Just about there! We've been in touch with the vendor regarding the group's order and they've let us know that they are still working to gather and pack the group's order for shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey. We will continue to check in with them throughout the fulfillment process and update the group again as soon as everything is en route to us!

Expect another update from us on 11/23 or sooner if something comes up.

UPDATE? This is nuts, if you ask why they don't give an answer just it's getting ready look for the next update maybe.

We got an update! The shipment has been received!

It will only take the monkey that MassDrop has assigned to this order ANOTHER week to
1) Open a box, and
2) Put 100 items into pre-printed mailers.

Given a 7 hour workday, that's 2 items into a mailer per hour. Such an efficient monkey!

We can expect another update on December 5th, Letting us know the trials and tribulations the monkey went through and why they had to bring another monkey in to really get the job done.... but honest the next next next update on Dec.17th will be a good one.
Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse.

Expect another update from us on 11/9 or sooner if something comes up.

Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the XDuoo XQ-10 Portable Amp and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.

As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them. The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 11/17.

We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 11/2.

After repeated use, I don't detect any static.
I heard that this amp is having lots of static problems. Could it be fixed with a new cable or is it not worth entering the drop?

From a cursory investigation, it seems that replacing the aux-cable fixes the static problem.
-- According to multiple posts from MassDroppers here, along with a fairly recent thread on HeadFI that doesn't draw any complaints about the XQ-10 at all ::
http://www.head-fi.org/t/808705/xduuo-xq-10-good-or-not
Although I haven't investigated enough to determine if the issue with "Static while plugged in (usb)" is common - I'm leaning towards unlikely.

If the XQ-10 isn't up to snuff, I guess I will need to look at one of the FiiO's: E17K, E12A, or maybe even the budget-friendly E5. And unfortunately, there are no FiiO DAC/Amp drops.

Every drop, "Thanks for joining", "Awaiting Confirmation", "Orders have shipped".

Couldn't these copy-paste-with-date-changed announcements be "pinned, and spoiler'd", or possibly not even be in the thread at all -- move to the top outside of the thread as clickable Announcement Buttons.
To those having static/distortion issues, don't use the stock interconnect cable as that's what's most likely causing these problems. I have one of these amps, tried the stock cable and got really crap sound. So I switched to my Fiio L16 and boy did that make a huge difference. Sound is very clean and on my Ruizu X08 it adds a fuller sound to my music, with a slight accentuation in bass. Works really nice with my IEMs (TX1, ED9's, ATE) and I use it as my portable rig at work. Try a better quality interconnect and see what you think!
this thing look like hippo cri cri+
I should have saved the almost $30 and put it towards something better. I get horrible static with the volume on the device at more than around 15% if it's receiving power of any kind. On battery power it does seem to do its job just fine, as far as a first-time user of an amp can tell. I probably won't be using it, however, because I don't want to be constantly unplugging and plugging it in. As well, what if I run out of battery when I'm actually using it? I'm don't want to be listening to terrible static like that. To anyone thinking about this joining this drop save the money and get something better.
Massdrop needs to remove this vendor because of the poor quality or at least warn people what they're actually going to get garbage.
On Aliexpress, a number of sellers have this amp for $23 and free shipping from China. Are they not the same? or there's something im missing??
