NURA IS BACK WITH NURALOOP SMART EARPHONES

Recommended Posts

So the update from yesterday was (in a text only format):

 

Quote

We wanted to say ‘Thank you’ for your patience while we make the NuraLoop perfect for you. Quality takes time, and we appreciate you waiting to get the best possible version of the NuraLoop.


The original design for the NuraLoop used a new concept in earphone design. It comprised a flexible printed circuit board through the cable, a world-first for earphones — but it didn't meet our exacting standards during reliability testing.


So our team worked day and night to solve the problem. Our solution has just passed the 20,000 bend-cycles test — a new durable cable replaces the braided design, and the NuraLoop now feels more a part of our family of products.


We can’t wait to share it with you and we’re still on track to deliver all pre-orders by the end of December 2019.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding,
Team Nura
PS — would anybody like to buy a braiding machine?

 

Guess they got a bit ahead of themselves lol.  Still, better to delay than release with a flawed product.  Assuming of course what does get released works.

So I was messaging with one of the representatives as I was cancelling my Nuranow subscription, tried to get some more info...

 

The feel I got is they're expecting the pre-orders to be sent out before December is done & dusted. Seems they are set on the design issues & now a matter of suuply.

Delayed yet again January/feb.

All the clues are in their text. 
“We’re a small company etc..”.


Total empathy and love to them for being strict on quality, but as a consumer, I’m hearing “we’re guessing dates”. And that’s been proven out a couple of times now.
The latest “Jan/Feb/March” dates are the same: simply guesses.

There’s no more certainty now than there was 6 months ago.

I must say, these things look good.

I wonder what the wait would be if I pre-order now.

Do you have to pay upfront and can you back out if it gets delayed again?

As much as it is annoying, but I absolutely love the Nuraphones and I think these will deliver the goods.

@Marc

 

I haven't got the email yet either.

 

Perhaps the email is coming, or perhaps there are some orders being supplied in December (but not all orders).

I was pretty quick off the mark with my order - so I'm hopeful but waiting to be crushed with disappointment.

Read that email I posted again, I’m afraid you will be disappointed.

While it's annoying, more so because I am so intrigued to hear/see/feel/use these things, I'm not dying or relying on them.. So, I'm ok with waiting.

 

Fingers crossed its not a huge let down once we actually do receive them.

Says nothing but at least they are keeping the communication up.

I was wandering through Melb Central yesterday and the Nura stand was up and going.   1st time listener.    Very impressive before and after testing.     I won't be swapping my IEM's out any time soon but the Nura felt comfortable and the setup process was very quick and apparently efficient.

 

The young guy admitted there had been some hold ups but they hope to start shipping very, very soon.

 

The $549 asking price will be 20% off on Boxing day for info.

 

Regards Cazzesman

Not a single photo of them in hand though, and aside from one single comment about the smaller size, it reads as a re-write of the marketing material (like we do, for example, when we're talking about an upcoming product). Hmmm.

 

If we were the first to get product that thousands are waiting for (which with us and Nura both being Melbourne-based, we were expecting to happen), I'd be getting a load of photos to show them off!

My main concern is the fit. My assumption is you won't be able to use 3rd party tips, such as comply foam tips, though hope I'm wrong.

 

If they only have 3 tip fits, like the Nuraphones, someone is bound to be unlucky & not able to quite get the right fit, which is crucial with IEM's.

We’re excited to get the product in your hands with shipping commencing in February (once manufacturing restarts after Chinese New Year) and will continue throughout March. We’ll be in touch shortly to confirm your final shipping details.

Best to live with the delay. I would advise against picking up in person.
