Always, Mass Drop offers only unpopular products and jurks. I just want to buy headphones like lcd 4 for $ 1000.

I have no doubt MassDrop would love to offer more brands. Audeze is a unique company, and how they distribute their cans means it wouldn't be easy. I would be surprised of they talked to them about it and would probably try again. I'm not sure what "jurks" are, but I hardly think the HD6XX is unpopular, with several thousand sold. The tech and wood going into the LCD-4 means it might cost them 2 thousand to just manufacture it and cover the years of R&D that went into just making it. You'll never see that wood version of it below $3000 used. I want great expensive stuff cheap too but you have to be realistic here.
are you implying LCD-4's sound better than a 150 dollar headphone? because you'd be right! But lcd-4s don't sound 4 digits good anyways
Are these manufactured in China?

HiFiMan products from my experience are a disgrace. Mine have ALL fell apart or sound had become distorted in less than 1-6 months. All thru Amazon uK.
re-400 left ear broke apart within 6 months he-400s sound became distorted at 60% above volume in 3 weeks he-400s bought again as loved the sound when it worked... and I'm SURE they gave me the exact same pair back as the volume still became distorted at 60% volume and above. I know it wasn't my gear as I tried with many sources and my friend didn't have the same issues with his.

Yeah they got that history, and I believe it, but I can say that the 4XX does not look or feel cheap. I've had mine for nearly 6 months and I use it regularly--it's not falling apart and it sounds fine... maybe because Massdrop was involved?
One MOAR drop pls
bump!
Received the 450 Pro today, and while it will take me a few good days to form an opinion on sound (pretty good) and comfort, I can comment that the "closed design" is a complete joke. This is by far the most open closed headphone I've ever owned.
I just received my GMP 400 and after some songs I can tell you that these headphones sound pretty good. I like them more than my HD6XX but I personally don't like my HD6XX.
Please please bring these back!
Mic on these or no?
Zlatan
No. These are just headphones. If you want a built in mic you need to be looking for a headset.
BUMP, No love for the GMPs?
These look a lot like the 29 year old NOS Sennheisers I got the other day (replaced pads/cable). Speaking of which, and I know it's unrelated to this drop, that's when Sennheiser still made everything in Germany and despite being so old, they sound incredible for a closed set (Senn hd250s).
So I hear these are brighter than not? How is the midrange relative to bass and highs?
GMP 400 vs Philips Fidelio X2?  
Sinori
Detatchable cable and all metal vs what looks to be all plastic, with attached cables. Sound-wise the X2's are doing their own thing unlike all other headphones.
While most headphones are tuned by graph, the X2's are tuned by what sounds good. So on a graph they look like they're a mess, but when you put them on the sound signature makes sense. It's bass heavy, huge sound stage, and it's a ton of fun. Definitely not analytical headphones.
Got mine in the mail and enjoying them, first pair of open back I've had.
Slowcountry
Unf, the open backs look so good!
Ok, got them in the mail today and they are as good as I remember. Though the stock pads make everything sound damn bright. I recommend buying some of the memory foam Brainwavz pads. They tame the treble and add extra bass impact.
These aren't that sensitive and on my SPL Auditor the volume nearly had to be at half, while when I use the T1 on the amp it's only 1/4 of the whole volume. So it's crazy how they aren't that sensitive. They needs some serious power from my experience. I am currently using them on the Darkvoice 336SE and it's drives them better than my other amps.

The pads dont fully remove the brightness but do help.
Zombie_X
Are the pads hard to change on these?
Got my tracking number for the GMP400 two days ago, but there's nothing on tracking yet. Maybe the headphone hasn't been shipped?
Why Massdrop hasn't dropped the 8.35D yet?
I'm looking to get a closed back set of headphones for under $300. I am considering these, but does anyone think I should be looking at other comparable closed back headphones?

Thanks for the info.

