Massdrop educating their members, "If you don't join the very first drop, prepare to pay more."
That's not exactly fair when Sennheiser set the pricing. But it's also true that a lot of people put it in their carts the first time around and couldn't get transactions to go through (looking at myself here...), and for those people, who waited for months for a re-drop and then got handed one-day-early access to a $50 more expensive drop that might not sell out anyways as a consolation prize.... well, I'm taking it but it still sucks.
do you understand how supply and demand works? It 50 thousand people want something you're selling and you only have 7.5 thousand, what would you do?
It makes sense for them to increase the price to prevent the same problems as the last drop.
The experience of the last drop should have been enough to educate you that $200 was underpriced. You don't have a right to pay $200 for $250 headphones just because they were sold for $200 once upon a time. Have you had much luck buying gas at 75 cents a gallon because that was the price in the 1970s?
Props to Massdrop for reverting to the original price. Happy to be proven wrong (and save $$ :) )
