The Ear Secure Story...
The concept for the Ear Secure device came from my father after years of searching for headphones that would work for him while running. As an engineering student interested in entrepreneurship I decided to take his idea and come up with a solution for earbud fallout.
Over the course of the project we have talked to dozens of runners to get their input and realized that many people have the same problem with earbuds falling out. We started a Facebook page and began inviting people to like our idea collecting over 200 likes within just a couple of months.
We have used the Facebook page to gauge interest and keep people updated on the major milestones of the project. Some of those milestones include meeting dozens of runners at running clubs and events, visiting manufacturing and prototyping businesses, and ordering prototypes.
Our efforts have built up to this point and we finally have a product we are proud of. With your help we are ready go into full production.
What we've done so far:
The first step we took was to get out and talk to some runners. After confirming that the Ear Secure device would address a real and common problem for runners, we drew up some initial designs. We got several different prototypes made and continually tested them by running with them ourselves and loaning them out to other runners. With some initial designs in mind we began visiting manufactures and injection molders. Listening to advice from them and comments from other runners about our prototypes, we came up with a final design.
Where we will go from here:
If our Kickstarter campaign is successful we still have a lot to do. After talking to multiple manufacturers we have decided that all components of the device will be injection molded and we have an injection molder willing to work with us. Once the Kickstarter campaign is completed we will order the components to be made. We will also order shipping supplies at that time. We will do all the assembly by hand as a garage operation and get them ready for shipping. The Ear Secure device should be in your hands in October.
The initial goal for our Kickstarter campaign is to raise enough money to pay for tooling and production of the over the head version of the Ear Secure device. If we are able to raise enough funds through Kickstarter we will be able to offer a variety of colors and possibly a version that goes behind the head as well. Help us reach this goal by telling your friends about us!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Like all Kickstarter projects we collect the money pledged to our project only if we reach our funding goal. This means that if we do not reach our funding goal the Ear Secure device may not be made and delivered. Any help to avoid this circumstance is much appreciated. You can help by backing us and telling your friends and family about our project.
If we are successfully funded it is still possible that we may run into problems during the production and delivery phases. If any delays happen we will be sure to communicate with our backers and work to solve any problems to deliver the products as quickly as possible.
