Reality Check

  • Claim:

    THE WORLD'S MOST IMMERSIVE 3D EARPHONES FIT FOR YOU

  • Reality:

    A new idea for earphones is exciting news, however, claiming to be the most immersive is bold, as is claiming to make every listening moment as good as being "there" live.

  • Claim:

    iNova VERSUS EVERYONE ELSE

  • Reality:

    According to the Kickstarter Campaign page for Inova, they did a study at Brigham Young University against one other "top name-brand earphone." This comparison test against only one "competitor" makes it tough to say how they would rank against "Everyone Else."

Bottom Line

The innovation of Inova represents the idea of crowdfunding well. It takes an every day common item and attempts to make it better. The claimed patent is linked in the comments section of this campaign to show that it is true. With the uniqueness of the patent and technology, it leaves you to make the decision of taking another risk on another earphone, especially in one of the more saturated markets of tech. Consider that the price may be reasonable, as you contemplate backing an earphone that is patented but in a market with a lot of options.
