    Yes I know the whole story and saga... by just looking at the innards and manufacturing detail people are flogging a dead horse. Time wasted is a time lost.

    No we're not, we're trying to REPAIR a failed product by a vendor to get SOME life out of them so we don't lose 90£. It's not flogging a dead horse if we can correct the design flaws.

    **edit** FYI: I fixed mine. This is the whole point.

    wow, you have three airs? were you a kickstarter backer? i'm super early bird backer #444 and am really fed up with them. i wrote kieran now two emails over the last week and have yet to hear from him. i've never received anything. are they just delivering to the uk? i'm located in germany.
  5. Karendar
    They deliver pairs gold/white and orange/white from the UK... Just received mine which shipped last week

    And I believe Harpo was one of the ones that was sampled for a trial run and got a v1 and a v2 pair...

    My Trinity Saga is coming to an end, thankfully. Once I repair these suckers and post a video about it, I'll just need to sell off my PM6 and cut my losses and move on. :p

    Yes you are by just doing it. LOL

    THEY have a fundamental flaw within its design. Absolute headache

    Well my take is it is just branded Chi-Fi that they have : either failed to pay for... or been ripped off... or shafted by customs. But not explained to customers who have already paid for said items. Just a sad example of how to carry out a business

    The horse ain't dead. :p It's pretty much alive. And I now have functional Airs... How many people can actually say that?

    Now stop bothering us victims. :wink:

    As Karendar said I was one of the first to receive them and discover the problems they had. Bob sent me another pair after the so called fixes but they still had several issues. Right before his departure he sent me another pair with more fixes but they all still act basically the same. They don't work and I'm not going to tear anymore apart. More than likely they'll just go in the trash.

    I'm far from an expert on electrical work, but is that uninsulated wiring? I feel like that could cause problems just by touching each other, not to mention that it's housed in a metal enclosure. If you don't want them anymore, I'll take 'em. Maybe I could salvage them like @Karendar which would at least make them somewhat functional. Or you'd have less trash and I'd have more :p

    The wires have some kind of foil wrap. However, there are some exposed wires that go to the driver. The workmanship on these is terrible.

    Agreed. I know next to nothing about electrical design, but I see the wires from the battery to the first board and the main board to the driver and I don't like the look of that at all. If/when I take them apart and see that, I might try to wrap some electrical tape around it.
  15. Karendar
    I agree from the pictures you sent. It explains why some of the buds just stopped charging. The wiring looks cheap AF and could cause a short pretty much anywhere. I'm wondering if I shouldn't just desolder the wiring and resolder better quality wiring... Or put silicon over the wiring at the very least to avoid any shorting.

    This just goes to show... Don't accept the first delivered sample as your final sample and go into mass production :p
