Leatherweight – The Sound Material

Designed out of a well crafted material, the Leatherweight is a Bluetooth wireless speaker that gives you a lot more than audio. The team wanted to pack good sound into a luxurious form factor but in a way such that it won’t cost you too much of a fortune. Their purpose is to make Leatherweight a luxurious speaker brought to you at an affordable price. In order to give this luxury a reality, they combined the rigidity of metal with the flexibility of leather. There comes Leatherweight – one of the coolest speakers you’ll get at this range! Carry it to your parties and make the most of your audio experience that way. Let’s rock the floor with the best music in town coming from a stylish speaker too.

I am stilling waiting for my Leatherweight, I still haven't received mine!
Juliane Heynert
I still haven’t received mine and it’s been a year since I heard from you guys.
Victoria Alefosio
I only received 1 of 2 of my speakers :-(
Trenelle
I still haven't received my speaker yet. I was told a few months ago that they were in production. Can I have an update??
Joris Kemel
Hi there, still curious how long it will take to contact me?
A refund would work too, if that's easier for you.
Thank you
Zachary
I did receive mine. Unfortunately it never worked properly and completely stopped working about a week after I received it. I contacted Gleeman and they said they'd be sending me a new one, once the issues were sorted out. That was months ago. I still haven't received my replacement unit. Kinda bummed.
Gaal
I finally received my Leatherweight, have tested it for about five minutes thus far, and it works great. There seem to have been some problems with the logistics, but Gleeman solved it and arranged a new shipment to me. Thanks!
Gleeman
@ Gaal - Well contact you via Email and on shipment progress. Thanks.
@ Reuben Franta - Well contact you individually via Email. Thanks.
@ Joris Kemel - We will contact you individually. Thanks for keep waiting.
@ Ben McArdle - We will contact you individually. Thanks for keep waiting.
Gaal
I see that you are selling them from your website. When will you deliver mine?
Gaal
I haven't received mine either... The last I heard from them was June 28 when they told me that the second batch was done and that they would get me the "T/N soon". But then again; they've told me five times already that they soon will ship. I've been told four times since February that I will receive a T/N soon.
Reuben Franta
I'm still waiting guys it's now the end of July and you have not sent me jack. What's the deal? You just expecting your customers to disappear while you pocket the money?
Ben McArdle
Hello there. Have the new batch been despatched yet?
Joris Kemel
Hi Gleeman, I wasn't aware that deliveries had already started.
I have received nothing yet, is there a delay?
Royden Hearn
Hi we love our leatherweight. It is awesome. But the power charging canle plug isn't and we can't charge it now as it appears to have broken inside the moulded plug. Can we please arrange another charging cable? Thx.
Gleeman
Hi Kickstarters, It took us a while to handle the financial problem, and the second batch is on the line, this will cover all the remaining orders, and we are going so send them out by this month, sorry about keeping you waiting for so long, we will let you know the status once it's sent
WONG WING HO ALEX
I still have not receive mine! Why?
Reuben Franta
I messaged you but have not heard back either
Reuben Franta
Haven't received mine yet. Still waiting
Zachary
Mine has completely stopped working. Turns on, indicator light flashed, Bluetooth even connects. But no sound come on. no start up audio. nothing. I've come to like this little speaker, in select applications, but unfortunately it's now trash. Very sad that the build quality didnt match the beautiful exterior.
Gleeman
Dear Backers, There are several issues occurred in different deliveries, if you still cannot got the item, please use the messaging system so we can discuss individually, sorry about any inconveniences caused

