Axent Wear Update 2 by yuumei Axent Wear Update 2 by yuumei


Hi Axent Wear​ backers, this is a follow up update for this post.

My co-founder and I are still working to resolve some internal differences. I'm sorry again for the lack of official updates on the Axent Wear site. As you might know, I am only part of the company and not in full control of all decisions. I hope my co-founder and I will be able to officially update everyone soon, but I cannot make any promises since I am not in control of my co-founder's decisions. In the mean time I will make sure to update everyone as much as I can on my own accounts.

I have noticed there are some rumors and misinformation floating around the internet, so I want to clarify a few things. A website stated we estimate the delivery date to be in September. We never made that announcement and I've tried contacting the website but they did not respond. We also noticed that a lot of e-mails went missing when sent to the hello@axentwear.com e-mail, so we've switched over to AxentWear@gmail.com. Please use this new e-mail for all future customer service inquires.

There are also a lot of misunderstandings about the situation with my co-founder. I can only say that it is very complicated and my attorneys and business consultants are doing everything we can to resolve the issue. People have been suggesting potential solutions in regards to my co-founder, and while I appreciate everyone's attempt to help, please understand that everything that can be done, has been done. There are a lot of complicated legal limitations to consider which is why my attorneys have been working hard on it. I also want to assure everyone that I am paying for the legal fees myself, and I would only use the backer's money to make the headphones.

With that said, we're currently looking at manufacturing proposals. While I can't make any promises. I hope to be able to officially update everyone soon with more information on when the headphones will be delivered.

I understand the delay comes as a disappointment to many who wanted the headphones as a birthday present or gift for loved ones. Manufacturing is a complicated process with a lot of unforeseen difficulties. I'm sorry again for the delay, and I completely understand if you would like a refund. Please send your name, paypal e-mail address, and order date to our customer service at AxentWear@gmail.com and we will process your refund within 3 business days.

I will continue to do my best to update everyone and deliver the headphones in light of these complications with my co-founder. Thank you all again for the continued patience and support.

I don't know what the conflict is about or who's being the unreasonable one in it, but I have to say, thank you so much for your transparency, it really makes me feel better about supporting you and makes me want to keep supporting you as long as it takes. It's much better than silence!

basically her co-founder is being as difficult as possible. the co-founder, victoria hu, has locked yuumei out of their accounts, changed the passwords, and has threatened to sue yuumei for telling the rest of us what's up, which is why there haven't been that many updates until recently. this whole thing can't go and will not go through unless victoria gets her act together. i'm really disappointed because victoria is the same person who's dad was the car inventor that was arrested and is trapped in china thanks to corruption. yuumei made a little comic for her and it's on this website. i just never expected someone yuumei loved and cherished dearly to act so horrid, especially with other people's money. yuumei couldn't have seen this coming, none of us have. it's terrible. 

i hope everyone is able to get their headphones soon.

I have wanted these headphones since I saw your concept for them on dA I-don't-even-know-how-many years ago. I will stand by you and your product until the day my pair of freaking awesome headphones comes at my doorstep. That day and beyond. I've no idea what issues you're going through with your co-founder, but I'm sure you can make it through this. I have faith in you and your business, Yuumei. Good luck. And thank you so much for keeping us updated. <3

This reminds me of a girl I was in love with. A little black flame lights up in my heart when I watch this. A bittersweet burning goes through my chest.
I miss her, I love her...and I like this picture.

I'm fine with a delay as long as I get them! I'm so excited for them and I know I'll love them when I finally get them that I don't mind the wait.
But the sooner the better so I hope it all works out!

The drawing is great, I wish yo had a digital coloring tutorial. You made that live drawing/coloring during a certain con earlier but I haven't found any vids of it or someone who filmed it... I wanna see how you color so bad ;_;

Btw... what did Victoria do? I have no idea where I should update myself on that (I didn't understand what exactly happened when reading the Facebook posts). I know there's some problems with what you both wanna choose as manufacturer's options, etc. But since I'm not experienced in this subject, I fail to see the need for an attorney in such a situation, so I think it might be bigger than what I think, yet I have no idea... so yeah. Not trying to create rumors, just asking random stuff and hoping it gets sorted out for you, I hope people won't quote anything I say.
Oh well, I won't try to sniff up stuff any further in that, I just hope it gets resolved (and that what your co-founder is trying to do is not something bad... that'd be nasty for you if something bad happens and you get associated with it =\ I wish you had full power over Axent Wear :x)

This is an interesting piece for various reasons:
- it's nice (I like the lighting on her face)
- it shows that fantasy and reality are two different things (those headphones look cute here but a little over-the-top in real life imho).

This is the risk we undertake when backing something on Kickstarter, that there will be delays, hitches in the production and delivery of the promised product, and sometimes the team behind the project falls apart. But I believe in you, Yuumei! Assuming that it doesn't get to the point where it's no longer possible to manufacture the headsets, I personally see no reason not to stick to my guns and have patience! The final product will be well worth the wait. :heart: :tighthug:

Ah, that explains why there has been no updates at the axentwear site. Been patiently waiting for news and voila! I'm really thankful that you've at least let us know through here and Facebook. I pray that everything will work out for you and those involved in the project in the end. My friends and I meanwhile will continue to wait as we all fully support this project. Cheers!
