Hey everyone! We are excited to officially launch our latest headset collaboration, the Drop + EPOS H3X Gaming Headset. Improving on EPOS' H3 headset, this closed-back headset is tuned to offer a more reference-like frequency response, as well as features an upgraded hybrid headband and easier-to-use cable. Ostensibly designed for gaming, the headset also is perfect for video/conference calls thanks to its natural sound isolation. Also be sure to check out Techne's review: Techne H3X Review

Would be an instant purchase if these were wireless :(
UPDATE 11.30am PT: The issue is fixed. Thank you for your patience! Quick update. As of 10am PT there is a Shopify outage which affects our 'Add to Cart' function. We are looking into this and will update here as soon as this should work.

The EPOS PC37X and PC38X are open-back headphones, and this is closed /sealed. That will be useful in co-op offices or other spaces with other people or droning machinery, but will come with some trade-offs to the depth of soundstage and likely some resonance. Sonically, I bet it will be positioned between the existing EPOS and Koss models offered here on Drop, but it might be priced near the PC37X (possibly use the same driver, but more engineering has to go into making closed-backs not sound bad). It will probably have pretty high sensitivity, so it won’t need more than a small amp or a built-in amp (like the ones in laptops or game controllers, though external amps will still be of higher quality). As far as extra features go, I bet it will be similar to the PC37X: wired for better sound quality (bluetooth gaming usually just doesn’t sound good when you add a mic to the mix, though some non-Bluetooth proprietary wireless setups sound better like the EPOS GSP670 and Audeze Penrose, they also cost a significant amount), not have any surround/spatial DSP built in, feature a non-detachable mic that can be flipped up to mute (and get out of the way), and a volume dial that hopefully doesn’t wobble. It looks like it’s all black, too. Those are my predictions, we’ll have to wait and see what is actually offered.
That graph is looking a bit odd. I'd love some confirmation as to if the final units will have that sort of 400hz to 2k elevation that the 5128 graph is showing.

The rest looks fine. The graph looks like it hhas about a 5db over Harman bass shelf and a bit of a 200hz dip. The upper mids look a bit recessed but in a satisfying amount and the treble looks pretty balanced. But the mids look so elevated it's odd.

Will have to hear it I guess to see if it sounds like it measures.

Price wise it will be under $100, but I'm guessing $80. Which could be very good depending on the mids.

Edit: With the new graph posted vs the H3 (rather than the old graph not compared to anything else) on the same 5128, thanks to the help of someone who I'm not sure if they want to be named dropped, I have mostly confirmed that the graphs oddness is from positional variance. If you look at the Sound Guys H3 graph which looks more "normal" that is with the headphone pulled more forwards and this graph from Jude of head-Fi is pulled more backwards on the Hats. You can also really hear the positional variance when wearing the normal H3. Would love to see a graph showing this positional variance of the H3X on the 5128. The graph with positioning in mind looks fairly promising.

Oh, I see what you were talking about on Twitter now. Indeed, I think this headphone might be sensitive (tunable?) depending on how you place it around your ears. Placement sensitivity is indeed more common for closed headphones, but yeah I had to find the “sweet spot” for some of my headphones.

I have the Sennheisers PC38X, i understand there isn’t much info to go off of yet, but are these essentially a budget version of the PC38x? Seems the biggest difference is it’s closed back so I’m curious if this is just a different version of the 38x
The PC38x is an H6 Pro/GSP500/600 driver in a housing that is closer to the PC37x housing. These are a modified version of the H3 headset from EPOS. Different driver and housing vs the PC38x fully different headset.

The question is, how affordably priced.
if you gotta ask, you cant afford it.... and the pc38x are $140 so id assume it would be less than that if theyre saying its affordable and comparing to that model. which $100ish for a nice headset sounds pretty reasonable to me. drop has bungled some things pretty badly before though so who knows lol
Since its a variation of the EPOS H3 it should be $99 or less. I'd bet $80.

By "upgraded acoustics", do they mean there is an upgrade in the drivers used?
"Upgraded Acoustics" I'd take as in changed rear or front dampening and other housing changes and possible pad changes. I wouldn't expect any driver changes minus a few small mods to it that don't change the driver but only add on to it. Like common felt or sticker mods at most.
