What we’ve got planned at PUMP!

We’ve got five exciting projects for you in the works at PUMP Audio at the moment!
Well, four projects plus one idea really…
1- PUMP Zeus V3
The order is currently in production after the recent pre-sale to Friends of PUMP.
There have been a few things to sort out with the factory after they decided to increase the minimum order on us, but we quickly reached agreement and things are now running smoothly :-)
We’re currently on track to hit the target shipping date of Tuesday 11th June for the UK and Friday 15th June for the rest of the World.
2- PUMP Bluetooth Speaker
We’ve been working back and forth with the factory to perfect the sound.
This a new factory we haven’t worked with before so we’re taking our time to get it right.
The only effective way to do this to have a sample built, shipped to us in the UK, review the sound, request changes, wait for the development, another sample is built, and so the process repeats — over and over again!
As you can imagine, this is a frustratingly slow process…
So why do we do it?
Because that’s how we get the sound that our Friends and Users expect.
What I can tell you is:
a) we’re on the case;
b) we’ll only launch a PUMP Bluetooth Speaker if and when we’re 100% happy the sound meets our standards.
As I said, we’re on the case and I’ll let you know when (if!) we’re ready to launch it.
3- Secret project: TWS Headphones!
We’ve kept this a secret until now, but we’ve been working on a TWS earphones design.
We’re at a similar stage as with the Bluetooth Speaker project — i.e. we’re working on getting them to sound as amazing as the other headphones we make.
Again, I’ll keep you updated as soon as they’re ready…
Both the PUMP Bluetooth Speaker and TWS in ear headphones will probably be made available in a Friends of PUMP in pre-sale deal, like we did with PUMP Zeus V3 recently.
It worked REALLY well, and it allowed us to offer significantly cheaper pricing by doing the Launch this way!
4- Idea: Should we release an album?
Last, this is an idea that I’ve been playing around with in my mind for a while.
What if we released a compilation album?
I had the thought we could do it as a semi regular thing — maybe three or four albums per year with music we love.
If successful, we could even use it as a platform to bring talented new artists along in the future…
This is just an idea in my mind at the moment but what do you think of it?
Let me know in the comments below!
5- Invest in PUMP Audio!
It’s looking like we’ll soon be opening up to give our supporters the opportunity to buy shares in PUMP Audio!
It will be only the third time ever we’ve opened to allow Users to Invest in the company.
