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.

The love/hate relationship with earbuds is REAL

You lose them. They fall out constantly. And they don't really look all that great. But, you rely on them to get you through a workout. You need them to make it through that flight. What would you do without them??

Who needs this kind of torment? Not us. That's why we created Swings Bluetooth Earrings.

Swings are gorgeously simple, patent-pending, Bluetooth earrings for pierced ears. Wear a pair all day as a cute accessory and "swing" them up into your ears whenever you want to listen to music or relax to a podcast. Designed FOR women BY women, Swings use advanced audio technology while transforming it into wearable art. They are lightweight, comfortable and the sound is amazing. And the best part? THEY WON'T FALL OUT!! Not only does the piercing make it simple to wear Swings, but it also provides stability when they are in use! Who could ask for more? 

Swings are not just gorgeous accessories...

...but they sound great and won't fall out!

Swings Provide a Better Listening Experience

Why? Because rather than relying on the fit of the bud in the ear canal to stay in place,  Swings literally "take the pressure off" by using the piercing post to provide much needed support! Swings are able to stay easily and comfortably in place while in use.

Also, Swings have premium sound quality, comparable to the top brands available on the market today. Our internal components have been developed and spec'd against each one of our competitors currently available. Sound quality is key!

Swings Designs 

We. Like. Options. We bet you do too. That's why we created two distinct versions of Swings: Swings and Swings Sport.

Perfect for sleeping. Swings won't fall out, so you can wake up to your alarm privately and never disturb your partner.

The original Swings have a classic design and will quickly become a go-to accessory, not just for the functionality, but because they look great and match with virtually any outfit. You can select your favorite color combo: Silver/White, Gold/White or Rose Gold/White.

Timeline 

Where This All Began   

Our founder, Melissa Eldridge, has been developing consumer electronics for over a decade. Her goal when she entered the industry was simple: to make technology beautiful. Maybe create a speaker that didn't look totally masculine or a set of earbuds that were actually pretty, rather than props from the set of Star Trek. She wanted to make things that were fun and cute but ALSO technologically advanced. Unfortunately, when presenting these ideas, she met nothing but resistance in the boardroom: "It needs to appeal to everyone equally." (guess no one should create a makeup brand, then?) "Women are a niche market." (umm, what?) "Just make a pink one." (grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr) 

 After over a decade of fighting the good fight, she decided enough was enough. Not only was there room for a woman's voice in consumer electronics, it was NEEDED. So, she created Scandi, a technology company dedicated to creating beautiful, Instragram-worthy products for women. She pulled together a team of like minded, world-class product developers, designers and engineers and asked them: What would you design if you could have earbuds that enhanced your outfit rather than looking like you have broken Q-Tips hanging out of your ears? (yeah, we went there) They brainstormed, collaborated and designed for months. And that's how our Swings Bluetooth Earrings were born.

Our Team

We're an international team based out of Detroit, MI and Shenzhen, China. We have over 20 years of combined experience developing consumer electronics for some of the most recognizable brands in the world. And we're done with playing it safe. 

Melissa - CEO - Secretly still mad about having to make everything pink.

Risks and challenges

As always there are risks and challenges when launching new products. Fortunately, though, our team has launched hundreds of new products over the years so we have a complete understanding and can predict many of the most common pitfalls well in advance. Also, we are fortunate in the fact that our COO lives in China, in close proximity to our factory partner so he can be there daily, monitoring production, doing quality checks and making certain that you receive your Swings on schedule.
But always, challenges can still arise. Whether it's a challenge with the supply chain with long lead time materials (for example) or unexpected issues with shipping, we will be sure to keep our backers informed and up to date. Our timeline was built to accommodate any unforeseen delays because we like to under promise and over deliver!
