hey i just sold a spare set of 8040s that my work had decided to sell off BUT i forgot to put the right ones in (have 8 sets) one was made in 08 the other was made in 10 would this be an issue because buyer asked me and be honest i would have no idea i have an odd set of 8240s (one 07 one 08) and asides from aesthetic differences due to manufacture defects they seem to work the same. would this be an issue or just an OCD thing

Hi Essi,

Technically (audio quality or tone) there is no difference between different serial/manufacturing dates because our specifications and productions tolerances have been the same since the introduction of the 8040 model in 2004. There is no problem with using two units from different year or even decade. :)
