January Update

Posted by Mindset (Creator)

Hey Backers,

Happy 2019! We’ve been off to a great start, working towards getting our tooling ready and our DV batch manufactured. 

Since we’re mid-milestone (prepping for DV batch), January was a heads-down-working kind of month. This update will be much shorter than usual, as last month was spent preparing for manufacturing our next batch of engineering units. In this update, we’ll share a few decisions we have made recently to accelerate the schedule and ship as soon as possible, as well providing a deeper timeline about the steps to getting there. 

You can check out the blog post here. Enjoy! 

January was an in-between month for us, where we focused on prepping the supplies and requirements for our next prototypes. On the hardware side, we managed to send in the purchase order for our prototypes before Chinese New Year, which keeps us on schedule to receive the prototypes in early march, and the DV batch end of march. These prototypes will enable us to validate full-functionality, to tune the ANC in Taiwan, and to test the software UX. 

On software, we’re bringing on more help on neuro-adaptive music composition and user experience design. Together, this new expertise will enable us to take a new look at the software app and ensure that the experience is designed from the ground up to add tangible value, while integrating seamlessly into your life. We’ll share app images as we work through the next months of design and testing. 

We detailed our timeline more thoroughly below. We’re still on schedule to produce our DV batch in March, with PV and shipping shortly after. 

February 4th was Mindset’s 3rd birthday! We’re incredibly humbled, and excited by all the next steps on the horizon. Thank you again for all of your support, and for making Mindset possible!  

You can check out our monthly update on our blog. As always, please post any comments or questions , and we’ll be happy to continue the conversation! 

As a reminder, if you’re interested in being part of our user research calls, please send an email to Thanks in advance for your support in making Mindset as great as it can be! 

Lots of love, 

- The Mindset Team

      Hey innovators! Keep at it! If it were easy, it would not be called innovation! I'm looking forward to seeing you succeed!

      We all need to get an update on when you will ship. We all bought this with the expectation of a 2017 delivery date. I'm starting to think this is a complete scam. Your updates don't have any real substance in them. Can we see a working prototype and or hear from anyone who has tested your product through video?

      Where is my Mindset ?
      I did pay for this in 2017.. I still have to wait for that? This is a joke

      This is ridiculous... it was projected December of 2017, it’s now 2019! I ordered these to help my midget thru HS and he graduates in May... so... I’d personally like a refund. Last kick start project I’ll ever back.
