comfortable headphones through mindful design

As heavy listeners of podcasts, audiobooks, long-form content, the spoken word, and never-ending Zoom calls, we wanted comfortable headphones that could be worn continually and securely while delivering incredible clarity of sound.

After four years of innovation, we have developed the Buderflys' Curiosity Wireless earbuds.

Our Listening Ritual

A Collection of our Tribe's Favorite Podcasts

Listens We Can’t Stop Talking About


What do 415 coffins, 3 bottles of Joy, 23 teachers, a $25 tip and 12 million Thank You meals all have in common? The pandemic. In this episode of This American Life, guest host Chana Joffe-Walt talks with a varied collection of essential workers and how they managed to feel less alone during the darkest days of COVID. From a school carpenter in New York, to a manager at a McDonalds in Michigan and early childhood educators - the pandemic forced jobs to change, and what none of us noticed was that the workers changed too. These are the stories of moments unseen.


Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! No Place Like Home follows the wild story behind the biggest heist that ever hit Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Hint: It has to do with some fancy footwear. Hosts Ariel Ramchandani and Seyward Darby bring you into the world of Hollywood memorabilia and the market for lost and stolen art. Plus a crash course in all things Judy Garland, so plan on winning trivia night when she is the category. This 8-part series will beg the question; is there a movie prop you would risk stealing?


When it comes to content about Mt. Everest or K2, we eat it up with a spoon. We all know the feeling of not being able to put down Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air, hanging on every word with an overwhelming need to soak up every detail of a mountain that takes no prisoners. While listening to Against the Odds, K2: The Savage Mountain, we noticed the exact feeling taking over. This 4-part series hosted by Mike Corey and Cassie De Pecol chronicles the tragic run for the K2 Summit in 2008. Seasoned hikers from around the world embarked on a bucket list adventure that is stymied by unpredictable weather, summit fever and bad communication. This tale is told with an all time high intensity. We threw off our buds thinking we can't listen anymore, only to jump right back in after a few deep breaths. K2 is the grave for a staggering one out of four people. So we ask you, would you play those odds?


This week, we talked with our friends over at Truth + Media about their new show - Truth + Tribe with Mike Sarraille, a 20-year military veteran with the US Navy SEALs and member of the U.S. Marine Corps. Can we just say, we really like this Mike guy! His mission is to teach us how to balance achievement and happiness. And isn't that exactly what we're all seeking? He gets to the heart of powerful stories that change lives and the perseverance that breeds positivity through everyday living. Truth + Tribe is a glimpse into military life, how events shape Everyday Warriors as well as the importance of finding your tribe. In the debut episode, Mike is joined by his brother and retired Navy Seal, Dan Luna. It's humbling to listen to these two bada** guys, talk about the events that have shaped who they are today. It puts the challenges in our lives into perspective and really morphs the "don't cry over spilled milk" adage into "how are you going to use that spilled milk to grow and better your life?" After listening to this show, you'll ask yourself - How do I become an everyday warrior and who is my tribe to help me get there?

BLOG

Corona Virus and quarantine was one thing, but now that I’m being forced to confront my own privilege as well as police brutality and racial injustice, I don’t feel like I have the skills or tools or language to properly or responsibly engage in the huge discussions that are necessarily occurring right now.

FOUNDER'S NOTE

The Buderflys journey started one day in 2015 on the ski slopes in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. While I love music and have enjoyed an amazing career in the music industry, you can usually find me listening to podcasts or audiobooks – even when I ski or run marathons.
