Product Description
A truly immersive listening experience is hard to find—and so is the wood from the rare Asada Zakura Japanese cherry tree. Using one to create the other, Audio-Technica has unveiled the ATH-AWAS: a pair of headphones housed in striking red Asada Zakura wood to suppress unwanted resonance for clear, natural acoustics Read More

I preordered these from crutchfield and returned them a week later. The cups are so beautiful they almost dont seem real, the rest of the build is such a nightmare that its a sin. 90% thin, cheap plastic THAT CLICKS AND CREAKS LIKE HELL. The headband bars are attached by ONE tiny wood screw per side as you can see in the pic, so that moves and makes noise too. Cables attach into a hole in the cups that acts as an acoustic chamber for microphonics caused by stiff zippy cables (GL finding aftermarkets with A2DC). Pads are a very thin "protein leather" that were super sweaty and I cannot imagine would last very long. They did sound fantastic if you looked straight ahead and kept completely still.

What's the point of Drop if these are offered at list price? There is nothing different about this offer (and folks, the headphones always come with two cables - one balanced and one that isn't). These are very well reviewed headphones, but they're available everywhere else at the same price. Shame on Drop!

'Members who purchase earn 12591 Drop Rewards Points'

This is a trend now, Drop doesn't offer immediate discount, and people are blind
While I definitely agree with that in reference to all the full MSRP ChiFi releases Drop has been doing lately I still firmly believe this is mostly a MAP issue. These types of drops occurred previously on items known to be extremely hardcore on advertised price and Mass/Drop would include a cable, or a case or credit as a bonus on items that typically only see a discount in a dealer on a per customer basis. Been into audio for almost 30 years, MAP and distribution agreements in audio predate my time. Quad comes running to the forums every time Drop has some grey market gear to sell, as do Audeze (who really backstabbed Drop BTW) and others. These brands are trying to preserve a premium image, you don't get that when your gear's list price gets obliterated.

There is a nice write up on Headfonia concerning these. My soft spot for planers just too large. Sennheiser draws me for dynamics’s.

Anyone know how these compare to ATH-W5000 or ATH-WP900? Yep, I have a thing for AT wood series.

I am just nuts over high-end AT cans. My wallet, less nuts.

In fairness the Drop collaboration series are the values here, usually. Drop's been moving away from direct discounts in favor of credits, which obviously is not why most of us visit the site.
Yeah, what ever happened to the group buys where it’d be “5 more people needed to get X price?” Those were good, I miss those.

Interesting, but yeah. Is this the update to the closed back wood series? Looks like they finally did away with the wing design

It’s like $1399 everywhere it’s sold, so I don’t understand how the drop is supposed to be enticing.
