Delivery still at least a week away, for a grand total wait of 6+ weeks. Credible claims of the items being refurbs, terrible email support and no community outreach support.
Despite 2 other great Drops, this one is *SO* bad it's turned me off Massdrop forever. Ironically, a company makes a customer for life when there's a bad scenario, but only if the response is brilliant.
I suggest everyone stay well away from this drop in future, and consider all drops as risky propositions where if things go bad, acceptable support is hard to come by.

I got mine last week, and there's significant hissing in the left ear cup when NC is on. I know that can happen with some NC headphones, but this is pronounced only in one ear, has gotten worse over the last week, and is present when music is playing, muddying the audio quality.
Just reached out to MD about getting a replacement. As a first-time buyer who was pumped about this site, I really hope they pull through with the customer service.

Bad luck on that mate, keep us posted on how you go with customer service
So these are definitely refurbished models, or at least some are. Mine came with a USB-C cable even though it charges with micro USB. Could have saved $20 and a lot of time by just buying the refurbished from Amazon if I'd known I wasn't getting new :/

Yeah mine definitely was, though idk if Sony (since they’re from the vendor) did that for all the units.
I don’t mind refurbished but I was expecting new since absolutely nothing on the overview page even gives the impression of anything other than new. If we were getting refurbished we should have been told as such.
Especially since like I said before Amazon has them refurbished from sony for $20 cheaper and would have had two day shipping
Also I missed this comment but that is absolutely not correct. A usbc will not fit into a micro USB port they are not the same shape.
Hey all - Thanks again to everyone who joined this drop, and to those of you who have participated in the discussion below. We’re glad that the vast majority of you have received your headphones. That said, we know the experience of getting them hasn’t been great - they were delayed about 7 days (on a 2 week shipment target) and we didn’t communicate the delay clearly or in advance of the ship date. As a small apology for the poor experience, we are providing everyone in the drop with $10 Massdrop credit. (e-mails are being sent out shortly). We also are working on updating our policies around communication, delay, and compensation based on the feedback in this thread. We know that this doesn't help with the experience on this drop, but we hope that some of you will stick around as we work to improve and update our process for communication and our policies here when delays happen. Note - a small portion of users have not received their headphones yet. They’ll receive a separate e-mail shortly with additional information, additional credit, and will be able to cancel this drop. We’re sorry again for the delay and poor communication on this drop, but your feedback has been super helpful in pushing us to improve. Thank you sincerely to @tigerali , @rosecoloredboy , @Dojoo , @STJ23, @chris.k and the others below who were willing to share their perspective and participate in a productive discussion.

Dear bhadr, I still didn't get any follow up or responses from support. Please advise if you managed to discuss my case?

I made a poll for it
USA only? D:
Pity, I got this pair for $305 two months ago. But it doesn't ship to where I live anyways.
Quick review: If you own these then there are no reason to upgrade to the M3 (asides from securing a decent resale price) The M3 has slightly better bass and details, only slightly. Has USB-C fast charging which is great, but still does not work as a DAC theough USB-C Still does not play well with multi-device pairing.
I'm sticking to my M2 for the time being. (Got a pair after my QC30 took seven months to get repaired.)
piriya33
You lost me on this model with “the other one has slightly better base“ LOL
WILLxLOVE
Very slightly, give it a try at a local store.
Edited: The previous comment that was here pertained to MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) pricing that was in place on previous drops that we have done for this product. We previously listed this product at the MAP price of $349.99 and then gave a coupon at checkout for $100 off.
This drop we are offering the hard price of $249.99 with no coupon at checkout. Its the same price as the last drop either way you look at it.

Hi B. i don’t see the option to activate that $100 discount on checkout
J.316
That was a comment that was posted 19 weeks ago when we listed this product at the MAP price of $349.99 then offering a coupon at checkout for a $100 discount.
This time around we are running it at the $249.99 price up front. There will not be an additional $100 off on top of that as we are not listing at the MAP price.
Just ordered the M3 and have a mint pair of M2 gold to sell for $175

