The idea of wireless headphones is quickly picking up steam amongst consumers, however the often average battery life has effectively held back the notion of totally ditching the cord. Start-up EXOD looks to eliminate the issue of juice through the realization of a solar-powered set of wireless headphones called the HELIOS. On the top of the headphone’s band is a photovoltaic film which draws power from the sun’s rays and can operate regardless of the availability of visual sunlight meaning cloud cover will not be an issue. An hour of solar charging results in 15 hours of listening. Much like the current offerings on the market, the EXOD HELIOS features Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity with the ability to take and receive calls with ease. Head over EXOD’s Kickstarter to support the project which currently has a ways to go to reach their goal of £50,000 GBP over the next 35 days but if successful, will hit the market in June of 2015.
