After my 10 days of "aftersales" silence I finally got an update from John.
He was nice and explained the delays etc.
Here's my experience so far:
week #44, 29 october, send my impressions
week #45, 07 november, impressions arrived at Earpeace
week #46, 11 november, payment was made
--- no replys anymore
week #47, 21 november, got an update
week #49 or later my order will be "shipped back"
God knows when I actually get them.
Estimated turnaround time 4-5 weeks or +- 35 days, quite a disappointment after the 10 days told when you order.
But, it's probably all worth it
Funny thing to add.
I didn't have a clue about the size of "earpeace", I didn't know if they made 10 or a 100 LiveWires a day. Which could explain the minimal aftersales support.
Turns out they produce an average of 6,5 units a day.
