About the Project

It can be difficult trying to carve out a little time in the day just for you. Where you might enjoy a book or podcast? How about at night, in that drowsy state before you fall asleep in bed? Pop in your Nightbudd and escape for a while in the comfort of your own bed. With Bluetooth connectivity built into a single comfortable headphone, Nightbudd gives you a pleasant night-time listening experience while remaining tangle free of any cables. The benefit of only having to occupy one ear, means you are free to sleep on your side, back or front while at the same time keeping your other ear free.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Affordable

  • Reality:

    The early bird price around $21 is supportive of the affordable claim. However, there are many comparable products in a similar price range.

Something To Think About

Nightbudd only provides 1 wireless headphone and it is designed specifically for audio books, podcasts, and lectures. This is definitely worth considering as backing this project is contemplated.

  • Claim:

    Comfortable

  • Reality:

    The small size and light weight pairs well with the wireless function to create a foundation of possible comfort. However, in bed, a lower profile could be more comfortable, and comfort in general for the headphone market is a tricky field to navigate.

  • Claim:

    Easy to use

  • Reality:

    Minimal style and ease of use is possible.

  • Claim:

    Simple

  • Reality:

    From design to function, the Nightbudd caters to the claim of simplicity.

Bottom Line

Nightbudd is an interesting idea, giving attention to the growing podcast advocates. Be aware, that it is only a one ear product and is not designed for music or for dual ear use. Kevin, the founder, is very transparent in his descriptions and comments on Kickstarter, which is something that is always respected.
