Good point Matt.
Hope every one on the east coast is safe.
We waiting for it I live in the zone A mandatory for evacuation but I'm staying home as some others. It rains and very very windy. We have electricity since our community has our own power plant so until something breaks it we are fine
Good luck and may you and your family be safe.
First of all, welcome to headfi!! There are a few issues here.
1. You may have a revision 3 driver. If that is the case, then you can mail the hp back and they will repair it and cover the cost of shipping, just save your receipt. Just pull off the earpad and check the color. White=good Sandy Brown=bad
2. Hifiman has been good about standing behind their products. Just email them and I'm certain they will take care of you regardless of the issue.
They have an open announcement thread here that you can use.
I removed the earpad and theres a white (almost transparent) plastic, so I think it's Ok.
Windy here and I scared to have HP on...hooked directly to amp, any short-circuit may cause 120 volts applied directly to my head
right now I am good boy only doing actual work
This is why you buy the battery operated portable rig!!
Let's not get carried away all the r's now. I talked to Drew at Moon Audio at the end of the week. He has already sent back all the stock that was recalled. Anything that you get from them will be the good ones.
Thanks everyone for wishing to be safe. I hope for the best
