Me too...apparently they printed the shipping forms and paid for it but never dropped them off (or they were never picked up).  :(

 

Was supposed to get them today, but who knows when now.

Folks, calm down, lol. Razzer said they are shipping in a few days, he just got the stock in. Patience, patience wink.gif

These look promising. I've been eyeing the Xears (waiting on the xt3s to show up), but these might be a great alternative. My one big hesitation to these headphones: the earpiece tube has no ridges or flanges to hold the silicon buds in place. I have a pair of Mee M6's that are just completely unusable to me because when I try to pull the buds out of my ear the silicon piece stays in everytime, or just while sitting down listening to music the driver will just separate from the bud. I guess I'll wait for some more reviews before breaking out the wallet.

Mine's also at processing. Maybe I'm in a different time zone, but it's 17/10/2012 here, and the website said they would ship by 16/10/2012. Not that I'm complainting in any way, I'm already getting an amazing deal, and I'm not one to whine about small things like a shipping delay of a few days.

Curious that the sensitivity is 95dB/mW, which is more on-level with a portable full-sized than IEMs. I guess 4 dynamic drivers are hard to drive.

So far I've been able to get the R1's in and out of my ears easily enough without losing the tips yet...and I really push them in well. The tips hold on well.

I'm finding that the R1's are easier to drive well with an amp of some sort. I'm using my Nationite N2(which has a built amp for the headphone output)and am noticing that I don't have to turn the volume up nearly as much as when paired to my phone. Just a heads up there.

My order status said shipped yesterday but it still hasn't been accepted by Fedex.. Here's my Fedex status since yesterday's notification of shipment: "Shipment information sent to FedEx".. Probably just some unexpected delay on mp4nations end getting orders out the door. The wait continues.. smile.gif

It took them only 3 hours to complete my order.That was fast

The R1 looks promising like D2K said. I ordered two pairs to be shipped here in the Philippines. I'm hoping to get them this weekend since I order the R1 Tuesday (Oct 16)

post #147 of 792

I can't persuade my friend to purchase the r1 through mp4nation for me as he said he isn't sure if its a safe seller or notfrown.gif

post #148 of 792

this is my 3rd purchase (m2+N2 and fiio17 are the previous ones)..everything went smooth...if you have any issues they will respond promptly...

the only thing is the waiting time with free shipping...you are literally older by the time of the arival :)

Well we're now on day 3 in the Fedex queue...wonder if they will actually ship them.  An order update or something would be nice.  I mean I got the shipping notification on Tuesday...yet...they haven't shipped.  Bizarre.  Never seen this before.  Hate to be a whiner and ruin this thread, but I know Raz reads it, so hoping he can at least shed some light on why this is happening.

I've ordered dozens of times from them over a three year period with zero problems, so have many others on here. Just my two cents on that.
