About

Headphones and speakers are essential for many people. We constantly play music through different devices, and it always takes some efforts to disconnect and reconnect between the devices. What if we could simplify the daily usage a bit easier?

VERTO HEADPHONE combines the functions in one. It's not just a regular headphone; it's also a portable speaker. You can use it like standard headphone, and you can also play the music out loud and enjoy with others together.

VERTO HEADPHONE have 2 ways to use it.

VERTO HEADPHONE is a headphone, and it's also a portable speaker. Maybe you've seen the similar stuff before, but we can assure you that we are different.

When we listen through the headphone, you'll want it clear and detailed. When it's a speaker, you want to hear loud and crisp. The materials are a lot different between them to reach the performance. We customise the "Dual-sided Coaxial Unit" to separate the usage of headphone and speaker with limited space because we don't compromise the quality in either way you use it.

 We know remembering the functions of buttons and switches is difficult, so we integrate them into a user-friendly design. By rotating headphone case towards the front side, VERTO switch into speaker mode immediately. There's no complicated mode switching or indicator lights. Just a simple turn can make it work!

To provide long battery life for speaker mode, we try to make the capacity as high as we can. But, it takes time to recharge it, and no one likes to wait for the recharging. VERTO will come with Quick Charge ability to let you speed up the recharging process.

We choose Bluetooth 5.0 to make sure the connection is strong and stable. Also, it provides the outstanding power-saving ability to extend the using time!

Buttons are annoying! It's hard to recognise the buttons, especially when you wearing it on your head. It's not easy to find them when you cannot seem them. That's why we combine the functions into a three-way switch that you don't need to find the right button you want.

 1. ON/OFF

Press the button for 2 seconds to turn on VERTO. When the power is on, press the button for 2 seconds to turn off.

2. Mode Switch

We want to sure that we keep the quality of sound while playing both privately and publicly. We designed a whole new way to switch between headphone and speaker call "Dual-sided Coaxial Unit." The speaker has two sides and shares one core. One side is a 40mm headphone unit, and the other is a loudspeaker unit. With the specially developed circuit, audio can switch between sides easily.

 It took us months to come out the first unit prototype before we jumped into the headphone itself. We want to make sure the speaker works well on both sides, and they won't affect the sound to each other.

For - EAMUS - our first project showing to the world, we want to bring the personality of this team and this brand into this project. We've come out with some sketches, but most of them are not entirely satisfying. And then we use the triangle shape from our logo, and we happily came out the design which can present the functions and the personality.

But there are many problems along the way when we were making the prototype. Our engineers successfully created a chamber to isolate the circuits and units to make sure the signal maintain strong and stable.

We finally came out our very first prototype in March. We got our most important function done and working well, but there are still many details to be fixed.

In May, we finished our second prototype and ready to show to the world! While we were shooting the video for the campaign, the staff and the model were all playing with the prototype and love it!

We design VERTO for using it on the go or outdoors, but we don't want to limit the way we use it. Introducing LEVO Stand, the headphone stand charges your VERTO and your phone.

LEVO is like every headphone stand; you can display your headphone while not using it. You can also turn VERTO into speaker mode on the Stand and face the speaker side towards you.

With a built-in USB-C port, you can charge VERTO easily. You can also place your wireless charging supported phone on the top of the base.

Along with LEVO Stand, QC 3.0 adaptor will be in the package as well, so LEVO can provide 9w quick charge for both USB-C and wireless charging pad!

WHO ARE WE? We're EAMUS!

EAMUS means “let’s go” in Latin. We want to design the products that allow us to share with those people around us. That’s the reason we founded this brand.

We started with the headphone, which is the most common audio product around the world. In Latin, VERTO means “turn” and “versatile.” We come out this headphone which can turn into a speaker without any effort. You can enjoy your music as usual. Or, you can share the music with people around you right away with a quick turn and let everyone immersed around the music.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge of VERTO is to deliver on time. As quality is always our key concern for our brand, we want our final products to meet our high requirement as preset. We have many customised and specialised parts, and we need to make sure every part of VERTO is working correctly. It may lengthen the time to make them available. For sure, we always keep close eyes on monitoring quality and time. We want our customers satisfied with our products, so quality will be our most important job in this project.
