Aiming to free you up from pesky cordage, EarTop Flow is an after-market bluetooth gizmo that attaches to headphones for wireless streaming. The device, currently fitted for Bose and Beats by Dre headphones, utilizes advanced Bluetooth 2.1, EDR and APTX technologies for high fidelity feeds with a 30-foot range. A practical design allows plug-and-play via a 3.5mm jack while the lightweight body floats externally.

A touch control system allows you to manually manage your music as well as interrupt playback to take calls through the headphones, and a full charge will deliver 12 hours of uninterrupted, studio-quality sound. The concept was developed by CEO Ketan Rahangdale, a former deejay who was looking for a low-cost option for bluetooth streaming. EarTop Flow technology also has potential applications in cars, home stereos and anywhere 3.5mm jacks are used—which is practically everywhere.

For now, EarTop Flow can be pre-ordered for $50 as part of the company's Kickstarter campaign.
