Wearhaus Arc wearers can sync up so that they can listen to the same music together.

To listen to the same music with your friends at the same time, you either turn up the volume, split a pair of earbuds or use an earphone splitter.

Tech startup Wearhaus wants to make music sharing easier and more seamless with its new wireless headphones, the Wearhaus Arc, which can sync with other pairs so wearers can listen to the same music together.

The Wearhaus Arc works with an iOS and Android app, which lets users see what other people around them are listening to, join them if they want, and even broadcast their own playlist. The app lets Arc wearers control how they share their music or sync with others. They can still listen to music even without the app since it works on top of any other app that’s playing audio. The app also lets users customize the color and brightness of the light ring on the headphones, as well as set the backlights to sync with friends, pulse in tune with the music, or turn off completely.

The wireless headphones are available in two base colors, black and white, and is made of matte polycarbonate plastic with memory foam cushions and an adjustable headband to allow for a snug and comfortable fit. The headphones feature intuitive touch controls and can sync via Bluetooth with other pairs within a 30-meter range. According to the creators, the design of the device is rated for at least 30 simultaneous users and they have tested up to six listeners in person.

The Wearhaus Arc can play 16 hours of audio or about 10 hours while sharing. Each pair of Arc headphones comes with a USB charging and AUX cable.

The startup was founded by former University of California, Berkeley students Nelson Zhang and Richie Zeng. Both dropped out of the university to focus on the startup and Zhang was awarded a Thiel Fellowship. The two began working on the Arc at the Highway1 accelerator.

Wearhaus is currently running a crowdfunding campaign for the wireless headphones on their website. Those interested in buying a pair can pre-order one for $150, which is 50 bucks less than the future retail price of the product. People can also opt for the couple’s pack, which costs $250. Estimated delivery of the headphones is in December.
