Listening to mine right now (did not buy them through the drop, as I didn't know Massdrop existed until long after the drop). If they ever come back, there are a number of reasons to like or dislike them, but "gimmicky" seems unfair. Yes, the bass is adjustable, but it isn't a simple "boost" on/off, and it is completely passive.

They are quite comfortable (I've gone 6+ hours with them at one sitting more than once) and while the fixed cable might be problematic, it accommodates the variable bass and I suspect this would be more difficult to implement with detachable cables. As to replacing the cable, if necessary, there is a YouTube video demonstrating how easy it is to do (and the cable itself is not all that expensive--certainly less than many aftermarket cables for headphones and other audio gear).

Are they the best headphones I've ever heard? Of course not. But (especially at the low price I paid for the floor demo model) they are quite nice and in situations where closed-back phones are required (as is often the case for me in libraries or to "tune out" outside distractions at home), only headphones several hundred dollars more expensive (than what I paid, not necessarily retail) offered equal, or better, performance. And with the very eclectic variety of music I listen to (from 70s prog rock, to Ella Fitzgerald, to obscure 20th century classical quartets, to bluegrass...), the variable bass tuning is nice to have.

I am looking forward to my first pair of open-back Sennheisers (the 58X that I ordered for a June delivery) to compare. Perhaps I'll no longer be impressed with my 630VBs after that (they will have cost me about the same after conversion of US to CDN dollars), though I suspect I will like each for different purposes.

My girlfriend has these and the cable is already starting to short after about 6 months of use, they look pristine otherwise. I use HD700s for my computer and they don't move except maybe 6 inches a day on my desk to my head. Those cables just shorted after about 14 months (and I replaced the cable for about 30 bucks, but an OEM cable costs about 190USD).

So we called Sennheiser to ask how much it would be to have them serviced and the cable replaced (for these HD630VBs) and they told us about 210USD with shipping/tax.

Don't buy these. They sound incredible, the variable bass is great for bassheads (I am not, girlfriend is). The build is incredible but the fixed cable.... I don't know what Sennheiser was thinking.
So, AKG K267 Tiesto with a mic and built by Sennheiser. I suppose AKG did leave a gap when the stopped making the K267 though...
Heefty
Try $270. I've never seen an ass on my favorite cans either. Whether Tiesto had a hand in designing them or not, you can't argue with results and I really don't care if they sound good. K267 are fabulous cans and far more versatile than anything else I've come across. I'm guessing these Senn cans would be similarly spectacular, except for the Senn veil and the fact that cable is not removable.

Furthermore, I think there might be some EDM fans that would take umbrage with your statement since he's pretty much the most popular DJ on the planet. Please keep your ignorant opinions to yourself. That or leave your basement from time to time and learn that you're not the only person on the planet.
they're rather nice actually, good sound from a closed headphone and I prefer open. They are huge though... the VB is sorta gimmicky, but I do use it when I'm listening to classical vs edm etc. Pretty impressed, but without a detachable cable and some better looks (imo) I don't think it's worth this price at all. I got them for $250 used and it was worth it at that price point.
Almost jumped on this. To be my headphone used with a antlion mic. But I see this has one. Those cable mics don't work well enough for me to use with work meetings. Bummer.
no removable cable kills it for me. i would give it a try otherwise
Oh yeah, I've heard of these. Looked incredibly gimmicky, though.
Nahhhh. I straight up went to test them and bought em at retail price. No regrets though. At least there is an in house service where I am and it saved me so much trouble when I had to get them reshelled due to some problem with the fit on the right ear. I've contacted them but the manufacturer didn't respond though. Kinda gave up haha

It's universal for almost all the models on demo. You can also get a universal one. But really doesn't make sense to get that haha. Any way, if you're thinking of getting really fancy designs. Be prepared to pay up to 160 sgd above the msrp on the website. Those that are foc are very plain. So it may cost much more if you're thinking of that. Just a heads up

Ah, I wouldn't worry about the face plate and all that, I like my stuff looking plain cos what matters is on the inside rather than the outside. Thanks for all the tips! :)
And same goes for Spain ....
I remember when these were first announced they got a ton of hype just because of how legendary the HD600 was and the HD650's current reputation. They aren't anything like the HD600 or HD650, really they're closer in design philosophy to the Momentum than anything, but the branding is so powerful people just want to believe it's something it's not.

They're good for the market they should be targeting, and I've considered buying a pair for work where I need a good closed headphone and the mic means I can use them for Skype without thought, but again if you're coming from the HD600/HD650 and are expecting a similar sound you're going to be very disappointed.
I don't know what's going on with MD these days, including shipping, these headphones are $7 more from Amazon ($415.95). Better at $374.99 plus $8.75 shipping ($383.74), where there is a $31.26 savings. Not nearly as much as I'd expect from MD.

I'm finding it's just as bad in the U.S.
Pricing isn't what it should be as I find no real discounts anymore, a lot of the time I have to pay shipping and then wait a month or more for a product that I could receive in a few days. Massdrop provides me product information then I start shopping elsewhere.
Halladay
Yup! Amazon FTW!!
