      @Trogdor: Thanks again for your help:) I paid for a faster shipping fee since I was excited to try it out.
      @Brian: I bought it from a backer so I got it at a 50% KS discount. Hehehe. I was actually in touch with HeadBones and they were offering 40% off. They hadn't sent me my invoice yet and the KS deal was better so I grabbed it instead.

      It's a good product. I've finished two audio books with it. I've have a total of 20 hours of listening time. I had originally planned on using it for running. However, having played with it, I don't think it'll be comfortable using it while running. Also, rough movements of the head will play havoc with the quality of sound you get.
      I'm happy with the product. However, like all products, there are limitations. You can't hear anything if you are driving on the freeway with your windows open. The jack on it is a great idea. However, I wish it could be louder. In terms of maximizing the volume of the unit itself, it starts vibrating too much. I have a Note 4 and it has a set limit. When I opted to exceed it, I think my earwax started rolling out of my ears. Hehehe.
      However, I love it since I can now listen to my audiobooks while walking around the house doing chores and I can hear my family calling me or talking to me. I would recommend it as long as the buyer understands that it isn't for audiphiles, people who love loud music, and running amongst other things. It's just for relaxed listening while having situational awareness.

      @brian
      I got an early bird from the project itself. @MF bought one from someone who wished to sell theirs.
      .
      You can either scan the thread for the project and see who may be selling -or- write project creator with proof of backing this project and request a 50% discount from web site price.

      Would at least like my tshirt

    6. Creator Christopher Gasparovic 3 days ago

      I need to update my shipping address. Any thoughts on when my unit will ship? Where should I send the address information?

    7. Creator Evan Owen 3 days ago

      I am still really excited to receive this product, I can understand the issues with manufactures and the board redesign. All in all I think this will be a better product once it's shipped to us then if they went with all of the original specs and designs.

      Yeah it's late but so what? I backed the Agent Smart watch and that thing seems useless compared to the other products that are out there (Pebble, Android wear, ect...) and it still hasn't even shipped. I believe if Sound Band actually creates a decent product their competition is still very small. Meaning the Sound Band will still be very relevant and useful!

      This isn't really pointed directly to anyone but just keep in mind that this is in fact a Kickstarter... Not a store. If you wanted things to come quickly you should of just bought something from Amazon or Best Buy.

      @MF
      Wow - that was fast shipping [unless you were local] :)

    9. Creator MF Calub 4 days ago

      @Wai Chan: I was able to get in touch with them through their support email. You may want to double check the email address you are using. They're pretty busy though. They just sent out their second batch of HeadBones and the CEO is traveling for the next few days. They're cool folks.

      I ended up buying a unit with Trogdor's help to speed up the process. It's quite good but volume is pretty low. If you like your music loud or your an audiophile, then it won't be a match for you. However, I am enjoying mine. I was able to use it for 4 hours straight today listening to an audiobook. Soundbleed was nonexistent since I figured out the sweet spot. It does start vibrating if you exceed the recommended maximum volume of your phone. I have a galaxy note 4. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.

    11. Creator Hannes Brandstätter 6 days ago

      As some mentioned before, Headbones by damson audio offers a discount for soundband backers. I just got mine and it works great. If you want the discount, contact their support with a proof of backing this here...

      @Kevin K

      We have a better chance of finding bigfoot then Joe Thiel ever producing this product or taking true accountability for his actions. The fact that we haven't seen anything not computer generated (which is against KS terms to share only computer gen. material), blurry, or pre-dma solution is ridiculous. If I were in their position then I'd be pushing that info out anywhere I could. It would sort of be like a "HA HA TOLD YOU SO" kind of thing. With all of the bad press and everything else going wrong in this project, you would think that he would want that info out there. Instead we got the news through the same news media (which I really think did another lacking job at putting facts out there and not just taking Joe's side) and we still have nothing visually to show for it. Then I also remembered that they're only making 10 beta units with 12 backers and non are active (there was one but I think they have since disappeared; originally brought up by Roy I believe). This whole thing could have easily been avoided should Joe Thiel have had the common decency to let those of us that felt scammed out of this project. Now the list just keeps growing and growing. We've come a long way from us original 0.18% to where the current count may lie. Not to mentioned any google search of Joe Thiel's name will pull them here and show his shady practices.

