Have a question?
Sorry is everything ok?
So are we looking at delivery in June? July?
Hi Davide, we should be posting an update tomorrow. Shipping tracking shows the sample package has reached NJ Distribution Center currently. We will be able to provide more information tomorrow evening. Thanks.
Hi, any update?
Hi John and Álvaro, thanks for the follow up and your interest and participation! The manual correction / adjustment did not work too well, and after inspecting samples from that round, the slider retooling has been proceeded with. We are expecting to receive the sample next week, will update soon when we are able to inspect the same. I understand it appears like a quiet weeks have passed at the outset, but it's been a dizzy blur for us: the nature of these works in such it involves a lot of back and forth, and in this case it involved employing another outside vendor by the manufacturer, so managing information and workflow between the various entities, as also shipping of physical samples from one to the other for each round, apart from the negotiation on revised costs, and transfer, and then getting them to prioritize it over successive schedules on their pipeline, we have had a continuous stream of activities, and small everyday challenges along the way. More soon!
Do we have any news on the product? It's been almost a month since the last update...
@creator, how did the retooling go?
Thanks for your message. We were just working on posting an update detailing the same, and we understand your concern, and appreciate you reaching out. We have indeed faced some setbacks on the tooling output, the sample we received had some inconsistencies with the design, and we are working on resolving the same with the manufacturer. We are still waiting on some information / confirmation, and you will have the more detailed update later tonight or in the morning. Rest assured, we are on it, and we are fully committed to delivering Podbudy to our beloved backers. Thank you!
Hi Comfortech. Your original timeline anticipated an April, 2018 delivery. Since it is now April 16, and end of April is only 2 weeks away, can you give us, your faithful backers, an update on where you are in the process? If you're on schedule, we'd like to know! If you are behind schedule, we'd still like to know as early as possible what your revised schedule is and what challenges you faced that were not expected. Thank you.
Hi John, we are working on setting it up. We'll have the survey sent out, and post an update to let everyone know. Thanks!
@creator have the surveys gone out?
Hi Alvaro, we will be sending it out this coming Mon :) Thanks too!
Hi! When can we expect the Backerkit survey to choose colours? Thanks!
Hi Mark, yes tooling is on progress. We hit a couple of snaps, but we have worked around it. We should ship out by April end. Happy Easter!
Wanted to check to see if the delivery date of next month is still on target.
Hi Lea, thanks for your support. Yes you will certainly be able to select multiple colors on the final survey through Backerkit :)
For those of us that will be receiving multiple Podbudies, it would be awesome if we could select multiple colours so that each person I gift them to will have their own unique colour.
Thanks so much! :)
Just wanted to say I love your guys' product. Super simple and easy to use. Best of luck for the future!

Thanks for taking the time to participate! The unofficial mid-campaign survey accepting responses now is only to indicate the color you plan to choose, to help us gauge the overall numbers for each color. Also to see what color might get designated as the "Classic" by backers.
Your color choice submitted there is NOT final, as stated on the survey page. You can always change your color choice on the OFFICIAL fulfillment survey, where you will also submit your shipping information. I hope that clarifies.
Once again, thanks for taking the time to participate and update your preference. Thank you!
So I got these for my girlfriend and took the survey for colors. I selected a color that she did not like. I have since gone and submitted the survey for the correct color. She would like to have the Ruby color. Will the Ruby color ship or the previous selection?
Hi Katia, excellent question. No prob at all using Podbudy with glasses! Infact I use them everyday with mine. Here's me wearing Podbudy with glasses :) http://podbudy.us/withglasses
As you can see from the snap, Podbudy clings very close to your ears, so the glasses tend to go over them, and there's hardly any inconvenience or obstruction, and you wouldn't notice any difference in wearing your glasses with your Podbudy on. Neither does wearing glasses impact the grip on Podbudy.
How well do these sit when I'm wearing glasses? Under, over the earpieces?
Thanks for the question, and for your immediate response to the informal survey we sent out. For the purposes of this survey, please feel free to submit multiple votes on your name to match with your pledge tier (we have not limited the survey to one response).
This unofficial survey mid-campaign is only to give us an indication of the colors liked by backers.
Please note that you will be able to choose multiple colors for your pledge on the final official survey post-campaign during fulfillment.
How do I put my color choices on your survey if I am to revive multiple podbudy’s
Hi Robert, thanks for your question. I see that you pledged during our early bird deals, where all the pledge tiers had color choices, so yours will too. We have late bird deals running now for those who missed the early bird deals, at the same price, on the Classic, while the KS Special slabs all have color choices. The next tier now on these will be the next immediate one: a KS Special on the same on a Late Bird pledge, or next tier Late Bird on a KS Special pledge. Thanks for your support.
I have a BackerClub/BackersHub question. If one selects an option with a choice of color, is the next tier another Podbudy also with a choice of color, or an additional Podbudy all in the Classic color?
Hi Jerry, thanks for your support! Great question. As mentioned in the pledge description, we will designate the color that most backers vote for as their preferred one, as the "classic". We plan to do this via survey at the close of the campaign so that all backers have the opportunity to participate.
Hi. What color is considered classic?
Thanks for the kind words, Sophie! The support and enthusiasm Podbudy has received from backers like yourself has meant the world to us. Appreciate your support.
My earphones always fall out when I go on my run..I needed this all so long!! Can’t wait to get my set!
Hi Robert, thanks for supporting Podbudy!
Zanco is a very cool product! Podbudy works with most earphones, and indeed, any phone ;) I don't believe Zanco comes with earphones, so it would really be down to what you use.
Can this be good for Zanco tiny t1?
Hi Brehan, glad Podbudy caught your attention. Excellent question! Podbudy has 3 earphone docks (slots) of differing sizes to accommodate most earphones. The thinnest one measures 2.3mm, while the widest one measures 6.2mm in its unopen closed position, so Podbudy works best with earphones that fall within this range. We have tested Podbudy with earphones ranging from 2.2mm to 6.6mm on its stem for a firm grip. Hope this helps!
I have many different types of headphones and buds. By looking at these they appear the would work with harder buds or headphones pieces. Would they work on less rigid wired headphone like Beats [which come both in round and flat no tangle wire], thinner wireless necklace style like LG [generally having a bud on a thin thread] or the fatter total in ear buds [the majority of earbuds, i.e. Liberty+]. I do have Apple headphones and they appear like they would work on great, but just trying to determine how.many I would need.
Jennifer, we're delighted to have you here, and thanks so much for your support and enthusiasm for Podbudy! :) We really appreciate it.
