Any idea on if drop will ever start repairing MD+ iems?

more_vert
I have a pair of Massdrop Plus iems and while they've gone through a lot of use, they're still in great condition. Recently, one of the shells developed a hairline crack in them, and while they're still completely functional, I preferred to have them repaired before the shell was damaged any further. I contacted drop support about if I could initiate repair but I was told that because I'm out of the warranty period, there's nothing that they could do. I mentioned that I was willing to pay out of pocket for repair as well but the answer stayed the same. Honestly, it's extremely frustrating that drop charges $300 USD for a product, yet the moment the one-year warranty is over, they absolutely refuse to even think about repairing or servicing one of their products. Basically, if your iems break. all you can do is either live with having a broken, non-functional product or buy the whole thing altogether again. I don't think I'm being unreasonable in purchasing a several hundred dollar product and being extremely unsatisfied with how little drop is willing to stand behind the quality of their products. When my only options are to keep a broken pair of iems, spend another three hundred dollars, or invest in a custom reshell that would cost more than the iems are themselves, I think that's pretty pathetic. Does anyone have any idea on if drop will ever service out-of-warranty products or give an option of purchasing an extended warranty?

Try optoma/nuforce, they are the one's who manufactured the unit and would be more than likely the best option for repair. Drop doesn't do the manufacturing themselves, they partner with existing operations. They are fairly active on here so maybe @Jyri can help.

Sorry Jyri, was thinking of the EDC

Not a problem at all.

I was just about to buy these when they went off sale :( does anyone know how regularly these go on sale? Also, what's up with the "9 days left" under the add to cart button? Does that mean there's only 9 days left to buy these before they leave the site? If that's true are there any equivalent headphones in the $400 range (preferably closed back)?

I got the headphones and within one week the cord kinked, (I'll admit possible cat nibble) and now dead. Is it a limited lifetime warranty and/or is it a fixable problem?

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
