      What is going on???
      Y’all have ignored our requests and comments.
      What is the status of the devices?
      I’m filing a complaint with Kickstarter.
      I want the devices we ordered,

      Hey Jeffrey.. A status update is way overdue. Please post an update soon!

      Could we please have an update, I was hoping to have this 2 years ago now.
      I know things can over run but I expect by now you have probably spent all of our money on the development phase, are we going to see a product?

    12. Mark A. Lacy on October 16

      It’s time to get Kickstarter involved!

    13. Mark A. Lacy on September 26

      Please, tell us what is going on? Status on shipping date?

      Jeffrey, I asked for a refund on 8th of July via private Kickstarter message. Did not hear anything from You since then. Jeffrey, may I ask for the refund once again?

    15. Mark A. Lacy on August 7, 2017

      Update please?
      Shipping yet?

      I like the JackPair and look forward to getting it, but it is humorous, as John notes, that both new HTC (U11) and iPhones no longer has a mini jack.
      Wires are better for security though, but it does move this product more and more over to a desktop or speciality case tool, where you insist on bringing an USB-C to minijack converter and headphones with a minijack, rather than the usual earpods.

      Still works with most tablets though, securing the data stream :)
      Quality over speed, though the time is ticking for the mini jack in smartphones.

    17. Jeffrey Chang & the AWIT team Creator on June 22, 2017

      We've just done with latest software changes and working on integration tests now. I'll post more update with good news soon.

      That being said, we understand that the project has been delayed much longer than we had expected. If you'd like to cancel your pledge, please send me a private KS message, and we'll issue your full refund.

    18. Oldschool Shadowrunner on June 16, 2017

      Morning Jeffrey Chang & the AWIT team,
      How about an update? If this takes much longer I am going to be requesting my money back.

      By the time this comes out it will be built into all cell phones.. 3 YEARS! Come on. IPhones don't have headphone jacks anymore this project is becoming obsolete before its even delivered!

    21. Rolf Virtanen on April 25, 2017

      Please refund my pledge. Thank you, and hope u guys all the best.

    22. Jeffrey Chang & the AWIT team Creator on March 23, 2017

      I apologize for the hold-up on updates. We really wanted to make the milestone of shipment, and had tried very hard to fix up all the issues. It took us a while to realize that we need a few more months, but not weeks, to get the job done right. I'll make sure our project management is more realistic and to update more frequently. Thanks for all your support!!!

    23. Oldschool Shadowrunner on March 18, 2017

      This is becoming ridiculous... Estimated delivery was Dec 2014. We are in March 2017.

    24. Mark A. Lacy on March 17, 2017

      Ok, enough is enough. People it time to take action.
      We are now into March going into April....
      I feel like there is stalling going on. I want the product as promised I DON'T want a refund I want the product!

    25. Jeffrey Chang & the AWIT team Creator on February 27, 2017

      Sorry guys, we're still fighting with bugs and quality issues at the production line. I had wished to get the shipment going before my next detailed update, and now have to reassess the schedule and make an update.

      --- Jeffrey

    26. Mark A. Lacy on February 23, 2017

      Cmon guys? What gives?? Please?
      It is going into March 2017, when can we expect shipment?

    27. Michael K. on February 16, 2017

      This is ridiculous!! Come on Jeff!!

    28. Chaitanya V Cotha on January 17, 2017

      When can we expect delivery

    29. Jeffrey Chang & the AWIT team Creator on January 15, 2017

      Sorry for the delay; we've been trying to get everything done over the holidays, and are very close to shipment now. Our factory is in Silicon Valley, California, so our shipment won't be stuck with Chinese New Year, and we will try to get it shipped by then. I will have more update soon.

      Last news was in November.
      I suppose that you are now stuck with
      Chinese New Year.
      But It would be great to get some news...
      I'm starting to doubt that this project will reach completion.

      Hi, can we have an update?

    32. Jeremy Maurice on January 8, 2017

      What is the status? This project was funded in 2014 and we're now in 2017.

    33. Mark A. Lacy on December 15, 2016

      Please tell us the status on shipment?? It is now the middle of December 2016, Can you give me a date for shipment?

      Thank You

    34. John, Rachel, and Eric on October 19, 2016

      Please refund my pledge. Almost 2 years behind is enough for me. Technology changes too quickly and I sincerely doubt this device will be relevant if it ever reaches me...

      Hi, I have recently wrote you an email asking you to change delivery address from France to Germany. Here's the confirmation. Regards. Artem

    36. Mark A. Lacy on September 15, 2016

      I am losing my patience! I have sent repeated e-mails and I get no response.
      e-mail me at I need to give you my change of address for delivery AND I need my reference number from my original purchase.

    37. Mark A. Lacy on September 12, 2016

      I cant find my reference number! We are going back to the beginning of the project!
      Mark A. Lacy
      please e-mail me at I have an address change and I was one of the first 100 for the "Double Pack for Early Birds" I do have a e-mail copy confirming my purchase.

    38. Jeffrey Chang & the AWIT team Creator on August 12, 2016

      Hi, guys,

      Sorry for the late reply. We're focusing on getting the product out of the door. We've make quite a few breakthrough in the past months; but there's still quite a few tuning & testing to be done, and it'll take us another month or two to wrap up everything. I'm posting a detailed update this week. Stay tuned.

      Hi Jeffrey and team..

      End of July is coming up quick. An update on the shipping schedule would be nice.

      Hi Jeffrey..

      The ship date of end-April has now been missed and really we should have seen a new update from you by now. Backers have waited through many delays on this project already, but missing an estimated ship date without even an update is really no good. Please post an update soon!

    45. Ashish Gulhati
      on April 24, 2016

      Hi guys..

      End of April is coming up soon, which is when the last update said you expected to be shipping. Could you post a new update please with the latest status?


    46. John
      on April 18, 2016

      I am not worried about this project. There are others I am involved with that are much more money and have gone longer. I have been burned a few times but I think that goes with the Territory.

      In the grand scheme of things I think this will work out. Its always hard to wait for something you want.
      Good Luck to all involved... Positive feedback may just be the little encouragement someone needs to push through a problem...

      Jeff must be busy. The last update I received, when I emailed him directly was March 18. Here is the text:

      Thanks for checking in. Since our last update in January, we have fixed more issued based on our field test results, and are now undergoing another major lift to make JackPair rock. I'll post more updates in the coming weeks, when the dusts are settles.

      Hey guys,

      could we please get an update on how the development is going with the new voice codec and how things are going generally?

      That'd be swell.

    49. Mark A. Lacy on March 19, 2016

      Syre Kron is correct about Diffie-Hellman.
      I remember reading an abstract about this about a year ago. I just found the paper.
