First i blamed (mass)Drop, but then realised that i was wrong, FOCAL doesn´t allow (mass)Drop to ship the Elex to European countries. Why? Because americans are very poor and can´t suport thr original msrp, and europeans are rich and can very well pay twice the price of what´s asked to americans citizens. So i purchase a ZMF, cheaper (than Clears) and better IMO. THANKS FOCAL. WELL DONE!!
I like how the first sentence was reasonably correct but then immediately after you start to go way off track and attempt to insult a large body of people all because you can't purchase a headphone?
It's really as simple as, Focal currently doesn't want the Elex sold in EU.
I´m sorry??!! Insult a vast number of people?? You didn´t understand what i meant then, i´m not critizing americans citizens by saying that Focal thinks that their are poor and the Europeans rich, or that they want to sell a certain model in the U.S and not in EU. The objective of my comment was Focal not americans. Sorry if i hurt your feelings, not my intention, but i really don´t think you understood mu comment.
Yeah, I actually read what you said as satire, that you were mocking Focal by saying their policy amounts to the absurd notion that Americans are sooo much poorer than Europeans and so they "had" to reduce the price for us... :D I didn't take offense as an American myself, I thought it was funny. :D I actually do feel bad, on the other hand, that you can't take advantage of the good deal as a European... it confuses me since we actually here in America can, in fact, still buy Elear, Clear, etc., the rest of their higher-end headphones, from authorized dealers here, so I'm not sure why they wouldn't sell Elex there?
Wow your a deutche bag aren’t you.
Why?? Are you a Focal dealer?? If you are then i understand your position, if you aren´t i don´t. Read the comment again, it´s aimed at Focal, not to the americans citizens or europeans for that matter. Now if you feel offended by my comment, it was not my intention. Just one more thing, for the sake of this forum it would be nice that before calling deutche bag to someone you would be certain of the reason for that or at least ask to that person what was behind the comment made. Don´t you think.? Apparently there are some people that don´t know what´s irony or satire. Well ...
That was exactly what i meant. Unfortunately there were some people that didn´t understand what i meant and feelt offended by my comment. I didn´t wanted to offend no one, not americans neither europeans. I think it is obvious what my objective was.
All good Tuga. No harm no foul. I am Canadian myself so it's my job to forgive and say sorry.
Honestly, Focal probably regrets doing this deal and throwing a wrench in their current line-up because it really makes the whole transition from Elear to Clear slightly confusing and well... irrelevant because why buy the Elear at the original MSRP of $1000 when this is less... there is no reason someone would want to pay more for that unless they were in love with that specific headphone.
But now, the Elear has dropped in price in most areas from what I've seen and it is probably due to this Model being made and introduced which I am OK with and actually, I just bought the Elear instead of the Elex because I got it for slightly less in a bundle with included Utopia Pads (what sold me) and a Hard Case. No XLR cable but I wouldn't be using it anyways (with my current setup - not sure how long that will last since I've been eyeballing the 789) and a lot of people were complaining that the cables with the Elex were not great anyways so I just got a third party cable to swap in.
And now I bought the Elex pads to triple the fun. Elear/Elex/Utopia pads for all the fun.
Can someone point me to the Audiophile Anonymous class before it's too late?
I´m glad it´s ok, i´m not in this forum to offend no one. I was in the fence between Elear and clear my self, that´s why i was upset with the fact that i couldn´t buy the Elex, but from what i know elex is Elear with Clear pads, so your good to go. BTW how do you like your Elear?
Do the pads make that much of a difference? About the cables, from what i know Focal stock cables aren´t very good, try Periapt cables good quality and not expensive.
