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.

About

 

 

 

ADVANCED GT-R is an open-back full-size over-ear headphones that are built from the ground up to deliver uncompromising audiophile sound from its proprietary planar magnetic drivers.

 

The proprietary single-sided 65mm planar magnetic driver used to power the GT-R provides extremely transient and quick bass response and treble extension that far exceeds regular headphones in the market.

 

 

 

The open-back design means that the back of the headphone housing is open. This allows the sound-stage to be ever so expansive, and its imaging to be accurate and realistic.

 

 

The GT-R is designed to be comfortable for long listening sessions by utilizing the self- adjusting headband, exquisite protein leather and super-soft memory ear pads and padded headband. The ear cups rotate 180-degree to fit the contour of your head perfectly.

 

The GT-R is beautifully constructed with the premium high-strength steel and highest quality protein leather for prolonged durability. Each part is meticulously prepared and precision- assembled with near-zero tolerance for play.

 

 

 

The GT-R has already gone through prototype stage of development and is in its final stage of development. The fund from Kickstarter will allow us to open required tooling and secure raw material in order kick off the production.

 

 

It was for the love of music. It was the respect for all musicians of the past, present and future. It was for the struggling instrumental buried under the heavy bass line. It was for the audiophiles craving that crystal clear and mind-blowing detail. We wanted to bring the ultimate aural experience in a package that is simply affordable for everyone - because we believe that everyone deserves good sound.

Our quest for the ultimate sound has just begun. We're working relentlessly with world's renowned audio engineers that have brought some of the best sound to the market as well as local and global musicians in different genres ranging from hard rock, hip-hop, EDM to jazz for that advanced sound.

We are fully focused in packaging and delivering this superior audio in the most durable and the most comfortable chassis.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for a hardware crowdfunding campaign is managing overhead cost and manufacturing timeline. We have been in mass production of previous 2 Kickstarted products (M4 and Accessport), as well as several other products outside of crowdfunding campaign.

We have the right resources and team in place to bring this project into final mass production once enough fund is collected to open tooling and and gather raw material.

We have invested heavily into development, prototyping and preparing for the Kickstarter campaign. This means our biggest risk is not meeting funding goal for this project, which will mean a big financial loss as well as the timing into the market.
