I hope you get yours soon Kingpage, I had your challenge with one new product last year. I ordered mine online and by the time mine arrived the local store had been selling them for 5 days LOL.

This is one of the best posts in this thread. Thanks for sharing your opinions!

Anyone interested with the HM5 can head over to MP4Nation to order now they have it on pre-order for $119.50 and they have some limited coupons for 10 dollars off.

 

Anyway, those who are still waiting for your headphone, some of us received ours a week or two after it was shipped, so I hope you guys understand that it's actually the custom in your country that's slowing things down lol can't blame MP4Nation for the slow shipping

Nope.  Came out of lurk mode (I'm a newbie -- not much to contribute but thanks for all the informed discussion!) to say that I'm still waiting as well.  I ordered on Cyber Monday from the mp4nation website for delivery in the US.  Still 'nuthin.  I wish their website had made it clear that if I had ordered from their Amazon storefront instead, I would have had them over two weeks ago.  Oh well.  So long there's nothing truly wrong -- lost? don't say the word! -- I can wait.

i ordered from mp4nation, not amazon. all the pre-orders going to the US were shipped from amazon. 

do you at least have tracking information?


but. you know the little messaging/help thing that pops up in the corner on their website? ask about your shipment there.

or open a support ticket.

they might have a better idea of what's going on.

Yep, I have a tracking number, and it was definitely shipped from Hong Kong.  I asked about the shipping on the mp4nation forum and was told by someone (not raz) that Amazon orders went from Amazon, mp4nation orders from mp4nation. What you're saying doesn't jive with that though, so who knows?

 

Last tracking info was from 12/22 when singpost.com said "Despatched to overseas (Country code: US)".  USPS.com says "Origin Post is Preparing Shipment" on the same day and nothing further.

 

:(

I was considering buying these as a gift for my friend who turntables with me quite a bit (turntable.fm that is).  He mostly listens to rock and like classic blues/soul kind of stuff, as well as all the random junk we play when we have sessions on there.  This a pretty good all arounder for the price.  How much "fun" is it compared to the m50.  It sounds like these are less punchy than the athm50, which I think would suit him.

Thank you! Thanks to you, d2k, and everyone else here as well. These are most definitely a keeper for me.

I`m still waiting too. But my problem is different, my uncle is with them in USA, but I have to wait until he comes, probably in 3 weeks.

Nope! I ordered December 10th from mp4nation, shipped December 16th...no update on USPS or Ezyparcels or Singpost since December 22nd. ;)

 

My friend who I told about these got his weeks ago, haha.

Not mp4nation's fault at all.

 

But it's not just customs. The package probably missed the early planes. Otherwise, how come someone from a more remote part of Australia got his on Tuesday? That would have implied that his parcel arrived in Sydney roughly a week before mine.

 

 

I'm glad (not really) to know that two people are waiting too. Well, let's hang in there!

How are these the "NEW" neutral champ if they are just a clone of the Fischer FAA-03?

post #404 of 1671
Original poster was not originally comparing or thinking of the FA-003 I believe. Plus we are all conjecturing that both headphones are the same.
post #405 of 1671

It's just a play on words from project86's FA-003 review, no?
