Product Description
Many headphone companies have tried their hand at planar magnetic drivers, but none have done it quite like HIFIMAN. The result of founder Dr. Fang’s PhD research at Columbia University, its driver technology has landed the company in TIME, Forbes, and CNET’s “The Audiophiliac,” and won it the CES Editors’ Choice Award Read More

Shipment delayed for a month and now it has been on its way for over 2 weeks. Thanks for the great customer service. Never again.

I'm normally pretty quiet on these things, but I'm confused by this price given that the 2020 version of the HE400i is running $169 on Amazon (and the old version is basically the price of this Drop variant).

So I was looking at the comparison chart for the HE5XX, HE4XX, Edition XX on the HE5XX page and see that the measurements for the HE4XX on here and that of the 5XX page differ quite a bit. On here I see a distinctive 10 dB drop in bass from 70 dB to 20 dB while on the 5XX page it looks very flat with only a ~2.5 dB roll off. The HE4XX plot on here does look like some compensation is done. I’m not sure which compensation would match these up (Harman Target, for example, generally asks for a 5 dB push which starts at 200 Hz).

I'm in the UK; haven't even used mine! Sold them on eBay - then customer complained of the issue most of you have mentioned; loose connection in the (right) ear cup. Retaining O ring has fallen off so now jack not even visible inside the ear cup, rendering these completely useless. Waiting for Drop to get back to me about a replacement or a refund? But so far, a massive waste of $220 (plus UK Tax!!) Not happy

I ordered at the end of November last year and received it at the post office today. I've always wanted this headphone, so I'm very happy to buy them for $ 120 this time.

They were on sale around Black Friday for that price. I just received mine today as well. So far so good.
Jan 8, 2021
Oh dang, I guess I missed it by quite a bit then. I ordered mine late nov for $200. Mine are good as well though.

Wow. After a month delayed shipping it's going to take over 2 weeks for delivery to California. According to the estimate I have to wait till the 11th, that is if there are no further delays. That's insane. It just sat in indianapolis for 3 whole days. More often than not, packages from china don't even take that long. Usps would have even been faster than fedex smart post. Even worse, I ordered the drop iems a few weeks after the black friday deal that said they were in stock and ready to ship. They didn't actually ship till weeks later after these cans finally shipped. They still currently have no estimated delivery time, sitting in indianapolis too! Very lame. So it's not just these cans, drop was shady across the board this season. Word of warning.

It is surelly not pleasant but you must also consider that we have a pandemic going on and they shipped everything under the holliday period. More than that the shipping cost is quite low (for me 9$ and I live in switzerland...). They don't have good shipping times and so on, but it is not that bad. My 4xx got shipped the 28th dez. they arrived today. not bad. But I was probably lucky, in any case, when ordering from Drop you should expect long shipping times

So mine have shipped but I'm very disappointed. Fedex smart post? Seriously after all the waiting we had to do for these and your use the cheapest slowest possible shipping method. Wow thanks drop. Never doing business with you again.

Naw. Doesn't justify all the jerking around they did to all the people who purchased an "in stock" product. And no customer service to be see other than an update page that was extremely vague. So forgive me for not giving them slack. If other companies can work as normal during a pandemic so can this company.

True, but I still had a worst expeience with amazon (was horrible), so for me Drop does not look as bad haha

I just received these today after a long wait. I was blown away by them. Great sound but most of all, they're fun. I'm appreciating my music in a whole new light. Now I'm wondering if I should have just gotten the the Sundara. But for $120 it's was an amazing deal.

How's the soundstage on these? And how does the sound signature compare to Grado's? I like Grado and was hoping for something close to that sound.
Jan 1, 2021
Grado are not ever imitated. They are unique with a colored sound signature that is presents the music in a most pleasurable way. I find the SR 60's were a great deal, but haven't found satisfaction in more expensive designs. But their cheapest headphones, say below $200 are a great deal if you like the sound.
