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:

Audiophile Hi-Fi Sound to Bring you a Better Experience  

We are the first and the only team to adopt the natural gemstone as the sound chamber of the Bluetooth earphone. We focus on creating a brand-new acoustic product, the Bluetooth earphone with Hi-Fi quality. This time, we invite the tune master Chen who once tuned for such international top brands of electro-acoustic products as American Harman and England Marshall. Master Chen has six invention and utility model patents. Through 23 times of modification from the density and thickness of the original stone, horn diaphragm, to the mold, it comes out the fantastic sound quality of HiNICE+.

Technology Inside

The traditional produce of jewelry is complicated, high-cost and immature. Besides, using a lot of metal and stone material has negative effects on signal transmission of the electronic module. Furthermore, the consumption of the battery is quite high. Therefore, the combination of jewelry and the electronic module has a high demand for industrial design.  

We put a lot of effort to solve these problems.

We have the mature screening and appraising mechanism of the supply chain.

Technology has silently appeared every corner of our life and even infiltrate our interior. We try to fit in and improve the lifestyle it brings us. However, not every advanced technological product is what we want. Therefore, when we began to design HiNICE+, we had more reflection. Except the sound, health and artificial intelligence users need, we can not add any wasteful function to this product. We integrate the concept of Less is More into the fashionable product.

Eason C. has been devoted to the original audio and industrial design of earphone for 4 years. He worked with such 3C accessories brands as OPPO, Gionee, Huawei and Rapoo and the supply chain. Therefore, he accumulates a lot of industry resources of the top brands and foundry, exporting over 200 kinds of audio product as earphone and stereo. Besides, he co-created the original earphone brand and worked on marketing management. As a team from, the goal of HiNICE+ is to do one thing well, purely combining the technology and beauty and making it more harmonious with people.

From moral of the LOGO to the development of the product, we always hope to work for the pursuit of the natural lifestyle of modern young people with technology. We define it as The Leaf Culture.

Where our design and logo inspired
Where our design and logo inspired

Leaf is the most fundamental and important element and decoration of a plant. It silently grows with the growth of the tree and continuously transports the nutrients of life to the tree. It always faces toward the direction of sunshine. In this way, it can gain the green to decorate the tree. Even though every leaf is unique, they comply with the laws of nature, becoming the eternal companion with trees.

We are the unique and independent individuals just like the leaf, and we struggle to become the beautiful flower. However, we forget that even though the flower is gorgeous, it is easy to vanish. We do not need to be the charming flower in others’ eyes, because we are the unique “leaf”. We draw the sunshine from the best position and bring it to the full play. Gradually, we will realize what we care most is not flattery in the glorious time but the encouragement in the dark time. HiNICE+ have this kind of energy.

Risks and challenges

Passionate about understanding the relationship between humans and technology, HiNICE+ aims to create products that enhance the real life human experience, rather than detract from it. HiNICE+ frees from the industry design standards of earbuds and go for something more fashionable for women.

The traditional produce of jewelry is complicated, high-cost and immature. Besides, using a lot of metal and stone material has negative effects on signal transmission of electronic module. Furthermore, the consumption of battery is quite high. Therefore, the combination of jewelry and electronic module has a high demand to industrial design. We put a lot of effort to solve these problems. And we made it!

We hope more people will witness the beauty of HiNICE+ and enjoy the convenience it brings.
