Most websites I see state "pre-order". Perhaps you should order one and see if a ship date is provided:sunglasses::wink:

Very interesting. Love the Rai Penta's and these might be a pair to have when I don't want to bring 1K+ IEM's with me. Definitely very interested.

We didn't have this in our product specification sheet, but we measured them briefly at your request. The Rai Solo is 10 grams and Rai Penta is 6 gram. So the Rai Solo is on the heavy side but not out of comfortable range..
