Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

My MTW4 will be here Thursday. Pretty sure the launch date is 3/1 and maybe they weren't supposed to ship yet. Earlier today the site said ships 3/1. Who knows, could be wrong.

Yeah, we botched this when our stock arrived and apologized to Sennheiser. We should have held those preorder shipments until release day.

Eh they are headphones not iPhones. I get it but I don’t see any harm here. It’s a little silly for Sennheiser to treat these like they are “lunch day” worthy in any event. I understand the reasoning but it’s a hardly a huge deal. I’d ship em too!

Its only part of the equation to have a special launch day it is also about making sure all vendors have a level playing field

Yeah, one of the members on our team has a calendar with specific preorder dates, street dates, etc...and we're usually on top of listing the release dates on our website and shipping stuff by the book, but this one just got missed.

I’d file this away in about as “harmless”’of an error as there ever was. Outside of headfi, I think the risk of someone complaining the other guy got his mtw4 10 days early as zero point zero percent. At risk of aggravating pixelsquish, no one cares about the mtw4 in the grand scheme of consumer products.

@Andrew DiMarcangelo Your honesty and transparency only solidifies me and I'm sure others as customers:metal:.

Man, sorry for blowing up your spot!

Well I really like them so hopefully Senn feels positive about a little bit of earlier good word going out :)

Announcements and release dates should be kept to no more than 2 weeks in between. These long periods between announcements and releases are just a waste
