Mine just arrived last night... I'm a bit concerned the box was already opened. This happen to anyone else?
I bought this pair mainly for gaming since my akg are slowly dying. How comfortable are they for prolonged sessions?
At the current price of the Thinksound On2 I think that'll be a better buy
How do this compare to Audio Technicas ATH-M40X? I between those and this Purpleheart. Which has better audio quality? I like flat response, but a little bit of bass is cool, what I hate is overpowered treble.

I have the ATH-M40X but haven't tried the E-MU Purplehearts. I can speak about the ATH-M40X who are very good in terms of audio quality and flat response. I've read many reviews claiming that M40X are better than the M50X and worth the money.

I'm using the M40X with this DAC and it powers them more than enough and gives clarity - https://hifimediy.com/Sabre-9018-DAC

From reading the E-MU reviews, I'd say the M40X is non comparable and much much better than the E-MU but this is just my opinion!

I’ve only owned the purplehearts for about 12 hours so take this comment with that in mind. That said, if you love a flat signature you may like the m40X better. I find the purplehearts warmer than the 40s. The purplehearts are also lighter weight. Very easy to drive with my phone too so perfect for commuting or having medical care inflicted on me.
How would these compare to the Bose A.E 2 wireless? I recently upgraded my home drivers and all other headphones sound pretty sucky now.
do these beat my m220s? wondering if its worth it. I am experimenting with different types of headphones and have figured that I like closed over open.
edit: plan on gaming with them and listening to music
Is the Sensitivity in dB/1Vrms or dB/1mW ?

Still great price all in all
guys although this one is associated with Creative Aurvana Live! - it still doesn't have the same sound signature, so please search and vote for CAL! drop, because we need to bring it back! :)
I'm going to wind up buying these one night when I'm drunk.
I got a lame joke! I got a lame joke!!! If Foster is the parent company of Fostex, who is the parent company of Foster? Father? *ba-dum-tss*
I just got my pair, they sound quite good and sonically hold up quite well to more expensive headphones. The stock pads are rather small and are bordering on on-ear as opposed to over-ear. I have read that the HM5 pads work well as do Shure 840 and 940 pads. For now it is working great for use with a phone/tablet/NintendoSwitch.

I don't own these..but everything I read about them says on ear so that's not a surprise.

It's also the reason I didn't get these.

Yeah if you have anything resembling average to large ears, these would be way too small to cover. Might be considered over-ear if you have smaller ears. A solid, fun coloured secondary pair nonetheless. They also leak way too much sound to be used in an office.
I just received x E-MU PH yesterday. Cute and light headphones are nice sounding for me, on the warm side but not too much.
For portable use on a smartphone.
OK massdrop, if you can make a version of these with a detachable cable and then perhaps even offer a remote/mic on the cable, I'm all in. Otherwise, sorry.

With this being an decade+ old headphone design I don't necessarily see them changing it now. The Denon D1000, D1001 and Creative Aurvana Live! are the same headphone with minor tweaks. This is a CAL! with PH wood cups that sells for $74.99, pretty thin margins to account for a change in manufacturing process on a line that's been discontinued 3 times already. As long as the price/volume remains right I'm sure Foster won't mind keeping the line open, alterations could be difficult as they've only recently added this to their higher end OEM and in house brands.

I was gonna say. These are Creative Aurvana Live! phones in a different livery. I thought I was crazy.
