Thanks! I hope Pandora will be available there soon :)

You can request a quote from White Rabbit Express, Fromjapan or PriceJapan, even if they don't list your product yet:

All you need is a link to a Japanese online store that sells what you need.

So today the right side of my PF IXs fell and hit the table. The impact caused a bit of metal at the tip of the earpiece to get chipped off, leaving it jagged and rough.
 
This makes the IX unwearable for me; every time the earpiece moves in my ear the damaged area scratches me.

 

I've emailed Musica asking for help, hopefully this eventually gets resolved...

That's terrible. I hope MA can help you out!

^^ Sorry to hear that. I guess that was one advantage of the otherwise problematic removable tips on the 1601 series. Let us know if you get this fixed. Good luck!

Giant hexagon huh? Idontknowwhatiexpected. I was kinda hoping they'd deconstruct the box and have you assemble your own or something similarly crazy

you could go to a goldsmith or jeweller, they have all the tools needed for repairing or polishing.

Thanks for the advice and well wishes guys!

 

Unfortunately, since the accident was caused by me the unit won't be replaced (which I kind of expected).

Unfortunately x2, if I can't send it to Musica for repairs, there are no goldsmiths or jewellers in my area, which means I have a useless pair of Piano Fortes...

 

Hoping for the best at this point...

If you send them in, will they repair them at your expense?? I would assume it would be worth it?

Yes, that's what I'm hoping for.

Dimitri said he'd check on the fees and waiting period for me, so things are looking up!

There's a fellow member who applies a coating of nail polish to his FADs. Maybe you'd be able to smooth out the damaged area that way?

Teasers:

 

Pictures I took a moment ago:

The box, and the headphone

Built-in Headphone "Stand"

Notice the dynamic driver? The BA driver isn't that visible, but it can be felt on the right side of the cup.

The housing might be different a bit... (Not included: The cables... which fully showed it as a prototype)

Hope is coming. Open the Pandora box now...
