My first pair had a tiny bit of mold on the case and one of the 2.5mm plug sockets was defective, second one the case was covered in mold and some was also on the headphones. FYI.

Yep. My case was covered in mold as well. The mold started growing inside the case through the zipper. Can't believe this happened. Never in the years I've bought headphones has this ever happened to me. Got a return shipping label and refund though.

I too noticed an imbalance in the drivers where the left side seem to be louder and has more bass distortion on certain source. Straight out of the box they were unlistenable. After some burn-in time they settle a bit and mellowed down a little. Tried the two pad options and the smaller pad with the heavier foam tame down the mid bass resonance but overall made the headphone sound recessed with the imbalance still very obvious. Right now, I have inserted a felt pad insert that I got from my Dan Clark Aeons on the left side only and it's doing enough to tune the mid bass down on the left. On some music they sound great. Will see what further burning-in will help. So far 20hrs in and they recommend at least 40 hours.

Added another 12 hours of burning in yesterday. A mix of normal listening and pink noise. The sound have developed some more it seems.

Can anyone using Brainwavz or Yaxi pads with the 99's tell me - are you able to install them in the groove the OEM pads use or are you pulling them over the sides / onto the wood? I'm having a tough time getting 3rd party pads to fit like the OEM's do, maybe it's not possible

I have recently received my 99 Noir in Peru, but sadly they've como defective. They have an unbearable distortion/vibration on the left speaker with all vocals independently of the source I use. Does Drop have customer support for this issues? They are unusable.

I too have the imbalance on the left driver. It's much louder and bass is more boomy to a point you can feel the difference between the left and right side. What I've done to fix this is to open up the left driver cover by removing the four torx screws and you'll see a piece of foam behind the driver. I added a piece of cotton wool behind this foam piece in the earcup and put the driver back together. I only did this to the left side. It tamed down the bass on the left and removed the imbalance to a point that it's a great listening pair of headphones now.

I don't want to stir up any controversy, but I picked up the silver-plated upgrade cable, and I think it does a really great job of refining the 99 Noir. Whatever mojo silver works on the Meze's sound, it's a pretty fantastic pairing. Helps make them more scalable with higher end portable gear, and given me a better appreciation for this design. The other crucial word being portable. It's incredibly efficient. (50 mW max power?) Giving it too much power makes the bass bloom even further. So using it on low gain (and single-ended!) tends to yield the best results.

Are they built with actual, real wood earcups? Walnut stained I believe. Anybody owns these, confirm this please?
