As exciting as this is, I didn't realize we are to wait until -December- for these...it should have been much more prominently emphasized that we are paying for a product 5 months in advance. Being new to this site and all, I was under the impression these would ship after 7/30 per the "expiration" of the drop.
On massdrop everything has a different shipping time, you have to read the description of every item.
I realize that...now. Throughout the entire purchase and checkout process, there was no warning or indication that I'd be waiting months for the product. All the Google search results pertained to the last drop, which was much, much shorter between pledge and payoff. Subsequent reading of the comments confirms as much, but, again, I feel like this "fine print" element was too subtle.
Dude you didn't read the description of the item on a site that you're new to, that's on you. These are $115 cheaper than on Amazon and $300 less than the MSRP, you didn't think there was a catch?
Their FB advertisement is worded to suggest they ship soon. I've never seen a shopping site that has Kickstarter level wait times. At least KS has prominent shipping estimates. Here, the first time I see anything is -after- payment. The level of savings is irrelevant, the nature of the deal and the checkout process is where I have a problem. It should say *SHIPS IN DECEMBER* right near "buy now" (it means later). I don't know of many sites that don't explicitly specify it when the item is a PREORDER.
I understand your frustration, but you can always go ahead and cancel if you're not interested.
To me, these are a luxury item and getting them at such a significant discount makes the wait well worth it. But I also have another pair of high-end cans to hold me over (Meze 99 Classics)
My issue is more with site design, proper warning, and the order of presented information. I agree on the deal being worth it, I just wish they would be clearer so I didn't get my hopes up. As it is, it did indeed feel like "a catch" rather than the upfront understanding. I am in the market -now- and will have to get something to tide me over.
