2 points will be covered in this update:
The ‘audit’ we requested from the RF engineer (Hoang Nguyen) on our electronics, more specifically the RF (antenna) circuit, has proven to be a good move so far. Here are the general comments he made to me:
Email from the RF specialist, Chris goes in more details in the video update, see it here.
Now, what are the results so far?
The connectivity is improving. It used to be a few inches away without disconnection and now it’s about 10 feet. However, we will feel ready to move into pre-production with the back pocket no drop works out. It means that putting your phone in your back pocket while having the earbuds in your ears will occur zero disconnect. What is really bugging is that we used to have better results last year but for some unknown reasons yet, we struggle to replicate that. However, our understanding of all this tech is deepening so we look forward to getting results soon enough.
Testing is not yet over with this equipment. It needed a special connector and we recently received it.
We wished we could have better news for this year-end, but unfortunately, we don’t.
However, we did have promising results at the very end of today but let’s keep it cool and see if we manage to replicate that. If we do, we’ll keep you inform fast.
Take care guys and have a good holiday time!
