...and along came the Smart Case
Sorry for being out of touch...
First of all, we sincerely apologize for the lack of updates. As you may know, Apple recently released a new iPad Smart Case. We felt that everyone who pre-ordered on kickstarters and any future buyers would appreciate it if the Amplifiear adjusted to suit the market.
In order to face this challenge we had to halt tooling. We have spent the last couple of weeks working very hard to redesign the product. We are proud to say that the new Amplifiear now fits the iPad 2 and the new iPad with and without the Apple Smart Case. In addition, although it has not been tested, we believe the Amplifiear will now fit the first generation iPad.
In order make the Amplifiear fit, it now comes with two different EVA foam pads. The specified foam pad can be attached depending on your iPad’s generation and casing. The EVA will additionally serve as protection against any wear and tear the Amplifiear may cause with repeated use.
These recent events have caused us to push back the shipping date to July. We understand this may come as an inconvenience, but we remind you that designing and manufacturing a product is long and delicate process. We thank you for your continued support and hope you will be happy with the new product changes.
Thanks + regards,
