Have they released any demo units? Hard to buy without hearing it, let alone no one else hearing it

Mass drop sells garbage. Bought from them and the warranty never honored. It's basically a lot of kick starter BS it seems. My item was some generic Chineese junk that like 3 no name companies released at once. It was cheaper on Amazon than mass drop as well

I have been thinking of purchase one or more headphones on MassDrop. What sort of warranty problems did you experience?

PS i am waiting for them to rerelease Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX Headphones or a Fostex headphone.

I bought AKG K7XX Red Edition headphonse from Massdrop a couple years ago. One side had stopped working after 20 months and I emailed Massdrop as AKG had 2 year warranty on its compatible products. Massdrop emailed me with a free return shipping label and I got a replacement headphones 3 days later. I was a very happy customer.

This drop is selling fast. But note it doesn't ship until the end of Feb 2018! I was hoping for December when my HD6XX will arrive!
