Founded by a group of technology and startup veterans, Orange County-based Deka launches fully customizable Bluetooth headsets on Indiegogo. The startup is raising $100,000 for this next generation of Bluetooth headsets where you can create & interchange between different custom faceplate designs.

Your Bluetooth should be a reflection of who you are, notes the company. "At Deka, our goal is the growth of self-expression," said Deka CEO & Founder Erik Adams. "As technology enthusiasts, we've found the Bluetooth headset market to be one of the few areas truly lacking in this ability. Deka's headsets break new ground with easy-to-use total customization, and our Indiegogo campaign will help us get to our goals faster."

Deka headsets use a patented slide mechanism to change out covers (known as Deka Slides). The Deka Slide comes as a 3D Printable or Custom Photo image cap for true customizability. Users select the headset cover they want and simply slide it over the earpiece. Currently, Deka Slide styles include a daisy and a skull across a range of colors; further designs will be implemented following the launch.

From a hardware perspective, Deka's headsets feature top-of-the-line technology with HD-quality sound and a clear high-quality microphone. In addition, Deka headsets are durable in a variety of situations, including noise-canceling speakers for crowded rooms and airplanes, along with a waterproof shell for use at the beach or pool. Deka headsets utilize Bluetooth v3.0, have a long battery life, talk time of up to 5 hrs and standby time of up to 150 hrs.

Getting your very own 3D printed Deka Slide created is simple. You take picture or send a file to Deka's design platform. The company will then make it and ship it to you when it is printed. And your options are limitless, thanks to 3D printing technology.

"Deka is launching with a number of stylish designs and colors. But one of our most unique features is the ability to create custom 3D printed headset," said Adams. "These personalized statements are truly a first for the wireless headset industry, and we're proud to lead the way in this innovation."

Early backers can get the Deka Bluetooth headset, Deka 3D Slide and Deka mobile app Free for $48. The estimated delivery time is in January 2014.
