Why would there be a silver and black pad on amazon, but 2 blacks from buyauthorized?
He's not saying he "opened" anything up, he just simply took off the earpad to take a visual look at the driver.
After all, Ultrasone specifically made those pads to be easily removed and replaced if needed. They even come with two colors of pads, so the user can "experiment" on which pad visually looks better. All of which involves taking the earpad off, and getting a glimpse of the driver. As long as no tools were used...
It's a very well written email. But it's up to you if you find it okay with sending an unhonest letter.
Hmm... mine came with two pairs of black pads.
So did mine. We both got ours from BuyAuthorized on eBay. Leander bought his from Amazon. Thus he has a silver and a black pair.
