Lots of exciting progress to share!
First, we have finalized our speaker system design, which will include our FreeWavz “Inspiration” speakers, and they sound awesome! Put to the test by our acoustic engineers, they are showing incredible frequency range. Rarely have they seen a speaker of this size have such a range of performance. The first shipment of 100 speakers is on its way and we can’t wait to get them in our test sets and give ‘em a run!
To deliver that full range of music, we redesigned our sound delivery solution to maximize sound quality and provide a comfortable fit. We are pleased to announce that we have chosen one of the best memory foam tips on the market—the Comply Active series. Their stay-in-place fit, amazing all day comfort and ability to block distracting noises made them our top choice. They will softly touch the ear canal to project sound into the ear for more natural circulation-no need to unnaturally jam anything deep into your ear canal.
We have also finalized the housing design and are in the process of receiving quotes to build the production molds. It is exciting to be entering the next phase of production readiness. We are also approaching shipment of our new, uniquely curved batteries. They are due to arrive in early December, just in time to be incorporated into our first 30 production test sets. These sets will be used for UL/CE and other certifications, additional evaluation, integration and on-ear tuning of our biometric algorithms, before we prepare for volume production in January.
The Android app is just about finished (more photos can be viewed by clicking the article link). We will be ready to move forward with the iOS app shortly, which will be followed by integration with other fitness apps, such as Runkeeper, MyFitnessPal and the MapMyFitness family of apps, and health management apps, such as Apple Healthkit, Google Fit and Walgreens Balance Rewards (integration subject to the cooperation of the app providers)...[click for full article]
