    You all know how much I love orthos. I missed the window to buy a pair of these but would really like to own a pair.

    I just thought I would put this out there in case anyone bought one and wants to let them go to a very loving home. I’ll pay what they cost new including taxes and shipping.

    thanks.

    There keeps popping up a couple here and there. I'm sure you're on-top of them all. I hope you can find one sooner than later or Audeze comes out with something to fill in the gap. I think their comment of making headphones with drivers that have never been used before might also be another option to save you the 2500. They have fallen into some new money to experiment a little bit and let the belt out a bit. :)

    Yeah there’s been three for sale that I know of but I’m not wiling to pay more than retail price plus taxes and shipping. About 2,600 is my offer.

    I can’t believe people are flipping these and meanwhile people really passionate about this kind of headphone can’t get one.

    Be interested in your thoughts, if you manage to get one.

    Wow, they're now sold out after I bought one. Maybe they just had one extra that I manage to get thanks to @deafenears

    Great! Now I can't wait to read what you'll write about them! Especially from someone who's had experience with a bunch of orthos (and other headphones for that matter).

    I have a pair on the way to me too, a 230V version, which was also sold out after I placed the order. Maybe they're returned units? Or just spares lying around? Who knows, don't care.

    I feel good I couldn't check in this thread hours ago. Otherwise I had to compete against RD lol.

    “Hi Whitney,
    Thank you for your order. Unfortunately we are sold out of this headphone and amp. It was mistakenly listed back on our site. I have cancelled and refunded your order. Let me know if you have any questions and apologies for any confusion.”
    :(

    Fortunately I think I will be able to purchase a used set form a very kind enthusiast who knows me from way back in the day on head-fi. A gesture that restores faith in humanity. :)

    I’m still interested though in case that falls through. Thank you!

    Wow that sucks!
    Did Audeze send you an automated response first, saying the order was confirmed?
    I'm asking because it went back in stock this afternoon and I grabbed it. Now I'm anticipating getting the same message as you :(

    yeah I got an automated order confirmation. I thought I got them. You better receive the same order cancellation email! ;). I don’t know why they keep opening it up for sale accidentally.

    I also don’t know why they only made 67 of these. They should have just made them a regular model with ongoing production.

    Oh man, sorry to hear. Not sure how they made that stuff up.

    Maybe you can use your connections at Audeze and find out for us all :)

    Yep, got it this morning…
    I bet they will make another set with cheaper cups (like LCD-2C/X) and headband for ~$2000/2200 with Jot A.
    Seems dubious that Schiit would only produce 67 of them.

    I think it’s just the Jottenheim R so I don’t think this is a factor.

    The wood is the issue! Pretty sure it is that simple. Mine are available to listen if you pass through my hood, but over my dead body will I be letting them go - I can't help restore the huge manatee's. ;)
