I'm sure you believe that, but you are wrong. I looked at the listing before it opened, and was one of the first 10 to purchase the morning of the drop. It always said August 5 (until it was changed to August 3).

ok ...so then you think it is a figment of my imagination....something I did not see with my eyes and write on my purchase notes for credit card records....sorry...you are wrong in saying I did not see something that I know I did

No, not a figment of your imagination, but it's clear you made some sort of mistake (perhaps looking at the wrong drop/page).
Let's see, the drop actually occurred when this discussion was on page 8. On page 6 we have the following comment from LxJLthr411: "These looked very promising...UNTIL...I realized it is a 5 MONTH wait time?!?"
Then, on page 8, minutes after the drop opened, we have from B4uzZz: "Estimated ship date is Aug 5, 2016."
You are the only person participating in this discussion who claims to have seen a May delivery date. My own experience indicates that you are mistaken. Likewise posts on this very discussion. I have evidence on my side, but have seen no one come forward supporting your claim.
Nothing personal, we all make mistakes.

all I can tell you is that when I joined this drop on April 27th that is what the drop said

I likewise joined the drop on April 27th. I did the drop just as it opened, noticing immediately after that it said "10 PURCHASED". And that it also said "Estimated ship date is Aug 5, 2016."
I can't explain what you think you saw, and I realize that nothing I say (nor any evidence I post) will dissuade you from your belief, so no point in continuing this. Maybe someone else will come forth who experienced the same mirage.

I am also almost certain that I saw an earlier release date before the drop was extended. I may be mistaken but I'm pretty positive that I would not have even bothered with this drop if I was aware there was a 5 month wait. There are enough options on the web to not warrant waiting for that kind of ship date.

I joined on May 14th and only remember seeing an August ship date. I really don't understand why we are arguing this though. I've waited this long for keycaps from here so it's not a huge deal.

I have been a part of this drop since April. Being a "huge deal" is subjective, perhaps it was a technical error? This entire forum would be moot if people didn't express their thoughts on the drop. Why are you arguing?

I never saw the April ship date always said August for me and I viewed this hours after it being posted & especially first time reading this description and seeing that mass drop x hifiman where making these together similar to mass drop and AKG with the k7xx you should of seen that they where leaving these open to see how many they where going to sell to see how many they where going to need to manufacture which takes time to produce then even longer as it sits in a container on a ship crossing the pacific then customs

It was never in April, It was Aug. Date never changed, you misread.

I wasn't arguing, I was just stating what I saw.
