Very interesting stuff happened during this first month of the year.
So as Sylvain predicted, we got a fully functional pair of earbuds that worked flawlessly (woohoo!).
It worked perfectly on Chris… but not on everyone. Sylvain and Hoang (RF specialist) got some disconnects from time to time, which is pretty annoying when you listen to music. Why? Sylvain and Hoang have a deeper ear, so the earbud goes deeper. As a result, the impedance changes which equals to a less stable connection.
Hoang suggested that we tuned the earbuds to match our average customer, which will result inevitably in a portion of backers having some disconnects.
Sylvain & I were definitely not comfortable with this suggestion.
Then Sylvain came up with super interesting ideas to work this problem around:
The results thus far:
We are really excited about these options. Like most of the truly wireless earbuds out there, they have problems to get rock-solid connectivity (unless they are big in the ear or out of the ear). We might have found the recipe to get this right 😀
