Wilfredo Cruz, a Class Action lawsuit plaintiff from Texas, claims that he and several other Classes of consumers were intentionally swindled by Kanoa, Inc. when defendant Kanoa Inc took advance orders for an unknown series of Bluetooth headphones, then immediately canceled those orders a few months later without providing any refunds or to the customers. Also named as a direct defendants in this Kanoa Class Action lawsuit are Kanoa CEO, Civil Barten van der Lubbe, and his son, Marco Barten. The suit further claims that the three executives and owners of the company, together, knew or should have known that the products they ordered were defective. Among other things, plaintiffs contend that Kanoa marketed its products as high-tech headphones that rivaled the top brands in the market and advertised that their products were advanced enough to work well with busy lifestyles. When the products didn’t live up to expectations, Kanoa could hardly be bothered to offer refunds or return the products.

Plaintiffs further charge that Kanoa, Inc. knew or should have known that it was deeply in debt at the time it took a series of financial maneuvers to cease the development of the original Bluetooth headphones.

The crux of the matter rests on a document dated May 8, 2021, which stated that Kanoa intended to stop the production of its products six months earlier. The document further stipulated that the company planned to replace its existing line of headsets with new ones, which would be sold at prices higher than the previously announced discounts. After this document was the “cease development of the Bluetooth headphone,” which was never mentioned or contained any express mention of the pending production of new Bluetooth headsets.

The original Bluetooth headsets, which plaintiffs charge were defective, did not incorporate a hands-free technology. When the company offered discounts for the devices, it only included the discount price without any mention of the Hands-free functionality. Kanoa also did not provide any guarantee, warranty, or support for its consumers. As a result, class-action lawsuit plaintiffs argue that Kanoa’s actions, or inaction, proximately caused them to incur substantial damages that they will not be able to recover unless they file a Kanoa Class Action Lawsuit.

The most prominent figure involved in the case is Todd M. Friedman, a Class Action Lawyer with law offices located in San Francisco, California.

On October 5, Friedman filed a complaint against Kanoa, Inc. in the U.S. District Court, asking the court to compel Kanoa to cease the development of the C.P.R.E. earbud headphones. According to Friedman, once Kanoa failed to comply with his complaint, he was forced to file a Class Action Lawsuit against Kanoa on behalf of the class-action lawsuit plaintiffs.

The complaint against Kanoa focuses on two separate but interconnected points. First, according to the complaint, Kanoa negligently marketed and sold C.P.R.E. earbuds that included a defective microphone. Once the C.P.R.E. earbud headphones were sold, many class members who purchased these earbuds failed to notice that the microphone included a microphone that could cause many disturbing occurrences.

Second, the complaint further contends that Kanoa did not incorporate warnings about the risks of listening to the earbuds. Class members who use the C.P.R.E. earbud headphones at certain places or hours may develop tinnitus, a constant ringing or buzzing in the ears. This constant ringing or buzzing can often interfere with the enjoyment of certain activities, including sleeping and relaxing, which is the basis of the Class Action Lawsuit.
