    I hope better battery life is in the cards for a future product. It's the only thing keeping me from either the Get or XB10; 6-8 hours just isn't enough for me. Right now the Radsone Earstudio is looking like my best bet: 350mAh battery for a claimed battery life of 14 hours, compared to the 200mAh battery in the Get, yet still almost the same size. Just waiting on some reviews and general availability, since they're just wrapping up their crowdfunding and making first deliveries as well.

    I backed the earstudio as well. Not sure how it'll sound, but it definitely looks promising, and the addition of balanced is just gravy.
    Once I get that I'll add comparisons as well.

    It seems some people have got this device but the bluewave website still shows it for pre-order, what is the current ship time for website orders? Thanks!
  4. m4rkw
    I'd be really grateful if someone could post their real-world battery life with the Get, eg at nominal volume, running it down to dead. If it was with Shure SE535s that would be even more awesome :D

    I'm currently using the shure BT1 cable which gets really good battery life (10+ hours) but has a load of other problems that led me to initiate a return with amazon.

    I'll run a simulation at work today. Will baseline with an iphone 6 and spotify streaming. :wink:

    Awesome thanks! :)

    They've mentioned in the comments on the Indiegogo page that they expect to have all crowd-sourced purchases shipped by Christmas. I would imagine orders from their website should ship some time after that. Maybe January?

    Bluewave team sent me this email on thursday:

    Hi Roman,

    We may still have the special pre-launch price, but we’ve already started to ship the first pre-orders. Unfortunately, we do have a lot of them to fill and the waiting time before shipping is currently of about a month. Very sorry about that. I hope it helps you with your final decision though.

    Thank you for your interest,
    Team Bluewave

    From a full charge, started playback at 9:45 AM EST. Currently looping a basic playlist off 320kbps MP3's (Don't have lossless on my phone yet, but shouldn't affect battery consumption on Get by that much, as it's doing mostly BT and post-processing)

    Baseline changed: I'm using my LG V30 in APTX-HD mode. :)

    Cool thanks! From reading other comments it sounds like I'm best off using something else with SE535s as they're fairly high sensitivity.

    Well, running with my U8's, I get moderate hiss... I'm waiting to see what their impedance adapter does for me. Only problem I see with impedance adapters, especially the Penon I've tried, is that it really affects soundstage...
  12. Karendar
    So started at 9:45 AM EST, we're at 13:41 PM EST and Get is still going strong... As I can't check remaining battery life, I can't say how much time it has left... My BT volume is at 75% and get is possibly 80% of volume (Loud enough so my ears don't hurt).
  13. m4rkw
    Well at 4 hours i’d be pretty shocked if it wasn’t still going. The BT1 cable advertises 8h but I consistently get well over 12 hours with it.
  14. Karendar
    I would be shocked too. :wink: But you never know with new products...

    **edit** Just had a small glitch. Music app crashed on my phone and get disconnected after 5 minutes... I restarted it and music is playing again. So we're close to the 6 hour mark (About 20 minutes to the 6 hour mark)

    **2nd edit** Beyond the 6 hour mark at 16:18... I'm about to leave the office. Considering Get specifications mentions 6 hours at max power and I'm driving gear that's not that power hungry, I have a feeling I'll be able to continue running this for a bit. At least until the 7 hour mark, maybe more.

    What issues did you encounter with the cable? Cause I've been eyeing it myself
