Massdrop x Focal Elex Headphones.
$1 cheaper than the Refurbished deal but these are covered under warranty.
*Update: Changed deal from refurbished b-stock to brand new.

Don't Elex have a bad reputation of driver failure etc?
While I'm sure ACL would (to a degree) protect us, it seems nuts to buy something prone to failure, which may already have been returned to them, that they explicitly state doesn't have any kind of warranty.
Yes. It's quite common. Not sure if you can get repair support locally even if you wanted to pay.
IMHO, too risky.
Elex = Elear + Clear pads. We tend to get good Elear deals in Australia, but the headphone may have been discontinued.
Considering Elear deals were $599 I guess $156 for the pads are not worth it.
Though with Elear out of stock in Australia (A2A only has Elegia and Clear) and discontinued, they won't be restocked anyway?
There were $499 deals, but yeah, if you really want the Focal house sound and dynamics, this is probably it until a replacement model arrives.
That's very bad. A lot of outlets sell B stock. It's still covered by warranty, albeit a shorter one. Why would anyone spend nearly $800 for a product that has no warranty?
Concur. No warranty is a bit shoddy.
I owned the elear for 12 months and experienced two unexpected driver failures, this was with minimal use and good care. Luckily I received a refund under warranty. I do not recommend buying these based on my experience
I do really like my Elears, but buying refurbs from Drop explicitly without warranty? No fam.
Apple pricing but no warranty.
