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

Hey, is there anyway to contact concerning broken earbuds or ways to fix these earbuds?

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!

Hey gemmoglock, Vansen has added you to the loaner list on SBAF. :)

Hello @CEE_TEE that's awesome thanks so much for helping! :D
Is there any way I could just buy one ear monitor, I lost the right one. Overall great sounding and super comfortable, just wish that the locking mechanism was more secure.
I'm trying to troubleshoot a broken right earbud. Any tips? I have just a tiny bit of sound coming through it not the full sound like it used to be.
Does anyone have an extra right ear piece? Mine has always been loose and it finally got lost like two days ago, which I’ve been searching for for said two days.
About a month after using these, every time I put in the right earbud the housing always clicks and every time I adjust it, it clicks. It's seriously becoming annoying every time I hear that click
I was putting these in my pocket while walking on the sidewalk when the plastic covering broke off on of the drivers, leaving the wire exposed. When I pulled it out of my pocket, the wire snapped and I guess I dropped driver. Is there any way to buy a replacement for the right earbud?
can I get replacement ear pieces anywhere because the inner cables that connected to the contacts ripped and now the right earbud is now useless
Benig
I have the same issue but with the left one. I regret spending the money on this, it is definitely not durable for a 60$ product, and I've only had them for 3 months!
Benig
almost the same issue, i lost my right bud completely im very upset.
I purchased these headphone about a month ago and I love them. These are by far the best headphones you can purchase for under 100 dollars. I did have a little problem with the ear tips and the massdrop support was quick to help me and fixed the issue. Their customer service is some of the best I have experienced.
Anyone interested in selling or gifting me the braided cable that came with your EDC? I've broken both my cables, and after contacting NuForce, I've come to the understanding that they just don't sell the cables separately. And I think the braided cable that came with EDC is of higher quality (built-wise) than all other cheap aftermarket cables I've tried. Contact me at kesginergin@gmail.com if you are interested in selling the cable.

This is not right. Let me clarify this to our team. There must have been a miscommunication from our side. My apologies for this. I’ll email you and we will get this sorted out! -Jyri/NuForce

Id really like this but with my right side earbud (the whole thing) missing. I contacted customer service and got told they cant sell individual parts, im very sad because im in love with these.
Guys... I just got mine last May. They were working perfectly until last week. The right monitor suddenly lost volume, like it had been muffled. There is no ear wax clogs, of course its not a ear problem neither a cable problem. I believe it should be something with de driver/monitor. Any way to replace it ? I was very pleased by the experience of a good quality phone, but dying in 6 months ?? Frustrated @Jyri

The same thing happened to me, but in a year, so no warranty for me. It waserfect, the iem was clean, my ears are working perfect and cables are okay, i have also never thrown them around and always put them in the carrying case when putting them in my bag for example. Over the course of last two weeks one of the monitors (left one for me) slowly lost volume. I also noticed that the over all impedance had increased, because the right one is also a bit more muted, when the left is connected. Since it happened almost exactly a year after the purchase was made I have nothing to do, no warranty no nothing. :(
Hi all, is anybody’s left side going in and out.. I have to call customer service I guess.
I really love these earbuds, they sound great and fit very well. Sadly the left earbud sat very lose in the connector which in turn made me lose the earbud while puling out of my pocket. I'm guessing this isn't covered by warranty but how would I go about getting a new left earbud.
Now in my review, I had noted how one of my medium sized eartips split into two pieces. Customer support was kind enough to extend the option to have a replacement sent. However, in the same week, one of the small eartips I used broke from the exact same issue. The part of the eartip connecting to the IEM separated from the round part that makes contact with the ear. Since this happened with one of the medium AND one of the small sized eartips, I figured a replacement would just be pointless because it would break again, even despite me being very careful with the amount of pressure I apply. That said, does anybody have recommendation for silicone eartips that are compatible with the EDC's? Contrary to what people seem to say, I found that the foam tips are extremely uncomfortable, reduces the sound quality quite a bit compared to silicone (much less clarity, VERY noticeable less bass and highs), and the pressure it puts on my ear actually even gave me an ear infection according to my local health centre.
Where do we get replacement cables from?
Does the cable with the mic causes occasional static shocks to anyone else?
Thumbs up for Massdrop the Mike cable on my pair stopped working properly. I contacted Support & as they didn't have a replacement cable they promptly sent me a whole new unit. So if anyone has any reservations about Massdrop support I can give a wholehearted recommendation Cheers David
One of the monitors stopped working, is there any service center available in Bangalore? If yes, can they help? Didn't expect the headphones to be so feeble. Very disappointing experience. @Jyri

