Just wanted to pop in and announce the drawing for the FI-BA-SS. Our final sale count was below 100, but this was due to some fraudulent orders being cancelled. Obviously, the community should not be punished for this!
The lucky participant who drew the FI-BA-SS is....
you just restored my faith in massdrop by a huge ammount, thank you!
You are welcome, Grove86. My emails got that rolling. :) Enjoy.
Thanks everyone! I'm excited to let you all know that I've received the FI-BA-SS. Although I am excited, upon opening the box, I am concerned about few things.
The box is definitely not the retail version and is missing accessories. What the product came with is provided as pictures. It seems like it was tempered with prior to shipping. The inner cardboard lining piece was ripped already. It only came with 1 rubber earphone tip and the carrying case is definitely not Fi-Ba-SS carrying case. HEAVEN V Aging carrying case was thrown inside. You can easily look up what the unbox picture looks like. The first provided picture is what i found on google image. second and third pictures are what I received. It also had some white dust/specs on them upon opening as if someone has tried them on...(seriously?! yuck)
in fact, i found a review describing the content of the box from a audiophile forum:
The FADs come in a simple but elegant black rectangular box. Inside the contents are quite skimpy. There is the earphones themselves, 3 sets of silicon tips, a large carrying case, warranty card and 1-page manual. The manual gives nothing except return information (in Japanese).
The case is HUGE and fairly well-made. It has three pockets on the inside, large enough to hold the FADs as well as my Ipod Touch. A shiny FINAL AUDIO DESIGN plaque on the front is a nice touch as well. However I usually prefer to keep my touch in my pocket and have already been using a much more compact Philips case to hold my FADs.
Overall the packaging gets the job done but is borderline pathetic for such an expensive product. My 530s trove of included accessories certainly put it to shame! The 1-year warranty isn't very impressive for such an expensive product either."
So what's going on? Tampering with customers' product isn't something that should be overlooked. I'm hoping that Massdrop can fix this issue immediately.
