Early this month, we succeeded in getting the earbuds to connect extremely well in different environments.
That was such a relief for the team.
The best scenario is when you are inside a structure, such as a room or else.
Urban areas work surprisingly well too.
The worst scenario so far is when there are no obstacles in the way. Let’s say you are on an open field, without tall buildings or structures around.
Even with this scenario, the earbuds work very well, except when they are in the back pocket, opposite to the “master” earbud, which is the hardest way to get connectivity through. If we can’t resolve this, we’ll make it clear in the instruction booklet.
We made a new PCB so the top surface of the earbud would not extrude since the antenna is much bigger now.
We’ll receive those new PCBs early next week and we’ll assemble them. Then, we’ll make beta testing in Montreal. If this goes well, we’ll start pre-production ASAP. While the PCBs are being made in China, Sylvain took a bit of time off so he can come up more focus and fully ready for our upcoming production.
At this rate, we are definitely aiming to start shipping before the end of the year.
Alright take care and I’m super pump to let you know about the beta testing in the next update.