Hey, I'm interested I your m2s. Where can we talk?
Kevinlam1231
any messaging or email works for me
I was wanting this drop so bad since I missed the last one. But instead the XM3 were just released a week or two ago, is there anything in the near future for the those instead?
Would like to see a drop for the XM3 instead...
frondeur
I just assumed that's why this one came back, but I also assumed it would be lower than last time since with the new release there would be a desire for stock to go away. Well, you know what they say about assumptions....
frondeur
Agreed. I've lost interest with the announcement of the XM3. I do have a pair of QC35's now too. As others have said, noise cancellation is slightly better with QC35, but (to me) the Sony's sound noticeably better (I think I just like the extra bass). XM3 are supposedly a big bump in noise cancellation.
Also, I've seen the XM2 for around $200 (Rakuten: $250 + a $50 off coupon). There will probably be more deals on these in the next few months.
Make another one!
When will this drop likely to happen again?
Are these going to offered again soon? I'm planning on buying these headphones soon, and it would be great if I could get these (cheaper) through Massdrop than if I need to go elsewhere.
allenofthehills
I have come to US for a month if i get it for low price it would be great.
bradr can you give us any idea whether this drop will be active again because im holding out on another deal.
Hi there) Any info about new drop on that item? Thanks!
I have a strange problem with these... when I first fire them up and listen to Spotify off of my Galaxy S7, I get a "bell tone" like a reminder and then after another 20-30 minutes I typically get the same "bell tone" again. I have checked Sony's FAQ section, but I cannot find a solution... can anyone help?
Well.. Shit.

i donno man i cant say what happened. but the connection does look a bit dinky!
neiru37
Did you contact Sony? Maybe they will say you broke them, maybe not....
I've had them for a minute now Minute now. They sound great even over Bluetooth using the ldac coding for them. The battery life on them is actually pretty nice getting well over 30 hours worth. My only disliking is it's ability to make phone calls, the microphone works goog but it makes the others persons voice sound grainy statically. Over all a really great pair of headphones
Very happy with the earphones. Got the gold one from the last drop. It is beautiful. Even the cable is also of the same Color. Thanks.
How long until this drops again?
So these having been working really well for me. When I'm on a very shaky bus, whoever, I notice a rattling noise in the left ear cup. The loud sounds of the bus engine is drowned out by the NC but the rattling is noticeable which leads me to believe there might be some lose parts. Does anyone else experience this?

To bad :( It's really enjoying and mine is in both earcups... Have you heard of anyone else have these problem?
The recent 28th April's WH 1000xm2 headphones drop has just shipped on May 14th 2018 by USPS. It was scheduled on 18th May so it is 4 days early this time around.
My previous WH 1000xm2 that I ordered on March 3rd was shipped by Fedex and has been used heavily for 2 months now without any issue... This set is for my SO.

Alright never mind, mine ended up changing status from "USPS Currently Waiting" to en-route an hour before it arrived haha
froad
Yupe, If you take the USPS number and key into Fedex tracking, you'll see the actual package is by Fedex. USPS is waiting for Fedex to deliver to the destination post office before USPS starts delivery. I use the USPS tracking number and put it into Fedex tracking and see that package is almost reaching my City... And the package actually started shipping on May 12th.
Hey everyone waiting: Amazon's selling this for $300. Massdrops's price was $250. Amazon's bundling the SRS-XB2 ($50 bluetooth speaker) with this for $300.

So, there seems to be no problems with the item when purchased through focus camera via Amazon ?
Siddarth
No problems at all! Couldn't be happier!
So has anyone changed the earpads on these. If yes, which earpads did you use and what were the results?
CamBE2010
i'd like to know too! Would be perfect if these were slightly more comfortable.
Shipping Question: Hi, I am new to Massdrop and was able to get in on the April 28th WH1000xM2 sale. How do I get notified on the ship date and also the shipping method? I have a business trip on 5/28 and would to have these in time. Reading other comments from past drops it seems to take a very long time. Thanks!
I came here from slick deals on May 2 and this is my first time on mass drop... I'm confused is this a no longer valid drop? will it open again?
TacoFett
The most recent drop for this happened over the weekend. It was very limited (under 250 units) and closed within the first day. The speculation is there will be another drop sometime later in May.
I feel like it would have made more sense to set the price to "Add to cart to see price" (like, eg, literally every other store on the interwebs) rather than to display a price of $350 and have to tell half the commenters the price is actually $250.

You're kinda making my point: those who do not invest the minimal effort are unlikely to reap the benefit. One doesn't need to know the discount to bother scrolling.
The discount information is not "on the bottom" as you state. It's most 2 scrolls down on my devices, easily in the top 25% of the page. In also it's own green box (visual design cue to get attention) with the $100 discount in bold test (another visual cue to get attention).
As a practical matter, massdrop doesn't have to do anything - change or explain. Plenty of people figure it out on their own. Some who comment after initially missing the discount follow-up later to note they answered their own question. And these units seem to be selling just fine as things are.
mooncusser
Do the calculation, let me know what the corrected hourly rate is, please. Also, I reaped the benefits fine without reading the description ;-)
I'm just trying to give Massdrop employees a hint as to how to not waste their time on tedious nonsense. No skin off my back if they prefer to waste time posting the same explanation a dozen times all over the discussion section. As the stickied post makes painfully obvious, communication isn't their strong suit.
