      @Don Gateley it's now the "onsolidated List" :-))

      Joking aside the creator is simply not bothered in any form of communication with us backers.
      I asked a few questions based on last update and as usual no reply.

      As they say "After all is said and done, more is said than done.

      Has there been any discussion here lately? With all the recent "Consolidated List" jamming it's not easy to tell if there might be something interesting to read.

      So my friend received her set of Headbones, a project that was funded july 2014. Uses bone conducting tech, and bluetooth, plus has a 3.5mm jack, and you can plug normal earbuds into it and use it as a bluetooth receiver. very good and a successful campaign. Looks like i backed the wrong horse there.

      @Arthur Thomas, interesting article. I wonder how the case will turn out. Maybe we will be able to find recourse after all.

    8. Creator Jeanette Davis 4 days ago

      Roy - totally agree with you. These funding sites are actually aiding and abetting criminals. A crime on its own!!!

    9. Creator Dave H. 6 days ago

      Good on you michael. You were more perceptive than most of us. I didn't clue in until the announcement of the first delay citing "requests for changes from an overwhelming number of backers" which "coincidentally" occurred exactly one day after the Amazon refund request period ended. Never again...

    10. Creator michael Pyz 6 days ago

      So glad I did a stop payment back when I smelled this bullshit coming.

      I have been silent from the beginning. I have read all the updates and read a substantial amount of the comments being put up here. I have finally had enough waiting for something that is not coming.

      I want my 150.00 USD that I put up for this project back. I hope that you will honor this request and hastily perform the refund so that there does not need to be further formal action needed.

      Thank you

      @Hybra/Joe/he who must never be named person.

      Could you please answer the following questions:

      1. Why are you only building 10 beta test units when there are 12 backers ?

      2. Regardless of what you call the units, as money has changed hands, the beta pledges are required to comply/tested/approved for both FCC & CE. Are you really doing that on 3D printed versions that will require recertification when mass produced?

      3. What happened to the test "head" you were building to assist tuning?

      4. If question three was built, what was tested on it?

      5. If the answer to question 4 is a soundband why are you not prepared to share pictures.

      6. If the Soundband ever goes into production where (country) will it be made?

    15. Creator Don Gateley on February 19

      I succeeded in getting one prominent tech news site to state in the headline blurb in its article stack when they are reporting on a KickStarter.

      Push your perception that this site has become KickFraudster - user beware - everywhere that you visit and comment on new stuff, especially technology. Just complaining here is preaching to the choir and various legal efforts seem to be getting nowhere. Spreading our awareness as far as our voices can reach might possibly effect change.

    16. Creator Pascal Forget on February 19

      @royblumenthal: You are so right. @Kickstarter is allowing scammers (or fraudsters, or wannabe entrepreneurs who don't communicate regularly and honestly with the backers about the use of the funds, as per Kickstarter's own rules) to steal without penalty... If you have a issue with a transaction with eBay, airbnb, Uber and such, they help you out, even if they are not always at fault. Kickstarter should at least help out with organizing class actions, or communicate officially with the backers when something fishy seems to be going on...

    17. Creator royblumenthal on February 18

      I think companies like Indiegogo and Kickstarter should be aggressively going after defaulters.

      If defaulters knew that they would be pursued to the full extent of the law by a strong, powerful, wealthy company, they might reconsider their fraudulent ways.

      Instead, Kickstarter just ignores the con artists, and contends that it's up to the backers to get their money back.

      Backers should be pursuing a class action compelling Kickstarter to act on behalf of backers.

    18. Creator Trogdor on February 18

      @Roy
      I've seen that a few months ago. Interesting concept but the premiums would have to remain high I think. Just an awesome invitation for scammers to game the system. I'd also thought about withholding some of the funds until milestones were met...but then again, a scammer might be more than happy with 50% of collected funds.
      .
      I suppose that many of these projects can't get funding any other way...so they turn here. Others look for an interest free loan without needing to provide equity.
      .
      Not sure if there is an easy answer to mitigate risk...

    24. Creator Dave H. on February 11

      It would appear that numerous other projects have employed "the Hybra Technique" of proclaiming to be production ready when in reality there is still mucho technical problems to work out or in some cases actually invent.

