      Kudos to Swiss Audio for doing the right thing, unlike those aholes at Trinity Audio, but I am not sure a small start up can do wireless for the foreseeable future

      For mine, I am going to get The B&O e8. They have an impeccable audio reputation, buds are tunable through an app and have similar touch and transparency features as Swiss Audio. Also NMFI

      And as B&O you can send them back if they don’t work, unlike kickstarter projects

      Have anyone here seen the EOZ Air here on kickstarter and have any idea on how they compare? I see they use CSR8675 AptX-HD, but I wonder if the sound quality would be as good as the Swiss Audio, since they're not using NFMI. Also the antenna is on the outside, while Swiss Audio will be using LDS antennas. Will this change performance?

      Thank you for your your honesty. This is an unfortunate set back that I'm sure the team will resolve in time to deliver a stable, quality product. I look forward to hearing back from you when you have solved this issue and I promise to make sure to invest when this project restarts.

      @creator will a PCB change to support an LDS antenna still be required if you go with Bluetooth 4.2?

      Es ist sehr mutig aber auch traurig, dieses Projekt abzubrechen. Peinlich, dass es ausgerechnet die hochgelobte Schweizer Ingenieurskunst nicht schafft und einfach die Flinte ins Korn wirft. Bin sehr enttäuscht!

      I understand your situation and am very appreciative of your openness. Please keep me informed of any progress going forward. The product looks great and am hopeful it may reappear in some form in the future

      Canceling the project before funding close was an honorable thing to do. When you resolve the antenna problem and if you come back to kickstarter I will be among the first to consider pledge again. Keep up the work on this unique hybrid invention.

    17. mark on

      Would be cool if you could implement a bi weekly blog on your website to let us know your progress in future months leading to coming back to Kickstarter maybe also contact backers in order they backed to when live on Kickstarter. All the best

      Respect for pulling the plug rather then stringing backers along and hoping the problem resolves itself. One of my main desires was to have no signal dropping, and should the product have been delivered with this issue in it, I would not have been happy.

      Should you resolve the issue and restart your campaign, I will back it again.
      Good Luck!

      Just curious
      Isn't the reason of having LDS antenna is to prevent signal dropping? And not to extend range?
      Range is extended in Bluetooth 5 (BLE though, same distance as 4.2 in classic)
      But tested it by having the phone inside the house then going out with the earbuds?
      I think it is normal to drop since music playback is done via Bluetooth Classic and not LE that has longer range

      Nooooo! For once that I managed a super early backer!!!

      Jokes aside, thanks for the update, guys. I do understand and respect your choice, however I agree with PortableCreator in saying that maybe canceling it's a bit extreme? Maybe you could just update the timeline allowing for more time to find the right solution for the Bluetooth issue? (TBH I don't think at this moment there are any wireless earbuds which connection is stable outdoor...)
      Anyway, let us know how things develop :) All the best!

      @creators Well bummer. I hope you guys keep trying to fix the problem. I think there are alot of us still wanting to see this project be successful. Im hoping you'll be able to let us backers (former) know if you decide to start this again. Thanks for not stringing us along with lies. It happens way to much on Kickstarter. Now get to work fixing it and ket us know when your ready. Dwayne

      Please come back with better results, will back again. Better than those crowdfrauding getting the money then keep change specification and making excuses for not sending and folded with backer money, check Popslate2 in IGG.

      Why cancel?, there is no need to do so
      Delays are known here in KS, (almost all of the projects I have backed is delayed, except from raspi.tv of course), being transparent to us is great, but cancelling because of the delay is just sad
      I hope you will relaunch very soon
      I am (and obviously everyone who backed this project) looking forward seeing how great your product will improve in the future :)

      @creators, the recent update breaks my heart. I think by far, you are the first one to really accept risk. You care your customers deeply, and the backers, including me, will surely fund the next campaign that you will start next time. You are a great company, keep trying, we will support you :)

      Melville Pinto on

      My suggestion is you offer a white with gold trim set and put it up on your Kickstarter project page alongside the black with silver trim ones. I am going to guess you will see a significant uptake in backers!

      Agreed, no need to rush the reviews, some features are prototypes,so it is untested, unlike what others have done (which already had the final design and no longer wanted to proceed with changes, just like Zolo did) which ended up in a mediocre quality (as mentioned in the CNET review)
      This is Kickstarter, not pre-order, so expect changes, delays, many of the projects here are delayed because of many circumstances
      The @Creators are doing what they can to bring quality products (HIFI + Apt-X) is already a dream come true for me who are always on the go, plus they are implementing the application of the LDS antenna

      Plus they are posting updates about the improvements in the specs, which is not affected by stretch goal, but of OUR requests, which is the best part of being open to all of us

      @Backers, I think it is better to perfect a product first than adding addition features. Try standing in their shoes, adding features. yes, it will make backers happy, but the risk increases. Do you want a usable stable earbuds that function really well or a earbuds packed with features while having some connecting issues or buttons issues?

      Keep in mind that adding feature will cost money + " IT WILL DELAY" the entire delivery process, and usually, many backers "HATE" this delay.

      - This is my opinion :)

      I will be backing out before the end if I have not seen a review.

      You can have some influence; You have sent them equipment and you are quite capable of talking to them and ensuring they know how much you would value their feedback prior to the KS deadline such that you would publish ... warts and all their feedback.

      @All We hear you on $300'000 Stretched Goal for the Champagne versions. We do not see this as an un reachable goal, in fact Kicktraq Trends indicates similar figure. Let's first see where we end with additional pledges. Then, we decide at end which versions will be available in the Backerkit Survey.
