      Kathy - first of all, thanks for taking the time to let us know... a whole YEAR after owning them! Wow, that's appreciation! So glad you discovered the 1+1 feature... mini surround sound was what we had in mind!

      Any progress on a new speaker?

    4. David Laituri Creator on June 11, 2013

      Wow, Ian - that's what we like to hear; thanks for the compliment!

      Loving my 1Q's!!! I use it every day when I shower and then because it is so portable, I take it with me where ever I go around the house. but honestly, I don't really need to since the sound is so full and it travels well that I can leave the 1Q downstairs and I can be jamming upstairs with control. LOVE IT!! great product

      Hi Shahrouz - working on it now!

    7. Shahrouz S. on June 10, 2013

      when are we going to see the next project from this team?! im still loving the Q1 and I want to get on the next project and fund it !!

    8. Shu-Wei Chang on March 20, 2013

      Hi David,
      I still haven't received my 1Q's here in Taiwan. Any ideas?
      let me know


    9. Shahrouz S. on February 1, 2013

      I love 1Q. I wish that the next version is just as small, has just as great quality but you add some cool features.
      i.e. an answer button for when you get calls, maybe a microphone so you talk to whoever calls when your music is cut off from a phone call.. but honestly i love it the way it is. its gonna be hard to top it

      Good to hear - the 1Es will be sent separately!

    12. Ronald Hankel on January 25, 2013

      Hi David, thanks for resending. I received my 1Q's this week on the other address (via Sweden?) and very happy with it. Too bad the earphones were you promised were not in the box?

      @ David, thought you should see this.. i saw this on another site and found it to look awfully familiar

    15. Ben Gilbey on January 13, 2013

      Hi David, I've called SingPost (local Singapore postal service) and they can't use a USPS tracking number to track locally. Two different systems. It's coming up to 2 months now since it left the US - have any other international orders been similarly delayed? What's the remedy if I still don't get them by say the end of Jan?

    16. Benoît Adant on January 12, 2013

      I have the same problem than Robert Woods, same question: do you have a simple diagram? ( I'm good at doing electronic stuff and soldering ;) thanks

    17. Robert Woods on January 11, 2013

      Tried a multitude of different cables and still the same result.

      Tried connected by bluetooth and with a cable.

    18. David Laituri Creator on January 10, 2013

      Hi - can you try something first? Try using a different 3.5 mm cable - it's possible that one cable end is wired wrong. Let me know what you find out.

    19. Robert Woods on January 10, 2013

      I love my speakers so many thanks. They were really useful over the christmas period.

      One strange that I found was that the bass seemed less when I had them plugged together and something seemed a bit off when I was watching a TV program on my laptop.

      I saw someone else say that their speakers were out of phase so I ran some tests
      I'm now 100% certain that they are out of phase as the out of phase sound sample clearly produces much deeper bass and correct imaging.

      So basically I need to know how to get this sorted. I'm in the UK so replacement is going to be costly and take a long time, so I'm more than happy to do a little rewiring myself.

      So my question is: Do you have a simple diagram that would help me identify which one hasn't been wired correctly?
      I imagine its just the speaker attached the wrong way round because I assume the 3.5mm sockets are attached to the board.

      Any help to sort it out would be appreciated.

      Ben - Shipped 11/14 USPS #LJ684404595US. Tracking shows it left the US on 11/15. Can you check with your local post office? We can't track once it leaves the US.

    21. David Laituri Creator on January 9, 2013

      We'll check into it....

    22. Ben Gilbey on January 9, 2013

      Hi David, follow-up to my post below, it's been almost 6 weeks now and I still haven't received my 1Q's here in Singapore. Any ideas?

    23. David Laituri Creator on December 24, 2012

      Alfred - please contact us directly @, we would be glad to help out there

    24. Alfred Hu on December 24, 2012

      Hi David, I'm having some problems with my 1Q? None of my devices are able to detect it anymore. Is there a way to perform a hard reset on it? Would appreciate it if I can get some help, thanks!

    25. Su Grant on December 22, 2012

      I received my 3 1Qs. They are very nice looking, good product build quality. Nice packaging and graphics. I like the portability and quality for the size. I will be giving two 1Qs away as gifts to family. They sound pretty good. Great accessory for phones & tablet devices.. I appreciate the earphones too. Thanks!

    26. David Laituri Creator on December 18, 2012

      All - so very happy that the Kickstarter 1Q's are all landing on loving homes - in time for the holidays, too! Fingers crossed that they all make it in time...

    27. Eric Martens on December 18, 2012

      OMG, these things are amazing........

      yes i have my two 1Q's. they worked out of the box and the sound is just great.

      congratulations on delivering such a cool product. i am really looking forward to new products you think of

      and....Thanks for the headphones. i was utterly amazed by the build & sound quality of them. in their metal box they now belong to my standard kit of electronics i carry with me on a daily basis.

      Hi David,
      Just got my hands on a 1Q, and like most others, I'm completely taken aback & utterly impressed by the final product. Looks good, works great, and sounds even better. Congratulations to you and the team on exceeding my expectations (and I thought I had set a fairly high bar) all around!!!

