About this project

Magtii
Magtii

Magtii is a tiny accessory piece, aiming to stabilize your apple earphones in your ears, allowing you to freely enjoy your music while walking, dancing, even doing sports.  

FREE your movement.

Talk about earphones  

It's pretty common that earphones easily fall out from our ears and this continuous earphones loosing at some point becomes a great inconvienience.

Easy to set-up
Easy to set-up

For example, when we are running and listening to the music, we always have to put our earphones back on for its continuous fall-off; when we are riding the bike with music on, we have to keep re-wearing our earphones; even during our daily body movement, our earphones may fall down. No one will ever say that it's not a problem.

Once we put on earphones, we have to be cautious and our movements have to become restricted. Earphones bring so much joy as well as trouble. What a pity!

Magtii is to improve the problem  

The Perfect Matching of Your Ears and EarPods with the Help of Magtii

While wearing Magtii, EarPods will be in our ear canal steadily so we won't have to worry about loosing them anymore. This comfort of wearing Magtii is not only for doing sports, but also for any single moment of our lives.

 

In almost a year, we made detailed researches. We found that due to the fixed size of EarPods, for there was still some space left between ear canal and EarPods when many users were wearing EarPods. It is the remaining space that causes the constant fall-off the earphones. When we found out the problem, we began to work on a solution. At first, we put the AB glue into the remaining space. After adding the AB glue, EarPods got relatively stable.. 

Afterward, when the glue took shape, we made a 3D scan of it. In this way, we collected data of different ear canals among group 200 people. After collecting and analyzing the data, we designed an ergonomic product suitable for everyone.

Magtii adopts Durable Layered Materials combing strength, toughness and flexibility. The black part is made of soft material while the white part is made of hard plastic. Owing to Magtii, EarPods has no space to move, which makes EarPods fit better in the ear canal. Because of the soft material, Magtii can fit any ear shape and we will offer three sizes to satisfy everyone.

Each pack of Magtii has three sizes and every size can be slightly adjusted on the EarPods. The soft materials of the black part allow Magtii to change its ergonomical shape to fit your ear canals. In this way Magtii can perfectly fit so your ears and EarPods will have a perfect matching. Magtii has three sizes : L/M/S and every pack of Magtii includes all three of them.

 This version will be available only if the number of backers reaches at least 500 (Minimum). We have to persuade the factory to help us all. If we don't reach the min. number, we will refund you via PayPal.

 

 It is exciting for us to design an accessory to make EarPods comfortable instead of abandoning them because of their imperfection. Now our whole project is finally ready and we hope that we can receive more orders through crowdfunding. In this way, we can reduce the unit production cost to reach a reasonable price. We need your support and promotion to make the mass production of Magtii possible.

Magtii is simple, useful and convenient, it will give a better expierience for everyday earphone users. Our project is reaching finalsation and now we are looking for global co-partners. If you want to order wholesale or become a distributor of Magtii please contact us through: brandon@uono.co

Schedule

We will begin mass production once we complete crowdfunding, and we predict that we will send first products in June. Our experience tells us that various unexpected things might happen from the moment of design till the final production. Therefore, in order to ensure a perfect product, we have had all kinds of tests, which include the materials tests, mould tests, color tests, and so on. Here we should point out that our materials apply TPE and PC which are both safe to your health and you need to pay attention to it if you are allergic to TPE.

 

UONO Design studio is a young team based in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. The soul of UONO is “reflection on design”, which is also our concept. The concept of UONO is that every product will be designed through rational consideration and every new design will maintain initial determination.

This is not our first time to launch a project on Kickstarter. Our first project is GTEAR, which is welcomed by many friends. It is also the first-generation of Magtii. Here are some of their comments. 

 

 

 

 

 

Though Magtii is very simple, it can satisfy our demand. Magtii is an accessory which can prevent your EarPods falling out, thus making your music expierience just perfect.

Before starting this project, I asked myself a simple question: how can I improve the issue of falling out EarPods? Should I buy another more steady earphone?  

NO! The Apple Inc. has provided me with several Earpods and I can not just throw them away. We change our electronic products frequently, which is bringing harm to our planet.

According to the report of UN studies, the world manufacturing electronic garbage is pilling up, which is 41.8 million tons last year, but only 15% is recyclable, that is only 6.5 million out of more than 40 tons!  

The number of electronic waste around the world will rise by 20% in 2018, that is 50 million tons which is due to increase electronic equipment sales and shorten life of the electronic products.  

The quick development and update of electronic products cause them having a short lifespan. And because they are hard-to-recycle it's threatening our environment - but it is impossible to stop the development. The following ways are some possible solutions to minimize the problem.

Risks and challenges

We’re so passionate about this project that we’re committed to doing everything in our power to solve any challenge that may arise along the way – that’s a promise!

Here are a few risks and challenges that we can think of:

Product Manufacturing Delays
• We’ve produced a small run of samples and we feel confident that a large production order will be successful; however, it is common that factories can have unforeseen setbacks.
• We plan to stay in constant communication with our manufacturer including working on-site to resolve any challenges that may arise.

Shipping Delays
• Shipping a large number of products at once can be a daunting task for a small team.
• To help us with this challenge, we’ve segmented the shipping process into groups.
• Early birds will get their products first. Regular orders will get their products second. All other orders will be processed as soon as possible after the Kickstarter orders have been sent out.

Lost Packages
• We’ve had some experience shipping products internationally, including lost packages.
• Even if it means sending out a product three times, we are committed to make sure it gets into your hands.
