I would have to assume that these are the S1+. Pretty sure the box labeling has always been S1. The original was discontinued with the changes of the S1+. There is a slight possibility that this is somehow old stock, but I doubt it.
I had the chance to try these when they were first brought to market at a CanJam event. I told them the issues I had with the original S1 and they fixed 95% of them in the S1+ model. This deal is better than they've offered for show discounts (usually around $170). I've been wanting one of these for a while for casual listening around the house.
Once Massdrop confirms that these are the S1+, I'm going to have a hard time not biting. I'm still worried about quality control and longevity issues with these.

Aw Kamaka, I thought you were a Massdrop employee, your picture threw me off.
What was wrong with the S1 that was fixed in the S1+? What wasn't fixed? Quality control and longevity issues, are they known issues with the S1?
Thanks!

My memory is a little vague on all the minor details, but I do remember clamp and ear pads being my main issue with the original. They came back the following year at CanJam 2015 with the S1+ that had taken care of both of those issues for me. I have no idea how my avatar got changed to this, tbh. Maybe I'll stop being lazy and change it to something else. I've read a number of reviews off various sites with different issues. Some I can interpret as user error, but other things have me worried. Not sure what the warranty is like on these.

@MassDropStaff, Can you confirm if this is truly S1 stock or if it should be correctly labelled as S1+? A handful (at least) of us are waiting for this confirmation before diving in.

Sorry for the confusion, everyone. Yes, this is a drop for the original Pendulumic Stance S1, not the S1+.
