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.

Listens We Can’t Stop Talking About


We talked with our friend Rebecca from House of Pod about their Tribecca Film Festival selection, Guardians of the River. "The audio of this podcast is unlike anything I've ever heard. I love that this show wrestles with deep, important questions of conservation, tourism, ecology, and histories of colonialism. The sound design is rich, the host is brilliant and the story is enriching. To follow this podcast is to be part of a web of relationships with place, animals, humans, plants, history, and the future. What a joy to be part of this project and to share it with others!"


If you could call a number and say you’re sorry, and no one would know…what would you apologize for? This is the story of Allan Bridge, a conceptual artist who concocted The Apology Line during the 1980s in New York City. For well over a decade, you could call a number in Manhattan apologize for everything under the sun from shoplifting to murder. With the "new" technology of answering machines Allan became Mr. Apology, providing solace to anyone with regrets, wrong doings or even criminal acts to get it off their chest and apologize. A confessional of sorts. The only caveat, Allan will broadcast these tapes publicly, so callers were instructed not to include their names. One minor detail... Mr. Apology realized he couldn’t JUST listen. This six-part series is told by a close confidant to Allen and discovers how this multi-year project turns into a defining aspect of Allen's life. Sorry, not sorry for listening to this one.


At the beginning, the two young founders of Juul had the mission to disrupt the tobacco industry by creating a healthier alternative to smoking. What an aspirational goal! Sounds noble, right? Over this six-part series, hear how that mission falls to the wayside as teens become dangerously addicted to their strawberry and bubble gum flavors, sales skyrocket and Washington comes knocking. Host Laura Beil, reporter behind Dr Death and Bad Batch, tells us how it all goes up in smoke and crisis ensues.


We've all gotten spam calls, or as we like to call them, scam calls. "Hello, the warranty on your car is about to expire, please call immediately to extend your warranty." On my 2004 Chevy Tahoe with 200k+ miles and a rusty hood? Sign me up! These calls can be comical, are always annoying, and sometimes give our heart a scare. Who are the people on the other end of these calls, and what makes them tick? In Reply All's two-part series Long Distance, host Alex Goldman follows a wild ride where these phone calls lead to when you play along.

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.
