Cool, thanks!  Definitely digging the utilitarian aspect.  If I keep these long-term I may very well do this.

My pleasure.

I thought the leather belt as reinforcement to the stock T50RP headband was standard with the TP1. Bluemonkeyflyer, did you get something different?

The rubber cover over the metal headband was removed. A section of a leather belt was mounted beneath the metal and super glued in place as shown in the pix, above. Smeggy listened to feedback and "cleaned up" the ends. He made 45 degree bevels on both sides of both ends. It looks like he also smoothed the edges where the belt was cut and put some type of sealant on it to make it look more professional.

Still haven't got my pair for almost a year now, and Gary is not replying to my emails. I heard someone has Gary's phone number - if you do, could you please send his number to me privately? Thanks.

Sorry to hear that googleli. These are no Blue Hawaii's. Sachu appears to know Smeggy personally, maybe he can get in touch.

Still waiting also. Full payment sent last October as part of the group buy. Gary has promised via email that mine will be sent but it has been a long wait and I am still nervous about whether or not the order will be completed.

Wow.  How many are still out there who haven't gotten their's yet?  

 

At least Smeggy appears to be actively working on orders so hopefully, eventually he will make good.  But this is madness.

An appearance of not working on orders is more like it. The group buy got the red headed stepchild treatment. New orders fulfilled in 3 weeks but it takes us 3 months to get back repaired units and plenty of unfulfilled orders after 9 months. The Blue Hawaii SE has seen epic wait times but at least Justin has a first come first served policy.

Smeggy needs to partner up with someone who can handle the business side of things. That way he can just focus on making beautiful headphones.

Let me restate that: "_still_ working on orders" biggrin.gif  Perhaps not working on them like he should, in the right order, and so on.

 

It's kind of crazy that he basically rebuilt my headphones from scratch while he still has unfulfilled GB orders in the queue.

Just received my Custom Thunderpants TP1 (Not via Group Buy, I contacted Smeggy myself), sound pretty good so far, but not as good as my LCD2's (Which i expected), but hopefully they improve with burn in.

Finish sure is nice though.

 

Audeze Leather Headband

Audeze Leather Pads

Pink Flame Wood

Dual bass Ports (one on top, one on bottom)

Balanced 6ft Cable with SE Adapter.

 

Enjoy!

I received my TP1 at the beginning of February, but sent them back several days later due to some quality control issues.  Since Gary was unable to strip and refinish the cups, he offered to create new cups from scratch, although he didn't have my original wood choice available.  That being said, it seems Gary has run into a number of setbacks along the way, and I am still waiting for my repaired / replacement phones.  I understand what a stressful and difficult position Gary must be in struggling to support a new business venture, however, the general lack of communication and missed completion dates is quite frustrating at times.  Good luck to everyone else in similar positions--I'm sure that Gary will *eventually* deliver a stunning product.  

 

Happy 4th!