      @Joe

      Are you ready to let us out yet? Or will you continue to play the "we're working on it" card? You set yourself yet another deadline for the beta test results in your last update over a month ago. Will you keep to the deadline or will you miss this one as you have missed your many others? Tick tock Joe, Tick Tock.

    13. Creator Kevin K 6 days ago

      @Paul Christopher - More importantly than that, they can't even post blurry images of tools or prototypes. The last time we saw something that wasn't a screenshot was Update # 44, posted on June 11, 2014. The prototype we saw at that point was pre-DMA solution and numerous other changes. You would think that they have something to show for those 9 months, but it remains more elusive than Joe Thiel.

    14. Creator Paul Christopher 6 days ago

      Posted in the last update (that was posted over a month ago) after thinking some about this project:

      Something I have always found interesting about this project is the creators (Joe Thiel & imaginary teams) inability to upload an image that is easily readable. I have never once seen a creator fail to provide quality images that are easily readable in any of my other projects. This speaks volumes as to the people "making" this product. It just adds to the thoughts of Joe Thiel being a shady business man and that this product is nothing more than vaporware that Roy has mentioned many times before.

    15. Creator John McAthey on March 18

      Last update, again, over a month ago...
      Can we get some pixelated images of random scans of a product idea so we can feel like the project is making progress?

      thanks.

    16. Creator MF Calub on March 18

      Thanks Trogdor! Just sent him an email.

    17. Creator Trogdor on March 18

      May need to check your spam. Sometimes throw away emails go there. Price of privacy I guess.

    18. Creator Trogdor on March 18

      Done. Good luck!

    19. Creator MF Calub on March 18

      No worries. Email sent. Thanks!

    20. Creator Trogdor on March 18

      ok, that service appears to not be working...weird. Used it in the past...
      Old tried and true then...
      soundband (at) sharklasers (dot) com

      I just tested that one and it worked. Sorry for inconvenience...

    21. Creator MF Calub on March 17

      Just sent you an email. Thanks! I need to delete that twitter account before I start getting more junkmail in my junkmail email addy. lol

    22. Creator MF Calub on March 17

      I just sent him a tweet. Not sure if it worked. I'll just email you instead. I'm not comfortable with that medium. It seems so spammy. lol. Either that or I'm getting old.

    23. Creator Trogdor on March 17

      @MF
      The person reached out to me on twitter. I have his gmail addy. If you'd rather not set up twitter you can write me at: soundband_stinks (at) filzmail (dot) com.

      That email is a 24 hour throw away. I will check it from time to time and give you his/her email via that account. Then you two can work it out from there.

    24. Creator MF Calub on March 17

      @Trogdor thanks! I'll have to create an account there since I've never used that before. I'll do that as soon as I get to a computer.

    25. Creator Trogdor on March 17

      @MF -- see other forms for way to msg. him.

    26. Creator Trogdor on March 17

      Done - not sure how I missed that....

    27. Creator MF Calub on March 17

      @Trogdor- it's in the general comments section in KS. It's currently 4th one down. Name is Christian Hresko. Thanks!

    28. Creator Trogdor on March 17

      @MF
      Quickly scanned the headbonze forum, didn't see the person you mention. If you can give a name, I'll jump in and make a post...

    29. Creator MF Calub on March 17

      @Trogdor or anyone who backed the HeadBone: there's a guy interested in selling his unit. I'm interested in checking it out. If you can hook us up would appreciate it :)

    30. Creator Dave H. on March 15

      Chris C,

      I would suspect that the Bluetooth certification would need to be part of any FCC submission, so that process would need to be underway right about now.

      There isn't a creator on the planet who wouldn't be all over their update section announcing certification submissions/approvals. Furthermore, there isn't an honest creator who's product is two years behind schedule that wouldn't be updating regularly as their product progresses towards being ready to ship to the first set of backers.

      I note that you are not sitting on the edge of your seat and I find that to be a prudent decision on your part.

      As for the pictures of the device, don't hold your breath. I suspect the same problem will surface as it did with the collage - Hybra has not yet had time to create a camera capable of producing photographs of sufficient resolution and quality that can be posted at a size larger than postage stamp. Obviously Hybra would prefer to send backers rotating holographic images of the SB to be in keeping with the cutting edge technology of the device itself.

