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.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
If music is an important part of your life you deserve to hear the real thing.
amplify is a powerhouse of a Hi-Fi Bluetooth headphone amplifier combined with an audiophile grade DAC that allows you to stream Hi-Res audio wirelessly from any smart mobile device to your existing favorite wired headphones.
amplify employs the most advanced and latest Bluetooth 5.0 technology along with AAC, Qualcomm aptX Classic, aptX HD and aptX LOW LATENCY audio codecs to stream pure stereo wireless audio, delivering full-range dynamic sound with crystal clarity, from your mobile devices to your wired headphones.
A unique antenna design and Bluetooth 5.0 technology synergize to offer incredible wireless connectivity and stability within a 10m range.
amplify uses the high quality Qualcomm aptX HD technology, which is the high definition version of the original aptX classic audio codec.
aptX HD is an enhanced audio codec that allows you to receive 48KHz/24bit audio via Bluetooth and has been engineered to improve the signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in lower background noise. This improved technology helps listeners to hear even the smallest details in their music and is designed to provide realistic audio quality that is hard to distinguish from the actual live sound.
amplify is also equipped with the newly launched Qualcomm QCC5100 series chipset that is designed for robust, high quality, truly wireless listening experience with low power consumption for longer audio playback.
Featuring dual DSP’s (Digital Signal Processor) and support for transmitting 24-bit audio over Bluetooth with aptX HD along with external Hi-Fi DAC with amplifier that reproduces high-quality sound up to 384KHz/32bit, amplify has the capability of delivering high-res sound that is much closer to analog sound even through Bluetooth.
Designed to reproduce high-fidelity audio, amplify is equipped with the advanced 384KHz/32bit AKM AK4376 Digital-Analogue Converter (DAC) with an integrated headphone amplifier. With an impressively high 125dB signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and low distortion, amplify delivers sound quality generally heard only in more expensive DAC's.
The integrated high-performance headphone amplifier is designed for driving the most demanding of headphones and will satisfy even the most demanding headphone enthusiast with its high output and revealing sound.
amplify is designed with a “driving” concept that focuses on boosting weak signals, so it doesn’t get caught out when powering high-impedance headphones.
Designed for a seamless experience to complement the technology you use every day.
amplify supports voice calls and features a built-in microphone that enables you to receive calls when using your normal wired headphones without a microphone.
Equipped with a 300mAh rechargeable lithium polymer battery, amplify will give you up to 12 hours of playtime so you can enjoy your music on the go for longer.
With a micro USB charging cable, amplify can easily be connected to a power source and recharged in 3 hours – well in time for its next adventure.
Sync two amplify’s together and share your favorite song with your bestie. Enjoy the same music in hi-res audio with separate headphones/earphones.
amplify is the perfect way to get great-sounding wireless audio not only from your smartphone to headphones but also from your smartphone to any audio system.
Encased in premium anodized aluminum housing, the compact and lightweight amplify is designed for optimum portability, comfort and durability.

This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 475+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $225MM raised between them.
Risks and challenges
Our team at Auris has extensive experience in design, electronics, manufacturing and supply chain. Amplify is our fifth product after successfully developing and producing several products in the past.
With a working prototype developed and testing completed successfully, we feel prepared to enter the mass production stage and are confident of keeping to our shipping schedule.
We promise to keep our Kickstarter backers updated on all our progress. Please note that International backers will be responsible for paying any duties or taxes levied in their home country.
