That shipping date seems to be spooking a lot of people.
Is a 7-month (drop ends in four weeks from now) wait very long for the audio community? I've mainly bought mech keyboard stuff, for which 7 months seems standard, with kits and keycaps falling between six and nine months.
I wouldn't say the lead times in audio are as bad as mech keys, but there have been other marathon drops in audio. Sennheiser HD 6XX comes to mind.
Don't think Massdrop is overly concerned with that; at 100 sold 1 hour and a half in and 480 cap, I'm pretty sure they'll still sell out regardless of the lengthy production time lead.
Yes, it is similar to the Massdrop IEM. Reception was cold due to long lead times, but massdrop filled the order themselves and started shipping daily once the order arrived and they more than doubled their sales in just a few days.
Some of us even woke up early to score one of them low serial, ship time or not. x_X
Is better than trying to score a Benchmark at under 1k.
