I'm a little confused - will we find out the results of the draw (i.e if we 'won' any of the higher prizes) before the shipments arrive at our doors?

Why would that happen? Of course you have to wait for it to get to your home.

Why would what happen?
I was hoping to get an email saying something like "congratulations, you've drawn the M6 PRO IEMs".
I figured they were going to draw after the drop ended (on the description it says: "The Grand Prize drawing will be selected immediately so that everyone has a fair shot at the prize"). This made me think they were doing all the 'drawing' right after the drop and hence might let us know what we got.
I can imagine that's a lot of work notifying everyone but I just figured that was what was going to happen.
Am I wrong?

There are TONS of freely available tools out there to draw random winners from pools of people. Since they're not doing a drawing, I suspect the "drawing" headphones simply get put into the first boxes they pack and get shipped out.

I don't think that you are wrong. They have said a few times that the drawing will happen immediately following the drop. I do think that they were not expecting the massive numbers in this drop and when we swarmed them they have become a bit overwhelmed. My assumption is that they will most likely wait till the official drop end date to ensure that the numbers are correct. When a drop ends, it wouldn't be fair to us if they did the drawing immediately and then the numbers change due to a denied in card transaction or misinformation. This is why we stopped at 5000 buys but it says that there was only 4997. Most likely there were a few denials in transaction approvals. Would you want this to have been drawn and given to a person who was no longer in the drop? I know I wouldn't.

They've mentioned it numerous times that they're using an RNG so everyone has a fair chance of winning. Putting them in the first boxes they ship would make it super unfair as they're shipping out in waves based on order numbers.

Yeah, hopefully the waves will consist of more than 100-200 packages at a time. I'm #1521 so it'd be nice if they did 500-1000 package waves.

Agreed, I was #771 and now it says #775. Keeping my fingers crossed.
