Heck yeah!  Sittin' on a fence for a month can make a fella uncomfortable, if you know what I mean...  Seriously, welcome.  Resistance if futile....
Wait - what?  Nick's running for president?
That's at least 3 today isn't it?  Funny....  I jumped on board early this month, thinking they'd all be gone.  I think I was tail end of the initial feeding frenzy, and things are calming down to a more normal pace now.
Awesome to hear.  You are sucking me in further.  Eventually, I won't be able to swim out of the maelstrom....  Actually, I already can't.  Finite resources are the only reason I'm not on preorder.  The Ether is a really wonderful headphone.  I'll have one eventually.....

I'm probably going to just keep mine for a while.  I really like them.  After a while, they will either settle in at a fairly constant value, or go the route of the Denon D2/5/7000's that shot up in value when they were no longer available except on the used market.  I had been considering selling them to fund the Ether, and keeping an inferior but nice pair of closed headphones.  It looks like the Ether will be around for quite a while, so I'm in no hurry.  The Ether is...
