      And they logged in once again today and guess what?! STILL NOTHING! Jeez Joe Thiel, it's great to see you as a "changed man". You really are "different". Changed my ass, you're still the same person you were when you made the "lives in their mothers basements" comment. So Joe Thiel, what came of the "beta test" that "happened" mid last month? Where are our results from that "test", or was that another of your false promises? It's amazing that you can't even keep good to your own promises. A man is nothing if he cannot honor his commitments, so I guess that makes you less than a man.

      Dear Joe...

      I'm not fully understanding this situation.

      I'm just a NORMAL backer. I didn't pledge at the BETA TESTER level!

      I suspect the blokes in your shipping department might’ve made a huge mistake!

      They've sent me the same beta test unit they've sent to all the REAL beta testers!

      I'm kinda guessing that the other normal backers are going to be really pissed off about this, so I'm not going to open the package. I'm going to send it straight back to you. I don't want to be singled out for special attention.

      What address should I send my non-existent beta unit to?

      Since it doesn't exist, can I send it to one of the other backers?

      Or to Mars?

      Will you let me know if you receive it there?

      Sincerely
      Roy

    3. Creator Kazuma 5 days ago

      What happened to the "alleged" beta testers for this crap? Did anyone ever received their beta units?

    4. Creator Paul Christopher 7 days ago

      Hey look, after more than a month, they logged in yesterday. Did we receive an update or any comments? Hell no. I'm surprised there are still kool aid drinkers that think we'll receive this product.

    5. Creator Johan Timman on May 18

      Please Sound Band Team, keep us informed, even a disappointment is information. Don't let us, people who still trust you, down.

    6. Creator Felix Heberle on May 17

      It is so funny that there are still backers out there who believe this is going to be shipped!

    7. Creator Paul Christopher on May 15

      Month since last update. Am I shocked? Hell no. I actually expect them to fail on their own promises. Still nothing about the "beta test" that was supposed to be known like two weeks ago.

      Had to repost, was to good to pass

      From : The Alamo on April 28

      Some blasts from the past:
      1) Sound Band is the first of its kind to deliver audio in stereo while leaving your ears open to your surroundings, just like Mother Nature intended!.............NOT
      2) Surface sound suspension has finally been perfected. Audio is amazing. We nailed it! ......Lie
      3) Sound Band's design provides a completely unique user experience, one that you will never forget.......GOT THAT RIGHT, WE WILL NEVER FORGET THIS GOAT ROPE.
      4) I think we can say it again, we nailed it! ...... LIE
      5) The Hybra team truly believes in the power of the Kickstarter community, and now we would like for you to join us in spreading the word about Sound Band. I WONDER IF HE LIKES HOW SOUNDBAND IS REPRESENTED ON THE NET.
      6) Check out our website: www.SoundBand.com.........LOL, NON EXISTANT
      7) P20 steel production tooling are all complete. ........ LIE
      8) Gerber files, schematics, and wiring diagrams are all finished. ........LIE
      9) We want you to know what is going on, so we vow to keep you in the loop. ...... YEAH, RIGHT.
      10) Regarding the product itself, there aren't really any risks and challenges remaining. .......LIE
      11) However, there are a few loose ends to tie up......LOL, YOU REALLY MEAN, DESIGN THE BLOODY THING.
      12) since we've moved past prototype materials and into production materials.......LIE
      13) We do not anticipate any delays beyond the normal application periods........YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PRODUCT FIRST

      Good stuff.

      I'm not totally upset that I've thrown $125 away. I've learned many valuable lessons on how to run a scam on Kickstarter. That's worth at least $5.

      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".

      Is this Hydra or Hybra now? All the lies and secrets.

    16. Creator Michael Doran on May 6

      It would be less pathetic if the deadlines that Hybra continues to miss were not of their own making.

    17. Creator Dave H. on May 6

      Paul C,

      "If" and that is a big "if" there are any real people at the beta tester pledge level, these would be the family & friend backers we heard so much about so long ago. This amounts to an in-house beta test program. Once again Hybra has ensured that no independent third party gets a peek at the SB at any stage of its design, redesign, manufacturer, re-manufacture, testing, and retesting. The date and announcement of SB beta testing was just as insincere as everything else they have said about this project.

      I would not blame anyone for not believing Hybra if they ever announce that the SB is shipping.

      I can see it now: Sorry Backer X. We don't know what happened. Your SB must have been lost by the shipper. We'll immediately send you another...wait...wait...wait..nothing.

    18. Creator Paul Christopher on May 5

      @13vrod

      I wouldn't hold my breath that anyone received beta units. We only knew one one beta level backer who came forward since this project began. The others either kept quiet and continue to do so or were fraudulent backers created to give this project an air of popularity that it never should have received.

    19. Creator 13vrod on May 4

      What's the word
      Any beta units received by anyone

      Matty Maroun is a billionaire who owns a couple of companies, including the one that employs Joe Thiel in his day job. Hybra's current address is in fact registered to one of Maroun's companies.

      Agh Hybra, slipping back into your old ways I see. Am I surprised? Not one bit.

    25. Creator Michael Doran on April 30

      This is the last day in April. Have any 'beta backers' received their review units? Do any of these backers actually exist? This marks yet another in the long list of broken promises, lies, and missed deadlines from Joe Thiel.

