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.

A waterproof bluetooth headset with a built in mp3(stores up to 8GB) and FM player. 

INTRO

With its own internal 8GB system, you can amplify your workouts by listening to music you choose.

Manage your playlists using our proprietary app that can be found on both the Apple and Android store.

or Connect Tayogo AMP to your mobile phone and feed in(via bluetooth) your iTunes, Spotify, or other music Apps as well as answer phone calls.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

We're interested in spending money on the product development, not on advertising.  WITH YOUR SUPPORT, we can pass those SAVINGS on to you! We also want to continue to develop the product, and kickstarter will allow us to connect to YOU, our audience so we can have an active dialogue and update you on our latest developments.

FEATURES:

Waterproof:

Sweat or swim as much as you want!  Because our patented designed headphones meet a superior IPX 8 waterproofing standard which means it can continuously remain submerged under water up to 3 meters for up to 5 hours. 

Comfort:

The AMP is completely coated in a soft, skin-like silicone.

Compact 3-part design:

A built in USB connector plugs directly into your computer to charge or download files easily.  No need to carry around an additional cord!

Risks and challenges

We're a small company, but we've been in the electronics business for over 10 years now and we're not going anywhere. We don't have huge budgets, but we have passion and love what we do. We'll try our best to deliver an amazing product at an affordable price.

If you are looking for a pair of headphones to swim with, or exercise with so you can listen to music at an affordable price, definitely buy our product. We think you'll be pleased.

But, this device will not solve all your problems. There will be times you may want plug in headphones. While it does answer calls and handles them well, it's also not for somebody who does a lot of talking on the phone. There are headsets specifically designed for that purpose and we want you to choose those products if that is what you are looking for.

The headsets should also be handled with care. They are waterproof and fairly durable, but not bulletproof. We'll let you know when we release a kevlar version...(just kidding). We hope you'll enjoy our product, and thanks again for your support.

FAQ

  • Yes, Tayogo AMP is IPX8 Waterproof and it can be used under water for several hours.

    It can be used up to 3 meters or 9 feet under water.

    Last updated:
  • As Tayogo AMP has 3 main playing mode and each mode, the playing time varies:

    For the Mp3 Play mode, it can play around 7 hours
    For the Bluetooth headset, it can play around 5 hours
    For the FM playing mode, it can play around 4 hours

    This is based on medium volume.

    Last updated:
  • Tayogo AMP is an ambitious headphones that does everything one can imagine and gets all these functions into 1.

    There are physical buttons to change the different mode by hand.

    The easier way is with Tayogo App, you can change easily by running the App.

    Last updated:
  • You can install Tayogo App to your mobile phone easily from either Apple App Store or Google Play shop.

    Last updated:
  • Tayogo AMP has 8GB memory and it can store thousands of songs.

    It is a headache to choose 20 from thousands of songs for the mp3 player.

    Tayogo App just solves this problem.

    Before going under water, run Tayogo App, make a new playlist for today's swimming and drags your selected songs to the playlist. Then play the songs in this playlist. You can also choose the shuffle or order play for this playlist.

    Then you can go swimming with your selected songs.

    Don't use up or down button during playing, which will destroy your playlist set by the App.

  • We have studied this problem for several years and finally we develop the wing shaped ear buds which just fit ears tightly.

    With it, you can swim at ease, also it will prevent water going into your ears. :)

    Last updated:
  • Tayogo AMP is made by high grade Nylon Plastic material and the headset is fully coated by the silicone material. It is super soft and light and it can float above the water and will not fall down to the water.

    Last updated:
  • The Tayogo AMP has the function of bluetooth headset, you can use it to listen to the music from your mobile phone, and for sure you can take a phone call with it.

    Tayogo AMP is totally waterproof, also for its microphone, so you can use it in any condition, on land or with water.

    While there is a problem for the bluetooth signal. Water Will Block the Bluetooth Signal! This means, the Tayogo AMP will lose bluetooth signal if it is under water. So you need to have the bluetooth headset above the water, and your mobile phone is close with Tayogo AMP (As bluetooth signal distance is 10 meters), then you can use your Tayogo AMP to have the phone call.

    Last updated:
  • For sure, NO.

    Once there is a phone call, Tayogo AMP will immediately transfer to the mode of Bluetooth Headset and give your hints to pick up the phone call. After phone call finishes, it will resume the continued Mp3 playing.
