Hey guys, let me check on this, at our last internal product meeting, I heard a price that was definitely better than $309. The guy in charge of this is on vacation (nice of him to setup the buy and then leave town). I'll get back to you guys soon.
I am only 'committing' based on the expectation that a material improvement is going to be made -- don't want to get left out in that case due to some unknown quantity limit like there was for the Hifiman drops.<br /><br />Also, it's surprising (and unfortunate) to see so many drops lately where there's only a single price point. Unless this is about the vendor imposing a quantity limit, it kind of defeats the premise of Massdrop's special (and very cool) take on the 'group buy' concept, no?<br /><br />And 25 is an incredibly low lone 'negotiation point', given the demand hinted at by the announcement.
Also, just want to add -- there might've been some confusion stemming from discussions on the recent voting polls related to this. I know that at least Steve had gone through our "Mid-Range Audiophile Headphones" thread (he responded there last night) where there'd been several references to the HD650 Black Friday pricing being around $320, or $340 w/ $50 iTunes gift card, and some people expressing hope for that TYPE of relative/proportional discount if we ever got a HD6*0 drop in either form. But that was before it was announced that the drop was planned for the HD600.
