joined then left. Sorry. I just dont think the deal is that good based on what people are offering on amazon once shipping is taken into consideration. 14 people in 3 days is also a hard sell for these cans; audiophiles on massdrop are gravitating toward much more expensive :(
Is there any idea roughly when this drop would ship if successful? Most drops have an estimated shipping date, this is the only one I've seen without one...
I was actually looking for an open ear version and it looks like the SR850's on Amazon have the same ear pads. After their little "just keep them" stunt, I'm ordering from this company! Great PR. :)

Apparently, most plastics contain that anyway: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bis%282-ethylhexyl%29_phthalate A possible endocrine disruptor.
Yay. Good grief.
Unless one were to gnaw on the earpads I expect one wouldn't have too many problems.
I own these headphones already. My thoughts: these aren't monitor headphones. They're almost certainly U shaped in sound signature. However, in their stock form, they sound good with just about every genre. They are particularly ideal for well produced electric guitar based music. The only downsides are build quality (durable but tangibly cheap, mildly creaky; velour pads make experience better) and the overhead frame wires. Bump them and they reverberate at a particular bass frequency. Well worth their low price here OR on Amazon if cheaper.
why?? On amazon.it i can buy it for 40 € with free shipping
On amazon it is EUR 49,00 free shipping so....
What is the expected ship date for this latest drop?
Are these better sounding than the CAL!s ?

I see more recommendations around for the Aurvana than these. Also, these are 50 USD with free shipping on Aliexpress.

Thanks
Just received the 850's. I much prefer closed cans, but these sound very nice. If the 950's are just the closed version of the 850's, I will be very pleased.
Just an update for you all.
These were shipped by the vendor and are expected to arrive at our warehouse before the end of the week! We will upload tracking as soon as these are picked-up.

Quick update for the group. It looks like Samson while receiving the units in their warehouse had a slight hiccup and marked a pallet of SR850 units as SR950s. The incorrectly marked shipment arrived at our warehouse and was sent out to you. We were able to confirm this error shortly after shipping the units. That's the bad news...
The great news is that Samson has happily agreed to do the following for the Massdrop community, because the strong support you all have shown them. They want the group to keep the SR850s free of charge and they are currently preparing a shipment of SR950s to send to our warehouse right now. Expected ship date for that order is Monday and it should arrive at our warehouse towards the middle of the week. We will be shipping those out to you as soon as they arrive.
Hope you all enjoy both the SR850 and SR950 and big props to Samson for embracing the Massdrop Community so strongly!
Expect an update from us on 4/2 when the SR950s ship!

It is sunk cost for them... They can't always do that but once in a while it's the right play.
I hear you though... Like I said, I'm excited to try these out.
What sort of videos are you delaying making?

whateer the hell i decide to do. probably reviews, stream highlights and random skits i guess?
soo i got my package just now, and I was super happy and excited to open the box, to find an samson sr850?!?! I'm not entirely sure what went wrong here... but I'm assuming this is something to do with the vendor?

That would definitely be terrible. I just checked the order forms and invoices and everything says SR950 so I am hoping this is just one off thing and we will be easily be able to take care of you.

Great news group! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out from our warehouse and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.
If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to contact us via “Contact Support” button in your transaction page (https://www.massdrop.com/transactions).
Quick update for the group, inventory arrived with the vendor Friday and our representative has notified us that the group's order will be shipping out from them early this coming week.
Based on past inbound transit times and the expedited shipping the vendor is going to use these should arrive towards the middle of the week.
We will update the group as soon as these are with us packed and ready for reshipment.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 3/26 or sooner if something comes up.
Recapping the last update, we had a call with the vendor Friday as scheduled and were notified that due to a delay the shipment they were expecting from manufacturing didn't arrive as anticipated.
Not to worry as our representative was certain that the shipment will be arriving with them before the end of this week and they will be able to have the group's order on the way to us very quickly once it arrives with them.
This does mean that the initial expected ship date of 3/18 will most likely be missed, but we are asking the vendor to expedite inbound shipping to us to try and cutdown time wherever we can. Rest assured that once the bulk order arrives with us it will be readied for individual reshipment very quickly.
We will remain in contact with the vendor and update the group as soon as these arrive with us.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 3/20 or sooner if something comes up.
Quick update for the group. We are in contact with the vendor and awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse. We will update the group as soon as these are on the way.
Currently we expect that these will be in our warehouse inline with the expected ship date listed in the drop description page.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 3/17 or sooner if something comes up.
I had these and sent them back. They have problems sealing for sub bass.
Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Samson SR950 Headphone and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them directly to you! The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 3/18.
Rest assured that we we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 3/12.
Hey guys, I'm considering joining up on this but I have a quick question about the cord length. I am completely new to headphone and was wondering if I need to purchase a separate piece so as to have a cord longer than 8.25 inches? Thanks for the help looking forward to stepping up my headphone game.

It is 8.25 feet. (or 2.5 meters)
I have the superlux hd681 (with ebay velour pads) and am really tempted to pick these up since i've been curious about the other superlux/samson models but since the hd668b/sr850 has a more flat response and it's said that the sr950 is a slightly more bassy and closed version of the sr850, i'm thinking these phones might be too similar to my hd681.
anyone have both the hd681 and sr950?
Well...it's spendin' time again. Then again - you can't put a price on happiness, right? :D
I already have the Superlux 668b (with HiFiMan velour pads) and I love them :) But I wanted to try close headphones for better sound isolation. Should I buy this or Superlux hd669 for less, with removable cable but without velour pads ?
Do you need an amp for these?
Predatormonkey
32ohms, so no.
Predatormonkey
nope, they're under 36 ohms, (i think thats like the standard either that or 32) so they're good for use with any old pc, laptop, even most phones. even some like, 60-ish ohm headphones are okay on lower-medium volume levels for some weaksauce phones.
just by the way. if you decide to get them. you're going to be pulling your hair (or lack of) out while waiting for them. (if they're your first step into better quality headphones like mine. WHY CANT IT JUST HAPPEN ALREADY)
just joined the group. super stoked to get them and finally have some nice headphones. :D
How do these sound? Are they good for electronic music?
What do you guys know about delivery to Denmark? Does Massdrop take care of any extra fees?
Jesus christ I need these. those ear cups are calling to me
These things are great! I have them and noise isolation is fantastic, and the sound quality is amazing.
Any word on how good the isolation on these is? Can I have these on and not have the person sitting next to me hear?
I paid $50 for it, it's a great deal and a great entry level headphone. Do this for a couple of days if the clamp force is too tight.
