I'm still quite disappointed with my current experience at Massdrop. I know other people usually have no problems joining in the drop, I just have this issue that the current country I'm in isn't on the drop down list for shipping options. I'm in Qatar and it's not on the list, but UAE is there. (We're just neighbors). Anyway, I've already decided to join in a couple of days ago and have already tried contacting Massdrop by email, instagram and the site's support page, all to no avail up to now. Based on the automatic reply from their email, they're currently backlogged and advised customers to wait for 48 to 72 hours. Who knows when the available units will run out? The time I decided to join, not even 100 units were taken, now there's only less than 50 left (still plenty, I know). With sir Damon's brief impression of the Nova, I'm now more sold to join the drop. There's just nothing I could do at the moment but to wait for Massdrop's reply. Sorry for ranting here and thanks to all your insights about the CA IEMs. I'm really keen to get one, though my budget is only limited to the Nova for now.
