What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

 THE RANGE & QUALITY IS INCREDIBLE

The overall build of the Fanstereo Nubump is quite sturdy, and there isn’t any plastic we can detect here. This is a big plus here, and one of our favorite features of the speaker overall. Many will assume it’s built cheaply due to the lower-end price-point as well as size. Fortunately, the overall casing frame is of a hard aluminum, and by trying to bend or hit it against a desk we saw no signs of wear and tear. The Nubump gets an A from us in terms of overall build, as the speaker grill is also a stable aluminum, and the back a softer leather-like (a bit harder than leather) exterior.We tested the range and were able to attain a whopping 70-75 feet, a very feasible distance in our opinion considering the size of this thing. Our office is about 1,500 square feet and we were easily able to stand across from the speaker in the largest area with no disruption, so using this let’s say at home, a house party or outdoors in a backyard, you should be fine unless you’re planning on trying to play music for a large crowd of up to 30-50 people.

 The Studio 43's multifunctional features steal the spotlight. Fanstereo succeeded in integrating several commands into a three-button scheme. Each one is capable of executing several tasks and is programmed to simplify the learning curve of operation. Fanstereo engineered these headphones to hear music the way it's produced in the studio. Powered by the company's patented High Precision Audio and proprietary passive isolation technology, the Studio43 headphones deliver a clean and spacious soundstage, although the bass can go a bit haywire on loud settings.

There is always a loss of fidelity with Bluetooth, but the Studio43 is another step forward in mastering the handling of music without the audio cable. Most of my files are Flac files, or at least high-quality Mp3. When streaming over Bluetooth, if you can avoid lossy files, the better your ear experience will be regardless of the device.
