People that are buying these headphones for reasons like "it's exclusive" and "I thought there's only going to be 1,000 of them in existence" are buying them for the wrong reasons. Buy these headphones if you want your music to sound better, not if you want to feel special for having a "rare" item in your possession.
You want some "rare" or special headphones that aren't super expensive? Get a pair modded. That's my take on it. It was stated that the drop could even increase to 2000. So people shouldn't be upset that they didn't read.
That's what I plan to do when the "Purplehearts" arrive, is to send the "Mahognies" for the mod. Then,the others afterwards. The mods will cost as much, if not more than the cost of the headphones.
Boy did this thread get off track. I, as in most of us are running on "blind faith" or more like "deaf faith" that either pair will live up to the hype. But, it's hard to ignore the fact of the price difference. My AKG K7XX can atest to that. They are worth every cent I paid for them. But hey it's only money, and it's a honest hobby. Almost laughable a half deaf person has a audiophile hobby. If massdrop doesn't nothing else it teaches us patience. A year from now we be here telling the next poor souls how geat they sound, and 5 months isn't really that long. When we finally get them we will all "have wood" sorry couldn't resist the pun.
