Has anyone opened up a pair and saw how the bass is manipulated acoustically?
I bought a pair during the very first drop. They are not my primary headphone, but still see enough regular use as they are the only full-size can I encountered thus far that's truly portable to travel with.
Therefore, from my single data point experience, I would not worry about them being B-Stock and fully recommend purchasing them. The biggest issues that have been reported by used are cosmetic blemishes. IIRC MassDrop replaced their headphones with another pair in all instances.
Regarding the bass, it is controlled via a rotating switch in the center of the cup. The change in base is noticeable, but not dramatic. Best way I can describe it is they are more neutral/studio biased with switch giving them more oomph...rather than bass-heavy biased with the switch providing more balance (hopefully that will make sense). I.e. Don't buy them if you a bass-head or looking for a primary EDM can (as counter-intuitive as it might seem).
Also bought during the first drop. They have held up to daily use for me as well, however I work in an office setting and they pretty much sit on my desk or hang off a lamp when not in use. For the record mine do not have the bump in the hinge either.
Regarding the bass, I think it has plenty since it can handle bass boosting EQ adjustments pretty good and quite enjoy using these fro EDM. Everytime a new Tiesto live set gets posted, I like to think that I'm hearing what he is hearing :D
Somewhere around $185 CAD, exchange rate was much better back then.
I just bought them on Amazon couldn't wait :-)
