I received mine today, listening to them right now. One thing to note, they haven't stayed true to their promise about serial numbers. I realise it might have been due to the mix-up in shipping, but still. I got #637; was supposed to get one below #300.
It's too early to give a review now, but the first impression is good. The build quality is decent. I feel the cable connector could have been built better, I feel it's kinda cheap. The cable itself isn't very exciting either. I'll probably end up buying a coiled cable anyway - I know you can coil this yourself but since I'm not very satisfied with the cable quality I thought I should buy a new one.
Overall, the workmanship is *not* flawless / top notch, but then again this was $200. I might update this later.

By the looks of it you were #257 which means you will not get anything below #300.
The cap was 250.

It was changed to #265 and below, actually:
"Previously, the person who was shown as #250, actually was purchasing unit #265 because a few people prior to them had purchased multiple units. We ran the math and for "early joiners" the maximum offset would have be 15 places (and will likely be less if a couple other people leave). This means that your new star is likely a little higher, but we're moving the guaranteed serial number up to 265 to make sure that people originally covered are still covered. So, anyone who has a star less than 265, will get a serial number that is less than 300. (The 35 unit differential is a result of sample units coming off the production line and getting sent to reviewers, etc.)"

This was changed mid-drop to 260, the numbers were pushed back because some people had ordered more than one items. I was #249 before this, got pushed back to #257 (still within 260).
So let's say buyer #1 bought 3 pieces, buyer #2 was still #2 on the list when he should have been #4. This was amended mid-drop and the cutoff pushed to 260 (or was it 265? Don't remember).
