You can ask Vinci to make a call, send a text message, set a reminder, or give you directions. No phone is required so you can carry less and workout more.

Whether you are lifting weights, jogging, or cycling, just ask Vinci for your favorite songs, request songs by specific genres or moods, or let Vinci recommend a song for you, 20+ languages supported.

Clear voice recognition with bone conduction mic.

Vinci 2.0 uses a bone conduction mic for crystal clear voice recognition, even in the nosiest environments. This technology is deployed in mission critical situations (military, emergency services) for near-field voice recognition. Ambient noise is filtered out and only the speaker’s voice is collected and amplified. With this technology you can whisper voice commands in a noisy gym or make sensitive calls on a busy street without raising your voice.

Music recommendations based on your preferences and activities.Always learning, always getting smarter.

Vinci 2.0’s AI works on 2 levels. First, it learns from your music listening habits and physical statistics to make intelligent music recommendations. Second, it uses natural language processing (“NLP”) algorithms to recognize your words and understand your intentions. All of this allows Vinci to recommend music that best matches your query, mood, location, and activity.

True gesture control. The easiest way to change your music.

Track a casual run or an intense ride, and share your results with your friends.

Vinci 2.0 has over 10 built-in sensors to accurately analyze your fitness and health data.

Vinci 2.0 is fully integrated with Amazon Alexa, with English (U.S.) English (U.K.), English (India), German and Japanese. Also, we will support google assistant later, which supports 20+ languages including Spanish, French and Italian.

Vinci collaborated with one of the greatest industrial design firm to create the most comfortable and ergonomic fitness headphones. Vinci 2.0’s unique “pentagon” shape is designed to fit perfectly and flexibly around your neck.

Dear Kickstarter backers,

Thanks for your support and understanding! Since 2014, our mission has been to reinvent headphones. Pioneering something no one has done before has been challenging, but you’ve carried us through.

In November 2016, we announced Vinci 1.5 and in just 37 days we raised $987,384 from 4,885 backers and also received 3,446 comments. Thanks to this support, we were able to win top Awards and was featured at NFL Super Bowl LI.

Now we are reinventing headphones again and announce Vinci 2.0 – the First Standalone Smart Sports Headphones, which let you workout without phones and completely hands-free. For the first time, music streaming, calls, and fitness tracking are integrated into a single device.

Our mission will always remain the same – to reinvent headphones. We would love for you to join us on the next chapter of our innovation journey, for Vinci 2.0 and beyond.

The Vinci Team

Experienced team of designers and engineers

Inspero Inc. was founded in 2014 by two MIT Alumni, David and Max. The company’s vision and mission is to completely rethink headphones by inventing a new way to experience — and interact with — sound.The Vinci team now consists of 70 talented and passionate headphone geeks with many years of experience from companies such as Intel, Oracle, and Microsoft, and from universities such as MIT, Harvard, RISD, and Parsons.We are spread across the globe, with offices in New York, San Francisco, Beijing, Bangkok, and Shenzhen. Our main offices are in China; this was a strategic decision to take advantage of China’s robust and ever-innovating supply chain.

From concept to reality

“Vinci” stands for invention. We’ve innovated before, and we’ll innovate again — this time even more radically.

Fine print

International backers: We will ship Vinci worldwide, with the exception of Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Myanmar/Burma, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine, and Yemen. Please note that you will be responsible for duties, fees and taxes applicable to your region, which in the past have ranged from 0% to 20% in the US and EU countries, to as much as 200% for certain South American countries.

Estimated delivery: Each reward tier may have a different estimated shipment month. While we do not expect these to change, the estimated shipment month might shift. We will provide updates if the estimated shipment date changes. At anytime up until your headphone has shipped, you may request a full refund by emailing

Warranty: We stand firmly behind our products. Each Vinci headset includes a 7-day (after you receive it) money back guarantee, 6-month free exchange period, and 1-year limited warranty. Need help? We’re here for you. If you have questions at any time, during or after the campaign has closed, you can always reach us at

Disclaimers notifications: Vinci headphones must be connected to the internet via either WiFi/3G or to a smartphone via Bluetooth in order to receive notifications and perform other functions.

Heart rate monitor: Vinci’s heart rate (HR) monitor is intended to be a valuable tool that provides an accurate estimate of the user’s heart rate. The HR monitor is designed to monitor a user’s heart rate on a periodic basis. The frequency at which heart rate is measured varies and depends on the level of activity of the user. Vinci headphones are not medical devices and you should not rely on the accuracy of the heart rate data for any purpose, especially for medical or health purposes.

Battery life: Actual battery life will vary based in part on cellular network performance, location, and other factors.

3rd party applications: For 3rd party applications that are not native to, or built into Vinci’s operating system — such as Spotify — you must already have an account set up to use these services with your Vinci device. Additional fees and costs may apply to any such services. Use of third party services is subject to these services’ own terms.

Trademarks: Trademarks and names that belong to third parties. Water resistance: Vinci is splash resistant but not waterproof. Incidental exposure to water–like unforeseeable rain–won’t ruin your device, but submerging the device is not recommended.

Risks and challenges

We are currently working hard on software , consolidating production plans and coordinating 3rd party vendors, e.g. international logistics. However, we would still like to inform you of certain risks and challenges. We will try everything possible to minimize risks and challenges to Vinci’s Kickstarter backers.

One of the major benefits of having our business based in China is that we are closer to the source of production and can also be highly selective, working with only the best suppliers and manufacturers. We have teams in New York, San Francisco, Beijing, and Shenzhen, giving us unique oversight and control of the entire supply chain. In particular, our team based in Shenzhen overlooks all factory operations, ensuring both quality and control over the manufacturing process and ensuring that every Vinci component is accurately integrated and optimized.
With our previous comprehensive product and production testing, we wanna deliver our backers a low-risk, high-quality product on time.