      Remember everyone, after removing the outer packaging, peeling away the chocolate covering and cracking open the oval shaped protective plastic case, please note the warning that the SB device contains small parts that may pose a choking hazard to small children.

    31. Creator Chris C on March 15

      @Dave H
      I would say there's probably two bidders, hence the update only claiming intensions to build 10 rather than 12 units. :-)
      That said, come mid April it's going to be very hard to claim they have sent units to beta testers without showing extensive pictures / video to us all.

      Also lets not forget they will have to get FCC certification and that process is verifiable once an application is submitted.
      Strangely enough, nothing submitted as yet and my understanding is that you would need to do this prior to sending out units to beta testers ????
      I guess I must be mistaken ????

    32. Creator Dave H. on March 14

      Chris C et Al,

      In all this time there has only been one person who has come forward and identified themselves as being a pledge at the beta tester level. This person I believe may have removed themselves from receiving a prototype, paving the way for Joe to announce project advancement to the beta testing stage. It looks like Hybra is free to beta test the non-existent device themselves among the 11 other non-existent beta testers.

      Does anyone wish to step forward and dispel the belief that all of the 11 listed beta testers are anything but shill accounts created by a dishonest company to promote pledges during a fraudulent campaign?

    33. Creator MF Calub on March 14

      @Trogdor: lol. I have a bunch of KS stuff in my drawer gathering dust. Neptune Pine and Omate are some of them. Yeah, I'm giving them to my nephews this summer. :)
      Have a great weekend!

    34. Creator Trogdor on March 13

      @MF
      Just give the one you don't like as much as a birthday or holiday gift. It's not as if they look used if you're careful. Take care - have a good weekend.

    35. Creator MF Calub on March 13

      @Trogdor: Yeah, I also snagged an EB1 so hopefully they'll send it in May. I may just get the Headbones as well. It'll only be about $100. Hoe that includes the charging case. I already sent them a request for both. That's it for headphones for me. lol

    36. Creator Trogdor on March 13

      @MF
      The glasses form factor is a bit better -- but unless you've got clear lenses then you're wearing sun glasses all the time. The pads on the glasses would be significantly smaller too. Not sure of the impact there but I would guess smaller surface = less bass.
      I'm also in for an early bird glasses...should see it next month. I don't get all the perks, but don't really care as I'll just buy the add'l lenses if I want 'em.
      -
      Yeah - I've got too many headphones too...and pens....and watches I didn't yet receive. I am rethinking a lot of things here. Fortunately my friends/family don't care if something is opened, as long as it is cool [don't give the in-ear ones as gifts :P] -- so in a way I guess it is holiday/birthday shopping in advance.

    37. Creator MF Calub on March 13

      @trogdor- yes, it was mine. I tried waiting for you but let it go around midnight my time. Lucky I waited long enough. Glad you checked at the right time. Good luck with that.

      I also backed Roy's sunglasses. I'm debating if I should get that instead of the Headbones. I have an upcoming business trip and if they can guarantee that I'll get it before then then I may just opt for the sunglasses. We'll see see. I've backed too many headphones so I'm only getting one of them. Just have to figure out which form factor is best.

    38. Creator Chris C on March 13

      In 4 weeks the Beta testers, hopefully ALL 12 of them, should be in receipt of a working Soundband Prototype.
      If I was a betting man I would say ........

      Dame it, just noticed the mid April latest statement does not indicate a year.

    39. Creator Trogdor on March 13

      @MF
      You looked at the sunglasses roy mentioned 2 posts ago? Same concept but in sunglasses.
      I used the headbonze about 2 hours total now. I bent them a bit so they don't fit so tightly.
      They also don't go as loud as you'd think...but they're different and they work.

      Also -- don't forget about the 50% off deal they have if you mention you backed this project. It was mentioned a bit down in these comments and also on the headbonze comments.

      Take care!

    40. Creator Trogdor on March 13

      @MF
      Just popped in as I was up to do some work-- I snagged an early bird...perhaps yours? Thanks for the offer though!

