I have to say I picked these up earlier and was disappointed. Might be AptX but the drivers are nowhere near good enough to take advantage of the codec. Save your money. They sound like any other $50 pair of bluetooth headphones.
These at $55, refurbs at $39, or Ausdom m05 at $29? What do you guys think?
These compared to the Sennheiser PXC 550?
I'm new to the world of over ear headphones, I've always been an IEM guy. I got these for the portability & case, and to use on Bluetooth to listen to podcasts around my apartment.
My issue is the pads on here make my ears WARM. Gets really uncomfortable after about an hour, which is less time than most the podcasts I listen to. Does anyone have a recommendation for replacement pads on these? Being new to the over ear world are there standard sizes? I didn't see anything on the packaging.

So, I have these headphones, and in general I find the sound, design etc. pretty good for everyday use...
..all but the factory pads. If these have the original version's thin pads, then they are too thin (for my ears).
I ordered similar Brainwavz to those linked above, but the hybrid model (pleather/velour). Of note: - They are WAY more comfortable. - They are less sound isolating. - They fit great, but are way larger than the originals, almost ridiculously so, and you have to smush them a bit to get the headphones in the case. - The headphones sound quite a bit warmer/bassier than with the stock pads (a bit too much so, IMHO)
The all-leather brainwavz may isolate a bit better, and not warm the sound quite so much, but I'm considering moving these pads to another headset,and trying the $10 pads from MEE (assuming they are back in stock now).
Brainwavz on left, stock pads on right. You were correct about the comical size @JayBP

Totally changes the fit and finish. Comfort and sound isolation both noticeably improved by swapping them out. I'm actually noticing how muddy and crappy the bass sounds on these cans now, haha, so take that for what it is worth. Still getting use as a Bluetooth option for me around the house when active/not seated.
Also no way I'm trying to cram these in the case they came with now.
I bought these 5 months ago:
Advantages : 1- Delivery is quite decent , in my case it was shipped via UPS, and arrived on time.
2- In-built Microphone works just fine.
3- Battery lasts for a good while and there's a voice message to notify you when the battery is low.
4- Carrying case is sturdy and stylish with a great carbon fiber finish.
Disadvantages:
1- If you're going to use the maximum size of these headphones you'll have two problems ( they'll look too huge and one of your hinges might break due to continuous pressure of the earcups *see the photos* ).
2- After the continuos usage of these headphones for 2-3 hours your ears and your head will start hurting.
3- The cable which arrives with the headphones has NO microphone or sound adjustment buttons.
4- Bluetooth connection will show a delay while watching videos and playing video games.

The pair I got from the last drop are too loose, IMO (hat size 7 3/8).
liteon163
Your hat size is small to medium. Meanwhile my size is large , which makes these headphones look ridiculous in public and creates too much pressure on the hinges...
I bought a pair of these last time around. They're not "bad" but they're not "good," either. They're way too heavy on bass and the stock ear pads are thin and shallow. Sure MEE Audio will sell you deeper pads for $10, but they should have gotten it right the first time. I would not bother with these. Sorry, Massdrop.
So the audio quality compared to a pair of Sony BT headphones I bought for around the same price without Massdrop is noticeably better. The range is solid, deep bass presence and strong mid. Comfort has been just right, sitting comfortably around my ears and the headband isn't uncomfortable either. The headphones come with a sturdy case, usb charge cable and a 3.5mm connector if you don't want to use BT, which is a nice option to have say if you are away from charging for a while. My biggest issue with these however is their BT functionality. Paired with my iPhone 6S+ I have a noticeable delay, which for me is unforgivable for a pair wanting to be taken seriously. At best the delay is about 0.5s seconds, but at worst it can stretch beyond 1s, meaning watching videos, playing games, taking calls using the headphones is extremely distracting as you become immediately aware of the delay. If you look to the manufacturers, they talk as if half a second delay is an acceptable window of error, but for a pair of BT headphones, that just doesn't stand for me. There is a cable with the headphones allowing you to go wired, but they don't allow the use of the built in mic when wired, so although the wire helps remove the delay, it renders them yet again useless for mobile headphone versatility. If what you are looking for is a headset that you can listen to music and podcasts, then these will work just fine, but beyond that, if you need something with minimal delay for tight audio sync then stay well clear of these headphones.
Thanks for the special discrimination against Singapore, UK, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. This is becoming more and more common among drops. Why don't you just close off Singapore, UK, Taiwan, and Hong Kong accounts?

