      I received an email from them saying hard time.manufacturing or something to that effect. But even at a set a day for the past year I would have received something

      Still waiting and I heard they started another project. Kickstarter should not allow this company on their site.

      Out of the 6 I have backed. 3 have failed to deliver. And that's failing to deliver 2years plus their deadline. This is one. I am now weary of using KS. And speak to the relevant parties along the track. If they are slow to respond or give good answers.. I just drop the pledge. Sick of this.. where's my now out of date tech ear plugs ?

      All - In February, I sent an email off to RippleBuds...to my surprise, they actually responded...in May. Below is the correspondence I had with them (from newest to oldest). Needless to say, I am not inspired with confidence (they also removed KickStarter Support from their responses, but I forward it to them after the fact)...but it's just more of the same excuses. If they end up sending the product, no one will be more surprised than I, however I get the feeling and fear we're going to end up getting something sub-standard, if we get anything at this point.

      Hope this helps.

      We are trying to solve them, after that we will handle shipping quickly.
      We apologize that we can't assure you of the exact delivery date.
      The notice about the schedule is going to be posted on Kickstarter homepage soon when we are ready.
      Please check it later.
      Thank you! You will be able to satisfied with our perk as much as you've waited long days.

      RippleBuds,

      Yet again, you're telling me "it's coming." WHEN?

      Your Kickstarter project was more than fully funded by the time I provided my backing, so there shouldn't be any financial concerns. There is no reason why any delay in shipping should have taken this long.

      On June 5, 2017, RippleBuds sent Project Update #34 stating:
      "Dear Backers,
      We are glad to inform you that 1,360pcs of RS100 will be shipped this week.
      Remaining shipments will be made shortly in the following weeks.
      Thank you for your patience.

      Best regards,
      Team Ripplebuds"

      We are coming up on 1 year from that message, which was the last update you provided. What was promised to be mere weeks has now turned into an eternity.

      I want to know the date the RippleBuds are going to arrive at my address, and now I want a tracking number so I can expect them...or, I want my $229 back immediately.

      Please comply.

      Tom Arena

      We are very sorry about not letting you know delays in shipment and our latest status.
      There are some unexpected financial problems influencing the delay of volume shipments.
      We will try to solve it and send your rewards as soon as possible.
      And every campaigns and selling was closed before. Our homepage's purchasing menu is just on, not functioned.
      If you could wait for a little longer, the product will be worth the wait.
      Thank you.

      I funded you in April 2016 on Kickstarter and have never received my product. I have reached out to you before and I was told "it's coming" and something about not being able to tell me when. This is completely unacceptable and I expect you to provide me either with the completed product, or with a refund of the $229 I paid to get your product going, which I feel had not been completed according to the terms of the Kickstarter program.