    41. Creator royblumenthal on March 13

      The sunglasses project mentioned by @Benjamin DoyleDoyle a few comments below has something interesting just above the FAQ section of the front page of the campaign...

      "March 4th 2015 - Introducing 100% Delivery Guarantee

      "Our Guarantee To You, Our Loyal Backers, An Announcement!

      "You may have read or seen in the press about Crowdfunding websites offering an Insurance policy for your pledged money in a Project.

      "Well, we don't think it's something that has any place in crowdfunding as you, the Backers, put your trust into the hands of complete strangers in the hope of receiving a Reward.

      "You also pledge your funds in the hope of receiving it in the month that you signed up for. As we are Backers before we were Creators, we know of Projects that are often delayed by months, years or not ever sending their Reward or answering messages!

      "Today we'd like to announce something new that has ever been done on a crowdfunded project:

      "The 100% Delivery Promise at no cost for Backers.

      "What we are offering is a Refund on your Reward if we fail to ship within 30 days of the promised date, in full. Period. No gimmicks. No small print. No exceptions.

      "We feel that we are capable of shipping your pledge to you at the stated month and that if we don't you can ask for a full Refund. The Guarantee is free for all Backers."

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/maumau/hi-tech-sunglasses-headphones-no-more-earphones-or

      I wonder which no-hoper, fraudulent, piece-of-crap, lying, scumsucking, deadbeat, dad-of-the-year they might be referring to when they talk about campaigns that don't respond to messages and delay for years?

    42. Creator MF Calub on March 12

      @Trogdor: Thanks! I'll be getting it then. I'm backing out of the laser headphone project since they won't have the heart rate monitor. Do you want my spot? I'm an early backer at $127. I'm waiting on a few headsets now and getting it doesn't make sense for me if HR is not included. I'll check back in exactly an hour since I have to eat dinner. We can time my cancelation so you can get it if you're interested. It's 20:20 pacific right now. I'll check back in an hour.

      Please copy-and-paste this list, including the header above, and this preamble, and add your Kickstarter username to the top of the numbered section.
      Over the months, many people in these forums have publicly requested a refund from Hybra Advance Technology Inc / Joe Thiel. These requests have been easy to miss, because there are thousands of comments.
      Also, whenever someone Googles this product, or its originators, this list appears in the search results. A case of "reaping what you sow".

      @MF
      I've got 10 minutes into the headbonze.
      I'm in a sort of transition phase while I get used to them. I notice they need to fit a lit more tightly than I'd like...but I still have some bending to do.
      --
      Sound quality -- not as good as ear headphones but very acceptable. Bass is more felt than heard [that takes a bit of getting used to]. I can't say it's terribly accurate but it's better than you'd think it would be. Treble works much better than I would have thought,
      I'm a fan of EDM [Trance] and these suffice for casual listening. Voice is clear, sounds are clear. I will say the sound seems more 'distant' as if listening a bit farther away than you're used to.
      --
      On the note 3 the signal is solid for at least 10 feet. Most of the complaints I see are with apple devices and there is known BT complaints there for years.
      --
      For walking/riding a bike, they stay put. They fit pretty tightly. Also note that you have to find the sweet spot to place these and bend until you're satisfied with the overall fit.
      --
      For what I paid, I'm pretty happy with the overall experience. It is different...and will be in addition to my go-to headphones.

      @Trogdor: would love to hear your thoughts on it. Wondering how they would actually hold up to running and cycling. Hope you don't get the BT hangup some people are experiencing.

      @JEB
      Reviews aren't great. Lots of breakage and cracks -- with reviewers commenting that these are known issues.

      Having said that, Headbones KS project showed up today. Will mess with them when I get home. [inserting generic comment about how Hybra hasn't yet delivered...]

      Consolidated List of People Wanting A Sound Band Refund

      ---------------------------------------------------
      Please copy-and-paste this list, including the header above, and this preamble, and add your Kickstarter username to the top of the numbered section.
      Over the months, many people in these forums have publicly requested a refund from Hybra Advance Technology Inc / Joe Thiel. These requests have been easy to miss, because there are thousands of comments.
      Also, whenever someone Googles this product, or its originators, this list appears in the search results. A case of "reaping what you sow".
