got the 388B: holy crap Koss! what did we ever do to you to deserve this garbage :'( veiled af and muddy bass, no clarity and mids suck too I'll see if burn-in does something but I suspect it wont :(
Hey, that is my photo on the main page of the 1001, from about 3 years ago!: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/first-look-review-blue-ever-blue-beb-878-1001.763443/
I did some light reviews and photography (not my best work) of the Blue Ever Blue products a while back. Here is the 328RM one I did as well: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/blue-ever-blue-beb-328rm-review.765478/
if il order il be like "pls no earbuds pls no earbuds" and earbuds i shell receive
What I noticed was the 110% chances listed, hmmm?
I got the Blue Ever Blue 328R and they don't fit in my ears. Very disappointed. Will refrain from joining drops like this in the future.
i got a Blue Ever Blue 878
Ordered two pairs - I think I got 2x 833s. I would put the 833 as slightly above the stock Samsung S5 headphone for SQ, and below the Samsung S9 stock headphones for SQ. So, they are worth $20 max for listening to audio.
The build quality is poor ($5). After using around a dozen times I can already hear crackle in the wire/connector. I don't expect them to last long. The mic is pure crap if you have any background noise.
Downrate, NOT worth it.
So I ended up getting the 878's, and while they sound fine, the build quality is just disgusting, like the right earbud specifically makes this weird clicking noise anytime I touch it, and it's soo loud when it's in your ear. No it's not the tip I'm using, and no it's not my ear.
These are absolutely terrible (328R). I received two of them and the earphones I received for free with my phone are easily better quality. I figured that for $30 the base model would at least be decent but no such luck. Also they were shipped in two separate packages so I had to pay the handling fee twice (I get that I have to pay the VAT as I'm in the UK but I'm pretty sure that if they're in the same package we only have to pay the handling fee of £8 once). Wish I'd just not paid that at all and had them sent back.
Total cost of two worthless pairs of earphones: £67.27 Experiencing how terrible an idea these Blue Boxes are: priceless.
Nice, got a set of 2000ex. I was going to give this drop as a present but might have to keep these. I currently have an old set of Etymotic ER4p. Any idea how the 2000ex compare?
Waiting for brainwavz again xD
Complimentary earbuds given on airlines are better than the 328R. Avoid this one.
Ok so to all potential buyers here I have to give a word of warning. I lucked out and got the best possible option the last time the drop was available. Were the headphones I received worth the 20 bucks? Hell yeah. Were they worth the market price? Hell no. Honestly I was blown away by how poor the "high end" headphones were. If you want to buy a nice pair of headphones, just save up and buy a legitimate pair. Even if you luck out and "win" this drop, you can still do much better.
Really hoping to luck out on this one... first drop..
If anyone is interested in buying / trading for a new pair of 2000ex - I have a duplicate.

Can u want to sell it
I just received my blue box and it contained the 328R's. These aren't the worst earbuds I've ever used but I do prefer IEM's. Bass response initially isn't very good. Working with an EQ I was able to get semi-decent performance out of the earbuds. These actually aren't that uncomfortable in the ears. The build quality seems fine. No rattling or such. The cable could use being maybe a foot longer though. I am not disappointed in the drop as I knew going in what the odds were. I will say these are not that great at a $35 US price point. I have some $20 dollar earbuds that sound about the same.

Just got my 328Rs as well, and I have to agree. Bass response is pretty bad. I bought a ~$25 pair of Skullcandy earbuds a year or so ago that have outperformed all of the bluebox results I've tried. IMO the gamble just isn't worth it, you're better off buying a single product with a heavy groupbuy discount 'cause you have a way better idea what you're getting.
these buds are garbage lmao cant believe i did this no more blue boxes for me...
This bullshit is on the back of the 328Rs, verbatim:
"Experience Real-Time 3-Dimensional Real Time Sound with Blue Ever Blue Earphones. Hear sounds in your music that you have never heard before!"
boolean-julien
"Clinically tested & proven: 14.32% reduction in psychological stress"
Mine is 0.070 kg
Well FeelsBadMan, 2 entries and both yield 328R. Also, I entered in the NuForce HEM IEM and got the lowest tier (Dynamic). Quite an interesting week. Best of luck to you guys out there. My 2 328's were shipped at 0.3 lbs or 0.4 kgs.

Got two 328Rs as well :( Purchased before reading the comments here. Thoroughly disappointed in MassDrop for either not QAing these, or willfully selling shit. Not sure which is worse.
Got the 328R's, didnt know that 20$ from a "audiophile" section of this website could offer a downgrade to apple earbuds. How bad can you make earbuds that are worse than those you get free? First purchase, possibly the last from Massdrop (don't ripoff customers).

I am fairly sure just by its reviews that the Monoprice earbuds that are about $5 would be a huge upgrade from these.

In all honesty Massdrop has been awesome for all other purchases I've made. This is just a bad raffle.
does anyone know how we actually find out if we one the bonus prizes?
Haha, 328R's at a 35$ valuation? BS. I vaguely remember being this uncomfortable with the freebie earbuds that came with your Ipod 10 years ago, plus the sound is horrid, but that doesn't really matter it could have the best sound in the world and you still couldn't wear them. Severely disappointed. If they bring this back I strongly suggest not wasting your money on it.
dang, i feel like i won the lottery.
got a pair of 1200ex. these do not dissapoint!
i'm very satisfied with my set.

Same here. I got the 1200ex in the mail. Never have I been so lucky to win good prizes.
Never heard this brand before... Why is it even up here?

looks like it's made by Koss
Aye 3rd set I've gotten, two 833 and a 328R... sound-wise the 833s are passable for the price, but 328R are on par with $2 earpods. Quality feels low on all of them; cups are cut unevenly/all plastic (except for the aluminum can on the 833) rubber discoloured/uneven looks like it stuck to the mold on the 833s. 328R are one-size-fits-enough, and I wouldn't trust them to stay in my ears. Avoid this drop.
Got the 878 from the drop as a nice surprise. They are very bass heavy. Not quite as heavy as beats, and not a washed out either. Would not be my first choice of headphones. If this drop does come back i would not bother. Considering these are the second best option i could have got, they leave me wanting more than just a set of base head buds. Treble and mids are not bad, just way to much base even for my taste.
wtf? It's literally gone I've just got a missing package now
I'll second anyone who says not to go with this drop
