I'm confused whether to send this back or keep it, please provide some advice for me.
Doesn't matter; if it's rev 3, then just tell the customer service that you have a rev 3 unit and need it replaced.
Also take a photo without flash, and with natural lighting, the flash makes rev2s look like rev3s and rev3s like rev2s.

I like to exaggerate sometimes, but honestly not here. Nothing dynamic I've auditioned or owned (from m50s to he300s, hd800s, q701s, d5ks, etc etc list goes on) has the degree of balance, air, and enjoyment that these little guys are able to crank out.
Sure they don't have the resolving power or extension or instrument separation of larger cans, but they more than make up for it with a sweet sweet timbre and good "density" in the sound, the mids are phenomenal. Treble is just the right level and colouration to be very detailed yet utterly nonfatiguing, and bass is really satisfying. Overall an extremely integrative sonic character.
Crazy, I know. These really ripple and tear the fabric of audiophile reality.
