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.

Unboxing Double Tap R2 Modular Bluetooth Headphones: 

 How to attach and detach R2 earphones: 

 How to connect to your R2 Bluetooth module: 

 Quick and easy ear tip install and removal: 

Hello everyone! My name is Randy May, the creator of Double Tap Audio and these are our Double Tap R2 Modular Bluetooth headphones. We have been working on and designing these headphones over the last year based on customer feedback along with the changing mobile market. Bluetooth headphones are more or less a must now due to phone manufacturers not including audio ports on their phones. There are still a lot of people that like wired headphone, so we thought we would make our headphones do both. 

The Double Tap R2 is modular. Meaning, you can take parts of it off and add them to other parts. We made it so you can remove your earphones from the wired or wireless unit and connect them to whatever one you would like to use. This allows you to continue to use your headphones, even when you need to charge your Bluetooth module, after about 8-11 hours of use or 100 hours of standby time. All you need to do is detach your earphones from the Bluetooth module and snap them into the wired module. Your Bluetooth module takes 2 hours to charge completely.

Our product is hand made, using high quality materials, and our earphones are made from real .40 caliber, once fired, brass bullet casings. They have been cleaned, to remove any tracings of lead and other residues, and the primers have been replaced with strong neodymium magnets. You will have your choice from 3 different finishes; Raw Brass, Nickel Plated and Blue Green Patina Brass. Every earphone is sealed with a strong lacquer to protect your finish and keep your earphones looking good.

The Bluetooth set is equipped with Qualcomm aptX audio. This will deliver HD audio over your Bluetooth connection. We included volume controls, along with a call / play button and a built-in microphone so they can be used as a hands free device. They can be connected to PC, Android and iOS. The wired module also has the same volume controls along with a call / play button and built-in microphone.

We have all suppliers lined up and ready to go. We are also ready to start production, but now we need your help. With your contribution, we will be able to get everything we will need to make our prototypes into full consumer product. We really can't do this without you though, so with your support you will receive a set of the Double Tap R2 Modular Bluetooth headphones before anyone else. As a thank you for helping fund our project, we will discount all of our R2 headphones to all backers. Let’s make this happen!

Risks and challenges

With any project there will always be unforeseen challenges, but we feel we're ready for anything that comes our way. All designs and prototypes have already been tested and are ready to move on to production.
