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.

 Literally feel the music vibrate through your bones with the HeadNoise Fit's revolutionary bone-conduction engineering. Components at the front of the headband send gentle vibrations through your forehead. These vibrations travel through your skull and to your inner ear, generating sound.

The HeadNoise Fit's biometric sensors empower you to take control of your body, delivering precise, real-time fitness data.

Set goals, analyze progress, and measure success with the HeadNoise Fit application - a digital, easy-to-use fitness companion to keep you motivated through thick and thin.

Dirty headband? The HeadNoise Fit is designed for easy cleaning. Simply remove the CORE from the manufactured slit in the back of the headband, and throw the material in the wash.

We found it vitally important to combine our hardware with software to make a truly great product and enhance your overall experience. From the casual jogger to the fitness enthusiast we kept you in mind from start to finish. HeadNoise Fit will release an app alongside the headband upon delivery. The app is still currently in development. One of the best things about the app being built in-house is that we will be able to take feedback from backers to make improvements as we progress.

Transducers at the front of the headband send gentle vibrations through your forehead. These vibrations travel through your skull and generate sound. 

Located in the headband CORE, bluetooth-enabled sensors monitor your fitness traits through your forehead and skull. 

  • Step Counter: the algorithm for the step counter is based on the data collected by the state-of-the-art MMA8653FC chip by NXP. The MMA8653FC is a 3-axis (left/right, up/down, in/out) accelerometer with 10 bits of resolution. With its available +/- 2g of full-scale range of force, and its compact size (2 mm x 2 mm x 1 mm), the MMA8653FC provides a reliable and accurate measure of your steps while walking or running, while being light on the headband.
  • Heart-Rate Sensor: HeadNoise uses Maxim Integrated's heart-rate sensor integrated chip, the MAX30100. This low power-consuming optical sensor includes an infrared LED, a photodetector, optimized optics, and low-noise analog signal processing to detect pulse heart-rate signals. 
                                                                                                                                                                 

We believe in complete transparency at HeadNoise, so we're showing you exactly what your hard-earned money is going towards - expert manufacturing to produce the highest quality product. 

The HeadNoise Fit is built to keep you safe, no matter the circumstance. Today's headphone industry tells a different story.

Noise-cancelling headphones are the staple of the headphone industry today. Sure, they provide a unique experience, but they shouldn't compromise your safety. When you cancel outside noise and completely block out an entire sense, you put yourself at risk for injury and sometimes even death. Take a look at these statistics from a few years ago.

Whether you're pacing through busy city streets or exploring winding bike trails, your environmental awareness protects you from the world's accidents. The HeadNoise Fit keeps you tuned in, so you won't ever miss a beat - with the world or your music

Q: How does the HeadNoise Fit connect to my phone? How far is the range?

A: HeadNoise uses Bluetooth v4.1 to connect media and app data to the headband. You can go as far as 100 feet with crystal clear audio connection. 

Q: How long does the battery last?

A: The battery will last for approximately 6 hours on a full charge. Thanks to the USB Type C charging port, HeadNoise will only take 1 hour to fully charge.

Q: How is the bone conduction and biometric technology integrated into the headband? Can I wash the headband safely?

A: The headband has a removable unit called the CORE, which contains two transducer units for bone conduction along with the pedometer, hydration sensors, and heartbeat monitor. They are all connected to the battery unit and bluetooth chip. This CORE can be easily taken out of the headband so that the headband can be safely washed after workouts.

Q: Is the HeadNoise Fit waterproof?

A: The HeadNoise has an Ingress Protection rating of 65, meaning it will be safe from rain and sweat but not total submersion. HeadNoise is not designed for swimmers (at least not yet!).

Hey! We're the HeadNoise team -- a young group of uniquely driven millennials wanting to make a difference. Our passion is creating a safer, more effective, and more interactive fitness experience. We love this world, a healthy lifestyle, and our music, so we wanted to create something that gives you all three at the exact same time. We hope to provide simple, safe, and powerful tools that can lead to a more meaningful, active life, so you can do more and live better.

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to inspire better, balanced lives. We plan to achieve that.

Since the beginning, we have dedicated ourselves to producing the highest quality fitness accessory. From manufacturing and design to utility, the HeadNoise Fit, along with its application, reflects our team’s undivided commitment to excellence.

That being said, it would be erroneous to ignore the possible hiccups that may occur when conducting business internationally. Despite partnership with an esteemed manufacturer in Asia, it is not unreasonable to accept the possibility of time-delays that occur with over-sea shipping, as well as the possibility of manufacturers failing to build the product to our precise specifications.

Regarding the product’s assembly, when properly assembled, the Fit carries no danger to you; the worst failure would be the headband shutting off. Furthermore, by committing our production to the highest standards, the HeadNoise team believes they can provide the quality and design that our backers deserve. We don’t settle for anything less than the best, and neither should you.
