    I bought also from amazon, everything was and still is perfect. Just unlucky set you got..

    It can happen to any headphone, I had to return my first Beyer Dynamic T1.2 with a dead left driver and Denon MM440 with channel imbalance. Luckily my Meze's were just perfect

    So, I got the replacement pair this morning. Flawless F&F, and surprising light weight. Sound is really nice...very fun and non fatiguing. I will say that they are close to my M1060 in how they sound except for sound-stage and tightness/roll off of bass. The 99C's have a ripple in the lows that the M1060's don't have. The M1060's maintain a tighter bass. But they both have a slight darkness to them. Compared to my HE-400i's, they have a sound signature more to my liking because of the better bass.

    Listen to Darkside's - "Paper Trails" for the bass rippling/smudging....whatever you call it.

    So going through this thread I take it they need a decent break-in. Also I see that some have replaced pads......Which pads are people having luck with controlling the bass, and are pads like the Brainwavz Sheepskin a direct replacement?

    Anyhow, over all they are really nice and I am looking forward to getting more time on them.

    For anyone who has the balanced cable from Meze, how much difference does it make compared to the stock SE cable?
    I have read the review, it looks like it improved it quite a bit, but I wanna hear more opinion about this.
    It will be paired with the Fiio X7 II or the Hiby R6.

    Hey I'm thinking of getting some pads since I've heard the new ones really increase the bass and decrease the mids. What pads would you recommend that are most similar to the old pads while taming the bass and increasing mids and trebles.

    I have the same question.

    I have the Silver one.
    In my oppinion the bass seems thighter and more controlled. additionally there is a little more extension on both ends and i hear more air in the stage.
    Is it worth the price? Consider the following:

    +great build quality and ergonomics
    +additional adapter (might be handy also with other 2,5 trrs cables)
    +better sound (no big jump in Quality)
    +possible to use balanced (daps often perform better on balanced)

    If i had to make the decission again i would buy the cable again.

    ...and a more practical length (1.5m) and above all - microphonics issues (be gone!), for me.

    PS: In terms of construction, build and practicality of the Meze Silver / Copper, I'm all for it. To clarify, for me personally, I am not convinced cable (any cable) can change sound and if it does I can't say in my listening experience I hear a difference. I must say, I have never had the chance to try any high-end cables. I have Meze Silver / stock cable.

    OK, after listening to these straight since last Friday, I feel the bass is going to drive me nuts. Best way to explain it, is being at a live show and walking into the bathroom. The way the bass, drums end up being muffled. Or like holding a pillow against your ear, or having a slight head cold. After reading through these threads, it seems the original pads did not have this issue, or it wasn't so bad.

    Try getting the MSR7 pads as they decrease bass and increase mids
  11. dwinnert
    Yeah they seem to be what peeps are pointing to. Thanks!
  12. sauronmordor756
    So I’m thinking of getting these. What are they like with the new pads, what cans are you coming from and can you update us when you get the MSR7 pads?
  13. dwinnert
    My HP's are in my sig. And adding to my post above....These are great sounding cans, and while I like to run bit-perfect without any EQ/DSP, they do respond well to some EQ to tame the bass a bit. But between these and my M1060's....I like those better.

    I still have the original pads up for grabs as I prefer the Sheepskin Brainwavz
  15. Dragonmilenario
    I really want to grab it but I actually live in Poland.
