OSSIC X DEVELOPMENT

OSSIC X VR TESTING

Above is a photo of the latest OSSIC X prototype with several VR HMD's. There has been a lot of internal testing with the prototype among VR ecosystems, games, etc and things are progressing quite nicely. It's important to note that many of the hardware features of the prototype are not utilizing the final materials, the headband included. The ergonomics of the headphone are also being improved, although we're happy that the top headpad provides more than enough comfort while wearing an HMD.

NEXT PROTOTYPE BUILD RAMPING UP

We're still implementing our updated designs and feedback into the next prototype build, which is scheduled to begin production this month. At this stage, 3D printed parts are still very useful to ensure quick iteration before larger investment is made in the final prototype assembly. Some of our team members have already left for our manufacturer and will remain there until the next version is shipped. More updates to come.
