LOOKING BACK AT CES 2017

Earlier this month at CES 2017, we showcased our latest designs, as well as introducing new products we’ve been working on in the past year, giving visitors a glimpse of what we’ll be rolling out in the coming months. In case you weren’t with us in Vegas, here’s how it went down: 

We introduced brand spanking new prototypes for future products; both Mufflers and Wireless Headphones. They offer outstanding protection in noisy situations with sound reduction that will let kids sit comfortably through concerts, fireworks displays, festivals, and sporting events, and also help them stay focused when studying and in school. The Mufflers are strong and sturdy enough for active little tikes, yet comfy with a pillow soft, snug fit to ensure the best possible comfort for hours of wear. The Wireless Headphones will give you all the terrific features of BuddyPhones, with wireless freedom. The headphones are connected through Bluetooth and have an impressive battery lifetime. With our new wireless range we aim to give kids the best sound ever heard in volume-limiting headphones! We received great feedback on our prototypes at CES, both from old customers, as well as potential ones, which makes us all the more excited to launch them later this year.

We received great feedback on our booth at CES this year, but our key theme was keeping it functional and inviting. It was important to us to keep the setup of our booth in a way that allowed visitors to stroll through, view our products and chat with one of our team members to learn more, while giving us the opportunity to have more than one meeting at a time with partners and prospective clients. Our visitors were diverse and we were delighted to connect with people from all over the world. The media took great notice of BuddyPhones and we had a chance to meet with journalists from across the globe for interviews, as well as to do a live interview, which was broadcast at the Media Tower in North Hall during CES.

The highlight for us at CES this year was receiving the CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree for BuddyPhones InFlight. Products chosen for this prestigious award reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most cutting-edge tech products coming to market. It’s truly an honor to have received such an important award. We are earnestly grateful for the recognition BuddyPhones have received, and it is safe to say they gathered much attention at the Innovation Awards Showcase at the Venetian in Las Vegas. We would like to take the opportunity and thank all our partners, customers, parents and kids around the world, for choosing BuddyPhones and helping us reach the stage where we can proudly hold up this award as a mark of our achievements.

We are excited for the future and strive to only get better at what we do, making reliable quality products and protect kids’ hearing. Our next appearance will be at the New York Toy Fair, and we look forward to meet with retailers in the toy and youth entertainment industry there on February 18-21, you can pay us a visit at level 3, booth #1875. You’ll also find us at the Hong Kong Electronic Show, April 13-16 where we’ll be showing all our latest products and designs. We look forward to making the most of upcoming events to strengthen the bonds with longtime partners as well as introducing our products to new contacts. We look forward to seeing you in the future, as well as staying in touch to keep you updated on further news of release dates for our new products.
