Some of you guys opened the H1707 and know it from the inside out. Did you see anywhere a serial number that matches the one on the retail box barcode label? Is there any way to know if the headphone inside the box wasn't switched?
Usually, the manufacturer puts a serial number on the inside of the headband (just above the hinge) or on the driver housing (under one of the earpads). However, in case of the H1707 there is no SN on the headband and the earpads are glued to the driver housing, so I doubt that you'll find a SN there. In fact, I doubt 1MORE even puts a SN on their headphones, just on the "retail box barcode label" as you noticed.

Thanks, but it doesn't sound like you actually looked inside the headphone. There are some folks on this forum who modified it and are very familiar with it. I was hoping to hear if they found a serial number anywhere...

If you are asking for authenticity reasons, you can download 1more’s app and scan the QR code on the cable which should tell you if the set is authentic or not.

You can buy from amazon, it is faster.

You cannot change the pads, they are glued on I think and have small holes inside on one side for the ceramic tweeter. I would not do it, unless you are heavy into DIY modding.

Yeah mate, but im from spain, and here its like 150 euros... in aliexpress its gonna cost 105 euros..
Sorry to hear about pads replacement, I prefer headphones that are easy to replace that part...

It depends on what you’re after.

What kind of music do you listen to?

Do you have any other headphones or earphones that you like?

Where are you going to listen? On a train or bus, or at your desk at work, or only at home?

There are many different sound signatures available, and some people like flat and neutral headphones, and others like headphones with lots of deep sub bass. That’s why I’m asking, to help learn a little more about you.

I really don't have a special type
I don't know, let's say pop music, OST, ...

I think I prefer neutral than deep bass
But I still like bass, if both can be good at the same time
I have a random taste

I liked the M40x more than the M50x
More neutral

But now I've raised my budget for $ 200

edit: i will usually use it at home

Anyone found or using a good balanced cable with these? I sold mine, but have kinda been regretting that decision.

If you like neutral, I’ve heard good things about Beyerdynamic. I can’t be any more specific, as I don’t really have any neutral headphones. You could also look into some open-backed headphones (like from Sennheiser).

Finally. Sennheiser HD630VB has a dial on it that can tune the sound from fairly flat/neutral to v (or even L) shaped. I’ve seen them go for $200 or less. I own multiple pairs, and they are really good cans that are grossly underrated.

Best option IMO would be the mmcx adapters. Then you can use any mmcx IEM cable you want (balanced or not). Or even the TRN BT20 Bluetooth adapters.

If you’re handy with a soldering iron, the effort to make a pair is well worth it.
Mmcx connections are somewhat fragile from my experience. Not something you want to fiddle around with often. Not sure I'd want them on a headphone, where I'll be switching between single ended and balanced cables often. They make sense on earbuds and what not though. I'm sure there are a few balanced cables floating around with 2.5mm connectors, small enough to fit this headphone.

Remember you can easily adapt a headphone with a balanced cable and make it unbalanced; I standardized on balanced cables on all my headphones, keep those cables attached, and use adapters on the ends of the cable when I need to (one I travel with, the other adapter stays at home).
