Hello to everyone on this thread. I'm sorry I've not got back sooner than I have but to the question asked yes I did receive my stick headphone. I finally picked it up around the end of Nov 07. I was very happy and still am with the product but the length of time to wait and frustration caused was a disgrace.
I'm really glad I originally posted on this forum and it has obviously unearthed the same kind of problems for many other people out there when dealing with DUO AUDIO.
One thing I didn't post at the time was during my 8 month wait David Meza told me would send me an extra straight cable to show appreciation for your patience (see below).

At the time of sending my stick out (Nov 07) the only cables he had were the coiled ones (apparently no longer standard anyway as I remember from a comment on the DUO-AUDIO site). He was out of stock with the straight cables but said over the phone he would send me one once he had some in. I sent him an email few days after receiving my stick to ask a few questions, one of which was about the extra cable. I'm still none the wiser as to when I will be sent the cable out as I'm still awaiting a reply from him!
Old tricks die hard it seems or maybe I'm just hoping there is a valid reason as to why I've not heard from him.
I'm hoping David will pick up this post again hopefully from the good will of someone passing it on to him like before. Thanks in advance for anyone who is able to do that.
In the meantime I'll await a email/call from David.
Hope all those out there still without their orders receive them soon.
