Updates and the schedule for our next batch!
Jacob Flood, October 23 2020
Just a quick touchbase, as we prepare to ship your units.
Many of you have already filled out and confirm your orders via the BackerKit survey – thank you for this. We have now locked a batch of orders, charged the credit cards where necessary, and locked in those addresses.
For those ~3000 backers that have completed the survey so far, you will no longer be able to change your order or update your addresses.
As we mentioned, the next batch will be approximately 500 units – the exact number will depend on the final scrap rate. We are still waiting for the final count from the factory quality team concerning the latest production batch. These units will be shipped to the backers who have locked in their addresses, following the order by backer number as closely as possible (adapted very slightly to favor multiple orders to the same countries).
Orders will be shipped from our factory Monday, October 26. Naturally, due to COVID19, there are some additional shipping constraints. As such, we can’t precisely predict when you will get your unit – likely a few weeks after that. That said, we CAN’T WAIT for you to receive your units – please send us a picture of you and your Enophone by email or on social media when it arrives!
When you receive your units, you will be asked to participate in the extended beta testing of the app. We have received invaluable feedback from the previous batch of beta testers and have integrated what we learned into a new version of the app that will be released soon. We can’t wait to hear your experience of trying it out for the first time.
Following this batch, our team will take a few weeks to analyze the assembly process and solve any issues we encountered during the production of this batch. Once that is completed, we will proceed with the assembly of the next batch of 2500 units. After that, it’s rinse and repeat to ship the remaining units!
Thank you again for your ongoing support. We’re in the final stretch now, and can’t wait for all of you to experience all of what Eno has to offer!
And of course, to finish it off, here are some great photos of the assembly process as it nears completion on Monday!
Thank you again for your support. Wishing everyone good health in these difficult times. Stay safe!
Lots of love,
– The Eno Team
