Nothing wrong with being bummed that the product is late. I too am bummed. At my job, if I deliver something late, it's my responsibility and whether or not the reasons are beyond my control, it's still late and I am still held accountable. This is not an Audeze only thing but wouldn't it be amazing if someone actually delivered a product EARLY for once. Instead, manufacturers over promise and we all just accept delays as part of the process. Perhaps Audeze should have accounted for unexpected delays up front. Of course, that might cost sales since less people would have been willing to buy if the initial ship date was August. Again, not damning Audeze specifically here as this is common practice in the tech world nowadays (Apple, can you hear me?). I have been burned by crowdfunding several times and only jumped into this because I trusted Audeze to deliver. That said, I expected to have my headphones by now and it's perfectly fine for people to be disappointed/bummed and frustrated that they are late. A little more communication would help as well.
