It was part of a focus group. Originally, the headphones were supposed to go to the focus group well before the public release of the headphones, but it got held up a bit. As it turned out, though, by the time the participants in the focus group got the headphones (which I think some did before its public release), and then had the chance to listen to and evaluate them, the DNA Pro was on the shelves. Because the original focus group schedule was supposed to be earlier than it turned out in actuality, the participants were asked not to discuss the headphones prior to its release. I didn't communicate clearly to the participants that the headphone was indeed actually out by the time they'd had a chance to spend some real time with them, only because I wasn't 100% clear on what the actual embargo date was.
Only when pre-release embargoes are involved is there any need to clear a review's posting date/time. Sorry for the confusion, Mad Lust Envy.
Ahh. Embargo dates. That makes complete sense.
