Hello Friends, Every holiday season, we approach our partners and ask if they’d like to do anything special for the Massdrop community. Usually this means more drops for more desirable products at lower prices. This year, we had a great conversation with our long standing partners at Harman (JBL, AKG, etc) with some exciting results. Through their generosity in the form of a reduced cost, we are able to a new drop on the Massdrop x JBL LSR30X of $179.99 shipped to your door in the continental united states. The only downside is that we can only offer this on existing units. Future units will have to be sold at the original drop price of $279.99. So once these sell out, the new units go back to $279.99 because JBL can’t give us this lower cost into perpetuity. Understanding this negatively impacts those who have purchased most recently, Massdrop is refunding the $100 difference to all those who have purchased the LSR30X on or after November 1st 2017. If you purchased the LSR 30X on or after November 1 (in the last 47 days), you’ll receive a $100 partial refund in the days ahead. Thanks for your interest in this product, and thanks to our partners at Harman for making this holiday surprise possible!

Dumb, Just cut both your hand and u won't get finger print forever

Speak English!
Think there’s any chance this will drop again? I know they have the newer version lsr305p out now
Do the magnets interfere when the monitors are being used close to computer screens and other electronics for extended periods of time?
Does the regular lsr305 have a matte front faschia as well as cabinet? The front grill where the woofer and tweeter domes are housed I mean. I was super worried about the glare the lacquer finish on this would produce and as I feared, the glare from light in my room off the front of the monitors is already bugging me. Thinking of selling these and getting a pair of regular 305s even though that will cost me more if it means it will actually cut down on the glare.

The speakers come with thin white cloth that covering each speaker. I put my speakers on stands while the cloth still on it (Need to cut some holes at back for cables and volume knobs. No glossy glare shit, No fingerprint, No dust. Just turn it on and enjoy every day.
In one of my speakers the volume potentiometer seems to be not contacting properly. If I move it up or down a bit (not turn, nudge the whole thing) it seems to lose contact. Did anyone experience that?
SOB... they just canceled my order for these, said they’re back ordered and don’t know if they’ll get any more.
Khaphora
Same here... sad.
Well, onto Dynaudio or proac then!

I was genuinely excited for them. I had hope in Massdrop after all the drama and complaints but I guess it's true. I will be avoiding business with Massdrop from now on.
Just got mine delivered today. One of the monitors has a couple scratches on the top + some sticky residue in a couple spots on the face, as if packing tape had been directly on the speaker at some point.
I'm wondering if I got a pair that was previously returned. Curiously, the serial number listed is S0000088. 88 obviously seems way too low given how many of these have been sold. But maybe it's a new set of serial numbers on this drop or something?
I'll email Massdrop about this, but they usually take several days to respond. Can anyone else who got in on this drop share what serial you got so I can see if mine is indeed weirdly low and maybe a returned set from an old drop?
mr_gerf
Returned B stock?
Hmmmmm...
Could you please upload some photos?
mr_gerf
i also got a low serial number, 700 i think, let me know what u find out? maybe they are refurb?
Can anyone tell me which keyboard was used in the 6th picture of this JBL LSR30X ?
Is it MassdropX0.01 (Silver) Z70?
Even if anyone can give the name of a similar looking mechanical keyboard, it would be of great help.
i joined in the last drop a few days ago. does it include any audio cables or just the power line ones?

ok thank you

My set from an early 2017 drop included an interconnect cable: 3.5mm SE split to two 1/4in TRS. It came in a separate package and arrived a day after the speakers.
Got in just in a nick of time at 179.99. Shipping at 69 to Korea is a bummer but still much cheaper than local lsr305 and 305p are priced ridiculously over here.
Heavyboxer
So Massdrop canceled the sale. Bummer
more please :(
Damn it, is the drop over already? Was it a limited drop?
Vertinari
Maybe the drop was just for clearing inventory.
How do these compare to, say, Mackie CR3s? I know JBL is usually of higher quality and fidelity back in the day, but last speakers I auditioned from them were underwhelming to say the least.
Will the next shipment also come with an adapter to minijack?
I'm confused, does one speaker drive the other, or are they both powered?
partsman83
Each speaker needs a power plug to supply power so yeah, they are both powered.
Yeet123
got it thanks!
Before anyone asks, these are the JBL LSR305 in a glossy finish. These are not the same thing as the newer JBL 305P MKii.
I use 4 of these in a surround sound setup with a Marantz AV preamp. They are excellent for the price.
Get these!!! While it is my opinion, I feel these look much nicer than the originals. The sound is amazing even without a subwoofer. If you are looking for entry audiophile speakers, this is the best way to start. Pair this with a Modi 2 and Magni 3 and you have an awesome setup.
jfox8
These are individually-powered speakers, why would you pair with Magni? If anything hook them straight from the modi.
rdodev
Use the Magni for headphones and as a preamp. It is really nice to have an access volume knob.
Won't the gloss coating on these create a lot of reflective glare from any light sources in the room?

How do you have your speakers hooked up? I have the Modi/Magni stack but the RCA outputs aren't balanced i thought? Or does that not seem to matter with these speakers?
Edpon
They aren’t balanced, but I have not had any issues. If you get a ground loop (which I do not) there are products like the Hum X to kill the problem. Hope this helps.
Dang i just picked up the 305p mkII for about $250 (125 each) . Nice price for the pair on these!

Same, $465 AUD for a pair of MKIIs a few weeks ago when I moved in to my new apartment :/

These are LSR305s, not the newer 305P.
How tall are the included feet?

Thank you!

No problem
I’m not an audio engineer, and these are my first speakers used on my PC. With that said, they’re fine, pretty much what I expected. I’ve had them for a few weeks and after tweaking the gain settings, they sound fine. They look really fantastic and plug directly into my monitor which makes cable management easier.
when can we have this again? gosh i really want this now

Champion_HD
How you liking them bro. lowkey the bass is Amazing.
It's been quite a while since these last dropped, is there any chance that they'll be back soon?
are these comparable to the 305 or the 308?
Jeffs1
they are basically the same as the 305..... if you're in a small room these will be better... 308 for large rooms
Does the TRS jack support stereo input? Tried emailing JBL but there hasn't been a reply

I know, but was wondering if each individual speaker can receive stereo signals
phoenixsong
No. The mono inputs are hoping for a balanced mono signal, and can deal with an unbalanced mono signal, but cannot deal with a stereo signal.
Any good quality RCA to 1/4 mono cables for these speakers? I realized they're quite sensitive to adaptor changes, hence I've decided to just upgrade the cables :)
Does anyone know if they ran out of units last drop?
"Prior to becoming a production-ready design, each 3 Series model is subjected to JBL’s tough 100 hour power test, in which the speaker is required to play continually at full output for 100 hours without failure." Anyone knows what this means? Using my SDAC and sensitivity setting at +4dBu (the softer one), I hardly even crank the volume control past 5... If full output means volume at 10 with the -10dBV selection, I'm kinda worried :p
phoenixsong
I plugged them directly into the 3.5mm jack on my laptop (which admittedly has a Sabre ESS DAC/amp solution built into it) and set the volume control on the speakers all the way to 10. The loudest I've ever run them is at 60% on my laptop. I could hear them down the street with my windows CLOSED. I generally have my laptop volume control set somewhere between 2 and 8%. LOL :P

Shouldn't blame bad pics on a good speaker--it's bad Karma!
