Bluewire Audio Teams up with Springfield Spring on Latest Design Modification

Springfield Spring (www.springfieldspring.com)
The selection of Springfield Spring, a New England company, also represents a conscious effort to involve as many regional businesses as possible. In addition to work on the original prototype with Empire Prototype Development and Ideology Product Development, both located in Attleboro, Mass., Bluewire Audio has worked extensively with NewTek Design Group, based in West Boylston, Mass., Electro-Prep, Inc. in Wareham, Mass., and Pilgrim Innovative Plastics in Plymouth, Mass.
Bluewire Audio's speakers are mounted on the outside of a cap or visor, where they direct audio towards the wearer's ear. Without being too loud to disturb other people in the surrounding area, the small speakers allow the wearer to listen to music or other audio without needing to fumble with earbuds or wires. More importantly, they also preserve ambient sound, eliminating the safety concerns when conventional earbuds or headphones are used during outdoor activities.
"We are always excited to work with start-ups to help make their good ideas into reality," said Norm Rodriques, owner of Springfield Spring. "Bluewire Audio's product is exciting, and we're glad to be a part of the process."
"This new phase represents two things about our business," said Bluewire Audio CEO Emily Proos. "One, we are committed to working with as many local and regional businesses as possible. Two, as a start-up, we are reminded that we need to be adaptable and listen to our customers. We've had an enthusiastic response confirming the need for a product that allows runners to listen to music safely and with less distraction, but people want to be able to use it with their own favorite hat. This new design will allow that!"
About Bluewire Audio LLC
Bluewire Audio LLC is a start-up founded by anesthesiologist Andy Proos and his daughter Emily, who is a recent graduate of Babson College with a bachelor's degree in business administration. The company is based on their idea for a speaker system that is mounted on the band of a hat or visor, allowing the wearer to listen to audio while engaged in physical activity without the inconvenience of wires and earbuds that can be distracting and require continual readjustment. It also allows the user to hear ambient sound, addressing the safety concerns when conventional earbuds and headphones that feature noise-canceling technology are used in active settings.
