    Don't blind buy. Just be patient and wait. You can always get a good deal on a used pair later on and will get a chance to listen to them at a future time.

    The several month wait should stop you from buying RIGHT NOW. Take this time to explore your personal preferences, and when they come out, audition again with familiar amps and test tracks.

    I was reading Zach's AMA on reddit. The way he defined the Atticus was literally my dream headphone.

    Understand that he's going to the best spin he can on his products. Especially something that he's evidently worked as hard at developing as the new dynamics. Not an indictment of Zach's honesty, just something to be aware of with respect to any manufacturer and/or seller.

    Thanks for saving me from the snakeoil. I will just wait for a demo.

    Also bear in mind that there's no accounting for your own listening experience. Been several times that I picked up something with what I thought was a clear idea of how it'd sound, only to be let down. Had nobody to blame but myself, there.

    I would /definitely/ wait and hear them yourself before spending a bunch of money on some dude...

    Looking at the pre-order sheet for batch 1, there's almost 20 Atticus preorders many of which that person also ordered an Eikon. That's just the first batch, so could be more. I'm sure you'll find used ones pop up. I'd keep your eye on r/AVexchange as well, there's lots of hype on Reddit

    OTOH at the preorder price you're probably not gonna lose anything if you just decide you don't like it, and want to sell it and move on

    Zach runs a sale every November. Let the intel come in, maybe a tour stop, then pick your poison next year.

    Or blind buy, whatever...
