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.

Technology Behind

 
-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.

 

Products

        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.

Accessories

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!

 

Add-On

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.
