    Posting this as a public service message. This sounds like an amazing opportunity. I'd apply if I hadn't decided to become a retard in my old age doing simpler things such as bird watching. Who wants to follow in @CEE TEE's footsteps, bringing SBAF and the headphone hobbyist community at large good unique stuff at good prices?

    Funny enough I PM'd Cee Tee a few months ago about working at Drop and that conversation quickly derailed towards ETA headphones... On that note, I wish this opportunity could've popped up in Summer 2021 when I'll have a better idea of ETA's long term future. Seems like a dream job for me, only second to the idea of working for myself. That said I would love to see any Friend (and I can think of many who are qualified!) usher in Drop's future.

    I'd probably jump on it if I could. Though I bet they'd prevent me from creating truly great products because it's time consuming and there are a lot of restrictions for such cheap mass produced products. I guess I'm probably happier making my own stuff with no compromise.

    But it would be great if someone from SBAF got the job.

    Well phooey, unemployed me thinks this sounds like fun, but I don't have experience developing consumer electronics.

    Considering what they did to @CEE TEE, I would second guess any decision to work for Drop...unless you are using this as a jumping stone to something else.

    Given the lead time needed for product development and production the effect of this has started to show. There's been a few consecutive drops that have shown some gaps in technical understanding of the headphone market.

    Needless to say, it seems like current momentum is downhill at the audio group and whoever takes this will need to stop the ball and push it up hill. Good luck!

    As much as I love you....you have to read some of the comments carefully from the wise men. It should be easy to tell what happen here.

    Amen.

    Thanks for the PSA.

    Really do want to see Drop succeed... edit: comments and a single speculation redacted.

    Hmmm... Me too. October 2019? Maybe we both had late Septembers and didn't wake up until November.