Lol they just hate Asia man

Meh, you crying ? I live in México and they don't sell to us. For the it's ok to sell to Argentina, Peru and Uruguay (which are pretty much further, so much that they are called southamerica instead of central america, like us), but it is not ok selling to us, which are their neighboors.
Received mine a couple of weeks ago. Sound quality for music is pretty good. Phone calls suck! I can hear fine, but everyone I talk to says the sound is very muffled.
I purchased a pair of these the last time they were offered on Massdrop. I'm very happy with them for the price. Notice that I said "for the price". If you are expecting these to rival $200, or even $100 headphones, you'll most likely be disappointed. They sound pretty good and feel pretty decent. I haven't experienced any of the issues that others have encountered so I'd say that there's a chance you'll have issues and there's a chance that you won't. I really like that they came with a carbon fiber hard case. That makes storing them in my backpack very nice. I've never used them with the audio cable so I can't comment on that. The charge seems to last as long as I ever use them, which may be 2 to 6 hours between charges. They might go longer but I've never tried. I'm happy with them and just wanted to let the community know that not everyone has had a bad experience with them. Also, I'm sorry to hear about those who have. I hate when I purchase something and have issues with it.
I am not sure if i am retarded or not but when i clicked on which country to ship to, i could not find England or UK. Anyone know why?
Please do NOT buy these battery fully died in like 2 months now they dont charge. They are really uncomfortable without aftermarket ear pads. And they sound alright but it leaks to the same extent as a semi open back pair of headphones so you cant use them outside of your home go throw your money at the status audio cb-1 drop that is currently the same price.

I have 3 years with my Matrix2 and the battery is still alive, it lasts around 8-12 hours of use.
You could better say "you should beware that you may have a battery that won't last" instead of ranting like you know every single unit will fail (and you arent even talking about the warranty).
And you are talking about being uncomfortable, but guess what ? I found them to be one of the most comfortable earphones to be using all day long and I live in a tropical weather city. Yes, they are warm and make you sweaty but even then I find them comfortable, much more than my DT880's for long day use (the 880's are even warmer and they can feel pretty hot in the tropical weather).
There is a lot more sound leakage than I expected. Not really usable in public or for travel.
Welp I bought these less then a year ago and now they no longer Charge and both joints are slightly broken.

Same experience here
AntonyFarag
One of my joints just broke after about a month! Not majorly impressed. :(
Mine arrived today. Haven't put in an extensive listening test but I was worried about the basshead comment in the Wall of Fame review. While it doesn't thump like some of the super bass heavy cans I'm pleasantly surprised. Earpads seem a little on the light/flat side but will give them some time to expand before judging.
Are these the 2015 release of the headphones?
HeeroYuy
Yes
Why are these not being shipped to the UK ?????
what is the cost of shipping to the uk please
Would these be worth the 150?
Ewout
Absolutely not, if you compare them to $150 headphones with good value
Ewout
Almost nothing is ever worth the MSRP
How "over ear" are these? The ear pieces look smaller at first glance in the pics compared to what Im used to using. Id be getting these to wear at work. I have 12 hr shifts, and Id be wearing them for most of it.

They won't feel too comfortable for prolonged usage. After like 4-5 hours you'll start feeling some pain around your ears and head. Won't advise you to buy these pairs for work.
Memo99
He is right. This headphone will hurt your ears after a couple of hours. Sound is ok to somewhat good. But the comfort is not there. The tip or the outer part of your ears will feel it after a while. So if you are looking for comfortable overear headphone. look elsewhere not this one.
I bought my pair of these 2½ years ago. I still use them occasionally. They do not sound like my $300+ wired headphones but I never expected them to. What they are is comfortable enough, sound good enough with good enough battery life to make them very useful when I'm looking for a wireless solution.
Are these worth getting if i have to pay75$ for them because of the shipping? And are they able tobe used to watch videos (does it have a bad latency) and does the cable provided make it just as good as a wired pair of headphones?

