MD.. can we get confirmation or at least clarification that 2,000 units of the Fostex/Purplehearts is all that will be available? Or.. will we, like in other limited drops, see another 1,000+ limited drop in a few months?
I understand that all of us should be buying these as Audiophile members looking for the best sound/look but the limited release does carry some weight. That being said, when a drop is seen to be limited (I do understand the language "this drop is limited to" which only specifies the drop and not the item itself) but then we see multiple drops of the same item as being "limited" again, it cheapens the word limited to a very high degree. I may be rambling and I am sure this point has been made in other threads but just offering my 2 cents.
I think we've established that "limited" means "you will not get this anywhere other than Massdrop".
I have a hard time understanding you people who think that the fewer number people who join the drop, the xxx amount of cents higher your potential resale of your Fostex will be, when 99% of you are never going to sell it. The whole exclusivity circlejerk in the audiophile scene makes me cringe every time I see it pop up. Who cares? It's a pair of headphones that you put on your head to listen to music...
If your goal is to make a profit off of this drop: rather than putting your assets into Massdrop custom products I would recommend putting on your big boy pants and buying stocks, bonds, and real estate like a normal person.
I do agree that Massdrop should get rid of the word limited in their listing though because this stupid discussion occurs every time a new custom product of theirs comes out.
When did I ever say that my plan is to flip these for a profit afterwards? Please don't assume things like this.
I do plan on keeping these for the long haul as my only closed-back headphones. I only mention the limited because it does make the item itself a little more special (in my mind mentally anyway) to know that only 2,000 other people have it as opposed to everyone on the street.
Personally, I cannot wait to plug these into my Schiit stack and burn these in. They look amazing.
They are very likely to drop again in the future. Usually few months after MD ships the first badge of the order in Aug.