      Human nature and greed being what they are, It was only a matter of time before a good funding/rewards idea began to be used to take advantage of people who cannot protect themselves due to inaccurate or incomplete disclosure by the project creators.

      True to my word, I have not backed any other KS projects. There is just too much wiggle room for dishonest project creators to take advantage and zero avenues of recourse people who get duped.

      In time as this problem gets worse and it will get much worse and become much more prevalent, maybe a new alternative will surface that places more emphasis on protecting the interests of the backers while still allowing creators room to fulfill their goals. Until then, KS and similar sites are a free for all rife with abuse.

    25. Creator Chris Gates on February 10

      I am amazed at the amount of scams kickstarter and indiegogo have created. 30 projects funded and the last 10 have all been scams and no products will be received, or like here so far in the future they will be obsolete! i have waited 2 years for most of those products and nothing.....Shame on you all

    27. Creator Ron Mirasol on February 7

      I've got to echo what Chris C. said about the latest Xconomy piece - there's no new info in there at all. it's the deliberate omissions that tell the story:

      1) previously, the reporter got to listen to a working prototype. this time, despite the claimed improvements, she gets shown a box of parts and given a lecture?

      2) Joe continues to put the blame on Ryan Wells, Meagan Wells, and Marty Stevenson, while keeping the central person currently involved in the engineering effort anonymous. does that sound like passing the buck to you?

      of course, we probably already know who the engineer is: Rick Fortson, who was introduced way back in 10/2013 in Update 10 (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hybratech/sound-band-finally-a-headset-without-speakers/posts/627946). his public LinkedIn profile lists him as "Vice President of New Technology Development, Central Transport, Inc." and it can be inferred that he was one of the engineers that Chris C. met with in May last year. I know I'd feel more confident in the claims of improvements if someone were willing to put their name behind them.

      3) and by the way, Joe's not CEO anymore but won't say who's in charge. and Hybra is getting "angel" funding but won't say who it's from. aren't you glad there are people leading this project who are willing to take accountability for it? [/sarcasm]

      there've been many claims here that with all of the "restructuring" that produced a Hybra holding company and the movement of assets, that Joe has been merely been trying to distance himself from the project to reduce his own personal liability. trying to obscure what's been available in public record further hurts his credibility.

      many of the corporate docs filed for the Hybra companies with the state of Michigan list Central Transport employees as Hybra officers. Hybra is housed at Central Transport. Central Transport is owned by Matty Maroun. seems to line up with what others have posited: that Matty Maroun is Hybra's source of funding. too bad there's no money available to provide refunds to those of us who want out.

      the only new thing this time around is the totally inconsequential remark that Joe's "learned to be more measured in his on-the-record comments" - who cares? that wording is so deliberate, I can only imagine what he continues to say about us while off the record. meanwhile, he still plays the spin game with lies (the list of people wanting refunds has shrunk), claims that can't be verified (he contacts backers privately regularly) and self-promotion (he's the guy who always stops to help out people in need).

      what would it take for Joe to admit that he is at fault and he's sorry? maybe he's saving that for when they end up not delivering. but I'm not holding my breath.

    28. Creator Dave H. on February 7

      From the update, it would appear the next milestone that should get everyone all excited is the delivery of working units to the beta testers. I find it simply amazing that apart from one person who pledged at the beta tester level, none of the other 11 have come forward in all this time with so much as a single comment. It would not surprise me at all to learn that all of the beta testers that will be reviewing and posting pictures turn out to be Hybra "ringers". If I had dropped $450 I would have said something by now. Same goes for the couple of people who took out a 2nd mortgage to go the CES with Hybra...not so much as a peep in more than two years.

      The proof is in the pudding. Unfortunately we are being fed only cake. I still do not believe what we are being told. Joe is attempting to renew his lease on life by another 10 months. 10 months for him to coach kids, work at CT to pay the bills and finalize his exit plan.

      I cannot help but believe that if by some miracle a soundband does eventually grace my doorstep, it will be of a quality and usefulness akin to the prize in a box of Crackerjack. I am aghast that after all this time; we are still talking about R&D issues without a single shred of tangible evidence to back up any statement made by the creator.

