Another great update from Val and thanks for all your hard work. However, since the early M-100 was bundled with the Faders already, does it mean they people can get yet ANOTHER pair of Faders? Please make sure you let your support aware of this, as I emailed them about the VERZA upgrade discount and they had no idea (and I am still waiting for my refund).
I somewhat agree with this.
The people who want the XL pads will have to pay $20 for the Faders. This is a completely reasonable offer as earpads tend to go for around that price, or much more (I believe the K 702 Anniversary Edition pads are around an insanely high [in my opinion] $70 or something like that). Paying $20 for a pair of Faders AND getting XL pads "free" with it would be a loss for V-MODA, I think. Couple that with the research and development and they definitely are at a loss. LP/LP2 earpads are $15 by themselves, so paying $20 for a $20 MSRP product and getting $15+ earpads is more than generous of V-MODA to offer.
That being said, VTF-100 owners already do have the Faders. I can kind of see the point you're trying to make, "what am I going to do with 2 Faders?", but I'm with Val on this one for promoting hearing protection. Personally I don't mind paying the $20 for a pair of Faders [and "free" XL earpads]; heck, my dad uses the ones I have from the VTF-100 order, so I would actually get to use a pair for myself. XD
