Did you get charged any tax on it by Canadapost, just to rub salt in the wound

 

Yup. Nothing like that sinking feeling of having to pay money for something with a hole in it, not knowing if the contents are intact or not.

They're generally pretty good. Most of the packages I receive are in good shape. Trying to make an insurance claim with them is another matter, but that's the same no matter who the carrier.

Of course you don't have to pay customs for RMA'ing things. You need to declare it as such when you are shipping it out (keep the document as proof). RMA'd things are usually declared by sender as "$0" anyway. I would assume this is the same anywhere in the world.

Wow, pretty bad... but at least there was still something inside. I once had the US Postal service hand me 2/3rds of a cardboard box. Yes, just the cardboard, not the out-of-print books that were supposed to be in there eek.gif. The guy even kept a straight face. On the other hand, I saw a UPS guy chuck a package over our 6ft wall/fence at the old place, onto the lawn at least, before I could even get to the door...

 

After years of shipping, I'm still amazed at the rather high percentage of packages that do arrive, undamaged... rolleyes.gif

I know the feeling Grump

I once had the post arrive with my package and contents held together with packing tape, after Customs had sliced up my return package with a box cutter. I still remember this guy standing there asking me to pay taxes and duties on three complimentary magazines they'd managed to slice up along with my own Ektachromes originals. I must have looked pretty red that day mad.gif

Ouch. Did you try the usual things, like swapping the cables' left & right, trying a different amp/source etc.? Just to narrow down if it's really the drivers?

Needs to be RMA'd.

I had the exact same problem and Audeze resolved it very quickly.

Oh mate, I feel sorry for you. I know how long you've been contemplating back 'n forth between the SR-009 & the LCD-3s amongst others. Who did you buy it off in the end? Headphonic or straight from Audeze? If it's Audeze I hope they pay for shipment to 'n fro.

Yep I am annoyed especially over the Xmas break as Im going OS and will have to organise them after I come back. I thought the quality issues were well and truly ironed out by now but obviously not.

 

I bought them from ALO

Still working through that - have tried my desktop rig and then my transportable rig and its still happening as well

 

The saving grace is that to my ears and for my style of listening/music they sound fricken awesome. Im pretty impressed with Audirvana + with 24/96 FLACs MBA>-dB>RX3B but Single Ended

post #6852 of 9743

I'm guessing you didn't get a chance to talk to ALO about it?

They might do a replacement vs. you sending to Audeze for RMA repair

Definitely Audeze should be paying for the shipping costs to fix these quality control issues on brand new phones

I know exactly how you must feel about it ... too well frown.gif

Tried swapping R and L on the headphone cable to make sure it is not the headphone cable that has a breakage?
post #6854 of 9743

New headphone for Christmas and then something like this... .

 

I'm also thinking of purchasing the LCD-3's around March.

 

Some guys pointed out it would be best to buy from Audeze directly because you never know how fresh the stock is at all the retailers. Or explicitly ask for a LCD-3 with a recent manufacturing date when purchasing them from a dealer.

 

I think I'll buy them at HeadRoom.

It's neat that you can see the 'grace' in this. I hope it get's resolved to your satisfaction and ASAP!
