Yah, after you sign up just shoot Justin a PM letting him know you signed up.

Thanks,

I mentioned it in a few Momentum threads. I know there are a ton of people around here that are interested in the Momentums, hopefully they'll see it and sign up. I myself am very interested in the Momentums, in fact I plan on buying them, but I was more interested in the opportunity to demo the HD700 so I signed up for it.

 

Thanks

if you want to estimate how long it will take to reach your spot on the list, assume a total of 5-6 days per person including transit time

 

Thanks Justin! I was going to ask you at the meet, but did you mean 5-6 days per person plus transit time? Because shipping can take as long as 5-6 days in certain cases. Assuming that's what you meant, I'd most likely ship the headphones on 6/28 to the next person. Hopefully you didn't mean the former because that'd only leave 1-2 days of listening per person. I'd ship sooner if required of course, but 1-2 days would be awfully short. Would appreciate it if you could clarify how long each person has to trial the headphones before shipping.

 

As a note to those reading, I intend on comparing the TH600 to the TH900 that I own and will write a short review.

I think it has been around 2-3 days then ship it to the next person. BUT if you want to keep it longer I guess you could send the TH900 to the next person instead wink.gif.

Asr - i have tried to arrange the shipping list so that the next destination is 1 day away by fedex/ups if sent before their ground cut-off times. Usps will almost always take 2 days

You should have 3 days with the headphone, but it doesnt have to be exact

^ Thanks, in that case I'll plan on sending the headphones to the next person on 6/26.

This is definitely the case Justin, I very rarely get out of my head-fi comfort zone anymore, as in I basically only go to threads I'm already subscribed too. Wish I had discovered this thread sooner, would have loved to get in on the Stax demo...

Seems like good info we should throw that in the OP. So now that signups are done, what are the next steps? How do you find out if you've been included in the demo?

i will be posting the list this week in the first post of this thread

 

if you have not sent me a confirmation PM you will not be included.  this instruction was on the sign up page.

 

What is your Head-Fi username? *


You must also send a Private Message to "justin w." on Head-Fi after submitting this form to verify this is really you.

 

^ pretty clear

Just an update: I sent out the TH600 today to the next person. Shipping came out to ~$23 for fully insured signature-required FedEx Ground, so it wasn't too expensive. I'd recommend that others use insured FedEx or UPS ground shipping too, to be safe.

 

Also want to remind everyone on the list that it may become necessary to re-package the headphones or re-do the packing material (or both) at some point eventually. I made sure that the TH600 would survive being shipped at least once (a couple of times at best), but I'm not sure the box would put up with being shipped multiple times by lots of different people with different levels of experience with shipping headphones. Please make sure that the headphones (plus the Fostex box) are always well-protected for shipping to the next person. As long as the packing material that I used is retained (or changed out), that shouldn't be too hard to do.

No worries for me, I have a huge pile of packing material from all the purchases I make online. If the shipping box is in arse condition when it arrives, I'll repackage and do up the whole thing for the next listener.

 

I also just added a link to this thread in my sig. Hopefully this will get more people aware of the generous program that Justin is providing to us.

hehe its coming to me biggrin.gif. And I guess I recommend using UPS or Fedex in terms of price as well since with the STAX demo I think I paid like $29 to ship using USPS.
