My pads ended up ripping (a small, barely noticeable tear quickly turned into half the pad falling apart at the seam), with one side currently being held together with a helluva lot of duct tape. A fix to this would be to buy a pair of covers, but I'm just going to opt out and try to grab a new pair of headphones (love 'em to death and they're a good pair which lasted me a bit over a year, but they're too much trouble).
My pads are starting to rip open. Any ideas on how to replace/fix them ?

Same here, i was expecting more quality from a '300'$ product.

As bad as the earpa As bad as the earpads degrading is. I noticed this hissing sound coming from one of my headphones "speakers".
For months I thought I had developed tinnitus, it wasn't until today that I accidentally my headphones backwards that I notice the hissing switched sides.

Didn't like mine at all. Sold them on a local forum - a couple of ppl. bid on them, somehow made a small profit - and the guy that bought them loves them. Win / Win. :)
My remote/mic cable is failing (randomly plays, pauses and adjusts volume on multiple devices, sound like crap on a call). Anyone have a good place to find a replacement?
Mine were defective. I've sent them to Philips and they told me they don't have any pair to replace them with (product out retired from marked). They are proposing replacing them with a similar product having the price I've payed to Massdrop (99€). I'm sure Philips headphones in with that price won't be as good as these ones. I'm now waiting for Massdrop to write me back, if they are able to replace the defective unit or not.
I have just returned from the customs office. Had to pay 25$ customs, but thankfully the headphones have been sounding great so far.
I received mine, they turned out to be defective. I returned them, Massdrop told me it would be 3-4 weeks for a replacement, if the manufaturer had some. I asked for a refund and Massdrop have not responded to any of the emails sent for the last 11 days. I am appaled by the lack of customer service.
Anybody else still waiting for theirs to arrive?
Just received the package and noticed the left ear pad is upside down. So basically it doesn't seal correctly over my ear affecting comfort and sound quality. Paid $15 shipping and $20 for customs. Someone from support here can help me?
Are my headphones defective ? Plugin in the mic cable all the way gives me very faint sounds, full treble and no bass, voices feel really distant (that's the best I can describe it). Loosening the cable just a few millimeters give me the full sound. Also pressing the mute button when the cable is plugged all the way works. Is this normal or happening to anyone else ? Can I expect different for returning and getting a new unit ?

So got it yesterday and everything is working fine, I try it with my PC, my DAC and my music player never have this issue =/ , are you sure it is not the jack port which is damaged?

What is the exact type of jack on your PC, a stereo TRS (Tip/Ring/Sleeve) audio output only, or a combined audio out/mic in TRRS (Tip/Ring/Ring/Sleeve)?
Usually, the issue is if you use the remote/mic TRRS cable plugged into an audio out only TRS jack. Some of those jacks do not have a very solid ground tab (are not in spec). The pinout of the TRRS is Left (T)/Right (R)/Ground (R)/Mic(S). What should happen if you plug in a TRRS to a TRS jack, is the ground tab of the jack should contact both the ground and mic contacts of the plug, the RS of the TRRS plug. What happens when you push it all the way into a crappy TRS jack is the ground tab only contacts the mic (S), leaving the headphones ungrounded which causes them to sound exactly as you describe (no bass, very distant sounding). When you push the mic button, it shorts the mic/ground lines (normally how a phone detects the button press), which grounds the headphones and they'll sound normal. When you pull the plug out just a little, the ground tab now contacts both the ground/mic pins, grounding the headphones, causing them to sound normal.
TL;DR The L1's are fine. The jack on your pc doesn't work right with the remote/mic cable.
Options: 1) use the non-mic cable on your pc 2) get a better pc/sound card with better 3.5mm jacks 3) get a TRRS jack to separate headphone/mic plugs to use the mic on a PC. (looks like a female 3.5mm to dual male 3.5mm, but has a female TRRS to dual male TRS jacks, one for headphones, one for mic)
My delivery status (to NL), still waiting for an update:
Jun 22, 2015 8:34 AM ET En route to DHL eCommerce Distribution Center
Jun 17, 2015 3:43 PM GMT Electronic Notification Received
Still waiting for mine. And no update on the tracking number since 18.
$63 USD for customs? The receipt says it is tax for a $299 purchase not a $99. Is that businesses as usual, or MD messed up the import ?
Got my headphones! Pleased with the sound quality, needs a bit of a bass boost but a tweak on the eq will fix that. My only problem is comfort! Bit tight on my head. Also, the ear cups rotate 90 degrees in the wrong way! Makes it a lil difficult to use 1 ear style if I wanna half listen and half pay attention
Thank you Massdrop! I have a really nice headphone and amplifier now. Reading the votes and comments really makes it easy to buy smart! Love it!
Just paid for customs. I should be receiving my order tomorrow.
wengus
where are you leaving? I never pay customs with massdrop!
Armin
I live in UK and everything over like $100 we have to pay customs
After 2 weeks my tracking number finally works :) (delivery in france). It says Electronic Notification Received, i think it will be delivered today
MaxOuille
I think it just means that it has just shipped.
MaxOuille
it will take a least one week to deliver once the notification is received.
So I never got a tracking number, but it's showing as delivered! Haven't been home yet to validate; anyone lay hands on theirs yet?
Update: got em and they look and sound fantastic! Great first drop; thanks MD!
I've send a ticket about the order/delivery status to support as well (asked them to keep the participants up to date in the discussion).
UPDATE: DHL Tracking seems to be working now!!
massdrop support team answer my email and it seems that they messed up with DHL tracking number but they assure me that I will get my headphones as planned even if iIcannot track it let's hope everything will be fine.
Armin
Thanks for the update! Surprised why they couldn't just tell the community here.
Another DHL number not working here... Package is coming to Bulgaria. I hope I don't have to wait for a month.

Thanks for the update Kat! I'll let you know if it's been too long to receive my order
The tracking number is not working for me either. I don't understand if the dhl service used does not support international tracking at all, or if the package still need to be taken by dhl itself.

DHL supports internacional tracking. I have gotten stuff from massdrop using the same shippment mechanism. I understand delays and hicups can and will ocurr from time to time. What I don't its the total silence from MD part. Even just to acknowledge the situation would give me some kind of piece of mind.
me either, tried to refresh the DHL tracking page, but nothing shown...
No tracking number either. An update would be appreciated
This isn't a good sign. If you guys haven't received yours yet, I hate to think when I'll be getting mine! My first time using Massdrop and it's not turning into a good one!
Same here, DHL does not recognise my tracking number. Hope the shipping goes alright (ordered 3 pieces).
Anyone from US get their pair yet? I'm in London, UK and the wait without a tracking number is killing me.
I got my DHL number but each time I am trying, dhl site keep saying that the number doesn't exist! anybody else have the same problem?
Armin
I have it also, I thought 1 or 2 days was a reasonable time to wait for a status change. now on day 4 I am thinking something went wrong.
Armin
I have a same issue. T number not showing.
Great news group! The vendor has let us know that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse now. Based on the tracking provided these are scheduled to come in 6/9. Our warehouse team has been forwarded tracking info and will be standing by, ready to get these packed up and turned around as soon as they come in.
Sometimes shipments get delayed en route, not to worry as we will keep the group posted throughout the process and notify you all if anything causes delay.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 6/10 or sooner if something comes up.
HassanS
Tracking number doesn't work for me as well. Please update us on the status.
HassanS
Is the 6/10 update still happening ?
I've been struggling with the question of whether I need these cans or not and I finally decided I don't need them, I want them. Ordered a set. I blame/credit Tyll for my purchase, of course.
