How long will the pre-production units be available for purchase? Are they on sale throughout August or to September?

I believe they will be first come, first served and I would expect they will be gone in a matter of days if not hours.

not wanting to put a damper on things but that photo is remarkably like the old Memorex advert... 'is it live or is it Memorex' campaign, you could have a problem.

 

Er, I'm positive the association is both intentional and meant to be obvious. I believe one would call it an "homage." wink.gif

Sweet-if the PPUs are available starting August 8, hopefully the production units will be available by the end of the month/first week of September. I'll be in summer school through first week of September, and then I have 2 weeks of summer left before regular school starts. It would be sweet if I could get the M-100s in that 2 week window.

 I'm kind of confused as to which one he meant by August 8th. Because in a later post, he says he's working out the dates for PPU sales.

Agreed that the post was vague, but, based on where we are in July and the fact that printed materials are still being finalized, I'm thinking Val means PPU sales will start August 8th.

Apart from all of the questions regarding what comes with the M-100's, PPU or final, my questions would be:

 

1. What is your [Val's] motive/inspiration for making the M-series of headphones? I think this may have been mentioned before when the M-80's were released, but V-MODA hasn't exactly been known for producing high-fidelity audio gear prior to the M-series.

2. Relating to question 1, how did you you hear about Head-Fi and what made you decide to get directly involved with the community here? It is not very common to have the CEO of a company actively participate in these forums.

3. What made you decide to make the M-100's foldable (making the M-100 the first foldable headphone offered by V-MODA)?

4. Creating customized headphones for the user's liking seems to be a big part of V-MODA recently, what influenced your decision to start this? To my knowledge, no other headphone company offers this kind of product personalization.

Will PPU's be individually numbered?

Last two posts have had good questions - numbered M-100's sounds cool.

You have to remember PPUs are normally for press...  Press like to take pictures...  Pictures should represent the final product that they are talking about...  Numbers won't be part of the final product...

I'm thinking that the signature could include the number

Signed and numbered, a true collectors item.

Yes, but then we wouldn't take out of the box to keep them mint......or purchase two- one for wearing and one to keep in a hermetically sealed vault.

False, try again.  PPU is exactly what it says it is...pre-production.  There may be a disclaimer that 'actual image may vary from final product' but a miniscule number inside the headband is not going to misrepresent or have any effect on press pictures.

I remember Val saying something along the lines of... 

  • We have many preproduction units.  Half are used for testing.  Some go to the press and media.  I don't know what happens to the rest... 

 

He said this a while back.  Since he didn't know what happened to the rest, he wanted to sell them.  And everyone here thought it'd be a good idea.  That said, a signature and number on the unit can effect and misrepresent the product as that won't show up if someone who reads the post/article buys the product.
