About

What if you could make your standard earphones fully waterproof & your mp3 player water resistant ?

One of the main factors in sports and fitness is the protection of your electronic devices which is what bebop umbrella does in easy DIY steps.

Using bebop umbrella you can fully waterproof your earbuds & add water resistance to your mp3 player using nanotechnology protection which is 60,000 times thinner than a human hair. It's electronic friendly with no effect on performance and causes no damage to your buds or mp3 player.

:: Earbuds

I know many of you reading this have lost earbuds to water damage, sweat is the main culprit in damaging your earbuds. The sweat that creeps inside the buds is as strong as sea salt, it eats away the components and connectors inside. This usually starts your buds to give that crackling sound and it will then eventually sever the connections as they corrode which means no sound. 

:: mp3 players

Using bebop umbrella on the ports, head jack and full exterior of your mp3 player it will offer high water resistance from sweat, rain, water, drinks, wet pockets, damp bags & towels, moisture, humidity which means no more dead mp3 players !

:: Benefits

  • Lap Swimming (ear buds only)
  • Working Out
  • Running
  • Cycling
  • Hiking
  • Marine
  • Bad weather conditions.
  • Accidental mishaps
 

How do you apply it.

earbuds - Dip in the liquid for 5-6 mins leave to dry - Job done !


mp3 players - wipe the exterior with the same liquid, on the body, screen and use the Q tip to coat the headphone jack, charging ports and buttons - Job done !

We will release an in-depth video on how to apply Bebop Umbrella and full instructions will be included in the box, the process is very simple, nothing needs to be taken apart.

Why I need your support

I have a fairly basic setup at home and I need to buy some more modern equipment and bulk chemicals to make this product commercially viable and permanently lease some Lab space. If I reach my goal and get extra funding I would like to apply for a Worldwide patent to protect it from being copied and invest in further developments of useful products using Nanotechnology coatings.

Q & A 

(any other common questions I will add as we go along)

Q : Can the mp3 players be submerged under water after coating?
A : No it just adds water resistance to your mp3 player.

Q : Can the earbuds be submerged under water after coating?
A : Yes, it's a fully waterproof, for swimming, any other water sports and working out.

Q : How long does it last for ?
A : It's permanent and will last a life time.

Q : Is there any technical & safety documentation for the product ?
A : Yes, all documentation will be sent with your kits, this is all required by law and postal services. It will come with a safety data sheet and CE conformity certificate. The product can be shipped freely throughout the world without any problems.

Q : Can this product be used for other electronics?
A : It been designed for earbuds & mp3 players ONLY, it's not been tested with other electronics as there are many different components on a electronic board, so without testing each component for it's reaction it's impossible to see the long term effects & results. If you do decide to do your own tests then it's at your own risk and I would not recommend it unless it's a surplus device you don't want.

Risks and challenges

We don't foresee any problems with the project, the product is already developed, prices have been made very carefully according to our costs.
