Hi, just wondering if you have sent an email to info@unwantedimports.com?
I realised they have the old ymail, and then this email as well.
Just wondering because I am worried as well, as I just placed an order last week.

I am also thinking if it is possible that the latest batch from Unwanted Imports are made in Dong Guan. Since XTRA says their upcoming stocks are from Dong Guan. Hopefully Unwanted Import still get those made in USA ones.

Re

Xtra price is $22xx vs UI $17xx the difference is about $500, basically paying more is for the peace of mind for warranty ...
The popular black chair is cheaper at $22xx. The Mineral chair is $25xx lah

My Aeron finally came today. Very satisfied!
Those who were also wondering like me, the chair received is Made in USA and not DG. Also from batch Jan 2020.

Initially I thought it will come without the box, but it did came with the box as well.

No rough edges on the chair as well.

The only thing is there is a light scratch mark on the top side of the chair (near to where we would mount the headrest) and have not figure out how to get that off yet.

Other than that, everything else is perfect!
Regretted not having ordered the Atlas Headrest together.

Indeed, they are selling more than they can ship to SG, both UI and Xtra. Lead time for ordering in July will take delivery in mid Sep as I was told. There was MIC available in Aug but also booked up pretty fast.

Graphite and carbon is 2199 and 2222 when I checked w Xtra, was told it's promo price already. With the current demand, there isn't much incentive for them to bring it down lower. UI prices are easily $500 cheaper.

Mineral is nice to look at but not sure in long run if its easy to maintain but this color is pricier whoever you buy from, including shopee.

I ordered mine with the Atlas headrest and it's really satisfying to lean back during conference calls. The chair arrived with the headrest assembled so saved me all the trouble haha.

Nice.. Yeah I thought so, and can imagine myself leaning on the headrest as well.

I saw some reviews from the buyers from shopee, someone mentioned that the material is not exactly the same than the chair? Is it true? Because I thought it will be made from the exact same material and same mesh to match.

The Atlas headset mesh seems to be identical to the chair's original mesh in both colour and texture. I read in the desktop chair thread before about the shoppe one being OEM so I'm not too sure. Either that or maybe it's the engineered now headset that doesn't fully match the chair mesh maybe. I read on reddit that the EN headset also tends to pull your hair so I went with the Atlas instead.
