Thunderpants (T50RP mod) Group Buy - Page 58

post #856 of 879

Smeggy is alive! I just hope that he got through his ordeal, whatever it was, unscathed. The wait was long but that's all in the past now. Here's to a new beginning!

Just wondering if anyone else from the group buy received their Thunderpants?  I'm curious if the group buy is fulfilled...

post #860 of 879

My apologies for not updating this thread earlier however I received my very own Thunderpants around 10 days ago and am very happy with the product.  The configuration chosen was Cocobolo in a high gloss finish with brown Stax ear pads and a braided cable.  The visual presentation oozes quality and Gary should be rightly proud of his achievement in  producing such a unique headphone.  The only other quality dynamic headphone that I own is the Audio Technica ATH-W3000ANV and the Thundepants loses nothing when sitting next to them.

 

With the Stax pads they are comfortable although the weight is 620 grams (almost 22 ounces) including the cable.  I don't seem to have problems with this although it may be a factor for those of you who have expressed problems with "heavy" headphones such as the LCD-2.  

 

The sound signatures between the W3000ANV and Thunderpants are quite different however I just don't have the experience to comment intelligently on what those differences exactly are.  To me they sound just fine and I'm enjoying swapping between the two to discover which pieces of music suit which headphone.  I do prefer listening to acoustic and small ensemble pieces on the Thunderpants although the volume control on my ageing headphone amp is running at 2 o'clock whereas the W3000ANV is set at 11 o'clock on the dial.  What they have confirmed is that I need to update both amp and DAC to hear what they can really do.

Bump because I'm still curious...

Has anyone heard from Gary?  

 

I was not part of the group buy, but paid for the unfinished Thunderpants kit ($250 plus velour pads $53, total $253) June 9, 2012, last time I heard from Gary was June 21, 2012.  Every few months I try sending an email, with no response.  

 

Please, can someone give me an update?  I believe the group buy has been fulfilled, was hoping that once the group buy was fulfilled I would hear from Gary.  Thanks!

Sorry, I'm in the same pickle as you.  I haven't received an email reply since October.  I'm still hopeful.  I don't know how foolish that makes me....

ButtUglyJeff sorry you are going through the same.  

 

Seems like there are still a couple (?) outstanding headphones as part of the group buy, hope, hope, hope, that Gary gets those sent off and maybe I will get my Thunderpants Kit.  

 

Thanks!

I feel for you guys. I would say at this point to not count on it. I don't even know why Smeggy even continues to have his website up and running if he's not actually running a business. The whole thing is a sham and a shame.

Almost 2 years and nothing for me :(

post #868 of 879

Has anyone heard from Gary ? Has anyone else received a their purchase as part of the group buy ?

 

My purchase was at the same time as the group buy and hoping that once he completes the group purchase I might received my order, thanks!

Possibly lucky. Some orders (how many?) were never fulfilled.

Alpha Dogs is probably the closest product on the market now.
