Same here. They haven't charged me yet and the status says processing so I'm just going to wait it out.

I emailed J&R yesterday. They got back to me saying "the Hifonics HE-300 will not be coming in". Seems like a pretty serious mix up. Sorry to break the news to everyone else who ordered, wishful thinking haha.
If anyone would like to sell me their unwanted he-300 from J&R send me a pm
Yeah they told me that my "Hifonics HM-601" will not be shipping, which has me mad because I'm apparently the only person here who was charged after purchasing an out of stock item.
This finally makes more sense. It looks like someone at J&R got Hifonics and HiFiMAN mixed up. Before they took down the listings, I think they were showing images of HiFiMAN HE-300 and HM-601 which only added to the confusion.
J&R is a reputable business so anyone who was offered the wrong product will certainly have the opportunity to cancel their order or get a refund.
Just if anyone are curious. The right driver on a, what I think is first revision, HE-300 started rattling and shipping to China to get the driver replaced costs more than a new pair of HE-300. So I decided to crack open the headphones and see what is hiding in its belly. To get the driver out you have to cut with a sharp knife around the driver. It is molded with some kind of glue to the baffle. Now I am not sure if it is just some dirt that had found its way onto the driver, but I am going to test a bit more if it is actually ok.
But here is a picture of the driver itself:
