The sound quality and stage of these iems are great. The build quality of the cable is really bad.

Is this true? From the description: "The three-button remote and mic built into the cable allow you to control calls and media playback with a single touch."
The DX model does NOT have a mic/remote. The iDX model DOES have a mic/remote. Which is it?

I bought these a couple of months ago and while they sound terrific, the build is absolutely atrocious and will not last you a long time. My pair's left driver stopped working after just two weeks of relatively moderate use.

I have these, the Hifiman Re-400 and the Shure SE215.
This review seems to be quite precise:

("blow you away" or not...)
Note: The extension cable is bound to fail, but having a replaceable extension may be better than having to throw away the earbuds.

Ummm, so MSRP of $55 and best drop price of $74.99? I think something is wrong here... Did Massdrop make a typo?

These things sound very nice if you feed them a good source and amp them properly. I noticed they take more amping power to get a decent volume than any other IEM I've used - probably won't sound their best unamped straight out of a phone or ipod. I use them with my DX90 music player (which has a built in amplifier) and they sound fantastic. At the final price point of this drop, for ~$75 I believe these are a steal in terms of potential sound quality.
Edit: One of the drivers of my dx 160's has died after a few months of light use. Apparently the build quality of this model is very unreliable.

Been enjoying my DTX 102's from a drop a while ago, until my cat chewed through the cord yesterday. Hoping these are a good replacement, looking for a bass-heavy iem for the gym.

I have a pair of these. Great sound, but I find the cable design and microphonics to be horrendous. I wear them around my ears to reduce it, but the cable design makes it pretty annoying to do so.

I bought these about 9 months ago and have to say I'm quite pleased with them overall. I'm not able to describe the ins and outs of the bass/mids/treble etc but suffice to say I haven't found any issue with that side of things. I can wear mine for hours on end comfortably The few complains I have are: * They don't get very loud on my Nexus 5 using Spotify. Using Soundcloud/Play Music they're fine though. * If you're generating static electricity (e.g. wearing a sweater) then I've found that the earbuds can discharge that static into your ear via the metal rings on the outside of the housing. It's not really painful but it is annoying and a distraction from the music. * The extension cable is pretty much required to use these unless you plug them into something in an unusually high chest pocket * The thing I dislike most about these headphones is how fragile the extension cable is, after 9 months I'm on my third cable, the previous two having lost an audio channel within 3-4 months. Beyerdynamic have sent me free ones each time no questions asked though so kudos on the support there. However even with a fully functional one, I can never get over handling it gingerly as though it could break at any moment because to be honest it probably could. I'm somewhat surprised that the cables going into the ear buds themselves haven't broken given they feel just as fragile.
Some more specific good points: * Includes a set of ComplyFoam eartips. These really do make a difference to the comfort and listening experience compared to the standard rubbery eartips. I suggest definitely trying them and then picking up some from ComplyFoam if you like them. * Very lightweight * Very supple cables, they have very little "memory" to them and they are very easy to untangle * They can be worn over-ear although the thickness of the flat cable might get in your way, especially if you wear glasses * Includes cable clips * Cable is just about long enough without too much excess length (for an average 5'8-6'0 man) * Includes case. I don't use mine often but it's nice to have when you need it
Overally I'd say they're worth getting, but be aware of their limitations before jumping in.

I agree. I would prefer one with an inline mic as well. I've started a poll for IEMs with inline mics here https://www.massdrop.com/vote/iems-with-in-line-mics
