Well deserved as well; I've had these for about 5 months and they've been wonderful for me

Hey Everyone! Here's a new in-ear monitor (IEM) from us that I'm really excited about. Something the audiophile community has requested for a long time: an inexpensive, removable cable IEM. While that might not sound exciting at first, it's the combination of features plus execution with attention to detail that is hard to find at a low price point. Most companies don’t set out with the clear intention of making the very best entry-level product. They start out with a high-end product and then whittle down features until they feel comfortable selling it for less. The result isn’t a holistically considered product but just a “low-end thing”.
There are a few community-favorite, great-sounding IEMs out there for under $100. The problem has been that if the cable breaks on your $40 "giant-killer" and you need to buy a new one...now it's an $80 IEM with the same risks. But, changing an existing favorite to have removable cables takes: new tooling/molds, reliable connectors, and can also change the sound (many IEMs have small housings and need to be made larger to accept removable connectors). After trying to improve some of the favorite low-cost IEMs, we opened up the search for a partner who understood what we were trying to do and could create a new product for us from the ground up.
There are a couple more requirements the community gave us for this project from all of your requests and feedback online: -A lot of people like the option of a microphone cable, but some audiophiles swear the electronic circuit in the cable changes the sound. Needs to have a microphone cable AND a braided cable. -Even some community-favorite, low priced IEMs can vary a lot between units. If you have to buy more than one unit to get the sound you want, the price increases. So the units have to be consistent to provide value. A requirement for the NuForce EDC is to be within +/-2 dB of left/right channel matching and from the frequency response target. This is being carefully worked on to scale with production.
NuForce is already known for having very comfortable IEMs. We were really happy that they were willing to work with Massdrop and the audiophile community to provide the above and tune an all-around fun, musical sound signature with clarity and bass that works for travel, gym, or quiet listening environments.
Just for fun. My first portable rig amp back in 2010 was...a NuForce!

Massdrop is *extremely* unhelpful with replacement cables. Both of mine broke within the first two months of using these earphones. I was able to fix one of the cables, but my fix eventually broke as well. Instead of contacting massdrop, I reached out directly to nuforce and they replaced the cable free of charge, no questions asked. Shipped for free too, took only about a week to get in. @massdrop please make there be an easier way to acquire cable replacements. Having the proprietary connector with no options to purchase a cable really hurts this product.

I forget how I came to it, I think I found it on the NuForce website. The person who contacted me was madelined@techservicecorp.com.

Is there a type-c cable available for these IEMs? If so, it would be great if it was sold here

I wonder if I can upgrade to a balanced cable- 0.78mm 2-Pin to 2.5mm TRRS plug?

That’s called taxes... you would most likely pay more if importing yourself from drop.com

Kinda disappointed as the transparent housing on my left IEM has fallen off and refuses to stay together after a year and a half of moderate use and always putting the headphones wrapped in the included carrying case. I would rather not glue it back together, I don't want to mess up anything in the housing and then completely lose my IEMs. Other than the housing problem, these IEMs are great. The sound is really good for the price and market that they're geared towards. They are super comfortable too. EDIT: Putting them on today at work, it appears now that the left IEM, no has no sense of highs. Listening to several rock songs that have guitar solos on several different platforms, I am not able to hear the same highs on the left that I do on the right side. Now pretty disappointed in these, I guess time to try the EDC3? Hopefully the durability on those is a lot better.

I'm really happy to see these in the EU store, albeit at a higher cost. I ordered them, but the shipping date is changing every 48 hours. When will they be shipped?
