These are a remade version of the anniversary K702s iirc. They are considerably cheaper than their Austrian made counter part and are widely known for having an insane sound stage. I see all these people posting about them with a lot of speculation and it doesn't look like many of them actually own them or have heard them. The build quality is fine IMO. They are certainly not built like a tank but, when you're making a 200$ version of a 500$ headphone I think it's to be expected. That said they won't just break from a drop and my pair are still the same as they were when I got them. I do think that they are great headphones at this price for music but, where they really shine is in gaming. The sound stage really pushes these far and away from any other set I've had for gaming. You can hear everything in any direction and can tell that not only is there someone behind and to your right but, even if they're above or below you. It gives a sense of immersion in any game allowing you to just direction and distance in 3 dimensions more than I have personally heard. If you're looking for headphones solely for music then I think you can probably do better elsewhere at this price like something from Sennheiser. If you play a lot of games and want something that's also good for music then I think you'll love the K7XX. They're also insanely light making them great for long sessions and the earpads and cable are replaceable too when they wear out. The only critique that I have is that the flat headband isn't great and it may be better than the bumps on the other K7s but, if someone sold a padded upgrade then I would buy it in a second. Once I get it positioned just right it's fine and I don't even notice it but, still. Anyways, you can usually find these on Amazon for way faster delivery, although they're usually about 20$ more than here.

Are these just out of stock or did they meet the same fate as the TR-X00's?

With so much more competition, these should have been reduced to $150 by now. That and the suspect build quality makes these a no go.

Yes, if this unit is supposed to replicate AKG K-702, the price has to be less than USD 138 to compete with prices here in Europa -- or is this unit supposed to replicate AKG K712 /pro?

Had my pair for just over half a year and the right speaker keeps cutting out until I tap / shake the headset, anyone know how to fix this?

It seems it's fairly common that a solder point breaks loose. It's a simple fix if you got a soldering iron and helps if you got the solder too but you might get by without the solder. I think I watched this video to get at the wire. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HYH6zJ9sVM&t=82s. for the most part open it up and look for the wire that's barely hanging on and touch the hot iron to it for a second to two. i wouldn't recommend it but you could even try just tapping the loose wire into position as well. just need it to be firmly touching the solder joint.

stuffing a 1/2-1/4 inch of felt in the hinge prevents the squeeking

Is anyone else waiting to hear about dispatch from this? Shipping estimate was December 27th but still no update, contacting support was utterly unhelpful...

Mine is still unchanged today, I guess they could have sold more than they have, which I feel would be massively unethical, it's reasonable to expect shipment on a sensible timescale and moving the shipping date half a year isn't reasonable, knowing what you have in stock and only letting that many be purchased is very easy to implement, I have a small business which includes online retail and I can manage (mostly) automated stock control! I will be cancelling if my dispatch estimate moves significantly, it's not cheaper enough than elsewhere to be putting up with that much messing around, for me anyway.

Seems like just about every other MD collaboration has gone on sale recently or experienced a permanent price drop. These and the Meze cans appear to be the exception. So, when can we expect to see these for $160? On another note, what happened to the blue option on these? That seems to have been a one and done drop. Can't be that difficult to substitute two strips of plastic...so why didn't those ever come back? Why not bring them back at a special discounted price? 😂
