Crowdfunding is always a risky venture, both for the creators as well as the backers. Being successfully funded, even raising three to five to ten times the goal, is never an assurance that the promised product will be delivered. The bigger the ambition, the bigger the risks and the OSSIC X is definitely a big one. It promised to do for audio what VR is doing for visuals. Sadly, that promise is dead as OSSIC, the startup behind the headphones, reveals it will no longer be able to deliver the remaining headphones as it has completely run out of funds.
