From day one, we wanted KANOA to be ready for whatever life throws at you. Our earphones will be in the hands (and ears) of real people, so we wanted to test KANOA in real world situations. This is what separates us from everything else.
At one time or another, I'm sure you've experienced your earphones becoming loose while sweating. We've all been there, and its annoying. However, what if I were to tell you that our earphones don't suffer from this issue? Instead of telling you that our earphones stay secure under sweaty conditions, we wanted to show you.
Meet Drew, a trainer at Crossfit Burlingame, and the person who put KANOA through its paces during an intense crossfit workout.
Our test lasted for an hour and involved multiple rounds of different movements, such as olympic lifting, pull-ups, explosive work, and 400m runs. We told him that we were specifically testing our ergonomics when exposed to sweat. Drew definitely delivered by keeping his rest under 20 seconds. Watch the video below to see KANOA, and Drew, in action!
The test went incredibly well, but the real questions is -- what did Drew think about KANOA after demoing them? Here's what he had to say:
"I loved the fit. I could definitely see myself using these everyday in the gym, during my runs, or when I just want to escape the outside noise. Not once did I feel these get loose. They were super secure. I really don't think think any type of movement will make these fall out, unless you actually use your hands to physically take them out haha. You guys really hit the nail on the head in the fitment and sound quality department. When I first listened to KANOA, I wasn't expecting such clear and powerful sound from these two little earbuds. I'm seriously excited for the final product, and I can't wait to grab myself pair!"
Special thanks to the Crossfit Burlingame for helping us demo our earphones. Through this extensive process of testing, reiteration, and feedback; we are now able to transition into Beta testing. Beta signifies the final stages of testing and fine-tuning, where we begin to focus not only on the product, but allocating the necessary resources to begin mass production.
Together, we are making something truly special, and we can't wait to show the world what Team KANOA is all about. Thank you for being part of the journey, and above all, thank you for being part of the Team.
