball, but the possibilities are endless with 3D printing. Moreover, you can send the company your very own design for a faceplate that's uniquely yours.
Deka is more than just a cool-looking gadget, though. Adams and his team are serious about quality and comfort, so they've sought the best hardware and software engineers to build a topnotch product. Deka headsets are equipped with Bluetooth 3.0, a microphone, an HD speaker, a multi-color light visualizer, a sound sensor, and the latest noise cancellation technology. Deka is also coated with Liquipel to protect it from sweat, rain, and accidental drops of water.
To make Deka one of the smartest Bluetooth headsets on the market, Adams and company created an accompanying mobile app to let users get the most out of the product. With the Smart Mobile App, users can find their misplaced Deka headset with the touch of a button; change the light color of the headset base; and set color alert notifications for text messages, voice calls, and emails. In addition, the app allows for hands-free voice activation, so users can answer or ignore calls and carry out other actions without lifting a finger, literally.
Deka is now raising funds on Indiegogo and has raised $13,356 of its $100,000 goal as of this writing. Early birds can get their own Deka Bluetooth headset for $48.
