Product Description
Nothing compares to the sound of a true speaker system, but BLON’s BL-30 headphones come pretty close. That’s because they’re equipped with huge 70-millimeter drivers and an open-back metal mesh cavity—two key components that replicate the performance and sonic characteristics of a true loudspeaker Read More

Looks like we've got ship notifications going out. Hopefully they're the corrected version. Guess I'll find out soon enough.

Looks like more delay. I'm still thinking this is because the headband is being updated to something that actually works for people with heads larger than a grape.

I've already been waiting this long, might as well ride it out to the end.

OK, got mine from Linsoul just one day apart from the Dekoni nuggets from Drop (which is a great thing).

As I was very aware already, I had to bend the heck out of the piece of metal they call headband. It actually does not look like a machine bent that piece of metal anyway, since it is off center. After almost flattening the top I was able to bend the edges where the yokes attach to a decent angle, enough that the bottom part of the earcup seals around the bottom of my ear.
search
Again due to large head, I have the yokes all the way to their limit, so I cannot fit the original headband padding, otherwise they just don't reach, so I had to remove the padding and put 2 Dekoni nuggets in its place.
search
Now for the sound: It works OK with low-powered equipment, like a phone or a computer, but these guys need power to shine. When I connected them to my Dark Voice (with a Sovtek pre-amp tube and a Winged-C power tube, with much more low end than the original tubes) the sound stage opened up a lot more, and I was rewarded the more power I gave it. I also tested it on my Schiit Magnius, but only through the single-ended connection, which is not the most powerful, but it sounded great. I will get one more Hart Audio cable adapter so that I can connect it to the XLR connection for good measure. At any rate, the sound signature reminds me a lot of the HD-6xx, which I auditioned side-by-side, where the low end is definitely rolled off, but the treble is also rolled off at the top and that helps protect from potential sibilant "S" and "SH" that I am not a fan of. If you like harder-hitting low bass I don't think this is for you.....I prefer the sound of my Planar headphones like the HifiMan Deva or the Monoprice M1060C (modded open), specifically for the faster deeper low end, but I find these very interesting for the price. Now to look for better pads and maybe a more professionally made headband, or adapt one, since the limitation of the rotation of the support is very challenging!

Hi @PolygonBronson , it seems that it is 4 inches as you can see here:
search
But consider that the metal around the speaker is actually wider than the yoke distance, hence the problem with the earcups lack of rotation.
search
So, because of that, maybe having some sort of round yoke arms that would go all the way to 4 1/2 inches for example, with an added extension to reach the connectors of the earcups, would help the yoke arms clear the borders of the earcups and rotate properly so that they could comfortably reach the bottom of a normal human ear, without needing to change pads.
search
Will look for other pads anyway, but so far I have been enjoying the sound of them just like this.

Like everyone else, having a fitting issue, except I have no expectation to see a refund for such a poorly developed product. I'm of a mind to trash the headband and print my own, use dekoni nuggets, and develop my own mounting method for the metal rods. This is truly terrible across the board, and can't recommend BLON if they won't remedy this situation, for any product, and I love the BL-05, and BL-03.

Is there an official reply somewhere to corroborate that?

No official reply I've been able to find. But Linsoul has responded to customer reviews with info saying that BLON is working on a fix, and all customers who have the headband issue who bought from Linsoul will receive the hardware to fix. This is also likely why we're seeing this delay, product is getting fixed.

Looks like we've got a shipping delay. Wonder if this is because of QA/QC problems.

I just got the email too. I got a production and shipping delay from ThieAudio as well for my Monarch. I suppose patience is a virtue? lol

I'm totally cool waiting. I just don't want this to be one of those drops where we wait multiple months only to find an email about getting refunds because something went pear shaped; effectively getting a big fat middle finger. Now, on the other hand, I've gotten these notices in the past only to find my product show up the next day. So, there is a possibility it is just them being proactive because the rage that the customer base throws when delays come into play.

I purchased the BLON BL-30 and had the same gimbal problem that others have mentioned. These headphones are poorly designed and simply don't fit right. Linsoul promised a full refund if I sent it back. I asked if I would get a refund on my shipping cost. They said yes. I sent it back. The USPS cost to China was $77.50 USD. I sent them the tracking number and receipt. I received word today that they'll give me store credit only instead of a refund. I replied saying this was not what we agreed on and demanded a refund. Now I'm wondering if I'll ever receive my full refund for the headphones. I'll post an update. I would strongly caution against doing business with Linsoul.

I was gonna blame Linsoul, but I'm putting the blame on Blon,they'll never receive another dollar from me,with that said once I motivate myself I'll figure out how to print a 3D yoke that works or not.

hi im having fitting issue problem is the headphone needs your head to be really square. Anyone having the same problem? The clamping is too loose.

Thanks, I did a reddit post trying to get help. The Audeze LCD universal yoke looks like it could work but not sure. https://www.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/klxup5/need_dimensions_of_audeze_lcd_x_or_2_or_3_etc/

Looked at that yoke too,definitely gonna need spacers to clear that lip on the earphone ,drop should have brought this stock and redesigned the yokes they would have had a hit on their hands oh well it is what it is.

150ohm impedance, driver pics leaked and looks like they aren't buying like an old stock of rare Sony 70mms ~ Seems to be a Biodynamic driver though
