Look - the company has been making these headphones for like 6 months. They got hit with waaaay more interest than they expected, and they are very backed up (and have acknowledged that their production schedule involves delays for the customer). They try to be pretty transparent about this, and if you had read through the LCD-2 thread here, you would see that many folks have experienced similar delays and expect something the same of your experience.
And as for this reflecting "poor business practices" by Audez'e, if your criteria is that "shipment of the product is delayed beyond what customers expected", I would challenge you to find me a company for whom that isn't on occassion true.
At the very least, with Audez'e you know that you're going to get delays and they're pretty clear about them. Cut them some slack, and enjoy your new HiFiMans.
