  1. Etymotic ER4XR are $160 at Adorama: https://www.adorama.com/etyer4xr.html?emailprice=t&sterm
  2. Ah, the impossible balancing act between having compassion for all humans and minimizing personal suffering by decreasing unwanted social interactions. What are we to do?
  3. Also, I just looked in the discussion thread for the Massdrop x Focal Elex and I noticed that some people were complaining about driver failures. One of the employees posted this update recently: This makes me think that some Elex headphones were also wired incorrectly, causing them to have the same reverberation that I was hearing with the Utopias.
  4. Just got my repaired Utopias back—both drivers were replaced and now they sound a bit different than they did before. Previously, they had a strange reverberation to the sound, which was especially noticeable in the bass. I've been in touch with the people I bought them from and apparently some recently manufactured Utopias were wired incorrectly, causing them to have the strange reverberation and making them more likely to fail. I thought that was just the way that Utopias sounded and I got used to it, but I definitely prefer them without that "feature".
  5. Focal just announced new closed-back headphones made in partnership with Bentley (?). They use the Aluminum/Magnesium dome and retail is $1299.
  6. Your headphone cable looks familiar! Did you get it from Blue Jeans? I've gotten MSA-1 headphone cables from them for all of my Focals.
  7. I switched the cable so that the right channel was connected to the left driver and vice versa and the right driver was still not producing sound.
  8. ... Aaaaand my right driver just died ☹️
  9. Thanks, justin. About how many would you say you've sold?
  10. There's a HeadAmp Gilmore Lite Mk2 on ebay with 1 day left: https://ebay.us/eabRlp Currently at $200.
  11. I follow the Utopia thread on the other site and the number of posts about driver failure are concerning me. I got a great deal on a new pair and was quite pleased, but now I'm worried that if the driver fails I'll have warranty troubles. Has anyone had their Utopias fail recently?
  12. I hear those require serious amplification.
  13. Spritzer, these posts make me feel like I should only ever buy amps from you or Justin. Edit: forgot to include ecp audio!
