Yes, I absolutely understand.
Anyone who has bought it recently should just return it without hesitation.
The risk is too great.
Apart from that, the question is whether something can happen when it is in use?
And to be honest, if Topping refuses to replace headphones from customers who can prove that they were destroyed by the product, why should I have regrets if I bought one recently?
Those who have ordered from Amazon can still return them after the return period or exchange them.
Of course, it would be a bit expensive for Topping to have to replace every second pair of headphones.
If every second customer was affected.
That would probably not be possible for financial reasons.
Nevertheless, the whole thing is annoying.
There were a few problems with the E30 in the beginning and now the L30.
And @Mazeframe has also uncovered some things where you have to ask yourself as a developer that this was not right.
With a simple fuse, this wouldn’t be a big issue. In China, they cost ridiculous amounts in cents.
But let’s take a look at Schiit, Jds Labs, who offer a 99$ amplifier. There is also no fuse installed and it works strangely enough.
As I said, at the moment we can only recommend to wait until Topping has something to say and not to use the L30 for safety reasons.
