The Drop prices are so close to street prices that it’s often insulting. There’s no point, many times, even checking Drop...

"Where they improve on the Flow Series is in the soundstage: we added partially fenestrated earpads and reduced driver dampening to even the tone and minimize reverberation. Now featuring new, carefully selected earcups". Also the were on sale a few times for 50$ off

Agreed. However, Drop’s warranty claims are often problematic. By the way, I wonder how would a power-inefficient headphone like these would perform on an OTL tube amp?

Are these closer to the aeon or aeon 2?

I would be very grateful if some of you who live in Europe could share your experience regarding shipping time of the Aeon Closed X. Drop customer service told me that it may take between 3 and 6 weeks for delivery to Europe, but I read from a couple of Drop users that the delivery was significantly shorter. I would like to have a more accurate idea of what is in practice the delivery time since Drop informs the client that the headphones have been shipped. Many thanks in advance for your feedback as it may greatly help me to decide whether joining or not the June run.

Your welcome! To be precise. I placed my order on 29 May (Saturday). UPS picked up the package on Monday 31st and it was delivered to me on Friday 4th June at noon. It actually took 5 days, sorry for my mistake. But it's still very fast I think ;)

Got these today. So far for the hour or so I've been using they've been comfortable. I definitely need to look into a DAC though, through my scarlett 212 that I was driving my 58x's with it sounds a little distorted or roboty at it's higher volumes and I bet it's mainly the amp. Would the Schitt stack be good enough to drive these or what would you all suggest pairs well that wouldn't break the bank? (I want these to have enough power to drive but I don't wanna throw 1k on an amp or anything) EDIT: I would say maybe it's more like noise/static that I notice especially in vocals with the scarlet 212. If I go straight through laptop, I don't notice it on the same level but volume is at a quiet unenjoyable level especially to be using closed headphones.

Also I would prefer something that also allows an XLR microphone to be plugged in for direct monitoring, maybe I could hook up my scarlett 212 to whatever I end up getting to get the direct mic monitoring but unsure of that.

Ended up getting the Grace x Drop DAC and 789 AMP from drop and these are indeed better than the jubilee's and fix the crackling issue I had with the Scarlet 212.

Does anybody know why Drop has moved forward the shipping date for the Dan Clark Aeon Closed X ?. Shipping was scheduled for 30 June but it has been changed to 31 May

I live in EU indeed. Just checked tracking, it has arrived in Germany. Waiting for the transit to my country.

Many thanks for the info, it seems that the customer service takes a very conservative approach when giving deadlines, and that in practice the delivery is much faster. 🙂

Has anyone converted the connector to Balanced? I hope there are 4 wires once the 1/4 inch connector is removed, instead of 3.
