I really hope these drop again or I can get a deal on them somewhere. From the Innerfidelty EQ chart, they look to be similar to the Massdrop HD 6XX however with more subbass bass and more treble. The treble actually looks more more uneven compared to HD 6XX with spikes and dips, however it should model some Harman curve response bette with that.
When is next drop likely? If at all?
Do these ever have a chance to come back to Massdrop?

Huh, that was unexpected. Mine just showed up today. I didn't know they were even shipping out yet. Not a complaint or anything, just surprised.
We've continued to coordinate with the vendor about the group's order and they've let us know that it's taken them slightly longer than expected to gather and prepare everything for individual shipment to each of you. Rest assured, we will remain in close contact with them and update the group as soon as everything is sent out.

Awaiting confirmation! We are still in contact with the vendor and just awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect the group's individual packages to ship.
Expect another update from us on 12/13 or sooner if something comes up.

Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Audio-Technica ATH-R70x Headphones and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will ship the individual orders directly to you. The current estimated ship date is 12/12.

I would have felt more confident purchasing from Massdrop at a great price, but the Newegg deal also ships from authorized dealer. So I took a a chance on it.
If I live in France, there is 21.50 dollars of shipping, but will I have to pay even more when receiving it at the post office? please help!
Pistofo
You will have to pay what you guys call TVA on the price + maybe import taxes (look it up shouldnt be to hard to find out). Btw sometimes taxes (TVA) + import taxes + shipping can add to more than the discount you receive so be carefull! Greeting from Belgium :D

Came here to post this...
Cheaper to buy in Singapore as well SGD388 in one reputable store here... need much lower..
These are $224 with free shipping on Newegg Flash for the next 3 days. (I'm assuming US only but I'm not sure)
KRZslayer
comes with a $25 newegg gift card too.
Really $275?? I bought it from local store for only $220
It is cheaper to buy this locally in Australia lol. Needed to go lower for this one.
doge

Will the Fiio E10 drive this with no issue?

@Revanna Sorry, I was talking about an AMP/DAC :). But regarding the headphone, I'm looking something over the ear, decent sound-stage and decent bass.
equasar
Oh, as for a DAC/amp combo.. depends, really - you could use your E10 as a DAC and add an Asgard 2, for example, or you could look into something like an Audio-GD NFB-11.
Both of those have quite a bit of power, and the NFB comes with probably the best DAC you can find right now (..quoting some guys I know here, but my experience with it so far has been very positive, so I won't question them on that :b) - it's a good combo, but it costs a bit extra, so if you want to keep the costs somewhat manageable, yet get good power, an Asgard 2 would be very quite nice.
Have this pair for more than a year already. Other than the trashy wire which a shorter replacement can be found at 15 bucks, everything is just great. These cans are on the same playing field with HD600s, DT880s and K701s comfortably IMO.
Meru
where did you buy 15bucks short wire from? I agree, this long cable is really annoying. I cant find it anywhere and my only option is buying the 100 bucks custom cable.
adnanhutomo
It's from China and I can't really remember the site. Sorry for that and please do a bit of google by your own.
Gotta love how the headband looks like a garden hose clamp.
Dang, no money right now. Hopefully, it will drop again.

That's two of us, lol

Hopefully these drop again some time, but probably won't in the near future..
Would the SMSL M6 DAC that I just bought on Massdrop be enough to drive these for regular volume home listening?
jwellford
Yes, the M6 should drive them
470 ohm...strange amount of draw on these cans?
Username-1928328
I think that caters more to its professional uses. Incidentally, it also favors folks with high-z output amps (mostly tubes).
MassEDU
I think he means more that it just isn't an amount that you usually see. 470 is a rather random amount.
Is the pricing in USD? Because on my page it says $274.99 + $21.75 shipping to Australia. Let's assume its in USD, when converted into Australian dollars it becomes ~$401 AUD. But here in Australia, PCCaseGear are selling these for only $369 AUD with minimal shipping fee, so how come Massdrop is still more expensive?
PlayModeOn
If its cheaper at the local stores then buy there...
PlayModeOn
Yea the pricing is in USD. Its pretty common for Japanese products to be cheaper out here.
I have theese they sound nice as long as amp/dac is good just got creative x7 big difference then my audioengine dac/amp
Trentwake
Agreed, they can play loud despite 470ohm impedance on a smartphone even, but lack space and lowend until You provide around 100mW source.
" ... we commend using a high-powered DAC and amp combination to achieve the best sound quality. " - Good job to all the people who will buy this and use it with a good setup. High fives all around! LOL
TheGoatEater
Naw man, I gotta run it off my iPhone! Heard these are an improvement over the earpods I got with my phone! /s
in Australia try pc case gear they have them for 369 dollarydoos
