The Final Batch

Posted by Frankenspiel Ltd. (Creator)

Hello everyone,

We will be a few weeks late on delivering the final batch.

For those of you who have already received your rewards, we can confirm that you will have the chance to upgrade, free of charge, to our new operating system. We will be in touch after the next update to organise this.

We know that our delays have damaged our credibility but we are doing everything we can to ensure you receive the best possible product. A product that will withstand the test of time.

It is either innovate and succeed to bring out multiple products in one intelligent system, or fall at the first hurdle, release the FS-X as it is and declare this project a failure. We are going to deliver and we are going to deliver a great deal more than we had initially promised.

The specific reason for this recent delay is because we have had to wait for one of our main chip suppliers to issue the final version of firmware. This firmware update does however carry significant improvements in the final product.

We will keep this update concise as we are sure you would like less talking and more delivering.

If you have not yet received your rewards and would like to change your address, please do so now. If you have lost your survey or you would like to view your current details please go to You can view your current details by logging into your BackerKit profile. If you cannot remember your password, please request a new survey using your Kickstarter email address or select ‘Forgot your password?’ on the login page.

Your next update will be no later than 4 weeks from now, Wednesday 12th October. However, we will update you beforehand if delivery is approaching.

All the best, 

The Frankenspiel Team

      Glad to be part of the "final batch"! That's a great way to support the people that genuinely believed in you and your product... Hope I can get my FS X before 2018

      Ervin, because kickstarter doesn't care, because kickstarter gets money regardless. This whole platform supports scammers to the point of ks itself being scammers.

      So people have brought this to kickstarter's attention?
      How come they're not compelled to take action...haven't got mine either.

    6. Marcus Sundman on

      You'll be "be a few weeks late"? You were already a few YEARS late!

      Final batch?? Haven't received my Speaker's yet. I get worried when I hear talk of final batches, and not a lot of people have received their speakers yet....

    8. Crispin

      @Josh Green: sorry, but I think you're trolling. You're a backer so you know this project is well over 2 years late, so a comment of "just be patient" is asking for trouble in these parts.

      If you really had speakers then you'd be kindly showing photos and/or a review of them here to give the rest of your fellow backers some peace of mind. You can use the website to upload photos for free and then share the links here, for example.

      You guys sound mad� I've got my pair of speakers and they're great and I've had 1 warranty replacement already sent through so stop stressing they're sending them out, be it very very slowly but they are doing it
      Just be patient

    10. Chris Means

      I think this is a social experiment for a crowdfunding site, just to see how long they can keep us engaged without actually delivering anything. I keep looking for a Study to be won't be good either.

    11. John H. Halpern, M.D.

      Can we please have an updated estimated date of shipping speakers out to Backers (you can give a range of time) AND FINALLY PHOTOS OF ALL THE SPEAKERS? Pretty please with sugar on top! PLEASE!!!

    12. Ahmad Nasrallah on

      hopefully i'm in the final batch because i didn't receive anything >.>

    13. Tiben on

      Groundhog day. Again.

    14. Edward Wilcox on

      Sigh... 2017 here we come. I gave up and got a JBL flip 3 on Amazon.

    15. Sami Kuhmonen on

      I once again suggest that everyone puts pressure on Kickstarter about this campaign. They have clear guidelines on being able to deliver something and as we can see Frankenspiel is not going to deliver. So please report this as a campaign that breaks rules.

      Kickstarter is being silent about this and not replying anything for some reason, probably because they got their money and can just be silent. But if enough people report this and ask them to explain how this is not a violation of Kickstarter rules they really have to notice.

      I'm seriously considering launching the KickDavidArcherStarter Kickstarter campaign, will be aiming to raise £20k or so, to post screenshots from the comments from this campaign overlaid over an image of the creator in as many advertising sites in his home neighbourhood as possible. Any backers?

    17. Zooik on

      Can we find out where they live?

    18. Ibo SixtyTwo on

      WOW!! I filled out the backerskit form... i hope it wont take "a few weeks" again^^

    19. Jovy Low on

      A few weeks. Ha. Ha. Ha. A few weeks which culminated to 2 years.

    20. Crispin

      It's the last 4 words that kill me... "if delivery is approaching."

      It's almost as if there isn't really a plan and timeline for delivery, but rather that there's about the same chance of delivery happening as "if the heavens open and a pile of speakers suddenly materialises in an explosion of rainbows".

      And just to correct a large error in this update, no of course we don't want a brief update; if the only thing we get from this project is a few laughs each month as we roll our eyes at the ever-increasingly ridiculousness of the excuses then I think that is the least that the creator can give us after this mess.

    21. Kirk Brownridge

      Isn't this a copy/paste of the last update?

    22. John H. Halpern, M.D.

      Less writing???? How about PHOTOS??????? You know...a picture is worth a thousand words.

    23. ben1680

      Final batch? The first batch is not even exist!!!
      All I know, what you've sent so far is just couple of flawed sample...

    24. Henrik Norberg on

      Damage to what credibility? Once you hit bottom you can't go lower (no need to prove me wrong...)

      The specific reason for this recent delay is because you are lying through your teeth you cretinous moron.

      Maikel Lodewijk on

      Hahahahaha LoL, first you say a couple of months ago that you are going to flash the new firmware, and now you say the new firmware isn't ready yet!? You guys are so full of bullshit!!!

      Fall at the first hurdle? You did fall at the first hurdle and all hurdles after that! Please stop making a fool out of yourself. Quit and leave kickstarter!!!

      What a load of bullshit! Damage your credibility? I didn't notice you having any left.
      Money back would be the only thing to restore the least bit of it, but it'll never happen, right?

    30. Robert Weiss on

      I kickstartered wireless Earplugs because I will never get my wireless speaker. They promise delivery in November, and the Project ended in August. Lets see who deliveres first. My bet is not on you Frankenspiel but I would love if you could prove me wrong.

      Michael S. on

      "a few weeks late" ... hey.. it's just a few weeks... other kickstarters don't deliver for YEARS. You guys are AWESOME!

      And some people already received rewards? Then I'm convinced that you guys will deliver the remaining upgraded boxes in NO TIME.

      Yea! Even LESS talking and FASTER Delivering. Can't believe how productive you COULD be if you wouldn't waste your time writing these 10 lines every month!

      And thanks for the extended opportunity to change the address. I actually moved TWICE during this campaign!

      Don't understand why you keep pretending. Just let it die and rest in peace, so we can finally move on. I know, most of the backers have already moved on, but I'm in for 3 pairs! :(

    32. ra66itz on

      Why the updates, why? Of they have a product or not, silence would be the best tactic in any case unless the update is everything is shipped.

    33. Lee Gibson on

      Final Batch?
      Has anyone actually received theirs?
      Or is this just another ruse?

    34. Danny Dierickx on

      It's the final count-down, duh-duh-duuuh-duh....

    35. Peter J on

      My opinion...
      This will not be delivered by Christmas. They do not have the product to hand and are waiting for supplier to provide firmware before shipping to the distribution points then customers. Early 2017 at best.

      So again no delivery in September?

      What a joke. I want my money back!!
