Ooooh, I got the On2! I really wanted that one, because I need the passive noise cancellation!
Should first bonus prize be unlocked since drop confirmation said 107 purchases?
, .
So I bought 2 last drop at $35, didn't receive them both. I was refunded, but this was not the first time I've not received my full purchase through massdrop fulfillment (vendor fulfillment orders have been fine). And now it's $15 more if I were to give it another go for almost the same thing. I'm gonna have to pass this time around. My gamble last time was enough.
Anyone know what number sold this drop started with? Wondering where we are at on the prize chart
anyone knows if there are warranties on these?

1 year on the buds, 2 years on the ON2 I believe. I have all of them
Got mine. ms02. bassy, low clarity... I think MP 9927 and Tin T2 sound better.
I haven't received my unit yet. Anyone else got their unit?

update: the sauce has been secured
My pair just went through the washer after airline trip! They still sound great but lost some wood finish. :)

:) Probably not the best method for preconditioning.

Well can't say I haven't had to glue them back together, but that just adds to the "ownership experience". :)
Hey, I was just wondering how and when I know what item I've recieved from the poll. Do I have to wait until I recieve the item or can I check earlier?
Woxoid
Yes, only upon receipt. Good luck.
did anyone else notice that the first and second bonus items are the same as the third and fourth bonus items? I'm new around here so was wondering if that is how it normally works. I would have thought that they would just progressively go up in quality between the 300 and the fostex instead of repeating the same models.

Hmm the last Blue Box from ThinkSound was a $35 drop... So why the higher asking price this time around?
Gregfras
Probably the on2 being included
I just found out about this yesterday and joined. Good to see all the gamblers are on-board. Pretty sure I'll pee myself if I get any one of the base upgrades or extra prizes. Good luck all.
Question: Obviously I don't know which product I'm getting but since I'm assuming the size is similar with the ms-02, rain 3 and ts-03 I'm curious what size Comply tips would fit these? Do Comply tips fit? Thanks guys.
Pando
Probably too late now but they fit my ts-02+ so you should be good.
Mylotic
Not too late. Thanks. Good to know Comply fit. I have the 400s for another pair but I think I saw these use the 500s. Either way, looking forward to them m
Holy poop, got the ON2s. I'm pretty new to high end headphones, so I might be missing something. Can y'all help? These sound amazing in the mids.... But I have to admit I'm missing the warmth of strong bass. Also the highs are less than super clear. Is that common with higher end phones? Is an amp required for full bodied sound? Appreciate any advice.

Big help, thank you. This upgrade is going to cost me an expensive new hobby. For the record: these are sounding better and better. Got the same amp you mentioned plus I let them break in a bit.

These definitely have a bass-midbass enhancement. It is not near as heavy as beats or any other "basshead" set if that is what you are comparing it to. The enhancement also doesn't reach as low as the bass extension on my m50x. Clarity I find very good, but the whole 'phone does trend a little warm, which I find fun to listen to. Run them with decent volume for a day or two straight and then try again.
I got the Rain 3 on an earlier drop, not a bad thing, sounds way more open than the MEE M6pro that I just got, good bass but heavy at times and the lower mids are dull, but the openness and sound stage make up for the short comings and are just more lively to listen to, good volume and doesn't need an amp, the cell phone is what I use iem's for. Blocking the vent holes takes away excess bass but you lose the depth. If only I could get this sound with more mid detail.
Please include more headphones with mics! Big Thinksound fan and would have jumped on this and the last deal in a heartbeat if there was a better than 20% chance of getting one with a mic.
I was really amazed at how terrible and thin they sounded because I had installed the smallest tips. I switched to the medium tips and it was nigh and day. Much more balanced.
50 bucks??? Try again.

