I mean, this thing is like a gift from the gods for old-school gamers, sadly it is out of stock here on amazon for some days now, and the few other sellers have overpriced stock. I want my Supaboy now, can't wait :)
I placed my order on 12/8, and have been checking the website 3 times daily (can you tell I want it right now?). I assume Amazon will get another shipment eventually as they are still taking out of stock orders. Waiting, waiting waiting..
Supposedly the new ones should have no problems with sound, as the only ones with sound issues were prototypes and a few of those got slipped into the first shipment. Hyperkin has acknowledged the problem and so it's likely you should not have any sound problems in the new shipment.
I would love to see a confirmed comment on here that the sound is fixed on new shipments. When amazon previously halted and cancelled orders for the supaboy I ended up buying from another retailer in late december. Mine has a slight distortion with the sound at mid to high levels for both headphones and the built in speakers. It really isnt that bad, but it is a minor annoyance. Otherwise im quite happy with my supaboy