      I can understand the engineer not wanting to be outed publicly (just look at who his has aligned himself with), however without a demonstrated presence, anything attributed to him is hearsay. If any of these unsubstantiated details are true, more anonymous investors, a complete redesign of the SB, tech help supplied by unnamed third party companies and Joe being in an advisory role it is clear that what "we" said 18 months ago has happened - Hybra wanted someone to swoop in and buy the SB from him and bring it to market themselves. If what we are being told is actually the case, then this is what has happened.

      Hybra failed in producing the product themselves and our hopes are now pinned to unnamed and faceless others. Clearly another demonstrable failure for Hybra but potentially a win for Joe not to mention Ryan, Meaghan & Marty who probably still have some skin in this game.

      Don’t get all excited folks. There is nothing in the last update that in anyways proves we are any closer to seeing a SB than we were when the KS project closed - Just more of the same promises and unsubstantiated assurances that all is well in the Kingdom and we should be thankful for the cake tossed our way by the emperor who still refuses to pull back the curtain of transparency and expose the whole sordid truth for what it actually is.

      December 2015, yeah right. Whatcha want to bet that what we get is a break apart DIY Heathkit type project with instructions that say, “put this together just so and you may be able to get your eardrums to vibrate enough to allow others to hear what you are listening to…”

    29. Creator MF Calub on February 7

      I'm sorry but as I said from the very beginning, this "reporter" is extremely questionable. Any reporter that only regurgitates without actually investigating, to me, is just another soundboard. She just parrots everything.

      @Chris C- Hope is a powerful thing. I think a lot of people would really like to believe that they were not fooled and that there is a "product" coming. The reporter is the perfect reporter for ScamBand. She just parrots everything they say and she tries to make it all sound like reporting.

      Just like almost everyone here, I am hoping. Unfortunately, there is no credibility whatsoever here. Joe has lied again and again. He has no physical product to show. There is absolutely NO attempt at showing anyone that they have anything tangible. All he shows are words and his words are absolutely worthless.

      We're headed to year 3 everyone. That's the magic year he disappears and tells us he worked his arse off but he just can't produce. Year 3 is the magic year for fraudulent projects to wrap it up.

    30. Creator The Alamo on February 6

      "Bob pointed to a “shocking” lack of basic testing done by the original designers of the Sound Band that would have revealed design flaws before the company went on Kickstarter claiming that the Sound Band was ready for manufacturing."

      So much for, "We nailed it."

      No matter how you paint it, the campaign was GROSS NEGLIGENCE.
      Money was taken under false presences. This is still FRAUD. To be specific, it is wire fraud.
      Joe really wants us to consider their initial campaign as PUFFING. Lol, you can't puff a lie and make it a truth.

      Joe says people should have their units by Christmas..... We have now heard that for 3 different Christmases.
      No matter how this thing turns out, Hybra with forever be tarnished. If they would have just cut bait and returned people's money right away, he could have saved himself a lot of grief and then had a huge relaunch when it was really ready.
      A person like Joe is not someone I would ever want to do business with, let alone let him coach my kids. What an embarrassment to his entire lineage.

    32. Creator Chris C on February 6

      I take my hat off to Joe and Company.
      I could not help but laugh reading the article.

      So if I understood it:
      The person who's real name we must not know, showed some parts that did not work, while explaining what would, however having nothing that worked that he could demo.
      He went on to explain how all the problems were solved, with the help of some people who again could have no name, using a technology that is so secret that no one must know.
      Now if you were wondering how, well that's simple, it's from the money put up by the investors that also have no name.
      The irony in all this is that the only person we do actually know is Joe and he now only has an "Advisory" role.

      I'm not disrespecting the work of our reporter, but you do have to admire what a master stroke has been pulled off here, a three page article that actually gives no real info at all.

      Priceless :-))

    33. Creator Leewelo Lorekeeper AoUA on February 6

      @Joe Dane
      Thanks for the article.

      Hybra continues to baffle me with its many communication strategies...
      But there's hope for a product. Probably not for a reconciliation between Joe and the vocal backers here.
      Many hopeful comments (from Joe) aren't reflected here (yet).
      Other comments feels like stale discussion or misrepresentations, like Paul pointed out.

