I did that initially. I contacted them and they forwarded my message to my local reseller lol.

on topic:

After a week or more of not listening to these headphones, I plugged them in to MBA and they once again blew my mind! biggrin.gif

MBA's DAC certainly does like them and vice versa. smily_headphones1.gif

these drivers are made of carbon nanotubes, they're harder than diamonds so I don't think sound vibrations will have any effect on the material here

 

it's mostly a psychological effect

Yes, that can be true. Let's say then it appeared to me that their sound drastically changed with some use, in a way I didn't experienced with other cans I owned that underwent the same treatment. Whatever the reason may be! (psycological or actual, physical adjustment)

If carbon nanotubes are harder than diamonds, how can they move?

It gets mixed results, my friends said it is muddy but I think they are fine. A bit boomy but that's what they were aimed for, I believe. They sound great though and isolation is better than I expected

Only thing that might be an issue is that they become uncomfortable after a while but it's common with on ears.

Hard to not like these.

They have noticeably less bass than XB500, but SQ is better.

I tend to EQ down the bass (the upper midbass mainly while boosting the certain mid and high frequencies) on XB500 and boost the bass (accomponied by 2k boost) on S500s.
