A lot of people go through earbuds at the same rate they change clothes. It's difficult to find a pair with good sound and a comfortable fit, so it seems like you try a new set every day.

Let's face it: Earbuds are annoying. If they're cheap, they sound bad. If they're expensive, they sound better, but still fit poorly. If they're custom, it's a hassle to get them. Or is it?

A new company called Revols doesn't want that to be the case, and has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to put end to it. With new technology, Revols is turning a process that usually takes months into something that takes only 60 seconds.

Most of us haven't worn custom-fit earbuds. That's because the process usually involves a visit with an audiologist, plus a special fitting. Then, once your molds have been made, it still takes weeks before your earbuds arrive. With the time and money involved, you're left wondering if it's even worth it.
