    Never bought anything from them before. Reading some very different reviews about the shopping experience at their site, really wanted to try full size Shinola but now I don't feel comfortable to pull the trigger. Anyone?

    Mine was missing as well. Called Audioquest and they are sending me one.

    It's the outlet for Nordstrom's -- a mid-to-higher end department store with excellent customer service in their brick-and-mortar locations including Nordstrom Rack...believe they have a 45 day online return policy. That said, not sure how online shipping to Europe would compare/impact terms & conditions.

    How terrible can these be for under 100? Nordstrom rack is safe. Are these just garbage?

    Ordered the pro iem. Seems like a low risk proposition. Easy returns.

    I couldn't find any real specs on these. Single dynamic I assume (?).

    Just thinking that we were able to get the Audioquest for 199...

    Not only is timing bad but have seen/bought some very good cans for 60-100 on this thread with lots of positive reviews

    My brief google skills indicate the iem pro is the one to get. The over ears next and pass on the on ears. The audioquest NH is an acquired taste.

    I originally thought it was a quad BA as well, but everything I’m reading now says dual, one for the lows and one for mid-highs. I’m wondering if the quad setup refers to the total drivers.

    Hmmm. Edit you are correct sir. Still seems like a decent deal.

    I agree that this adapter kills all competition but it's sold separately so why bother with this veiled phone ^^

    I got my Nighthawk Carbons in yesterday and I'm totally happy with them. They are fun and dark but still have some detail up top. Are they my favorites? Nah, they won't be my every day headphones, but they have a spot on my roster for when I want some serious head thumping bass that isn't flabby or distorted. For $200 they were a steal. Thanks @mks100 for posting up the sale info.

    This whole Shinola headphone thing is interesting to me because until the other day, I only know them for wristwatches. A few months ago I went to the Tourneau Time Machine, Tourneau's massive watch store @57th & Madison. Saw 4-5 watches that really tempted me, but by far the least expensive, the Shinola, won out. It's large, very attractive & ergnonomically ideal...my new favorite watch.

    But headphones?

    Still, based on what I've seen of their products, and pix I've seen of their store in SoHo, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the headphones are above average. This is a company that places design, ergonomics, and function on an equal plane (you don't see that too often).

    Everything I had read previously said quad BA. I almost bought it, thinking that a quad BA developed by Campfire Audio, for ~$125 could be worth the risk. I suppose if it’s a sound signature you like, ~$125 for a dual BA Campfire Audio IEM could be a decent deal as well.