Hello, I am backer in HONG KONG, and I have NOT recieve mine, may you follow my case? Thanks!
Marc Botts
WTF?
Henry Lee
i haven't receive anthing in Hong Kong! please follow !!
Mohammed
Thanks. I got it. Very good product.
Zachary
Update: THE GOOD- my initial impressions has slightly changed. I have found that this speaker really shines with accustic music. I have actually really enjoyed listening to this genre on it. THE BAD- Unfortunately the speaker keeps cutting out. After restarting it several times and reconnecting the Bluetooth I resorted to shaking the speaker. Unbelievably, this worked. As best as I can figure the speaker inside must have a loose connection. Hopefully it will keep working, but I'm not holding my breath. Im conflicted with this little guy... Every time I find something to like, I find something that drives me crazy.. Hopefully the good will eventually outweigh the bad.
Neitzche
Yay, finally got mine. Thx.
Neitzche
Still nothing here in Canada
Zachary
Just got mine the other day here in Oregon. It looks great and feels premium. Sound quality is sadly not up to snuff. It's bass is nearly non-existent. It does have great clarity, can hear fine details on acoustic tracks. I've also noticed that when I play music at full volume it has a tendency to shut off. A Logitech UE Mini boom ($30-$65) provides way better range in sound and is potentially much cheaper. I was hoping the sound of the Leatherweight would match the aesthetic. Unfortunately, at this point, a more accurate name would be Paperweight...
Marc Botts
any word on US delivery?
Zachary
should I expect to receive tracking information for my package or will it just show up?
Gleeman
Hi Kickstarters, Due to the restriction of security protocol, we cannot include any product information in the package, otherwise they will reject the delivery, but even so, some of the parcels are still rejected..., for that we have to re-arrange the surface mail delivery again and that's why we can't deliver the instruction manual with the device, but you can download the pdf version here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B97zhSBstMP8Z0ROdXZRTEpWcHc/view… sorry about that
Sian Johnston

John Aggerholm

KR;) John
Christina Paine
Fab speaker ! Thanks :)
yoann

instructions would have been appreciated, though... it changes the tracks when i try to change the volume... pretty annoying..
Christian Witt
Thanks for the nice Speaker. Sound is very good. It arrives in Germany last Week ��
Reuben Franta
Gleeman if you can please email me. I don't even know if you have the correct address for me since I moved recently. Thank you
Thorsten Michel
Mine Leatherweight arrived yesterday (Germany). Good work, good sound.
The double functions of the buttons (back/forward and vol. up/down) seems a tricky in the beginning. Thank you!
Romelia Yau
Hi there, I received my leatherweight today but unfortunately my device seems to be an lucky faulty one. The volume just keep going up and down, fading in and out. I can video it down and email it to you? Thanks.
Romelia
Marc Whiteley
UK backer here - mine arruved this week. A little smaller than I imagined but that's fine. It seems solid and well put together and looks really nice. The sound is pretty good. There's plenty of bass there and it didn't distort at full volume, which was pretty loud. Decent bit of kit.
Gregory Perez
First off thank you Gleeman for restoring my faith in Kickstarter and sending out the product. Now on to the speaker! Omg it is absolutely amazing the sound, the look, and the quality!!! It's my new favorite speaker. I truly enjoy the listening experience I get from the speaker. Thank you! Sincerely Greg P.
Maulik Patel
Got mine 2 days back and simply love love love the quality. Great work Gleeman it was worth the wait. Also can i charge it directly through the switch board using USB cable or will be too high power.
Gleeman
Sorry to Hong Kong backers, you guys are supposed to be the first one to receive the product, but sadly the custom locked up the batch of the product for no reason while I was trying to hand carry it through the border, we just got back that batch yesterday, and we will send it to all Hong Kong backers tomorrow. For the rest part of the world, you should be receiving the parcel in different date, please PM us if you have any query about it again, sorry about the delay and any inconveniences caused, hope you will enjoy the sound and material of leatherweight, and we look forward to your comments, and thanks for the comments and patience so far, this helps a lot for our future development, this could never happen without your support!
Xerxes Yip
Just wanna check if any of you get the silver and black one? Thx!
Ry Rodriguez
Got mine! Love it! Great build quality and the sound is good. Surprised at how loud it can get. Thanks guys!
Andrew Coulter
Ah not to worry got mine today via standard post, it's great really pleased with it. Smaller than I had envisaged, it's well finished, good sound even at low and high volumes. Still working out what the button combo's do but that's not a big issue at all. Worth the wait. Thank you Gleeman.
Johnson
HK backer ... doesn't get yet.........
Andrew Coulter
Quick question for the UK backers that have got theirs, how did it arrive? Was it royal mail or one of the other delivery services? Thanks in advance.
