In August? Is this for real?
Yep. I got in on the January / February batch of 1,000 units and the estimated ship date was (and still is) July 13th. You have to keep in mind that there are literally thousands of customers ahead of you.
But always remember: The sooner you order them, the sooner they will arrive. ;)
Hope this helps :)
You raise some valid points. Paying 5 months in advance just feels insane. Hope massdrop won't go under by then. 😂
You are paying about six to eight months in advance for quality. If they mass produce it where it can always be in stock, the quality of the product will crap out since they cannot afford to pay people to test durability, the clarity and accuracy, comfort, and overall quality of each and every headphone.
It's the same reason why real human blacksmiths must be paid quite a bit and far in advance. Same concept: Paying for quality.
But again, keep in mind that these are phenomenal headphones for how little you are paying for it. Hell, these cans can even contend with headphones five times it's price point.
Tldr; you're paying for quality. They could rush it and it won't be as good and it'd leave a bad reputation on their company. Also realize that these cans can compete with others that cost five times it's price point.
This is Massdrop, not Amazon. They're group buys.
Massdrop collects our money, then puts in a bulk order with the manufacturer, cash up front, for a big wholesale discount that is passed on to us. You have to wait for the funds to be collected and transferred, and then for the huge order to be special-made, recieved by Massdrop, and then distributed to the group.
Ordered mine in late January, and I am getting them in two weeks. lol
I don't know, but they are currently on their way here from Germany. Should get them next week.
