I'm tempted to buy these but I just dropped $1100 on an HD 8XX. Hopefully they come back to DROP again. :)

Headfonics review of the Cleer NEXT https://headfonics.com/cleer-next-headphones-review/ "The Cleer NEXT represents a very good value headphone proposition. If you have a nice SET setup, prefer a vocal or mid-centric tuning but want to remain lush-free in terms of timbre, then the NEXT is very much worth a demo."

I really like the design of Next. But I'm not sure i will like the sound with more metallic... Or if price is lower than 500, probably i will pay only for the looking..

I did some research on these about a year ago. They are an interesting design; most similar to Focal headphones in how they work. Pole-less dynamic drivers with Magnesium coated diaphragms. This does not mean they sound like Focal, I have not heard them. The 16 ohm impedance is quite low for a dynamic headphone...so they will sound best with a headphone amp that has a very low output impedance. I do not believe the earpads are replaceable.

DROP has a track record for disposing of EOL products: Acoustic Research AR-H1, Audio Technica ATH-SR9, ATH-W Series, etc. I wonder if Cleer decided to discontinue production of their unsuccessful NEXT headphone, and DROP is taking advantage of the situation by offering us yet another FAILED product for a bargain price.

Though I wouldn't call ATH-W series "failed", you do have a point. Cleer is better known for cheap bluetooth headphones. The NEXT were supposed to compete with HD800. Looks like Cleer underestimated this market segment.

I wouldn't think that to be the case. The driver design on the Next is what the rest of their over the ear lineup is based off of. After watching the Louisville soccer match this past weekend against Pittsburgh and seeing their brand sponsorship on the LED signage, I would assume they're on a drastic growth curve and wanting to add to the audiophile lineup instead of retract.

if anyone really want to know any further about measurement side, there is one from oratory1990's eq-ing data https://github.com/jaakkopasanen/AutoEq/tree/master/results/oratory1990/harman_over-ear_2018/ may focus on black line(raw measurement) and blue target(harman) as baseline. also, many other headphones measurements are there. good for comparision. I know, someone will say FR can't explain that much of actual sound. but at least, it could be help for comparision.

Lemo connectors.... one of the worst there is if you want to change cable... an automatic $50 on top just for the connectors

because at that moment, I was trying to change cable to 4p-xlr from TRS 1/4" caused by changing headphone amp setups. I know, as you said, normally detaching cable is not that common. but it could be happen whatever case it is... if headphone really don't need to be detach then why manufacturer make it detachable? I like detachable headphone cable connectors. 2.5mm, 3.5mm, mini xlr, hirose 4pin(this thing is used in mrspeakers/danclarkaudio headphones). those types are OK or good but not Lemo on hd800 series.. I feel hd800 connector need too much force to detach and too small for handling that much force. so when direction of force for detaching goes slightly wrong or too hard, edge of connector could scratch near around surface. that's the case why I scratch wire mesh on ear cup of my hd800s by detaching cable...
