If you love working out or doing yoga while listening to music you probably have been frustrated by having your headphones fall off or just not feel comfortable while you exercise.
Many people have tried wireless headphones, but even those were not really designed for doing an inverted pose in yoga, or to stay secure and comfortable while you jump rope.
Mark Clayton, who has played professional football for the NFL, experienced broken headsets, lose headsets, and uncomfortable headsets while doing his workouts.
Nothing out there felt like it was really designed to the standards that Mark thought people who work out deserve.
The unique solution?
Mark teamed up with Dale Lott, an expert in audio technology who has worked to create headphones which are sturdy enough for the military. Together they created LIVV headphones, which features a unique headband that disperses the tension over a wider area so it can stay properly attached without causing unnecessary pressure to your ears.
Dale knows audio and pushed the audio quality specifications until the headphones rivaled any of the other well known brands, while Mark pushed the stability and functional part of the design.
In watching the video about LIVV headphones, you are going to be impressed to see people literally doing backflips without having to worry about their headphones falling off. Other active sports such as Yoga, Tennis, and even swimming are also part of the video. It’s really inspiring to watch!
Who are the makers behind LIVV headphones?
In talking with Mark, I found him to be very down to earth and was impressed by his attention to quality. Mark had to go through ups and downs in his professional football career, and he has the same dedication to bringing this product to market.
I could tell that for Mark, LIVV headphones was about delivering a higher standard to people who love music as much as they love working out (while listening to music).
I didn’t speak with Dale on this episode, but plan to have him on Maker Paradise in the future. Mark shared that Dale insisted on providing a higher quality audio experience to customers.
Dale is just as committed to quality in sound as Mark is to making the headphones durable and versatile.
What can we learn from Mark’s experience?
One of the best things that Mark shared was that the first time they tried crowdfunding, it failed. However, they believed in the need, their unique solution, and they had the mindset to support each other and come back. This time, it’s already successful.
Listen to the interview with Mark to hear what he did differently to find success this time.
Mark is very down to earth and speaks openly about the challenges and how to overcome them. You can find the audio player right below the image at the top of the page.
