CRRAP, me too..
I sent them a message inquiring about the shield engraving and havent received a reply yet..
For any of you familiar, would you know if you can have a black shield engraved with the black etching? I want my etching to be nearly invisible
I honestly just think this means that they reviewed the order and will proceed to do whatever they need to do to get it ready...they can't engrave the shields that fast.
The maddening, uh, gray area pour moi was not knowing how many shields (and therefore possible colors) would be included: whether I should order custom black shields to match the matte black of the rest of my new cranial ensemble or assume I'd be getting a black matte pair gratis and was free to "express myself(TM)" with orange (or door-hinge purple, for that matter).
I thought about white pads for contrast, then realized how soon they'd darken.
Here, by the bye (see goodbye below), is a quote from a great American artist which should allay anyone's concerns about having "settled" for that unfashionable, unmatchable color black:
“When I fell in love with black, it contained all color. It wasn’t a negation of color, it was an acceptance. Because black encompasses all colors. Black is the most aristocratic color of all, the only aristocratic color. For me this is the ultimate. You can be quiet and it contains the whole thing. There is no color that will give you the feeling of totality. Of peace. Of greatness. Of quietness. Of excitement. I have seen things that were transformed into black that took on greatness. I don't want to use a lesser word. Now, if it does that for things I've handled, that means the essence of it is what you call alchemy."
(Did someone say goodbye?)
Agreed - we already established this. For those who don't get it, let me be a bit more blunt. (Remember, blunt =|= rude)
ALL MODELS CALLED "V-MODA VTF-100" ARE PRE-RELEASE/PRE-PRODUCTION UNITS. THESE UNITS COME WITH:
IT DOES NOT MATTER WHEN YOU PUT YOUR ORDER IN. ALL OF THEM ARE PRE-RELEASE UNITS, AND WILL BE SENT OUT BEFORE THE RELEASE OF THE M-100's.
Hopefully this helps... Again, I am not being rude, and nor am I angry. I just want to make this clear to those who are confused and causing more confusion.
