Ok, I just got the package at home.
I can't find the security code (anti-counterfit code to be put here: http://www.soundmagic.com.cn/en/Customer/Security.html)
And they had greasy fingerprints on the "cups" (shiny plastic part of them)
How's that my order shows this:
Status: Shipped via USPS on May 27th, 2014
Wasn't it supposed to ship almost 3 weeks ago with the last batch?
Just FYI everybody on the second half of the orders, here's what support told me 5 days ago:
"The second shipment's been delayed slightly. We should be expecting it early next week, at which point your order will go out. Apologies on the delay."

The second batch of these literally shipped out today. Sorry for the lack of updates about the delays, we'll work on doing better in the future.

HI! Is there any new drop planned soon? (hp100 or hp150)
Been Almost a Month!!!! Are these things on the slow boat from China????
My headphones (from the first lot that were shipped out) arrived in Canada on Friday, for what it's worth.
Have the second half arrived yet?
How many were shipped? I'm 16th on the queue, still not shipped.
Hey everyone, Great news! The first half of our order of the SoundMAGIC HP100 Headphones has arrived in our warehouse earlier today, and we have subsequently ship all the headphones within the shipment out within the day. The second half of the order should be on its way to us within the next couple of days. We'll be updating everyone again once that happens. Cheers!

These headphones are taking way to long to ship out, I hate to seem impatient and am imposing no blame to you personally but I do have a deadline that I need these by otherwise I will be contacting paypal and buying some other headphones
seriously can we have an update on the timeframe for this delivery?
So.... where's my stuff?
Hey everyone, We have just submitted our order of the SoundMAGIC HP100 Headphones. Massdrop is a platform that helps members within the community shop together at wholesale pricing. It’s pretty incredible that we managed to get 35 people in this drop within the 7 days it had been active. Now that the bulk order has been placed, our vendor is preparing the order for shipment. In the meantime, we will also be preparing our warehouse to handle the reshipment of the product to everyone as soon as the order arrives. We are just waiting for confirmation on the shipment schedule from our vendor now, we will be sure to update again here once that’s available. Cheers!
How do you compare this with Sennheiser HD 428? Please help ><
I am interested to see / hear what the Audiophile world is like =P
How do these compare to the ATH-M50(x) and the ATH-900X?

Glad to see HP100 drop here. HP100 sounds like DT770 in general, except with a hint of sparkle but not harsh treble . Sounds very spacious and very good imaging and presentation. Solid bass response yet not bleeding into other range. Now you're probably think of it might has recessed mid? weak vocal? You can never be that wrong buddy :P
I have ATH M50's as well and the M50's sound tinny and weak compared to HP100's. Comfort-wise between these two sets the HP100 wins hands down. I'm sure there are a lot of audiophiles out there that know the technical differences and everyone has different tastes and whatnot, but I'll put it to you in a reasonably intelligent layman's perspective - HP100 is hands down the best pair of cans I've listened to and my kids and wife love listening to them. I run mine through a Schiit stack and they sound great. I have found that I need to Eq them to get them to sound just like I like them, but they sound great out of the box.

other thing, do you think it's better to get an amp for them or they sound decent enough without one?
Pedro
They sounds pretty good without one but also improve noticeably with good one.
What are the experiences here comfort-wise? I see mixed reviews on head-fi for comfort. I guess it depends on the size of your ear and whether your ears hit the driver grill. Can anyone do with a pair do a quick measurement - the diameter of the opening (inside of the earpad) and the depth from (naturally compressed on head) earpad to driver grill ?
Does anyone know how these compare to the M50's soundwise?
Hey everyone, Happy to report that all the orders from the drop have been shipped out right on schedule! Thanks again for the support guys, and please feel free to share your experience of the headphones with the rest of the group afterwards. If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, just email us at support@massdrop.com :)

Has the order actually gone out the door? My tracking number just has the "electronic documents" received message.

