The endorsement number just referrs to total number of "likes" anyone's postings have garnered. There are a handful of members, in each community, that seem to be pretty knowledgable about the products. They're usually easy to spot on the specific product's discussion board. If you want general product specific advice, they're probably the ones to go to. If you want info about how MD might handle a Drop of the item, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know a little bit about the SE215 model as I own a pair of the model immediately before these came out. Mine are well made, deliver excellent quality audio with effective noise isolation. The SE 215s are frequently dropped, very popular and competitively priced. The current model (SE215) seems to enjoy a similarly esteemed reputation in terms of audio quality.
If you want a "special" email notice when these come around again, ZALHERA is right. Requesting a previously successful Drop is usually a simpler and more fruitful endeavor than starting a new poll. MD already has a source for the IEMS, so they don't need to reinvent the wheel on this one. MD also knows it will be, mostly likely, a successful Drop.
Although the recurrence of past Drops doesn't necessarily predict the frequency or likelihood of future drops, it could give you an estimate. The best way to figure this out is to browse the back pages of the Drop's discussion.
UPDATE/EDIT: This post was significantly edited to avoid redundancy and repeating myself. ;-)
Hope that helps.
Fine print: The usual.
Ok thanks for letting me know!
I'm a little knew to Massdrop, so I'm kind of unfamiliar, but it's always nice to have a supportive community to let me know how things work around here.
I appreciate your kindness (no, really I do), 'cause I know a lot of other communities aren't really understanding and get aggressive real fast.
Once again, Thanks a ton!
Thanks for reading it as intended: as something to help you find what you're looking for most effectively. You might be heartened to know that they really are quite popular, so making the poll and getting a good response is not surprising at all.
Older Drops are sometimes buried in the "previous successful drops" section, so finding what you're looking for can be a bit of a challenge.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy your time on Massdrop, if you have an idea for a poll that seems reasonable but hasn't yet been explored, definitely make it into a poll. They love 'em ... or so I've been told. :-)
