    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    Hey, everything we do is based on requests, so if we have a ton of folks coming back to us, after ~40,000 hrs of listening (roughly the battery lifetime), and want replacement batteries, we'll create a solution. Battery replacement for a small fee, designating an authorized repair center, or...

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    @Warder45 Yes, Panda will be available for sale on Drop later this summer. Not explicitly, we don't have any plans or partners in the DC area. They'll be at Canjam NYC and others TBD. Overall, I wouldn't be worried about the headband point. ~20% of those with units have commented on this...

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    Coming from an M50, Panda's a whole new world. Would recommend the upgrade if you can afford.

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    Panda is being manufactured in Taiwan, but sadly no, we can't fulfill directly from the factory. Appreciate your interest in Panda!

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    Thanks for your response! You hit on some fun topics that I don't often get to discuss with the community. It's the standard approach for product managers, to think real hard and guess what the community wants. People don't know what they want until you show them right? Unfortunately for...

    DROP + THX Panda Announcement

    @Gabsriel Earpads are designed to be user-replaceable and various earpad options will be available in the future. @AlwaysForward While Panda was tuned without the use of DSP, the chipset supports DSP, it's just disabled. If there's enough interest in DSP as a feature, we could publish a...

    Massdrop x Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Amp (CTH) - Dropping Monday

    Hey there, blinq purchases inventory from "jobbers", people/companies that buy from inventory liquidators and electronic repair centers, generally by weight. I dont know if that's all they do, but we've seen our products show up a few times over the last few years. We're not involved with the...

    Massdrop x Airist Audio R-2R DAC: A Discrete Resistor Ladder DAC For $350

    Yea believe me man, I would have preferred to post this on Monday, it just takes time to gather this information, really understand what's being said, understand how that's being understood by the broader community, and how it can be presented in a public place. These things take time to...

    Massdrop x Airist Audio R-2R DAC: A Discrete Resistor Ladder DAC For $350

    Thanks man, appreciate your response. Far as the idea of a Massdrop x Sosolar DAC goes, we're open to talking about it, I suggested that it would be better to work together in my communication to sosolar. It could be cool if he's got a balanced version ready to go with great sound. The things...

    Massdrop x Airist Audio R-2R DAC: A Discrete Resistor Ladder DAC For $350

    Hey Friends, I was hoping to avoid making another post on this topic, but given sosolar’s most recent posts, I feel it’s necessary to summarize and clarify the statements and claims made. Sosolar surfaced in the Massdrop RDAC discussion at the beginning of the week, claiming the RDAC was a...

    The Elex pads are black and the Clear pads are silver. Other than the color, they are exactly the same.

    Massdrop x Focal Elex Review & Measurements

    Utopia pads fit, they don't increase the bass. Utopia pads on the Elex mostly increase the upper midrange,

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    The 4XX ships with Focus A pads, despite our pictures being taken with regular Focus pads. The QC units on my desk are Focus A pads.

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    Yea, hopefully they go out before schedule. We got our QC units yesterday (we have our partners send us some units off the production line as soon as they're ready) and they look great so everything is going according to plan.

    HiFiMan HE4XX

    Hey friends, just for clarification, the 4XX does not ship with a case. I suspect Mshenay got this pair as one of the loaners that's floating around, and they may have come to him with a case, but I can assure you, these do not come with a case by default.

    The Official Sony MDR-Z1R Flagship Headphone Thread (Live From IFA 2016)

      For sure, I assume it'll be at Canjam, one of the few things I'll make a point of listening to.

    The Official Sony MDR-Z1R Flagship Headphone Thread (Live From IFA 2016)

    Saw the thread, got excited. Saw the description, got more excited. Saw the price, got waaay less excited.    I won't have an opinion until I hear them and see the measurements, but ~$2000 is a lot to live up to.

    World First! Massdrop x HiFIMAN Collaboration Announcement

    Yup fair point, but it's important to note the K553 was not a collaboration (Denoted by the "Massdrop x Company" branding). We don't do a great job surfacing this information so I can understand the confusion.

    World First! Massdrop x HiFIMAN Collaboration Announcement

      Yup, these are a Massdrop Collaboration and will remain exclusive to our platform. We're working on a launch schedule for our collaborations so everyone has a better idea of when what products will be available.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

      Nope, we don't do satisfaction based returns or post-drop cancelations unless there are deeply extenuating circumstances (vendor is multiple weeks late on delivery, shipping barge sinks, etc).
