On Mute is an adapter for your headphones, designed to improve your conference call experience by giving you continuous and immediate control of your microphone. It allows you to instantly mute your headset’s microphone with the flick of a switch, without even having to take your phone out of your pocket.
Its small size and versatility mean it will seamlessly become an extension of your headphones.
We Made On Mute To Solve These Common Issues
On Mute works with any 3.5mm headset and any headphone port. We have been testing On Mute extensively with different makes and models of phones, tablets, computers and headsets. It was not easy, but we managed to make a product that allows you to mute your call without adding any additional noise.
See how easy it is to use On Mute below:
Keep your hands free and take calls from anywhere! You don't need to see your phone to mute it anymore -- you can multitask without fear of being caught on guard!
We're a small team with diverse backgrounds in consulting, management and engineering. We’ve collectively spent thousands of hours on calls, and became fed up with the usual annoyance of conference calls: background noise, accidental hang ups, issues muting and unmuting microphones and more. Tired of constantly fumbling for our phones while on calls we came together to come up with a solution. After a few weeks of design and testing, the first On Mute prototype was born.
After further refining and real world testing we are ready to launch this campaign and get your support to scale our manufacturing and end conference call bingo.
BNE Design is a small company based out of NYC, we believe in the power of design to improve every aspect of our lives.
We appreciate your support and a very special thank you to everyone that has helped us along the way with support, advice, and feedback!
Risks and challenges
Any new product has risks, however, we have taken time to test, review and improve our product multiple times the past few months. We have been successfully using prototype devices ourselves for real world testing. While we have made minor changes to the production unit these are superficial and should not have any impact on the functionality or quality of the device.
To reduce manufacturing risks, we are working with trusted partners to ensure the highest quality build and quality control. We could face delays scaling up our manufacturing and logistics, but have been in discussion with our factory and partners to plan for all scenarios.
While we do not expect other major setbacks or delays, we are ready for them should they arise. We will work tirelessly to correct any situation that does come up and provide backers with frequent updates on our progress.
Lastly, we have successfully tested the device with many popular smartphones, laptops and headphones, but it is possible one may exist.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
