My SN is 0514000119 and I have this other info on box, 2014118REV01, I think it's the manufacture day.

Interesting, I didn't notice the revision number. Mine is 20141118REV01, so produced 10 days later maybe, or did you just leave out a "1" :P ?.

Would be interesting if people posted a short comment with their revision number, if they have BT issues and if so how severe. Especially those with no issues whatsoever.

 

On a side note, I upgraded to Android Lollipop 5.02 yesterday, will report back after a few days use and experimenting with settings.

You're right. I missed one "1". Same date as yours.

Mine are 506250 and 0035000263.

Same revision so not a newer version. Perhaps you are just lucky that you haven't needed to use it in the middle of the city.

Well, even though I said the M2s are keepers, I am still in the later stages of trying out time.. Now, drop outs in the city wouldn't be a priority to me, but I am going to take a trek through the city with the M2 and see what going on.. All my trying out has been into the sound, and seeing if they are better than my MK2 and the Def Tech Symp 1.. So far, and in my humble old opinion, it has passed those two and heading down the stretch and still pulling away from the competition.. :D  

 

I am in for a treat, when I pop the wire and bang one of my amps on the M2. :D Almost all headphone go up when wired and amped!!;)

What's the difference between the different wired models (e.g. one for iphone and one for android "G" and "I").

Doesn't the android work with apple products (the volume/track change i suppose - since it's only cable that differs?)?

 

Why im asking is because local store has android version, but i only use iphone/MBP.

The android control android....the android version I have says for Samsung and it does not control my Moto X. I am not sure but I would tell you that you might be best to keep to the specific type.

There is a difference between the Android and Apple versions. Depending on which Android phone you use, the pin layout for the headphone jack can either conform to the OMTP or the AHJ or CTIA standard. The following article will explain better:

I like the wireless edition. I wanted to buy an AT M50x with audioengine d1 but for that price(I mean the M50x+D1's price together)  I'm considering this one because it's more future proof, I guess soon phones won't have 3.5 jack so a BT headphone seems logical move for me. I'm headphone only user so I use with my mobile devices and with PC too. Can I use it with PS4 via bluetooth? How long is the included USB cable? I know the audio cable is 1.4m but what's up with the USB cable length? I need to know because if I know right this headphone has a built in DAC so I can use this via USB with PC and someone mentioned that the headphone sounds decent without external DAC via USB. Does it work with any USB cable? if yes, how long is the max length? indoors I mostly would like to use this as wired headphone so if BT not working with PS4 I would like to know  if I can use a 3m USB cable. thank you for the future answers :)

I have used the M2 Wireless somewhat via wired USB mode on a Windows machine with barebones Realtek sound card (cheap built-in on-the-die stuff), have not tried a MAC OSX yet. The included cable is about a foot to a foot-and-a-half (30-45 cm) or so, too short, in other words. Thus I have used the cable from my Samsung Note II and another from Samsung Note Edge chargers, which are about 3 and 5 feet respectively (1 and 1,5 M).

 

These headphones do include a DAC in the circuitry already (otherwise USB mode would not work), as far as my limited technical understanding goes. They sound much brighter in the USB mode than via regular wire or via BT. It's just not very convenient to use if you, like me, are a right-hand dominant, since the USB jack is on the right ear cup and the wire gets annoying pretty soon if you are doing something else while using the M2. But hey, that's what BT is for - NO WIRES! 

 

Happy to report that after some 50-70 hours of break-in time the M2 Wireless sound markedly better than straight out-of-the-box. May be a placebo effect, but I consider these money well spent and usable for the next couple of years.

Just want to comment on the break in. When I first took my M2 Wireless out the box, charged them up, and put them on, IMO, they were just mediocre, and in fact, I said my Sony Mk2s might be better. However, after some break in, IMO, they were like Clark Kent at first, now they are Superman.:D

 

They are keepers for me too, and I would be really interested and like to see another brand of BT headphones be better then the M2s..IMO, the bar has been raised on BT headphones.

Just had a little scare... :D

 

As I stated earlier, bluetooth is my #1 priority. Everything else is secondary..With that said the M2 performs super in bluetooth mode. The best I have ever heard.

 

With that in mind, for the last 8 days I have had the M2s, it has been all bluetooth. 

 

Well today, I was going to go wired and from one of my headphone amps.

 

Well at the first hook up, to the amp, NO SOUND AT ALL..Okay, I checked the control panel in windows to see if had chosen my headphone amp,.. Sure enough it has the amp as default.. Still no sound. Check the cords, seemed tight to me. Still no sound.. 

 

Cold chill.. :(

 

Okay, I pull out the start up manual, and see that there is a twist on the cord that goes into the headphone.. Okay, I twist it, got sound..

 

Okay, the sound is good, but not as good as bluetooth or my Sony Mk2s, which I had hooked to the amp right before that. 

 

Another cold chill.. What is going on.. While in the process I just happened to pull the wire going to the headphone while reaching for something, the M2 go into another gear..  What is going on here. This time I take the M2s off, pull out the cord, look at it, put it back in, give it a twist than finally something locks..

 

End result, the M2s raise the SQ another level while wired and amped. These are some amazing headphones. Obviously the best I ever had, and the best sound I have heard coming through headphones.. Going to read and find out the correct way to connect that cord, don't want to putting it in, and  hoping I get it in  the right position, or even worse, break something... 

 

OMG, Chris Botti in Flac, coming through the M2s, connected to the O2+ODAC is just like he is my bicycle room playing the trumpet right in the back of me.. :D
