the black friday $200 discount caught me. i just received mine today. the carbon fiber cups are so beautiful and well made that it looks even more impressive than focal utopia. the sound right out of box without burn-in already wow me a lot. i got my hd800s 2 weeks ago and was listening to hd800s for the last 2 weeks regularly at home. as many have said, the soundstage of hd800s is so much wider but i like the tonality of the ether cx more. the bass is still not going very strong right now. i'll see how it runs in in the next 1-2 weeks.
the packaging seems quite silly that a very small box was stuff inside a much bigger box, with very few stuffing/protective material, for shipping. probably massdrop could just warp the small box and put a label for shipping to conserve some packing material and shipping cost. and this time it's shipped by ups to reach in just 5days. similar experience for the zeus and k10ua. but the esp/95x i ordered was shipped by ordinary parcel post. the esp/95x took over 2 weeks to me despite the highest shipping charge levied on me. no idea how massdrop select the shipping partners.
