    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.
    Fail.
