I can't test all 8 motors using JetSeat Control Panel App. Why?Control Panel lets you to test vibe zones, not motors. Zones 1 and 2 have coupled motors. Hence we have 8 motors working in 6 zones.
How much noisy is JetSeat?It will not disturb neither you neighbors nor your family members, but it's not silent. If you play games using a headset, you will barely hear JetSeat motors or will not hear it at ll. If you play using speakers, you will hear JetSeat motors and that's not a good reason for RMA.
Here is a proximate to its surface record of JetSeat sound, working in a massage "waves" mode.
What if I hear a high pitch noise from the motor(s)?KW-908 motors don't like to be unused. After JetSeat was idle for a long period of time (for a month or more) you can hear a high pitch sound for the first time. Let it work for a few minutes, it should disappear soon. If it still bothers you, please contact me.