      In any case, if the article is true on the technical side, I thank you Bob, whoever you are.
      Joe, I will only thank at the end, for his perseverance, when Soundband becomes a retail product.
      This year I want to believe.
      Because railing against a mute wall is far less fun? Perhaps.

      With so many positive things, I think it's time Hybra and Joe make an active comeback to this KS thread.

    34. Creator Bradley Richards on February 6

      Am I the only one wondering why the beta testers didn't get beta units the moment after the campaign ended? The delay was that they were trying to develop the tool to build the soundbands, but if they're just going to 3d print the beta units (which according to them doesn't suffer from this issue unless of course I read the update wrong which I know I did at first since I originally thought they were saying everybody gets their units in May) then why did they make the beta testers wait??? Updating the components only happened during the time they tried to fix the molding issue, which if they had beta testers with 3d printed soundbands getting updated soundbands as time went on we would have had all the information to keep us happy for all these months (years?)

    35. Creator Paul Christopher on February 5

      @Joe Dane

      Thanks for posting the new article. Very well written, but still very lacking. Joe's claims are almost laughable at this point and you could actually counter some of his statements with direct comments posted by him (assuming I recall correctly and I have a pretty decent memory). Shame that the "design" changes mentioned in the article were never communicated to us. Why must we get the most information when a third party steps in..? Do I think we'll see a product this year? More than likely, no we will not. Hybra shows a track record of not being able to commit to their promises. Starting with the website, collage, pictures, videos, better updates, more frequent updates, weekly updates, better communication through comments and the list goes on and on. I also love how it says he replies to backers privately all the time, yet there are messages that I personally sent them that got met with no reply (as I'm sure there are many others in the same situation; also most likely even people that aren't on the list for a refund).

    36. Creator Wai Chan on February 5

      Oh hai. Long time no talk guys. I noticed it said there were 10 beta testing prototypes made but there were supposed to be 12 of us.

      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".

      I actually totally forgot about this project until I got an update. It will be a nice surprise when they do deliver. I think people who back Kickstarter projects should expect winners and losers. Its the nature of the beast. If Hybra deliver a product - great. Next time make sure you back a project that you are happy with losing the money. Casino style.

    41. Creator Andre "Silver Ninjatten" Bernier on February 3

      I honestly never thought this would happen.

    42. Creator Leewelo Lorekeeper AoUA on February 3

      An update!
      With delivery dates!
      What's going on?

    43. Creator Don Gateley on January 31

      @Trogdor: Yeah, that happens a lot in projects that are under fire. I find it to be useful info that's led me to cool places I didn't know about.

    44. Creator Trogdor on January 31

      LOL :)

      Funny that the best subject matter in this project seems to be the discussion of other projects. Go figure.

    45. Creator Don Gateley on January 31

      @Trogdor: I've got not truck with posts like yours at all. If there were any fucking jamming after it, though, I wouldn't have seen it. :-)

    46. Creator MF Calub on January 30

      @Trogdor: lol. Check out Humza's question regarding the misleading heartbeat pulsing light. glow's response didn't really answer a straightforward question. Glow gave gave a "political" answer and Humza thanked them for a non-answer. My "beware" radar has been turned on. I backed it at $127. I'll back out if they continue with misleading answers. It reminds me too much of Scam Band.

      That's what annoys me. I understand failures and delays. Project creators should not be held liable if they are honest. However, when they blatantly lie, that's another matter. They must be held responsible or else the platform fails when there are enough liars gaming the system.

      To be perfectly honest, I'm fine with Bragi failing because I knew they were still in R&D when I backed them. I evaluated the team and the risk was acceptable. In terms of ScamBand, I would never have backed them if they said they were still in R&D because the team have NO KNOWN successes. Now, we get penalized for believing their lies? That's plain stupid. Lying and deceiving on KS should have consequences. You can go to jail for selling a fake IPad on the streets. But you don't get penalized for selling people a $500K fake story. Funny.

      @MF

      Glow: we are of the same mind. Not sure what certs headphones need but with only a few EVT units July delivery would surprise me.

      "...since we are working with cutting edge technologies and materials such as Fibrance which few manufacturers have experience working with. We have finished most of the engineering work. What we have now is more than just an early prototype; "
      ...
      Now waiting for reprimand from Don for 'noise'... :P
