I'm sure it's probably confirmation bias, but sometimes I swear the comments section comprises nothing but impudent children. Didn't get exactly what you wanted? Throw a tantrum in a public place until mommy gives in to shut you up.
There was a drop a several weeks ago where I thought the price wasn't quite low enough to warrant potential warranty hassle and extra wait time. I posted a comment directed to MD which clearly stated the changes that would get me into the drop. They decided against any changes, I purchased elsewhere, and the drop failed. It was later redropped at the lower price I suggested I would buy at and was a success. I paid extra for an easier warranty process and faster delivery, and Massdrop learned what the going rate for this particular gray market item really is. Everybody eventually 'won' without acting like a toddler.
Don't like the deal but want to deal with Massdrop? State clearly that you will not participate in this drop and why. Make it clear what will separate you from your money in the future. No one wants to read sniveling, butthurt comments from adults because they didn't get exactly what they wanted.
On topic, I've not heard the Deckard yet and can't comment on it's sound signature or synergy with the DT880 or T1. But in general, both Beyer cans offered have what I would consider peaky treble. The DT990 is by far the worse offender and rings with some amps and some music. I really don't ever feel the urge to pull them out and listen to them. The T1 is on the cusp of detailed/too-much-treble. Pairing them with any of the tube amps I've tried them with make them pretty enjoyable, though. Bass is decent and soundstage is fantastic. Just my impressions.
(OK, I read the comments to this drop again, and they haven't yet gotten *that* bad, but this sort of behavior is prevalant on MD, at least in the 'audiophile' drops. Mature posters, please excuse me for venting.)
Thanks for the comment.
To give everyone a sliver of insight, it's always a learning process when we're offering new products on Massdrop. Generally, the manufacturer/distributor set the drop points and quantities with some feedback from our employees. Sometimes it works out fantastically, other times not so much. We pick out insightful or useful comments to let our suppliers know why the drop did so well or poorly, and then we coordinate from there.
I'd rather err on the side of offering more cool stuff for members to voice their opinions as opposed to not listing anything at all. Thanks for letting me know a T1 drop is in demand, I'll definitely be working on it. :)
its not hard by using toes to figure out T1 is much more in demand than "Audeze Deckard", wtf is that????
"T1 is where its at brah," Jokes aside, a low price T1 would definitely be something that the audiophile community is interested in. A re-drop of the V-Moda M100s might enlighten your average consumer crowd for contemporary music.