Well, I got my EDCs and they are, indeed, quite a treat. I feel like they sound better than my Triple driver Onemores... but that could be because they just simply fit and seal better. I have a question though. How the hell do I keep the cables from hurting the top of my ears? =( I haven't tried the second cable yet, but the twisted cable that's already angled is so terribly uncomfortable.
TLemelin
The wire is definitely my least favorite part about the HEM4s... mostly because it also tends to fall off the top of my ear as well. The included shirt clip might help in stabilizing the wire; I've found it to be helpful when going on a long walk. This could also potentially keep the wire from scraping the ear. The other wire has a mic I believe, so the cable isn't braided. Perhaps this could also help with chaffing due to the texture and added mic weight. Hope this helps! I never really cared for the fit of over the ear cables but they sure do isolate well.
Oh my gosh I don't even remember buying this Dropbox cause I asked mummy and she was like nah don't pay $8 for shipping but I guess the wants for new earphones was too strong and I got the ms02, I can't freaking believe it cause the last time something as monumental as this happened I won a silver medal in a ballet recital in like P2 aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Anybody get the mic'd version and want to trade for non mic'd version
Ok my quick review of the rain3, mid-range is great, high-end has a short decay almost non existent but good detail. Midbass/low end frequencies are bloated and heavy. Perfect headphones for me at the gym. I do my listening from an LG V30 combination of high res files and streaming.
It's very much looks like a lot of shills or bots are writing those reviews. It's not good. Well, I guess I learn my lesson.
PS: I wish I could return it for refund... but then again it's not the amazon.
Does anybody know the size of tip the Rain 3 are? Trying to find some triple flange ear tips, but I'm not sure on the size of tip for these. I know that the tip is bigger than the USP1. I got 2 of these packages at 2 different drops. Also, anybody know of a good triple flange replacement? I got some foam eartips from Comply. They're nice, I just want to try something else.
Got rain3. Those are required a good seal but even then it's not worth 89 bucks. 35? well, it does not matter when it sounds harsh. Got succumbed on all that massdrop deal hype.
Got the ts03+mic. I wasn't expecting much, but it's actually good. :)
tad44
Yes, got the same, very good surprise.
Has anyone received them yet? Where are they shipping from?

I'm bout to go check the mailbox as it's supposed to have arrived
When will we find out which of the headphones we received?
Jibberish
When they arrive.
This is my first Blue Box, and I am wondering something... What exactly is a "Massdrop prize", that you would get in place of headphones?
Daffy
The massdrop prize is the Thinksound ON2 that is unlocked at every 100 units sold
For anyone wondering the chances are on these, with it at 356 sold, as my email says you and 355 other members made this drop a success, I'm going to do the proper totals and percentages. (as the actual numbers are skewed with the 3 extras thrown in.)
(Note: im subtracting 1 from the Ms02, and 2 from the ts03+mic as i used a rng to decide what units would be replaced with the 3 bonuses. This could be distributed differently, this is just to get a scope of how it could go.)
Thinksound ms02: 144.18, so 143/356 Percentage(rounded to nearest thousandth): 0.402
Thinksound ts03+mic: 103.24, so 101/356 Percentage: .284
Thinksound rain3: 103.24, so 103/356 Percentage: .290
Thinksound USP1: 5.34, so 6/356 (as it is the closest one to being rounded up) Percentage: .017
 Thinksound ON2 : 3, so 3/356 Percentage: .008
Overall id just buy for the resale value tbqh, check ebay and these go for only a bit below their original price used.
edit: edited with actual numbers
For those of you who are unhappy with the sound, these IEMs are VERY ear-tip sensitive... more so than most of my other IEMs. The seal is critical. If not properly sealed, they tend to sound anemic...if the tips are too large, they tend to sound muddy. With the right fit IMO they sound wonderful. On the warm side but with plenty of detail. Great imaging as well.
Thinksound is one of my favorite companies. This drop is a steal no matter which IEM you get.
Danbstein
That's exactly my experience. The foam tips are very bad for ms01 and ms02. They will make the sound thick and muddy. I found the wide opening silicon tips are the best for ms01/ms02.
