EarBuds is a company
founded on one simple mission: music matters.

I think I have the best job on Earth. I get to wake up and work with some of the sharpest individuals I’ve ever met. After retiring from the NFL, I wanted to spend time working closely with music and exploring the possibilities around music being social. We have an amazing team, and I’m responsible for leading to ensure we reach our destination: developing EarBuds as a truly social music app.

The Idea


Watching Cam Newton’s warmup, Jason wondered what kind of music he played to gear up for a big win. This memory stayed in Fox’s mind long after he hung up his cleats for good.

After six years playing professional football for the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions, Fort Worth native Jason Fox founded EarBuds, the first social-focused music-sharing platform.

About EArBuds

The Vision

Every livestream is an opportunity to connect and discover new music. Soon you’ll even be able to listen in while pro athletes work out or to the green room warm-up playlist before your favorite band takes the stage. EarBuds lets you get in the moment from wherever you are.


Users can host streams created from playlists they’ve curated in Spotify or Apple Music, and then friends, followers, and new connections can join to listen alongside the host. As a listener, you have the freedom to join and follow users that livestream playlists that fit your tastes.
