Nowhere in the description of this drop does it say that the IEMs would be issued in platform-specific versions. I got a set of Jives that won't work with my IOS phone. Greeaaaat, I got the worst ones and they're not even usable. Seems a little weird to leave platform compatibility up to chance, doesn't it?

Guess you'll have to get rid of that iPhone and buy an Android.

well they will work, just the controls and mic wont, i would suggest hopping on head-fi and seeing if somebody wants to trade, or you may even go back a few pages see if somebody got ios ver of jives and would trade you, it would cost you a few bucks shipping but....IMHO would be worth a shot...i think somebody mentioned getting the ios ver but having a non-apple phone..
you should really look to apple and ask them why they insist on using a proprietary wiring design rather then the industry standard...

Good points. However, I'm not really interested in coordinating a trade and shipment just to get a usable pair of $20 headphones :) In the meantime there will be many users receiving stuff they can't (fully) use, without any indication of that possibility in the drop. Just false advertising and a bad look for Massdrop, I'd say.

not really false advertising, i knew full well reading up on drops that i very likely would get an apple version if i got a unit with controls, its a grab bag, thats how they work many times.
it would have been nice if you could have made the pref request for android or ios, and they made at least the attempt to give people what they requested (based on order-order..)
anyway, find somebody you know whos got that kinda phone, sell them the set for the going rate, buy a set you can use..thats what im doing with my s5's....fucking apple just gotta be different just to fuck with people.
