About

DUBSTEIN by DUBGEAR

"The bass is pretty intense" - Brian Bailey - Host Indie 88.1 FM Toronto. www.Indie88.com

"This actually sounds awesome. Wow!" - Alan Cross - Professional Music Geek. www.ajournalofmusicalthings.com

We’re into good times and great sound. The DUBSTEIN is our first product, and we’re on a mission to transform portable music – packaging sound in brave new ways! Get ready for a product that delivers exceptional performance, and a whole lot of fun.

How it Works

Pour it…
The DUBSTEIN has a BPA free, dishwasher safe beverage insert for your drink of choice - hot or cold. Remove the drink insert and the DUBSTEIN holds a bottle or can.

Sync it…
Connect wirelessly via Bluetooth to your Smartphone, MP3 player, tablet or computer. You can even receive phone calls by speakerphone!

Play it…
Your tunes belt from high-fidelity stereo speakers. As if that weren't enough, the DUBSTEIN has an easy to reach thumb control pad which allows you to master this rocket ship of FUN.

Drink it!
Enjoy a drink while you rock out to your favorite music. Cheers to that! 

No matter how you mix it, the DUBSTEIN comes ready to deliver serious sound.

Take it anywhere

From coffee to beer, morning to night, we have you covered!

Product Features

· High quality stereo sound

· Bluetooth wireless audio

· Stream from your Smartphone, MP3 player, tablet, computer

· Speakerphone takes calls

· Rechargeable battery (micro USB) with 8 hour playtime

· Comfy handle with thumb input controls

· Removable hot/cold drink container (BPA free + dishwasher safe)

The Finish Line

It's been a 2 year development journey!  Over the last 24 months we have designed the DUBSTEIN from the ground up - using the best quality components. 

The DUBSTEIN has 3 patents pending (2 Design + 1 Utility).

We’re seeking help from fellow DUBBERS like you to finish what we started.

The DUBSTEIN is now production ready; however, we are seeking your support for tooling the mold, and getting product certification (safety, electrical tests, etc). We need that extra boost to get us to the finish line!

Tooling (steel mold):  $50,000

Certification (CE, FCC, RoHS):  $25,000

We are on track to have DUBSTEINs made and shipped for delivery in November 2014.

Risks and challenges

Lead times and Delays:
When working with a manufacturing partner overseas, there are sometimes delays in the supply chain - whether it is re-working the tooling steel, to supplier stock-outs of electronic components.

Quality:
If there are any quality issues, product re-work may be required. Lead time to delivery could be affected. We have made every effort to minimize any risks to quality by preparing and testing multiple prototypes.
