Glad the drop finished with 250+. I went ahead and got 2, I just hope I don't get 2 of the same IEMs (2 HEM2s). The worst feeling is getting 2 of the same things you already got...
I don't want to open a can of worms but I did ponder about the true randomness of the drawing. I also thought that those ordering two pairs will be given (by whoever is in charge) one pair of HEM2 and one of the higher end (4/6/8) as a second (which is only fair, to be honest). I, personally, did not double down on the gamble.
I'm not very enthusiastic about raffles in general as I've witnessed how "random" winners are chosen in some of them IRL (not implying or trying to cast doubts on this or any other drops).
I have been in 7 "IEM Grab Bags" drops in the past through MD. I always bought 2 pairs and there has been 2 instances where I received the same model. They did state that joining into a second pair is still a separate chance by itself, which shows that you will have that unfortunate chance of getting 2 of the same pairs.
On the other hand, the 2 grab bags that I received with the same model had a fairly large pool of people (3000+). I was one of the unlucky ones that received the leftover of what they had.
All in all it's random and it really is a gamble.
"I have been in 7 "IEM Grab Bags"" - how many ears have you got "to feed" ;)
Don't forget, "I always bought 2 pairs".
Haha, I like to give them away as cheap gifts. Everyone that I gave them to loves them than the alternative i.e: skullcandy. I'll keep buying them just for the fun in the RNG Lottery.
I will keep the Nuforce IEMs though! I'll probably sell off a pair if I get 2 of the same pair, maybe give them away to someone, who knows..
If you get two 6's or 8's, and can't think of anyone to give it to, I'd be happy to take the off your hands ;). With my luck, even the 4's will probably be an upgrade ;).
