Aurisonics was already selling a bunch of these at the Melbourne AV show.
Kickstarter backers are still waiting while they are already retailing units to distributors.
This production bottleneck sounds like a whole lot of crock considering they had about 10 pairs for sale at the show.
Remember fellows they have another kickstarter soon, I know I sure as hell wont be putting a cent
anymore towards Aurisonics anymore.
This is what bothers me the most indeed. I've never been part of a crowd funded projected with so much money OVER what was asked in the campaign, yet updates are sparse and there is always another reason for the next delay. It definitely doesn't put a nice taste in my mouth for Aurisonics. I understand having demo units at a meet or convention (but units for sale?!), but I feel Aurisonics' #1 priority should be fulfilling their end of the campaign.
I also understand production issues and similar things, but it seems this would have been ironed out months ago. We are now 6 months past the projected ship date and counting.
The lack of updates on where things stand is my biggest complaint, especially for a campaign of this size. You'd also think they could increase production to more than 5 pairs a day. And offering too many choices shouldn't be an issue for this company that offers multiple custom and universal IEMs in different configurations. For the Rockets, there's a white cable, a black cable, mic version, and non mic version of each. The TiN colors shouldn't be an issue either since they knew from February on how to achieve this.
Anyway, just my 2 cents.
