Apparently they will do another drop if the requests hit 100k, I am also very much interested in getting myself the hd6xx when it drops again.

Overheard at Sennheiser HQ one night ...

"So what shall we do with that batch of underlength cables that arrived? I know! Let's ride they hype wave and push them to our Massdroppers!"

Nice gesture though.

TBH, I sense more of a shipping delay coming up. Sweeteners are needed to pacify impatient audiophiles.

Apparently the issue is some cussies got 4ft cables instead of the (still too short) 6ft ones. Guess they had many complaints about the short leads.  Missing an opportunity to make good and net send at least 2m.

Yeah, appears to be the case, looks like they've already shipped the order.