Same issue. :'(
The same dang thing happened to me one or two weeks ago all I did was take it off my head and the right side.
So after a few months of usage my conclusion is that these BT Cans are very good for the price I paid. Pros: Sound quality is surprisingly good. Good clean bass, clear mids, crisp highs. Battery life is very good. I'll go two days at work of intermittent use and then recharge. I haven't let the batteries drain yet. Very comfortable, even while wearing glasses all the time, as I do. The pleather is fine; can't expect more at this price. Easily adjustable for a great fit. Lower end turns for even better fit.
Cons: Audio delay while watching video. Makes it un-enjoyable to stream a movie on my iPad. I have $20 BT cans that don't do this (Motorola S305 and Kinivo BTH-220). Haven't received feedback from Tech Support to see if there is a fix. Button placement is too close together. Difficult to adjust volume or change tracks without pressing the wrong button. Wish they would have spaced them out. Passive audio cable option doesn't work on both sides. I can only listen music out of one side unless I play with the cable. I've tried other cables and no improvement. Problem with connector. I only want it for BT use. I have other cans for passive use.
Conclusion: For the money, these are a very good pair of BT headphones.
I picked up a Matrix 2 a few months back and find it to be pretty good for the price point of 55ish dollars. The bass is fairly punchy and has some decent rumble, vocals are ok and highs lack a little bit of sparkle, But not bad for the price. I'm used to better and MUCH more expensive headphones so that recess in the highs is noticeable to me. Soundstage is a bit limited, but that's to be expected in this category.
The build is pretty good and sturdy. Comfort is just ok with the stock pads, but not something I want to wear for many hours on end. They have new pads now and I'm not sure if mine have the newer pads or the older (smaller) pads, so YMMV.
You can use Brainwavz pads even though they are almost to big, but can fit. This is much more comfortable and the larger cup add to the soundstage, but there is a decrease in bass. I prefer to stick to the stock pads for this reason.
These are diffidently good for the gym if you don't want to risk you more expensive headphones.
All and all I fell comfortable recommending these at this price point for a decent set of Bluetooth headphones that wont kill you wallet. Even if you have a nice pair of BT headphones these make a good second beater pair for those times you don't want to risk you expensive pair.

Doesn't necessarily mean it the exact same headphone with the same audio quality, but even if so I'd pay the extra $6 for the case the one you linked doesn't seem to include.
TheDewd
Dang! These appear the same (barring the 22-hour run time claimed by Mee vs. 16-hour; maybe they put in a bigger battery). A lot of these value-for-money Chinese products are re-brands.
Nice find.
Got these off Amazon a while ago and they're terrible. Sound quality is mediocre and listening to podcasts makes it sound like there's a very thin wall in between you and the speaker(s). Probably going to end up selling mine on eBay for $30 or something.

Well, seem like the real deal. Like I said I think for $55 they are fine.
I was a little disappointed when i first got them too, but only because I heard how great they where and was expecting more. But after a little use I concluded they are fine for the money. Sure I have a bunch of headphone that sound much better, but they are also MUCH more expensive.
Sorry you don't like them. If I wasn't on a super tight budget I'd give you $30 for them, if only to give away as a gift.
What are you using now?
RojasTKD
It's a pretty even spread between Thinksound On2 and ms02 (IEM), Philips X2, and AKG 7xx cans. So that may be the issue, is I expected their quality from the Matrix. My first headphones were m50x's, but those are much better than these too so I guess I just found the problem. :)
Before you buy : 1. these are not for looks 2. Sound is a little bit louder ( nearly seemless ) with the audio cable than on Bluetooth , but both significantly loud. 3. This is definitely louder than your EarPods. 4. What you see is what you get. 5. It is a bit sturdy at the beginning , which is due to great material quality. 6. Shipping to Turkey took 12 days after the drop ended , which is worth the extra bucks. 7. I was able to connect the headphones to two devices at the same time. 8. There is no Microphone on the aux cable , so unless you're using Bluetooth, you wouldn't be able to make calls. 9. Won't be so comfortable when sing them and leaning your head on a wall or a pillow due to their big size. 10. You aren't paying 350$ , so don't expect to get a high end product , it is just decent for its price. 11. Are they the best in that price range ? I don't know 🤷‍♂️
The estimated ship date is on 5th of May. Does that mean that it will be delivered by that date or that it will be sent out for delivery at that day?
Memo99
that is they day they expect to have them at the mass drop warehouse by
AntonyFarag
Apparently it is the day it reaches you out, I just received my pair of headphones today.
I own and love these. I did substitute a brainwave hm5 earpad which made a big difference in comfort. The sound is big, and as one who only had in ear I was surprised how much detail one can get from the larger drivers. The world may be getting weirder and weirder, but put these on and there is a private world to revel in.

I have the same set-up with the velour ear pads and it opens up the sounds a bit. I really like these for the price. Going wireless is amazing.
It said it comes with a 1/8 to 1/4 cable and it didn't come with one, you might want to change the description.
