The Oppo PM-3 pads a are not changeable like the PM-1/2. Oppo said you could get warranty work on them if needed. Given the shape of the cups I'm not sure what other brand ear pads would fit

I really can't stand when companies make headphones at the price points, and you have to send them back to have pads replaced that just crazy.

Good question. Didn't try and shipped them off to Cali this afternoon. Had to put up the person in front of me whining about trivial crap to the USPS clerk... Ugh!

That is the worst thing ever when your at a store and all you want to do is get your stuff and get out. But the person in front of you wants to have a conversation with the cashier.

Agree, however they did say that they'd consider making replacement pads available if demand is high enough. I'd say they should just offer them now!

Yes, the clerks were just nodding and saying "breathe, breathe...". I was standing there thinking - man, I just got laid off but I'm no way I'm unloading on the USPS clerk so just shut your pie hole and move on!

Does that make me evil_smiley.gif ?

That makes you normal the person that was in front of you is the one that is crazy. Were you able to file for unemployment I hope.

Not yet. Luckily I'm paid through end of June and will get some compensation from the company afterwards based on my years with the company.

Funnily enough, the company's cost cutting measures were enacted right when the CEO was being investigated for improperly handling company finances. Coincidence?

Just to rub it in, the SoundMagic HP200 I purchased from MassDrop were delivered to my old workplace yesterday - couldn't catch UPS in time. Hopefully one of the skeleton crew shutting down the site will forward then on to me...

Wow it's sounds like how the government operates.

Ok, I'm starting to sound like the crazy lady in front of me today eek.gif

Except, she was talking like she was actually taken by a Nigerian internet scammer or something. I mean, that actually happens???

So when're you posting that EL-8 review @acain?

And do the closed version have wood veneer? If so, how does it look in person? I didn't really like the look on the open version in Jude's video - would've preferred plain black.

Audeze said they'd consider black down the line. The XC had multiple choices when they were first released but Audeze settled on the most popular one in the end. The open and closed version use the same veneer, which I'm not a fan of.