Update: Massdrop has shipped out a replacement. Appreciate the support given by Christian and David from Massdrop.
Hi guys I recently purchased a pair of these and I absolutely loved the sound of them. However, I quickly experienced an issue with my pair, the connection between the drivers and the cable were extremely lose and came out easily. This resulted in me losing one side of the IEMS with the driver coming loose from the cable. After a quick search I found out I was not the only one facing this issue. I don't think the warranty covers this situation, but does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do? Thanks!

Exactly what happened to mine. Shoot a query through the Massdrop support and they should get back to you pretty quickly.

I've been having the same issue since buying them. I thought i was doing something wrong with the mounting. But now after i've been looking through here i can see a few people have the same issue.
I have just recently gotten the EDCs and out of the box I am experiencing issues. The bass on them are very uneven and a pop is frequently heard whenever I play or pause a song. I've read that this may be due to damaged drivers as it only occurs on my EDCs and not my other IEMs or headphones. The popping happens on all sources that they are plugged into with both included wires, be it my phone or amp. Is it possible to get replacements?
Does anyone know if comply eartips would work good with these?
Got one for sale in Toronto area, if anyone is looking. Brand New, unopened. Ended up ordering two sets and keeping one.

I'm in the downtown area. Pls msg at Bensontam@gmail.com
do these have a warranty?
Can replacement cables be bought anywhere?
Hi! is there any way to order replacement cables for these? the left cable on the braided one I own is quite loose now and music would cut out to the left bud if nudged in the wrong position. I'm sure its the cable, as I've swapped it out for the smooth one and now works just fine. Thanks!
Thinking of joining this drop but am seeing so many issues being reported here about failures that its left me sitting on the fence. Are the reported failures due to heavy handling or just build quality? I'm located in Australia so if I buy I assume I won't get much in terms of warranty.

Thanks for the excellent info. I've joined the drop and they are currently on their way.
Cheers. Thanks for the feedback.
After much happy listening after receiving these in January, the right earpiece has gone quieter than the left earpiece.
I've tried another cable and even swapping ears to see if the problem was with my ears, but there's definitely something wrong with the right earpiece.

I had that problem with lots if in ear buds. Threw 2 or 3 pairs of Sennheisers away. The same thing hsppened with jabra elite in ear. I was using bluetack to remove crap out of the foil that protects driver and the foil accidentally came off. That's where the problem was. It was full of crap. It had gone through the foil and blocked up the tube. Pretty gross. Probably the way I had been cleaning them. I cleaned that out and they're good again. I threw out three $90 sets of sennheisers and I bet it was same thing. I could've saved them. Oh well. Live and learn I suppose.
What's the standard warranty length on these? 1 year? If so my left earbud has experienced the same issue a lot of people here have seemed to have... slowly faded in volume over the course of a week and now no longer works at all. Right at 11 months of ownership. I tried swapping cables and using different sources to no avail. Contacted Massdrop support, hopefully they can help with this.

Hi Jyri, My earphone stopped working on one side. Could you assist me with replacement?
Cjeremy
@Cjeremy Open a ticket with Massdrop support, it worked for me. It took almost a week for an initial response and about a week for a replacement to get here, but it did happen.
These worked wonderfully for a while but now both buds are super finicky and i have to wiggle the over the ear wires and hope they work. It does it with both the supplied cables, i believe its a problem with the loose-ness of the connector prongs themselves, Shame really i loved these earbuds
HudJay
Can you try to make sure the cables are plugged in all the way? The connector itself seldom fails. It would be more likely that a cable has something wrong. If you are sure the cables are plugged in all the way we could send you a new cable so that you can test if that helps.
