Sassan Sirot started the development of Knockdown Earbuds after experiencing the lack of stability and comfort of standardized in-ear devices during training first-hand. Continuous readjustment of in-ear devices is not only frustrating but also has the potential to significantly decrease training efficiency and effectiveness. Each earbud is 3D printed to the precise measurements of each individuals’ ear to offer the best fit possible.
We are athletes, business analysts, developers & technologists driven by our passion to make things better. Utilizing our skills and experience to build our custom fit 3D printed wireless earbuds to enhance any workout experience.
Knockdown LLC is a US based startup with the goal of providing athletes, even those affected by cauliflower ears, with custom fit true wireless earbuds.