    26. Creator Harold Bottoms on April 30

      For the Record, Hybra Advance -

      Please see: https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/media-resources/truth-advertising
      "Truth In Advertising
      When consumers see or hear an advertisement, whether it’s on the Internet, radio or television, or anywhere else, federal law says that ad must be truthful, not misleading, and, when appropriate, backed by scientific evidence. The Federal Trade Commission enforces these truth-in-advertising laws, and it applies the same standards no matter where an ad appears – in newspapers and magazines, online, in the mail, or on billboards or buses. The FTC looks especially closely at advertising claims that can affect consumers’ health or their pocketbooks – claims about food, over-the-counter drugs, dietary supplements, alcohol, and tobacco and on conduct related to high-tech products and the Internet, such as the dissemination of spyware. The FTC also monitors and writes reports about ad industry practices regarding marketing of food, violent movies, music, and electronic games to children.
      When the FTC finds a case of fraud perpetrated on consumers, the agency files actions in federal district court for immediate and permanent orders to stop scams; prevent fraudsters from perpetrating scams in the future; freeze their assets; and get compensation for victims."

      Soundband was Advertised as "Production Ready."

      Hybra really should honor any and all refunds.

      Investors from before this project gave money and they want to see something. They likely gave a greater amount of financial assistance and that was years ago. You have to deliver on something to make back that much money. Wherever this ends up that path is the simplest for all the parties who made promises to extricate themselves from the situation.
      If it is not somewhat successful to whatever degree it needs to be then the cycle starts all over again with another idea.

    35. Creator Dave H. on April 14

      Hybra will have to send out another address survey before they ship since so much time has passed. I think I'll list Central Transport as my address. Surely they will get that hint and just issue my a refund.

    36. Creator KPK02 on April 14

      I don't understand how some people don't feel blatantly misled during the campaign. Even if assumed unintentional, the project status was not accurately presented at that time. At some point, Joe admitted something along those lines and that he had not been directly involved with the project during that time. Assume I give him the benefit of the doubt. 4000 people just gave them $550k for something that is not true. Did he cancel the project and start over with a honest one? Offer refunds? No, he just kept on running with the money from the misleading campaign.

      That's my entire frustration with it. It's not that it's delayed, nor that many updates are questionable, nor the continued lack of a basic web site, nor even that the design isn't turning out (in my opinion) to be anywhere near the quality of innovation promised. My issue is that it feels like the campaign was a lie (come on.. someone on the team had to be aware of the status and risks) and we were never given a chance to back out once the true design status had been admitted.

      One thing is certain for me. After Kickstarter's change in policy (it used to require that creators fulfill all rewards but now technically leaves a loophole) and realization that KS does very little to protect backers, I doubt I'll be backing any future projects here.

    37. Creator royblumenthal on April 14

      My impression is that someone... Probably Matty Maroun... said to Joe, "You'd BETTER produce SOMETHING. ANYTHING!!! I don't like seeing my name mentioned on Kickstarter. Get these people off my back."

      So they're producing something quick and nasty, so that fraud allegations won't stick too hard.

      They're relying on people saying, "Oh well... Sound Band was a good IDEA. Pity it didn't work out. But they gave it a shot."

      They're going to ship this piece of crap, and that'll be the end of this saga.

      I'm shipping mine straight back for a refund.

      And if they don't make good on that, that's a very clear case of fraud.

      I think they're playing this very badly.

      They should be refunding everyone who wants their money back. Upfront. No questions asked.

      I felt the need to post the list again since it hasn't been in sight for a month now. Although the updates are more... substantial (in appearance at least), I'm really not sure I'll even use the Soundband if it ever comes to my doorstep. Not only because of this whole story, which is already enough of an ethical reason to not use them, but also because I realized they're probably not as useful as I first thought.

      @Lee Teck Koon : There was no real version 4, and if there was, it was only a single prototype that we've never been sure was fully functional . So you assuredly can't get one.

      Consolidated List of People Wanting A Sound Band Refund
      ---------------------------------------------------
      *Add Your Name If You Want Your Money Back*
      ---------------------------------------------------
      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".

      Agh here come the "kool aid" drinkers as Roy would have put it. So many people content with this shit project and all the lies we've been fed since the beginning.

      Remember when you stated the following in the risks and challenges part of the initial proposal? This was before you took the backers' money and essentially went back to the drawing board.

      "Regarding the product itself, there aren't really any risks and challenges remaining. However, there are a few loose ends to tie up, including final audio tuning (tuning is only needed again at this phase since we've moved past prototype materials and into production materials) and undergoing various certifications that are typical of wireless headsets (FCC, Bluetooth, etc.). We do not anticipate any delays beyond the normal application periods."

      Any new updates of progress that are behind the point you stated the development was at when you started the campaign are an insult to backers. You've lost your relevance to me and I would prefer a refund.

      Thanks.

      LOL! Exact same thought I had when I first read the latest update. XD

      The testosterone level in here is waaay too high of late...

      Well Update #58 mentioned beta testing the SB by no later than mid-April (your words). How about an update on that Joe, or was that another of your infamous "promises"?

      @Kazuma - The more common form of this is the creators who will use their "updates" to send out information on other projects. I have had some long after their project ends send messages about another project that was their friends. It sounds like you had a creator outright give away your email address though. Unfortunately, I don't believe KS Terms and Conditions prohibit that (after all, almost every website sells your email anyway).

      @jerry
      yeah, that's true. but without consent, that's a different story. I emailed back and asked the creator where the hell he got my email, he just basically said he got it from a friend of his that had a project here that I backed. I asked him what project it was and he still hasn't replied. KS is getting more awful.

      Guys, just a quick question, sorry for asking this question here, I know it's not the right place to ask but I will since most of the backers here, except me, are smart. Is there anyway a project creator would know the email address of a KS member even though the member did not backed the project of the project creator? I just got a message from my personal email with a link to a project here called Gbreeze. It somehow ticked me off since I dunno how the hell did they get my email. I am super careful when it comes to my personal email.

      @Chris C: therein lies a meta-discussion I don't think it would behoove us to have. ;-)