      I received my two 1Qs today! I love these things... they're beautiful, the packaging is thoughtful and environmentally friendly, and the sound rocks. My phone and Nexus 7 have never sounded better!

      Dear David, I had just received my 1Q here in Singapore.
      The red is so much more gorgeous in my hand than on the photos....
      The whole feel of it, from the packaging to the cloth bag and the 1Q..very professionally done, and yet a sense of loads of human care.
      Thanks again!
      Happy Holidays!

    31. Nick on December 13, 2012

      Hi David, I received my 3 beautiful 1Q's yesterday. I freaking love these speakers, I had planned to selfishly keep 2 for myself and give 1 away as a Christmas present, but they are so cool I am going to have to give one to someone else to keep my present rep high! I already have a bunch of people in my office feeling stupid for not listening to me when I told them to back this. I look forward to buying a 2Q for my house next. Happy Holidays and thanks for the passion that gave us all such a perfect little speaker.

    32. Chuck Marshall on December 13, 2012

      Evangelist, not evagenlist. I wish these comments allowed for editing (or offered spell check)!

    33. Chuck Marshall on December 13, 2012

      Got 'em! So great. My son (3) thinks they are magic and was estactic about the way the pair made his iphone racing game sound. Music, of course sounds great, finish is beautifu (and suprisingly loud high at tiop volume!), and as everyone mentioned already, the packaging is professional and thoughtful. Thanks again David. You've earned another Vers evagenlist!

    34. David Laituri Creator on December 13, 2012

      Should be any day now, everything was sent out last Thursday... holiday mailing volume is going up, so shipping times are getting longer.

    35. Yvonne
      on December 13, 2012

      I haven't received my 1Q in the mail yet - should I be concerned, or is this within the normal window of time for shipment?

    36. David Laituri Creator on December 11, 2012

      Great! Send us a photo of 1Q in Germany on our Facebook page!

    37. janschi on December 11, 2012

      I am impressed. Really beautiful to see and nice sound. The most professional kickstarter project so far to me. Received mine in Hamburg, Germany yesterday. Thank you for your afford! Rock on! :)

    38. David Laituri Creator on December 11, 2012

      Arthur - feel free to contact me at - I will make sure you are taken care of; a replacement will be on it's way tomorrow...

    39. Arthur Crook on December 11, 2012

      I got both the bamboo and the walnut. Both are beautiful! But the walnut will not come on at all. I tried reporting it thru Support, but that page is very buggy. Please help me as I am only going to be in the country for another 3 weeks.

      got both my bamboo 1q out of customs this morning and I love them. What a great product, well done and long live 1Q!

    41. Peter Wiklund on December 10, 2012

      all 6 1Q's just arrived and I couldn't be happier!!! I can't believe how small they are and the sound they put out. truly amazing! They are already rocking out my cubicle (of course plugged in and charging)

    42. Jens on December 10, 2012

      @David: Ignore my latest post, it colours steady white beautifully. I think it needed a while more :)

    43. David Laituri Creator on December 10, 2012

      Jens - Contact us at - would like to find out more...

    44. Jens on December 10, 2012

      Received my 1Q in The Netherlands. Packaging great, product great, sound great. Only one question. I've charged my 1Q for six hours now, but the color of the button is still steady red. What if it doesn't change to white?

    45. David Laituri Creator on December 10, 2012

      Great! Truly an international project! Send us a photo of 1Q in Moscow!

    46. Tatyana Kyul on December 10, 2012

      1Q was delivered on 5 December in Russia. Sounds astonishing, looks great, packaging arrangement and attention to details are beyond praise.
      Good work, Vers, thank you very much!

    47. Wilfried Pförtsch on December 7, 2012

      Yes, since today I have this powerful product in my home. The arrived during the last week, when I have been out for work in other parts of bavaria. Thanks for your support, customs tax was not obstacle. The Q's look great, well done work in perfect wood condition. Smart surface. Also astonishing sound out of this tiny carved wooden dices. I'm very happy about them. Voll des Lobes. Gute Arbeit - für alle die Holz lieben und für dessen nachhaltige Verwendung sind. These are products which we need for a better and responsibly usage of our earth and resources. Best wishes, thank you Wilfried Pförtsch

    48. Peter Wiklund on December 7, 2012

      Very excited to get my 1Q's. I assume until I receive a USPS tracking number mine haven't shipped since I'm in the US?

      You guys have completely rocked this KSer. Were it not for this project I may have never run across your company. I am very happy I did. You have a new customer and I hope to bring you many more.

    49. David Laituri Creator on December 7, 2012

      Ben - Yours is s Stereo Walnut, so it left approximately 11/27. 3 - 4 weeks is the rule, but Australia and NZ have gotten theirs in 14 - 16 days.

    50. Ben Gilbey on December 6, 2012

      Given that I'm international (Singapore) I'm still eagerly anticipating the delivery of my 1Q's, but I'd love to get a shipment/delivery estimate. Fingers crossed they'll get here before Xmas!!!! If there's anyway you can give me an update that'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Ben Gilbey
