Handmade Durable Headphones with Controls & Microphone

Continuing with our high-quality build and sound, our new R1M's have an inline microphone and controls for your iOS or Android devices.



About the Project

Hello, my name is Randy May, creator of Double Tap Audio. Our company was successfully funded via a small kickstarter campaign for our Double Tap R1 headphones. Since then, we have had lots of requests to make a set of headphones with the same quality of our R1, but with an inline microphone and controls. We have worked for months on designing and prototyping an inline system that would hold up to our high standards of durability, along with keeping the headphones comfortable and reliable. We are very proud to introduce our newest headphones, the Double Tap R1M. Keeping with the original idea of the R1, the R1M's are made tough. Built from real brass bullet casings and custom made billet aluminum parts, our R1M’s have a solid premium feel without sacrificing durability. Our R1 and R1M's share the same high-quality, multi-layer cord. This cord is made from a protective nylon sheath and flexible silicone wire. This allows the nylon sheath to take most of strain and stress while the silicone wire floats freely inside. This combination of materials also allows our cord to out last and withstand more than most other cords on the market. The cord is also tangle-resistant, so no more dealing with a tangled mess every time you want to use your headphones. Also, every set comes with magnetic-backed earphones to allow for clean storage, or you can use this to hang the headphones around your neck when they're not in use.

Reality Check

  • Claim:

    "deliver crisp and clear highs, mids, and lows that even an audiophile can appreciate."

  • Reality:

    Ear buds with a 10 mm driver can deliver nice sound, but are limited. The size of these in ear headphones can be great for what they are, however, true audiophiles are very particular about how they listen to music.

  • Claim:


  • Reality:

    With an already released product and successful campaign on Kickstarter, Double Tap has proven consistency and durability. The durability on these should not be affected with the addition of in line controls and microphone.

  • Claim:

    Inline microphone and controls

  • Reality:

    These features are a great addition to the already successful Kickstarter project, which was the Double Tap R1. This technology exists and does not require technical difficulty to add. Randy, is very transparent in the stages of design in an attempt to make a successful product.

Bottom Line

Double Tap has a proven record of success with the R1 project that was successfully funded on Kickstarter as well as appropriately delivered to backers. The reviews for this product are readily available for you to consider before you back this project. The addition of the inline controls and microphone make the build slightly more complex, but Randy, the founder, is transparent with the difficulties and how they made the addition.
