Hi! This is Ash, founder of D+I Gear. My daughter received a cochlear implant (CI) when she was two years old. As a human factors engineer and mom to a kiddo with hearing impairment, I have become inspired by CI technology. I also enjoy the many layers of meaning that arise when we pair CIs with the term CHARGE.
CHARGE stands for CHARGE Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that can cause multiple disabilities, including hearing impairment. CHARGE represents the courage and tenacity of people with CHARGE and within the deaf community, regardless of whether or not they elected to receive a CI. Lastly, CHARGE illustrates the proliferation of electronic devices that require...yup...charging on a regular basis...including CIs :)
I worked with graphic designer,Cassandra Velasquez, to develop this fab piece of art, print it on Wrapsody™ headphones, celebrate CIs, and honor all the ways that CHARGE relates.
These wireless headphones really make a statement. Say hello to Wrapsody™ Bluetooth Headphones, equipped with omnidirectional bass, an advanced microphone, and 85% noise cancellation capabilities that deliver high-definition stereo sound. With most CIs sporting Bluetooth capabilities, you can stream from your CI to these dope headphones!
