So, I've spent a good amount of time with the R10Ps, and I still like them. I actually like them a lot. I guess the only flaw might be treble, in that it is a bit subdued. That is fine with me though. Bass, soundstage, imaging, layering are all very good. I absolutely love the BlueMini. These are really great Bluetooth headphones, and being wireless is amazing.

If anybody is on the fence about the R10P, and wants to have bluetooth functionality, I'd suggest picking up the current version of the R10P, before all of them get updated with the new headband. The new headband might be more comfortable, assuming it is just like the Susvara headband. However, I don't have a problem with the current headband. The downside of the new headband is no Bluetooth. I feel like the bluetooth option really makes the R10P very appealing. I know the earcups have divided a lot of people, but these headphones are definitely underrated.

I'm going to keep them and use them when working. That wireless is just so convenient and sounds good too. :L3000:

Add a silver cable to bring out the highs and the sound is just about perfect. I have the Moon Audio Silver Dragon and couldn't ask for a better sounding closed headphone.

So, I spoke to hifiman. Its a cosmetic change, nothing has changed about the cups, or the tuning, or anything sound related. Here is a photo from @HeadAmpTeam


Yep that’s the info we received as well and thank you for the re-post! Hopefully we will have more information on the new finish soon

Well it will be worthwhile to ask if the new headband assembly will still support BlueMini functionality, but for those who don’t want to wait for clarification we do have one HE R10P still available in the original hardware!

The OG has a single-entry 3.5mm TRRS.

The new one has dual 3.5mm.

Do those of you who like the R10P agree with the reviews that the R10P is very close behind in technical ability to the Susvara but with better base and impact and a bit sweeter sounding?

Yes, it has very good technical abilities and some of the best bass I've heard on any headphone. It's also warmer sounding than the Susvara's.
