Bettina commented on GRIND Earmuff

Hi. I wonder if creating a mechanism where people can return the product to your company when they no longer want/need it and where it might then be refurbished and sold at a discount can be one way to recycle? One example might be earmuffs for a child who has grown out of them?

Bettina commented on GRIND Earmuff

Hi team. Congrats on being shortlisted in the challenge! Great presentation. I liked looking through your photos to see how you are experimenting and working with the grind materials. I also like how you have considered a variety of possible uses/users as shown in your ux maps.

I have a few questions about the project.
Are you testing the grind earmuffs for noise reduction and comparing this with earmuffs that construction workers currently use? Is there an industry standard for this type of product?

How will these earmuffs have a snugger fit than competitors? (I saw this listed in your value proposition.) Is there something about the materials or your process that will provide this?

Another possible market for headphones is museums. Most museums, at least in NYC where I have used museum taped audio, have provided the big earmuff type of headphones.

Looking forward to seeing the project develop!
