Yesterday we shipped enough mics to clear all current back-ordered mics and we'll ship more next week to have enough to last us another 3-4 weeks. If you are waiting for a mic to ship, it should ship on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Our first batch of 3.0s should arrive here on the ~17th and we'll start testing and sending a few to "beta" testers. We'll hopefully do some clean-up on the site and will have more information on our possible price changes and 2.0/3.0 mics at that time. If things go well, we'll have the 3.0 non-mute ready for shipping within a month.
About the MUTE VERSIONS:
We are trying to clean up the quality on the 2.0s that are being made before we do mute contracting with the same manufacturer. Most 2.0s are fine and good but a few of the batch started making popping noises a week or two into their usage and we want to make sure that we can deliver solid mics from the manufacturer before we launch the muted version. The good news is that the latest 2.0 batch QC'd well except for a small percentage that didn't make the cut for cosmetic reasons (should be an easy fix).
Basically, we've had bit of a mute delay due to said QC issues that are being worked on while we get the mute ready for the 2.0. Shouldn't be too much longer- 1-month-ish.
About the 3.0 mute version:
The 3.0 will have noise-cancelling and a different construction from the 2.0. It will also allow swapping of cables/booms (though, to begin, we will likely only have 1 type of boom (noise-cancelling) and 1 type of cable (3 meter)). The 3.0 is looking really good and we're excited to see how it will perform.
Getting the mute cable ready for the 3.0 may be trickier than for the 2.0. The good news here is that the 3.0 will have modular cables, so if you want a mute and a 3.0, you can buy the non-mute 3.0 soon and then a mute cable for it later when it comes out.
LASTLY, A FEW THINGS:
- German customs has been delaying some microphones to customers. Sometimes they need a bill (which should be on the front of the package, according to our shipper), in which case, please contact us and we'll send you a bill.
- The 3M adhesive can be tricky! Please follow the directions (hold it on for 30 seconds, let it sit for 30+ min before really pulling on it hard)! Warming the pad before applying it will help if you've got a tricky surface.
- International tracking only works while it's in the US! The package is most likely on its way to you-
- Some countries will sometimes charge customs fees. We cannot control this. The mic is valued at 33 USD.