Bang and Olufsen Beoplay H6 gen 2's.. Hands down nothing comes close in that price range (or anything I've yet to come across several ranges above it). I have the ATH-MX30x's, 40x's and 50x's (actually prefer the 30x's as they sound more natural and less engineered, Senn Momentums gen 1 and 2, Beyer DT990 pros, HD600's.. The H6's blow them all out of the water sound wise in every conceivable sense. I do recommend replacing the cable with a good aftermarket one which can be found for the cheap on Amazon, because the factory cable is crap. And a good cable made a world of difference. For a closed back they have a brilliant sound stage, and the detail and clarity is phenomenal. They're never harsh or sibilant and the extension is great both ways. They're also the first pair of headphones that if anything ever happened to them I would instantly place an order for a new pair in the time it takes to go online and do it. They're very light, comfy, and gorgeous to look at.
Lol. The Headphonia review made me totally NOT want to buy these.
Seems like you should really read it and think about it if you're considering getting these.
Did anyone else find that Headphonia really had poor take on these?
K.T.N
I was thinking the same. It seems to get better reviews from people who bought it though. One person wrote that it's better than DT880 but inferior to HD600.
K.T.N
I canceled mine. I just couldn't find a good reason to buy them.
Here is my totally personal sound preference review (I like Treble and Mids and not heavy bass). I have the GMP400 which I bought here on Massdrop. I also have the Beyerdynamic DT880s (relatively new, less than 10 hours of listening), Sennheisser HD600s (Very old pair with hundreds of hours of listening), B&O H6 ver 2 (used daily at work) and HifiMann HE400I (probably less than 40 hours of listening). Build quality is plastic with the two cords instead of a single cord. However these are exceptionally light. Lightest off all my headphones. They are very comfortable. Sound quality in my opinion only is better than the DT880s (my DT880s have a high treble sound which the GMP400s don't). Sound Quality is less than my HD600s, B&O H6 and HE400I. Consider though that I paid $500 years ago for my HD600, and $300 each for the H6 and HE400I. These are 1/2 that price. For 1/2 that price they are very good. If i didn't have the other 3 more expensive ones these GMP400s would probably be my favorite. As elira said below in reply to Boombap the have "detail in the sound" and are a very nice pair with a reasonable price. They are worth it.

Thanks for you opinion!

No sound signature inferences?
GMP 400 vs Akg 7xx ???
michabarlev
If you're going for open back, definitely the AKG in my opinion.
Realizer
..not necessarily. The GMP has more highs and excellent deep and puncy bass at any level. They are very lightweight and more comfortable than K7XX, imho.
I understand that from the spec's we can figure out how big/small headphones are, but it would be nice to a 'fit' photos for all headphones. Just a simple 3/4 rear shot to give some perspective of size and fit.
Thanks!
What makes these special? Certainly not the price and the lack of reviews doesn't help.
Boombap
In my opinion these are high quality headphones with a sturdy construction, and a lot of detail in the sound. A nice pair of headphones at a reasonable price.
On ear or over ear

No idea what the nut below said.
non-removable cable :/
I bought a pair of 450 pro to give to a friend that was looking for durable headphones, I didn't know anything about this brand, but people said the constructions is sturdy and that seem to be good for heavy use. Before giving to my friend a pair of unknown headphones I decided to try them, my first impression was that they were rubbish, the sound was like listening to very cheap headphones but the detail was incredibly good. Then I decided to use them a couple of days before reaching any conclusion, first thing I noticed is that they sound much better with more volume, and that they need some hours of use to improve the quality at low volume. After some hours of listening I started loving them, I usually use a pair of Grado sr325is and the GMP sound kind of similar but with more detail and a higher dynamic range (not sure if it's because the impedance and the amplifier, it's a Jotunheim by the way). So at the end I liked them, surprisingly more than the HD6XX, not sure of I like them more than my Grados but I'll let you know if I start missing the GMP while using my Grados. I highly recommend these headphones.

I'll be getting the GMP 400 in this drop, so I may be able to do a comparison. But I don't think there's much difference in sound between the 450 and the 400, the 450 felt kind of "open" with a very natural sound.
Okay, thanks for the reply bud, enjoy!

Are the cables detachable? Or permanently mounted?
Will other people be able to hear my music? How is the bass? Do they get uncomfortable?
ChrisAntigen
I am talking about MB Quart QP 400 (same GMP 400). This is an open back headphone, so people will hear your music. The bass is very accurate, deep and fast without blowing out. Excellent. You can listen to music at highest level without distortion. Wearing is very comfortable because it is light.
