We've fully stocked with BTunes :-).
Thanks to great demand, we are back ordered for 3.5mm model and QC15 model. We will have more inventory around Oct. 25, 2015.
Thank you for your patience.
Dear Backers and Friends,
We finally received the shipment last Friday (July 31, 2015) from DHL after 4 day delay in the US Customs and we've shipped all 3.5mm and QC15 models to you. I expect you to receive them in the next couple of days or weeks (international). Thank you for your support and patience.
I received a notice from our manufacturing partner that the 2.5mm model and QC25 models will be ready to ship to us...

Thank you all for your patience. We are almost there.
Our manufacturing partner is gearing up for assembly as of now. Barring any last minute issues, the first batch of the BTunes and low latency transmitter will be ready to ship to us at Fremont, CA on July 27th; and more will be shipped to us a few days later. To save time, we'll use DHL to air ship to us, which will take 2-3 days. As soon as we receive them, we'll start shipping to you. The general shipping schedule order will be
We will use USPS service to ship the BTunes and transmitters to you.
As the BTunes is a receiver, it should work with any transmitter: iPhone/iPad/tablets/android devices. In general, OSX supports Bluetooth really well, whereas Microsoft Windows doesn't support Bluetooth so well due to its weak driver support.
From Kickstarter update
I'd like to update you on the following three issues
We finally finished the preproduction phase, and our next phase is the mass production.
The preproduction went really well. We identified a few areas that may go wrong in the assembly process, and the final assembly process is a manual of 40 steps.
Dear Backers and Friends,
Here's a quick update on the mould and preproduction.
Our mould traveled back and forth between its maker and its user a few times. I'm so happy to tell you, we got it through. Here are some photos of the shells made with the repaired mould.
And we made some more, 100 units to be exact.
We silk printed NFC logo on them
We will fully assemble 100 units tomorrow, and then we will go through a battery of reliability tests...
We scheduled to have a preproduction run in early May, but our mould got damaged on the injection machine at the plastic injection factory. We had to fix it and restart the preproduction phase, and we are very close to get it done in the next few days.
Here's one photo that shows 1 of 3 parts of damages.
