Without the extra pads? So disappointing....

Drop's new business model of offer less at a higher price must mean they hired a new bigwig who more than likely drove his prior company into bankruptcy but convinced the board of directors at drop that they can increase revenue while simultaneously reducing expenses. Hey Drop, don't be too surprised when you're on the brink of bankruptcy next. If you happen to work for Drop then now might be a really good time to start polishing up that resume..... You're going to need it soon.

For $199US+shipping you are on the receiving end of a poor tasting joke from Drop if you’ve ordered these.

Apparently these were $150 at some point? I definitely would've taken a chance on these at that price.

I have T50RP MK2s and didn't enjoy the sound at all. They are really comfortable after I bought a leather head strap and leather alpha pads. Since I was so financially deep into them I bought a mod kit to make them sound better. I tried a few mods using foam, felt, and clay and they made them sound better. They still sound like crap overall though. I was debating going down the T50RP rabbit hole and try other versions, but I have 4 headphones in the same price range that are hands down better than the Fostex so I'm done with them. The four headphones that are better are the Monolith M1060, Meze 99 Noir, Sennheiser HD6XX, and the 1more Triple Drivers. I even chose to sit on a 7 hour plane ride with the Koss Porta Pros over the T50RPs. I think these are all online hype success and companies and individuals are just trying to make a buck off of the hype. I could be wrong about some of the other versions, but I wasn't sold enough to dive deeper.

These will not get you better sound... look elsewhere (HE4XX). however. These actually are worth it if you send on over to modhouse to get turned into Argon. The pads they come with at $80 or so and go extremely well on the 4XX and you save $30 there. The argon are pretty incredible headphones (for closed backs) and don’t sound like the T50RP. I was quite unhappy with my Dekoni blue myself and I felt like their pads were their only redeeming feature. Though, when I bought mine they came with two sets of pads making the value much better.

Can an Audioquest Dragonfly Red power these running through an iOS device (iPad)

Yes that would work well, plenty of power in a dragonfly. Battery in the iPad might not last long though

I’m hoping someone at drop accidentally typed $199 rather than $139 and that this all just a big misunderstanding...

I'm assuming they now don't come with the velour pads based on the details.

So $30 higher than a previous drop, no extra pads either. Come on Drop. This is getting ridiculous

I really want to buy my first pair of planars. I’m not a basshead I actually like to hear details but I don’t want the bass to be left unnoticed. I’ve been looking at these guys but I could afford Sundaras which I hear great things. 150 difference. What do you think?

I love my Hifiman 400i and 4XX and are cheaper than these. I wish I could afford Sundara.

400i is awesome too. If you are in USA, you might get a open-box for a lesser price ($130 or thereabouts). I have heard great things about 4xx too, though there are some complaints about its build (scared me enough to not buy them, and go for 400i).
