If this comes with the power port and input on the rear and comes with a 1/4" headphone jack, you can count me in as a buyer. Otherwise I'll wait for other options.
My suggestion is remove the battery option and replace it with the power and input on the rear, allow options between 120V and 240V, and offer an option between 3.5mm and 1/4" headphone jacks. Also adding an RCA output wouldn't be a bad idea either if at all possible.
Not sure if all of this has been addressed in previous comments, however I'd be willing to bet a lot of people would agree with me on this.

Massdrop has already come forward that they won't do anything that isn't in the original design. So, no rear power, 1/4 jacks etc. I really do wish they'd let us know about the 240v option. I would've joined last week if that was made clear

A 15VAC 240v power adapter cant be all that expensive for you in your local region as that is what everyone around you is using. Dont think of it as an additional fee, just part of the overall savings you are getting by the low price of this drop. Its still going to be cheaper then getting an o2 with 240v from any other source.

I would disagree. In Australia you will need to pay at least an additional AUD $30-$35 or approx. US$21-$25 for a 15VAC 240V power supply locally (If they aren't out of stock). Then after you factor in the weak AUD exchange rate, postage costs and the need to buy two 9V NiMH rechargeable batteries if you want to go portable the savings become negligible.

AC power adapters aren't really a common thing. If you go around your house and check most if not all adapters are DC.

Like bickel72 said: after all said and done I wouldn't save much and isn't that the reason to participate?

so again, lots of people asked about 220/240V power adapter, and Massdrop employees decided to simply ignore the question while posting stupid responses about headphones for country music. Given that it's less than 24 hours till this drop ends, I'll be cancelling my order and suggest you do the same if you are outside US. Unless as @bickel72 mentioned you want to spend hours on trying to buy a power supply that does not produce noise, has matching plug and is reasonably priced. Oh and yes, the savings will be negligible if you factor in postage posts, customs, tax etc.

I cancelled my order too. Communication with this drop was very lacking. Why can't they answer simple question.

I'm sure you can find one online that can be shipped to you and still come out at a good discount. Come on, it's just power it does not need to be a fancy adapter.

I just did, and with shipping of the adapter plus the import tax on the o2 I'm better of waiting. Perhaps where you live these things are easy to come by cheaply. Here? Not so much. Also, why would I pay for an adapter I will literally throw out the minute I receive it? November is right around the corner so I'll wait it out ☺

Damn man I'm sorry to hear that, at least it was confirmed that there would be a version you can get in on down the line.