I received mine 2 days ago. USPS' tracking seems screwy.
Hey everyone, Great news! Our order of SoundMAGIC HP100 has just arrived in our warehouse. Our warehouse staff are working on breaking down the bulk shipment and repackage them into individual orders before shipping them out to everyone. We are aiming to have everything shipped out first thing tomorrow. Once your order is shipped out, you’ll be getting a notification email from us with shipment tracking information. Cheers!
Hey everyone, We have just been informed that our order of SoundMAGIC HP 100 has been shipped out by our vendor. The shipment is estimated to arrive our warehouse on early next week. We have already alert our warehouse staff about this shipment, so we should be able to process the bulk shipment upon arrival, and repackage them into individual orders before shipping them out to everyone very quickly. Cheers!
Hey everyone, We have submitted our order of 13 SoundMAGIC HP100 last Thursday. Massdrop is a platform that helps members within the community shop together at wholesale pricing. It’s pretty incredible that we managed to get 13 people within the 7 days this drop had been active. Now that the bulk order has been placed, our vendor is preparing the order for shipment. In the meantime, we will also be preparing our warehouse to handle the reshipment of the product to everyone as soon as the order arrives. We are just waiting for confirmation on the shipment schedule from our vendor now, we will be sure to update again here once that’s available. Cheers!
Crap I can't believe I missed this again! Next time for sure these will be mine!
how would these compare to my srh840s and srh940s... and yes i have both of them..... i want to know if these will surpass my shures...
I'm not sure what happened but I live in Northern Indiana and was the first person to join the drop. Why is it everyone else has gotten theirs already? It was shipped out from your fulfillment center on the 11th and it takes 6+ days to get to Indiana by way of Columbus, OH and it says it's now somewhere in Michigan. What the hell is going on? Why is it I've never had anything shipped with UPS Mail Innovations? We paid $10 (USPS Priority rates are cheaper most likely) and got this third rate shipping?
So, my sound is off in the left ear. Should I be contacting SoundMagic directly, or emailing someone directly from Massdrop?
I will say that the overall packaging, comfort, and quality of everything about these headphones is way below the 900X. It's all worse, point blank. I'm judging strictly on what I hear.
Got mine today, testing them out against my ATH-900X right....now. I paid roughly the same price for both of these sets, listening through an Aune T1 with Genelex Gold Lion tube. Switching back and forth between songs, I can give a real general overview so far. I miss the airyness of the 900X. But everything below the high end sounds more natural to me. I enjoy the bass I've been missing with the 900X. With these I would prefer to bump the treble, with the 900X I prefer to bump the bass. As an overall listening setup I'd have to give the more satisfying nod to these. I'm anxious to try something along the lines of a Beyer 990 against these, and then maybe some HE-400's. Maybe the 900X plus the Aune T1 was too warm of a setup? This combo feels right, def less fatiguing (I don't hate bright setups though) but not as airy to me. I want airy without having to EQ some bass back in! Gonna keep listening!
Anyone know what's a good dac/amp to go with these headphones with a budget somewhere between 200$ and 300$ (or not too far from it). There has been many available recently on massdrop, but I have no idea if some would work better than others with these headphones. I tried to google it but found few interesting info, or no clear choice at least.

I'd agree with spinkham on the ODAC/Objective2 and the Schitt stack (Magni/Modi). My Bravo Audio Ocean worked pretty well, though it doesn't have a DAC. I use the FiiO E09k+E07k combo right now as a portable rig and that works well too.

building a grubDAC is a great matchup to the Bravo.
Funny. I made the suggestion to put these up months back as I was interested after doing a ton of research. I ended up paying over $200 from someone in HK but don't regret it. These really are very good sounding, comfortable and well built headphones for the money. As reference, I also have a pair of the popular V Moda M80 and these are better in every way aside from looks and portability. I got better separation, detail, and crisper highs and far deeper sub bass. These aren't "basshead" phones but definately don't lack it. They are quite balanced sounding to me although you'll read grumpy audiophiles say they have exaggerated bass but they seem to like music with very little bass for some strange reason.<br />These are the perfect HiFi headphones for those not wanting to drop $500.
Anyone compared these to the Fischer FA-003? I have the original FA-003 (non-Ti version) and am fairly happy with their sound at work. The comfort could be improved, though, and they get blown away by HD650s at home.
