How the heck did the t096z beat out all other in-ear headphones?


“Innovation is the name of the game when it comes to Kickstarter projects, and Torque’s gambit isn’t any different. For the t096z in-ears, that means 9mm bio-cell diaphragms and six interchangeable valves that are designed to enhance the musical elements based on whatever genre you’re listening to. The good news is that no matter which valve you use, your music sounds great.” – Reviewed.com

  • The Torque t096z is better than 98% of the headphones we tested.

Kickstarter Stretch Goals!


We’re partnering with our good friends at Downbeats for our Kickstarter stretch goal! Once we hit $50k, we’re going to give every pledge over $70, a free set!! This retails for $14 so this is an amazing deal for everyone who cares about their ears’ health. We found this to be a perfect stretch goal as we’ve always preached the safety of headphone use. Next time you rock out at a concert, use these to avoid the “Sonic Hangover”. Your ears with thank you for it! For more info on Downbeats, check out:http://downbeats.com/
