Why??? Not sure why Drop does this. Who would wait two months to save 7 dollars? Considering these but I would definitely not wait till January when I could have them next week if I wanted . What am I missing here ?
You would have to add Express shipping service (+/- $20 USD), to get them in 1 - 2 weeks.
Officially they aren't even out yet linsoul just had some pre-orders also
Yeah, “next week” is an exaggeration but linsoul, even during Covid, ships to me in about ten days with standard shipping and express costs $15 for where I live.(3-7 days) The point is still why for seven dollars savings ? My guess is on December 28th they will still ship from China and be a couple more weeks. Whatever, I honestly don’t care. I just don’t understand it
Drop is a shadow of its former self these days.
Well, for someone like me who works more than full time 6 days a week, has a 3 year old toddler to raise, has hardly any time to listen to music, and has a fairly sizeable backlog of IEMs and headphones to get familiar with, this timing actually works out.
I personally don't need to get any new IEM I purchase very quickly, so don't mind the wait and save the $7. I likely wouldn't even find time to unpack them until well after they've arrived, anyway.
I'm probably very much in the minority, but people like me do exist. So there is a subset of purchasers for whom this timing works.
Of course, it does really suck to have to wait to get something, for sure. I feel that way about other things that I find more pressing.
Luckily, Drop isn't the only place to get these and you have choices of vendors depending on your priorities.
I emailed them to check if they were on preorder or if they are now shipping. They confirmed that they have and are shipping the Tape Pro.
as of the 11.11 sale they were listed as preorder
Ordered a pair (in black) from Linsoul 2 weeks ago. Just shipped today, supposed to be here Friday the 27th. Then we'll see if they are any good. Didn't notice the 16 ohm impedance.
Just arrived. Plugged them into a Zishan DSDs. Getting a LOT of high frequency hiss, more so
in the left channel. Ears still ring couple hours later after 30 minutes of music. Frown!
