@BrokenStevie, are you sure B&H charged you? I know they normally do a initial run on the credit card, but that's it. The actual transaction doesn't occur until they ship out the order. Also @fleasbaby, I feel for you too. After speaking with the rep yesterday, I contacted headphone.com and placed an order there. Last when I spoke with them, there were 4 remaining spots open for the 1st batch. They mentioned that their shipment will be arriving either today or tomorrow. Otherwise most certainly Monday at the latest.
Depending on which company ships first, I'll cancel with the other company. For all those lucky people who already received their unit(s), I really look forward to your experiences with the X5!
Yes, they charged me. I checked my Paypal history and the charge is there. I'm still waiting on the refund, too. Perhaps they don't charge credit cards if you pay that way but they certainly place the charge on Paypal. I'm not sure they could process a future payment through Paypal, which wouldn't have been a problem had they actually been in line to receive an early shipment. They certainly implied that they were in line for an early shipment when they advertised preorders over a month ago. Buyer beware, I guess.
