    The Atom lacks the error fix technology on the 789

    Goodness. I really like my THX 789, but didnt think it would create this type of hype.

    I like mine too, but damn. If "Drop" could get their act together on these they could make a mint.

    I agree on "Drop"

    I like Massdrop more <3

    In reality, the majority are not experiencing errors. Otherwise The Atom wouldn't be praised as much and directly compare to the Thx 789.
    You buy an Atom for the single ended output. It's one of the best in it class, maybe more powerful than the THX789. You buy the Thx 789 for the XLR out as it is one of the best of its kind. If you are a single ended user only, it isn't wrong to go with The Atom. You still are getting one of the best headphones available.

    Have anyone try to pair with Chord Qutest and beyer T1 2nd?Does it fit?

    I cant imagine anyone liking "drop" more than "massdrop". It is idiotic to change the name. Unless they have a valid reason.

    But it does make sense though. How can they call themselves Massdrop if it only drop a few Thx 789s at a time . Or perhaps they should call themselves Dewdrops.

    It is not more powerful than the THX 789.

    The fact I'm getting 789 is because of it's XLR output... If I don't have my SE setup already, I'd get a Lyr3 for that..

    Who ever came up with that "catchy" name should be demoted, including the CEO. It's way too Damn generic!

    Me every morning checking my email: "Dafuq is 'Drop'!?... Oh yeah, stupid Massdrop name change."

    Seriously, the most forgettable name ever. Might as well go all the way in that direction and just call it 'Store.' So dumb even their own in-house products still say 'Massdrop' on them. lol
