Can you talk to westone on new drop. W30 w40 or um pro series.
I received mine today. I must say, I have extremely mixed feelings. The initial impression of audio performance is pretty good, and it should improve as they break in. Unfortunately, I'm utterly disappointed with the build quality of both the IEM's and cables. Hell, even the tips feel crappy compared to the Comply variants I use. This has definitely been a good experience for me, though, since I will now stick to Amazon when it comes to these types of purchases. There's no use in saving some money in exchange for giving up a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. I will probably just sell these for what I got them for sans shipping and buy something with a better build quality, like RHA's or Shure's. Regardless, thanks for those in the community who took the time to answer my questions and posted comments on what was going on with the drop. Cheers!

I will buy them from you and pay for shipping
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Westone W40 IEMs and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will ship the individual orders directly to you. The current estimated ship date is 5/4.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 4/13.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (massdrop.com/helpcenter).
Just came back to grab one after I couldn't join on my phone. Oh well. For those wondering, the drop price was $359.99. Said it was limited to 10 units.

Interesting. Snackthak's comment is timestamped as 8 hours ago. Anyways, thanks for the heads up! :)

Yes sorry, just saw that, I was referring to the older ones with a pricing of 349. Anyhow, I saw the final drop level and it was 369 this time.... Cheers!
No but what's even the price of these? This drop is a real tease. Plus they never tell you later how much it actually went for and creates a blind interest in the next.

This time, the price went down to 369.99 not including shipping
I recommend getting Comply Foam to go with these. Absolute comfort and noise isolation. I own the Westone 4R.
What's going on here? How much was the drop for anyhow? And it just vanished. Finished. Can anyone at least say how much they dropped it for?

If you have a confirmation you will be fine. Not the first time they have typos or mistakes in the description. They are only human too.

The last price was 369.99 not including shipping
Confused - drop has 8 days left. "10 units only," but 15 have been purchased? I'd like to buy a set, but are any available?

Gosh. This was such a weird drop, in terms of its abrupbt appearance in my regular email blasts, and also the drop's apparent duration, and the appearance of it as overselling. I'm glad I counterintuitively ordered.

Agreed. I already received a tracking number and it's scheduled to be delivered on Monday. Again, I'm confused, as the ship date was set to 5/4. Not going to complain though!
Is this CAD or USD pricing...? My local store in Canada sells these at the exact pricing at 599 -.- .
This is interesting. Limited to a drop of 10, but 12 have been purchased.
Description says limited to 10, placed order at 13 now. Someone need to fix something.
These sound dark and warm, used to be my kind of sound but not anymore. For anyone getting these, I'd recommend the W30s which sound similar
I find the fact that this drop is limited to 10 units a bit disturbing...
This item is requested at almost double the amount necessary for another drop, currently at 344, can we expect this to go back up soon?
Anyone know if there is a source for replacement covers?
Hi group, there are over 200 requests at the moment, any chance this will be redropped?

Danny, thank you for clarification. So basically those who purchased W40 from this drop will be covered by MassDrop 1-year refund warranty only, and NOT a 2-year manufacturer repair warranty from Westone. Personally, I have been using W40 for over a year, and never had an issue. Solid build, great sound, and replaceable cable!
I paid over $300 for my pair of W3's back in the day. Wish I had the money, from what I've been told the W4's were much cleaner sounding. Wish I had the spare cash right now, what a deal.
At $349, I think it would be a great deal!
W40 regular price in China, including two-year warranty, no temptation.
According to Westone this is not an authorized sale and will not be honored under warranty? Be aware!

Hey twister,
This product was sourced from a Westone vendor rather than the direct manufacturer. We stand behind all Massdrop purchases, so members joining the drop will also receive a 1 year warranty direct from us. If you have any problems related to a defective product, ping support@massdrop.com and they'll get you squared away.
Best price I have seen. Finally!!!
$349 Is a great price, much better than the last drop! Thanks for listening Massdrop!
this is an item too expensive for the unreliable and slow postage service.

@needhelp I've bought the Shure s535 as well as other expensive headphones for around the same price here in Massdrop. I've also recommend it to a friend and he got his Shure s535 without a problem. I'll agree that the delivery time is longer than with other services (Amazon). But Massdrop has always been transparent about the delivery/shipping and has put all their efforts to get the product to their customers. In my opinion, I wouldn't bought something here when I have time restrictions (I need the item in less than two weeks). But other than that, they offer a good deal for high quality items. Also they have always been responsive regarding the shipping status and eager to solve any customer issue (if any).
Amazon is selling this for $499.99...... you can get it within 2 days....

See above. BuySonic has them new for $370 (+$2 US Shipping).
Hey folks FYI: for those of you new to Westone IEMs and their specific tips. They provide 2 types: silicon Star tips and their own foam tips. (not the same as Comply tips) What I've found is that the Silicon tips provide a MUCH cleaner sound. The Foamies can muffle the sound and take a big bite out of treble extension. Just a note for new owners so they don't freak out.
I bought a set of the W40's around three weeks ago for $371 delivered, mainly to use with my Sony nwz-a17slv, they're ok for portable use, but last night I compared them to my HD600's played back through my Benchmark DAC2 and there is no comparison, the Senn's absolutely killed em', the W40's sounded muddy and one dimensional in comparison.
