    Great advice. I also have bubble wrap markings on mine but I absolutely couldn't care less. The coating is prone to scratches anyways. The sound is sublime, I won't wait another couple of months due to some coating markings :wink:

    I asked them how they intend to handle it. My thought would be the credit to another item in their store with directions for us to fix ourselves would be easiest/best. If I do keep, I intend to get a super soft buffing wheel for my Dremel and some soft (non-abrasive) polish for wood and see if I can simply buff out the marks.

    It'll be interesting to hear how the PHs compare to my D2000s. Do they actually have the same drivers? Is it all about them woods?
    My PH-pair has finally arrived to my country (Finland), should be here next week - unless DHL does something crazy.

    Yes! And drums too. I love how realistic drums and cymbals sound.

    That would be a pretty good outcome. Definitely better than rushing to send the PH back and having to wait months for a replacement.
    Also we don't really know if the bubble marks might work their way out on their own over time.
    I have the bubble markings on one of my cups. I'm a little disappointed by it, and yes for $450 we shouldn't have to deal with it....but at the end of the day it's very likely that I won't care enough to go through all the ******** of demanding a return, sending it in, waiting for a return, etc....all for a few marks that I can barely see.

    Remind me again, without mass drop, who would sell Fostex for $450 ?

    Isn't E-mu also collaborative with maassdrop ?

    As far as I know E-MU is just a branch of Creative. Massdrop had nothing to do with the creation of the Teaks. Also, people have been able to get the Teaks for the Massdrop price by emailing Chan directly.

    Got my pair finally! Thankfully, no bubble wrap marks, but I've got some light scratching on the cups... Unfortunate, but hey, I'll take it. Now time to give them a listen [​IMG]

    Serial #00646, btw. No issues with fitting my ears in the pads :)
    Looots of mid-bass. Waiting for some burn in for the sub to really start kicking in, but man, these are thumpin!

    #01228 here and no cosmetic issues to report - I couldn't care less anyway - so probably early batch? Only starting to listening now and I absolutely love those. Coming from a Bitfrost and Sony PHA-2 as amp (waiting for the Lyr2 to come)... They sound somehow better than my D5000. Tighter, more present low end. Early judgment though. I'm going to have fun with these :wink:

    I posted my thoughts earlier, but they are better than the D2000's in EVERY way imaginable right out the box... the Purplehearts are a nice upgrade from a D2000, my modded D2000's will be going to a co-worker once I get them put back together.

    I don't think the drivers are exactly the same.
