4.0s are in stock!

Posted by James Console on

(Update 5/20/14-)

4.0s are in stock. We're working through the back-orders right now and should have them shipped out in the next day or so. Emails with tracking will be sent as orders are processed. 

NOTE: You may have a ~week delay if you are ordering extra base clasps with your mic for we just ran out of their stock :/ 

And older stuff:
I've whipped up a quick video for a short test and some info on what's going on with the mic:

Notes from video: 
1) Mic should be here at the end of April and shipping around the first week of May. Pre-orders should be able to start when we get the mics shipping toward us- likely in about 1 week.
2) I forgot to mention pricing(!): we're still waiting on some final numbers but it'll be around the 45-55 dollar range. We focused on better components rather than lower cost this time around--which has made it more expensive--but I think we'll be able to tweak things to get its cost lowered in future revisions. 
3) We're waiting on final tests on the mic body (cyclic bending, hot/cold fluctuation, drop tests, etc.) and its capsule so we won't have the verified specs just yet.

Here are some pics from the recent trip to the factory to sign off on the first test run:

This black 3M adhesive was awesome looking but didn't quite pass the functional tests :/

This black 3M adhesive looked really slick but didn't quick hack it during our functional tests :/

Setting up a testing device and protocol for the mics coming off the line.

Word to the wise!
I'm psyched to get this thing rolling. We've got a lot of work ahead of us (clean up site, create new media for the mic, get international distribution set up, Amazon ...) but soon we'll be able to finally be past these 2 years of waiting for the ModMic to arrive in its most evolved form. Fingers crossed for a smooth launch. Such a thing is rare here...

  • Sorry for being AFK on the comments, guys! Thanks for the feedback and support. New batch is in LA right now and we must clear it through customs, which may take a day or so. Hoping to have these mics shipping in about a week.

    Things we’re working on:
    Some of the top clasps didn’t get their plastic temperature/flow right and the magnet will fall out. So far we have about 2% of mics having this problem.
    Some of the mic’s tips are put on backwards! This is harder to notice but about 1% have reported this. This incoming batch was reworked to fix this annoyance so there shouldn’t be any issues with this.
    The first batch had a pretty strong plastic smell. I think this was since we flew them directly from the factory and they didn’t sit on a boat for a few weeks to chill out/think about what they’d done.
    Some users have reported quiet mics but those that have come back have been fine in our tests. I think it’s likely a software issue. Sometimes Windows 8 makes for problems.
    We’re still working on a solution for the XBone. Trying Modmic→ CTIA/headset adapter → controller adapter → controller is troubling. If you guys have a good solution we’d love to hear it. Or else we’re gonna have to build our own adapter or something like that…

    Do email our customer support if something’s not right with your mic.

  • Just got my mic today! I am so pumped to check it out when I get home from work. Really high quality packaging and design. I really like it. Thanks for your hard work!

  • Just got mine today (ordered the 8th), i live in Belgium so it was pretty fast. Glued it to the plastic part of my sennheiser HD598 just behind the cable hole. Nothig to complain about, the quality is great and it doesn’t pick much of ambient noise. Very satisfied, will recommend ;)

  • Any updates on distribution in Europe? That really is the limiting factor for me, as import from outside of Europe is really expensive here in Denmark
