I really like these headphones.
They sound great and seem durable enough for everyday use (though I did chip the plastic where it meets the headband on the right earcup).
BUT I almost returned these because of intermittent static sounds. I spent hours trying to fix this by looking online for solutions people have posted on online forums and trying them out. After trying all sorts of computer settings, I contacted Massdrop and they were very quick to respond and answer any questions I had. They graciously offered to refund me but I was still reluctant to give up these headphones. I decided to try a few possible solutions I came up with and the last one worked! Looking back now, I don't know why I didn't try this sooner...
In case you don't know, the Analog version has an amplifier which is housed in the remote. The USB plug isn't just for the blue LED lighting, it powers the amplifier. The amp is not that great and if you turn the volume knob to the max you can clearly hear the static hiss the amp adds. It's there in normal volume usage but it isn't too noticeable in silence. Anyways, it seems that the amp is very sensitive and according to what I've read online, is the major point of failure for people who actually have defective headsets. I had mine plugged into a USB 3.0 slot on my ASUS RVE motherboard (it only has 1 USB 2.0 port which I had reserved for my printer). Switching it to a USB 2.0 port eliminated all the random static noise I had been hearing. My guess is that the USB 3.0 produces much more EMI than the USB 2.0.
