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

This is Pulse - The Headphone Subwoofer

Pulse is a patent pending, wearable headphone accessory, that delivers an astonishing amount of bass, you can both hear, and feel. 

Pulse is the first of its kind to be retrofittable to almost any set of over-ear headphones. Its unique design utilizes the entire bass frequency spectrum, to deliver an incredible new dimension of music listening. 

Now Featured on Geeky Gadgets!

Bass you can Feel?

YES! Pulse works the same way as any 2.1 audio system. The headband holds a powerful 10W driver, tuned to vibrate only in the bass frequency spectrum. The vibrations are amplified through the ear-cups of your headphones, providing an unparalleled bass experience. 

How's it different from Bass Boost?

Conventional "Bass Boost" technology works by filtering out high and mid frequencies and then boosting the overall volume, which can degrade the quality of your music.

 The Pulse Advantage.

With Pulse, the additional driver is attenuated to only produce bass frequencies giving the listener an immersive experience, without affecting the headphone mix.

 Music Lovers.

One of the most common threads of modern-day music is that we're producing tracks with a substantial amount of sub-bass. However, the speakers in our headphones are too small to accurately sustain those low frequencies. So when we're listening to our favourite tunes, we're missing out on all the fun pumping low end. The solution to this is to add another speaker that's dedicated only to the sub-bass. With Pulse's unique design, the sub-bass is vibrated into your headphones, and amplified by the ear-cups. Now you can hear and feel your music, the way its supposed to.

 Musicians, DJ's, and Producers.

In the last few decades, music production has moved from expensive studios to basement closets. Though the one thing that hasn't changed is the need for an accurate reference of your music. With Pulse, you can create a club like atmosphere from the comfort of your own apartment, without getting noise complaints.

 Gamers and VR

The gaming landscape is forever changing and so is your gaming equipment. The introduction of the Rumble Pak was a huge step forward for the haptic gaming experience. We're taking it one step further...

 Retrofittable.

Will this fit my Headphones?

We can't guarantee it will fit all headphones brands and models across the board, so here's a quick view of the headband clip for a better look. If the headband on your headphones is within these dimensions, then you should be a great fit!

 Easy Set Up.

Timeline

Taxes and VAT.

As we can't reflect every country and regions individual taxes and VAT's in our pricing, we would like to remind everyone that it will be the responsibility of the backers to handle any extra costs associated.

Risks and challenges

As of now, our biggest hurdles are completed. We have sourced our parts, made connections with manufacturers, and tested out prototypes.

The only thing standing in our way is funding. To make a product with complete consistency, we need to have a professional level of manufacturing ability. Mold tooling and other associated costs have a huge price tag, so we need your help to get over that small financial mountain.
