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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

-Why? The Only Earphone You Will Ever Need
Technology is giving rise to new designs and features of audio devices day by day. Particularly talking about in-ear monitors (IEMs), the topology connects balanced armature drivers to a crossover circuit in an aperture. This makes in-ear monitors pre-tuned and does not allow for customization. Since interpretation of music gets limited here, modularity in device design is needed in order to allow flexibility in audio quality and performance. Improvements in the module’s circuit can be made by removing detachable drivers and tuning various components to allow room for equalization. This concludes that an in-ear monitor is not limited in its functionality; instead, it can be customized to address individual audio needs.
The worth mentioning in-ear monitor in the market is M.E. 2 that has Dual-driver balanced armatures with interchangeable modules. Users can easily alter the sound signatures pertinent to their needs. The two main modules offered arethe Chorus and the EDM modules.
Chorus & EDM Module
The Chorus Module is designed to enhance the performance of pop/vocal music. It provides a vivid sound signature with bright Mids. The EDM Module, on the other hand, is a fantastic bass head module that offers a punchy bass with crystal clear treble.
Specs • 2 Balanced armature drivers • 1 tweeter for high & mid, 1 woofer for bass • 2-way crossover configuration • Dual bore sound channels • Input Sensitivity: 110 dB @ 1kHz , 1mW • Impedance: 20 Ohm @ 1kHz • Frequency response: 10Hz-20kHz
For excellent, non-compromise audio experience, M.E. 4 is the top-notch choice comes with Quad-driver balanced armatures. The two modules come with M.E 4 are named the Symphony and the Reference Module.
Symphony & Reference Module
TheReference Module focuses on crafting the most precise musical earpiece for music/record producers. It is well-balanced with a neutral sound signature and a rounded soundstage. As for the Symphony module, it is designed to be tuned for Symphonic Orchestra. It has amazing soundstage with lean bass and neutral treble
Specs • 4 Balanced armature drivers • 1 tweeter for high, 2-tweeter for mid, 1 woofer for bass • 3-way crossover configuration • Dual bore sound channels • Input Sensitivity: 118 dB @ 1kHz , 1mW • Impedance: 32 Ohm @ 1kHz • Frequency response: 5Hz-20kHz
Both M.E 2 and M.E 4 will include two modules, a 48" detachable cable, Eartips in different sizes, and a protective case. Additionally, we are excited to announce that all of our earphones will feature Comply foam and Spinfit silicon ear tips to provide the best listening experience for every backer!
For only $69 dollars, you will receive an upgrade cable to bring your music to the next level.
Upgrade Cable Packages
For the upgraded cable in the M.E. 2 package, it comes with a premium MPS 3.5mm audio jack. As for the M.E. 4 package, a luxury Oyaide P-3.5AP audio jack from Japan is chosen.
Oyaide P-3.5AP is one of the best 3.5mm audio jacks available on the market thanks to its superior manufacturing process. With the unique palladium plating, it is more balanced with better separation and sonic image compared to the MPS audio jack. M.E.4 is our higher-end product, and we want to deliver the best listening experience to our consumer possible. Therefore, we offer them exclusively for M.E 4 upgraded cable package to maximize the performance.
However, this does not mean the upgraded cable come with M.E. 2 is less worthy. The remarkable coaxial design of MPS audio jack provides a richer, warmer, and smoother mids compare to the stock cable. It also has more “spices” added in that emphasizes on vocal performance.
