Yikes, first experience with Massdrop is a disaster. Two hours straight of trying and not one order went through. Lesson learned, I won't be wasting any more time with this.
I've been with massdrop for well over a year, first time I've seen a drop get so flooded it nearly crashed the servers. Not all drops are like this.
Yeah, I would imagine it isn't always like this. Fact of the matter is, I started trying to purchase right at 6am PST and wasted two hours but have nothing to show for it. My time is worth more than whatever savings this deal would have given me. Lesson learned.
Yeah, massdrop transactions are typically smooth. I have experienced this with limited releases on numerous sites, especially during black friday sales, but this is a first for me on massdrop. Not that surprising, but sucks none-the-less.
I hear ya. As someone who has snatched up highly limited & exclusive Mondo prints, and purchased great seats for high-profile concerts as soon as they go on sale, I expected to have a good shot at this. Quite frankly, not having these headphones isn't going to change my life-- I was more curious than anything. But if I do decide to purchase a pair in the future it won't be from this site.
If this release follows the example of other exclusive headphone releases on massdrop, they will sell these again, and again, and again.
and to your point, I am 100% sure that ebay / headfi / amazon marketplace will have many pairs as soon as they are delivered, if you don't want to deal with massdrop directly.
Thanks, Reach. I'm sure they will re-drop these again, and I'm sure they'll be easier to get in the future once the hype dies down. This was just a really bad first impression for me and many others it appears. Which is a shame because I was actually kind of excited to be a part of this. Oh well.
