    Hey guys, i am planing to sell my beloved Moondrop A8 Flagship IEMs, thex are in a very good state, used them only for commuting, didn't even use them 20 times, i sell them because my wife gifted me the Audio64 UT12 and i think the beautiful A8 don't deserve to just sit there and not being used, i also give a spare original stock cable and of course some eartipps and original case and warranty. If you are interested pm me, the price for them would be 550$ inclusive shipping, I paid 730 $ for the IEM, shipping and spare cable so i think it's a good deal for an almost new A8

    I just droped them from 1.5 feet on a ceramic floor and they just opened like an egg with 2 fractures, one is big and the other is very small

    the body should be more rounded to reduce stress angles or they should cease to use a ****ing plastic.

    I managed to place the parts together and luckily the sound didnt' get affected at all.
    I tested them with mono and I A/B tested both headphones by a switch and I did not hear any difference.


    Be careful all, these just broke from a half meter drop !

    Ouch! Sorry to hear that. If they're still under warranty, you should send them back for repair/replacement. If not, you may want to reseal the casing with a little superglue to make sure that this doesn't happen again.

    Edit: It turns out that superglue is a bad idea. See the messages that follow for some more appropriate alternatives.

    Waaait! Do not use superglue! You will mess up the plastic possibly, it can eat it. Use Loctite Flexible adhesive, it's made for plastic and transparent. Find it at Walmart. You can put as much as needed, and when you close the shell it will squeeze out but you can wipe it safely. It will dry very hard and hold extremely well without harm if needed, if they ever need to be serviced or opened. Superglue will permanently seal them making them unserviceable, if needed.

    If you decide to use superglue, use a needle to apply or toothpick, and put dot amount in different places and put very little on the inside area more (if you can) and try to keep it away from the outer edge as when you press together the IEM case it will squeeze out and you will want to wipe it and that will make a mess and a disaster you won't ever be able to fix or remove. Be careful.

    E8000 glue is the best. Never superglue

    I have ordered DM7 from Linsoul. They don't have a pic of what clear looks like, so hopefully it's the same as the DM6. In addition, apparently the clear are not available two weeks ago, but I was able to place an order? Waiting game now. I think they stated will become available June 1st.

    thank you all for the suggestions

    Ouch! :cold_sweat:

    Not to detract from your crappy situation, but I thought the casing wasn't plastic? Could've swore I read somewhere that it was resin or something of that nature. In any case, you aren't the first user to get shafted, unfortunately. I remember a handful of people suffering the same fate in this thread when the big 11/11 shipping debacle was taking place. Hopefully the construction of the DMS and DM7 prove to be a little more sturdy.

    Yes resin is a fancy word for plastic :)
    And nothing is wrong with plastic, just don't make right angles with them.

    I learned something new today. Thanks for correcting my misguided advice.:smile:

    I'm sad to say that my DM7 are going back to Linsoul for exchange. As I was A/B'ing them with my DM6 and HEM4 I've noticed a 1-3db channel imbalance on multiple sources. I've tried 5 cables total including the stock cable, I've tried swapping L for R to see if the imbalance moved and the left was always quieter. I also noticed that the MMCX socket on the left ear piece was looser than the right socket, resulting in cables coming out much easier. But, Linsoul is awesome and will be exchanging them for another pair.
