has anyone received their headphones yet, because for me the status shows placing order with vendor, and its been over a month since the drop ended and i haven't seen any updates lately, just wondering if i'm the only one?

Oh yea I must have missed that email when I was looking through my emails, but I found it thanks for the info I'll probably end up canceling the order.
Jeshua
Yes I have received it.
Whats the impedance? Never mind. 32 ohm
Anyone know how long the cable is?
TacticalDan
i think its like 3 m
Can anyone with both K181DJ and K182 on hand comment on whether it looks like the latter's pads would fit on the former? Because I've got a couple pairs of 181s already and I'd prefer them with circumaural pads, so if I can maybe order some as replacement parts from AKG service...
I was worried about shipping costs to Italy, indeed. Anyway I did make a check against amazon and other sites overall costs and found Massdrop cheaper, on this case. So I decided to join the drop. It is my first time on Massdrop and I am curious to see how this transaction will end.
Anyway, I think the shipment costs are a little to high on Massdrop, generally speaking since I checked them other times and decided not to go. They should do something about this.

You shouldn't forget of the import fees and some others as well. Those can be expensive.

Adding to VenoXj1's comment, don't forget about the long wait as well.
Do not buy from massdrop! The customs fee is not worth it. You think you're getting a deal but then your postal service will charge you more than the products face value. Don't buy! Buyer beware. Total rip off.

your parents have never recovered, you no neck bug eyed troll.
weird, I also forgot to mention, that one time I ordered some headphones to Barcelona, Spain, and same, no problem at all.
the akg k181 dj ue had a coiled cable this one does not. on paper i think the K181 is the one to get.

The cord is detachable so if you want a coiled cable just buy a Mini XLR cable coiled. The main reason I bought these because it's detachable.

the K181 dj is detachable as well
How much is the shipping cost to the UK ?
In my opinion these are better sounding than the M50X, This one is a little bit more bass focussed.

My experience was that the bass is "strong all the way down" rather than "rolled off like most 'neutral' headphones".
How are these for noise isolation -- eg on a plane? (and versus noise cancelling headphones)

Mike_WI clearly asked about K182, not M50x by any stretch. Please read properly next time.
He wants to know how well it independently isolates one from the environment, in addition to how well it fares versus ANC. Like you pointed out: Key: "and versus noise cancelling headphones"
I don't think it will compete with a good ANC set. But no one is answering his question yet on how well K182 isolates on its own, though. I sure haven't heard K182... yet.

My apologies, I've come under the impression that people knew that the K182 are comparable to the M50X - both are near the similar price range for MSRP; also the performance are quite similar. In my opinion, the K182 has better bass than the M50X - it's an impressive headset worth it for the price. In terms of noise cancellation (via no sound is obviously poor), for noise cancellation in a plane it will not cancel out the plane cabin noise. You're better off with an IEM for example Shure SE215 for cancelling out cabin noise; if that is you cannot afford the Bose QC35 which in my opinion has the best ANC available at the moment.
More specs that aren't listed on the description but should be:

If i am learning to dj are there a better headset to wear? I wish they sold discount controllers by reloop on massdrop. Or denon.

If you are starting out these would be fine. But specifically for DJing, I would recommend the K181 DJ UEs since the bass boost and mono-stereo switches do help in live settings. The on-ear design also allows you to easily slip them on and off. I'm personally not a DJ but I've used the K181s for live sound before. K181s pop up around here for around 55 USD sometimes.
The K182s trade the extra features such as bass boost for an over-ear design which would be much more comfortable than the K181s during long listening sessions if that is what you like. I assume that the K182 also has the insane clamping force of the K181 because they share the same headband, so the over-ear cups would come in handy there.
any idea of how these compare to the m40x?
Any idea on shipping price?

Just hit join drop, before you actually commit it shows shippinh cost
Can the headphone directly plug into mobile phones and laptops, i.e. is the cable compatible with a 3.5 mm jack? I watched the review video and thought I heard 3.6 mm instead.

Thank you, DeweyDecibel!
MDnewbie
Yes. Works with phones
I have these and they are outstanding for mobile sources. Easy to drive, tight and extended bass, open soundstage and well controlled highs. A very fun headphone for rock and metal!
It is made of plastic (even the mini XLR socket). Not recommend to those who have large head.

I agree that it seems not to be broken easily. To be more specific, K182 is an over-ear size headphone and even large-head can wear it. What annoys me is the clamping force. As it would be acted around the ears and the pressure make me feel uncomfortable.

I didn't like it at first either, but after stretching them over a box and wearing them regularly I kind of got used to them.
