Hello everyone! Thank you all so much again for the incredible amount of support! We are now over 300% funded!
As a special reward, we’ll be hosting some giveaway contests soon so keep your eye out for a chance to win a free pair of headphones in the next the few day!
We are less than a week into our crowdfunding and we did not expect to be so far along already. Rest assured that we will use the extra money to make sure the headphones will have the best sound quality possible! This also means we are still negotiating with the manufacturer with new order numbers that we did not expect to have. As soon as the new negotiation ends, we will be releasing more specs.
In other news, we would like to address some common questions. A lot of people have mentioned the lack of stretch goals for hitting over our original mark. The truth is all the stretch goals we were planning to have, such as adding extra colors like purple, a mic, over-the-ear cushioning and detachable cord, have already been included in the original package. After reading over everyone’s suggestions, we decided to include all these features even before launching our crowdfunding. That is why we did not have any new stretch goals since we decided to go the extra mile and include all the new features in the original package.
However, there are some features such as changing RGB lights that we decided not to pursue. The issue with that is the RGB colors will look washed out in daylight. Single colored headphones can have color tinted plastic that will look good no matter where you are. Existing RGB headphones are made for indoor gaming so color brightness isn’t an issue, otherwise all the colors would look faded when you go outside. We decide that it’s best for the headphones to have one color that looks great everywhere instead of many colors that can only look ok indoors. We also want to focus all of our attention and funds on making the existing features as high quality as possible and delivering the headphones to everyone as soon as possible. We noticed a lot of crowdfunding in the past that included too many stretch goals weren’t able to handle making the extra features without delaying for many months.
With that said, we have been reading everyone’s suggestions and decided to add a new stretch goal. Right now the original headphones comes with a mic attached to the cord, but if we can raise over $1.5 million, we will be able to upgrade the inline mic to a detachable gaming boom mic! If we reach that goal, everyone can have a high quality mic for gaming and online chatting, and easily remove it when you head out to party!
Thank you all again! We look forward to bringing you the best cat ear headphones ever! Help us reach our stretch goal at http://igg.me/at/AxentWear/x/7458195 And keep an eye open for our giveaway that’s coming soon!
