Who is Orellio?
Orellio is a start-up brand with a single mission to create a range of products that Stop earbud Fall-Out.
Like many ideas Orellio was born from the need to solve a problem. Having spent to many years frustrated with earbuds falling out I looked into solving the issue myself. Having tried many products, nothing I found worked well enough. The game changer for me came when Apple launched the AirPod. The cord had gone, removing the snagging issue that pulled the earbuds out, but unfortunately my Airpods still fell out too often. AirPods are expensive and with two kids keen to use them, the idea of losing or destroying them was now a concern too. From this, Orellio’s first product, the PodLatch was born. We are really pleased that the creative effort behind the PodLatch means we now have patent pending status on the design.
The PodLatch concept came to me while taking part in a Parkrun near London. I have no background in product design, so I set about finding people who could help me realise the product and who also understood the frustrations of earbud fallout. After some research and lucky networking, the team of Jonathan, Tom, Milton, Shosannah and Simon came to be. The design focus was on style, comfort, performance and great value for money. The result I am proud to say is the PodLatch.
Why create PodLatch?
Apple make excellent AirPods but they can still come loose or drop out whilst we are active. Enjoying your favourite tunes as you run or working out or simply during the daily commute, is bliss. PodLatch is the super reliable and comfortable way to prevent AirPod fall-out.
Orellio has no ties to Apple, but we chose to develop PodLatch-Air around the Apple AirPod. If you haven’t gone for the AirPods yet, we have a version for the corded Apple EarPods named the PodLatch-Original. Development is underway to cater for other major brands of earbuds soon.
What was our brief?
As we embarked on our mission, we got a lot of feedback from friends, family and sporty people about what they needed from the PodLatch. We shortlisted the key features they wanted; they needed to be comfortable, easy to use, not get in the way hats and glasses, as well as being inexpensive and hygienic. We set about creating the PodLatch to bring together all the elements into the final design.
