      Could you give an update on where the project is and some estimate of production of the sound band. My sister and I both have invested and she was asking. Thanks a lot
      Lois Dirkes

    11. Paul Christopher on May 14

      I received the same response from the Michigan AG today with the same rant from Joe that he sent them. At the end he stares he will update kickstarter at the end of the month with the "good news". I'm sure that was more bull spewing from his mouth

    12. Pontianak on May 14

      So the AG of Michigan basically said it doesn't care if a company lies to receive funding for years, then never delivers their product? This makes me think about this product.... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/117421627/the-peachy-printer-the-first-100-3d-printer-and-sc/posts/1572573 Basically one of the employees took the money and built a house with it. I can only wonder if something fraudulent has happened here as well.

    13. royblumenthal on May 13

      I received an email from the Michigan Attorney General's office a few days ago. It contained as an attachment Joe Thiel's response to my complaint.

      The response was a general rant about the backers he got banned from Kickstarter for their slanderous and baseless accusations. He also declares in the response that no fraud was committed, and that beta units have been sent to testers, and that orders have been placed with suppliers.

      The Attorney General of Michigan appears to be a toothless nag. They find no wrongdoing in this case, and hence, the file is now closed.

      I filled that complaint about two years ago. It's taken them this long to whitewash it. Pathetic.

      I would like Mr Thiel and his band of sound to face a court of law.

      I'm fricking begging one of my American compatriots to please please please go to a police station and open a criminal case of fraud against this clown.

      Like the Orb by Hybra, this is a disgrace. Shame on you. I couldn't give a crap about the money anymore, but this is disgraceful. The internet remembers all and i really hope it was worth the $550.000 for you guys.

      Look I understand that backing on KS has a risk factor and that theoretically backers are entitled to nothing. That being said, the technology has long passed you by. This already exists and it is really effective. Go to aftershokz.com. For $75 bucks I already bought what you are trying to "pioneer". And that's the sad fact.

      You should also go to the "Campaign" section of the Project, scroll all the way to the bottom, and "Report this Project to Kickstarter"

      Θα ήταν πιο ικανοποιητική αν έβαζαν όλους τους ανήθικους και κλέφτες Hybra στην πλατεία της πόλης, έτσι θα μπορούσαμε να ρίξει σάπια λαχανικά σε αυτούς

      The biggest losers here are all the legit creators that will never get anyone to fund their projects due to scams like this. Kickstarter loses too. Shame on them for allowing this to go unchallenged. However, you folks (and me) are out the cash. There is absolutely nothing you can do about it. No FTC, no Kickstarter, no anything is gonna change that. Unless the Sound Band actually becomes more than just photoshopped images, the fat lady has sung (and you'll be hearing it in your old headphones). R.I.P.

      @HybraAdvanceTechnology,Inc.
      You mentioned on March 21st that links would be posted for the Media story you stated would be out later towards the end of March. It has been over a month since that comment below. Any more updates as I do see you are planning on rolling out the Orb which seems a similar product.

      Just read the most recent xconomy article and noticed they mentioned the hybratech website been updated, which I had not realised. Thought I'd have a browse and noticed under the packaging tab, there is a picture of soundband in plastic packaging. Is this a render? is this real? I can't make out on the small screen i'm browsing on, though it is a (possibly, maybe, dreaming) positive note that the website is now functional, albeit with a strange scarcity of graphics for anyone with a product to represent.

      I have 2 pledges so, am in for over $300. Could have flushed it at the local casino and at least had some fun.

      If this is a project fail just tell us so we can go on with our earbuds and\or noise cancelling headphones.

      The Xconomy article brings up a disjointed money situation from Joe himself. Roy and the larger group pointed to the financial shuffling long, long ago. Pascal Forget mentioned in his Sept. 14, 2015 comment a response from Joe by e-mail which I only repeat one sentence here: “500k is not even 1/5th of the $$ it will take to finish this.” That was a month after the coat hanger redesign which was 4 months after the prototype that looked something like the original.

      I interpreted that to mean that all hopes are pinned on some entity with the financial capability to fund the idea. I’d hate to use the word miracle because that would actually be optimistic.

    36. royblumenthal on April 28

      It's all a big misunderstanding. The backers have misinterpreted a word in the project title: "Sound Band - Finally, a headset without speakers!"

      The word we got wrong is "headset".

      The correct way to think about it is "mindset". Then Sound Band is actually not a product at all... It's a way of thinking.

      So... If you listen to the world around you, and pretend that you're listening via Bluetooth, and think about the money you spent, you're ACTUALLY hearing your world through Sound Band.

      In a very complicated and philosophical way, Joe Thiel has actually delivered on his promise.

    37. BrianUnknown on April 27

      You know this whole thing is a load of bull- I mean, 3 years, doesn't feel the need to post updates, still continues to say there are issues with it, "Private investors" and more bull- Guy I can't be respectful when you say one thing, and do another. December 2013 has long gone and past. You might not think 3 years is long, or you might think 3 years is fine, but 3 years is a long time, and I still have lost 125$ from this. Maybe, just maybe, you should think about idk, accepting that you are a fraudulent company. Infact your site is complete fraud being that everything on it, is complete and utter bull- Look at the pages, complete lies. AND what ever happened to the "Orb ring" because that was before the soundband, and look at where we are now. Sitting here, with nothing and lost money.

    38. Paul Christopher on April 27

      The fact remains that Joe refuses to show anything that is going on to the people that gave him the money to make this happen. There are no updates anymore and when Joe does show face in here its for a split second and he's gone again for months. If progress really was being made then you'd think he'd be preaching it often here, yet here we are with nothing to show for it and still have no realistic view on when/if we'll ever see this product.

      I hate to be a little rain cloud, but per Taylor's email conversation, April 28th is two days away. It would be nice if you hyped us up a little for the sound band if it is still on track. If not, maybe give us a new projected time line? Maybe a thank you for supporting you for so long financially when a bank wouldn't.

    41. Kalus on April 26

      @Hybra We are still here and waiting for '...later this month'. Hm.., is it next month in relative to last month ? Keep some month's alive and update us....it would feel good, no matter of probability...

      @Neil Lasher: That product is another Schrödinger's cat scenario. The product both exists and does not exist until you see it. The answer depends upon the view of reality you are willing to accept.

      The simpler answer is that only Orb prototypes were ever produced. Whether they actually worked is a question that very few people can answer. You'd probably get similar answers whether you asked AbsolutelyNew or Hybra.

    43. Neil Lasher on April 21

      I see you have another product the Orb. Tell us about that product, do you have that? why not ship me one of those instead if it exists.

    46. Paul Christopher on April 15

      @Taylor

      I notice that the date given to you still lacks a year to go with it. This is meant to show progress while still being very ambiguous. I would be surprised if they meant this year with no data being shown here for months.

      @D.L.
      Hopefully that article drops soon and we can see what is going on

    47. D.L. on April 12

      Fun and interesting information, all. I reached out to Sarah Schmid, who wrote the few articles on Xconomy about the Soundband project. I expressed to her that Hybra is again (still?) not being forthcoming with information/updates, and that any and all promises of information made by Hybra have been since disregarded or ignored. She let me know that she is currently working on another follow-up story and it (the article, not the Soundband) should drop very soon.
