Hey Everyone, We're excited to say that we shipped over 500 pairs of HD8XX, so let the obsessive tracking-refreshing begin! For those who don't have a tracking number yet, hang in there for just another day or so, our warehouse staff are working as safely and quickly as they can. Making the HD8XX project a reality is the result of over five years of negotiation, countless tweaks and adjustments, and finally we're at the finish line. We're so excited to get these headphones into your hands and hear your impressions. We've been doing this long enough to know that nearly every audiophile product launch has its fair share of discussion and debate. From the infamous "HD58x is really just the HD650S with foam removed" videos, to the accusations that the "THX 789 AAA measurements claimed are physically impossible". What we've learned from these experiences is that the community has many shared and contrary beliefs about a product and the best way to settle them is to simply ship the product and let people's ears decide. For over 9 years we've worked tirelessly to make great audiophile products. Our track-record has shown that these efforts have caused dramatic changes in the audiophile industry. From the HD6XX making audiophile quality headphones accessible to the masses, to our THX amps changing the standard of low-noise amplification, and the countless-other category defining products we've released, our team and process has been able to consistently provide exceptional value and choice to the community. We're confident that the Drop + Sennheiser HD 8XX headphones will continue this tradition. Thanks for your support and helping make this product a reality.

Any chance of more of the Zeos codes? I am still salty that you all just shut it down before the last day.

Asking for the second time. Any more codes coming or are you just going to leave a bad impression of Drop forever for all those folks who didn't get to use the code even though they were supposed to. The excuse of sorry high demand does not really fly when you were excited about a purchase but had to get the funds in order BEFORE THE CUTOFF DATE.

Are these headphones compatible with this Amp? iFi audio ZEN CAN Signature 6XX Amp | Audiophile | Amps | Headphone Amps | Drop I know they have the EQ button for the 600s but wonder if anyone's tried the 800s on it. I like the 600s for mixing but want to upgrade. Between Beyerdynamic and Sennheiser's models at this value point. My Scarlett interface works well driving my headphones, but I like checking mixes on Amps and other devices to get accurate mix tests.

$162 of my $200 reward expired... thought it worked like a gift card, but nope 1 year from purchase and not delivery :( Sure it's my fault for not reading fine print, but anyone else feel like rewards should not expire in 1 year, or they should at least send out a reminder and/ or at the very least make it obvious when they will expire when you look up your reward balance. Or you know somewhere? Anywhere? ... LAME! BTW the Headphones are fine. They are built well, Not too heavy and play well with tubes.

1100 dollars, inferior sound and no balanced cable. Drop has lost their collective minds. I thought it was supposed to be 700US? Kind of insane pricing for bass boosted junk. I hope noone is falling for this.

Even in the states it makes zero sense. 1300 for the original HD800S within a year of it releasing and it came with a balanced cable. Drop simps have lost their minds. This thing is an HD800 in soundstage only. Not a sublimely analytical neutral masterpiece like the originals.

I'm with you on that, DROP isn't what used to be. Gone are the days of the 6xx; THX 789; Focal Elex..., where you could get good products with good savings relatively to MSRP. Massdrop was better than Drop. Take Singxer SA-1 - 599$ on Drop, in Shengzen audio - 599$; Meze Empyrian - 2999$ on Drop, in Europe -2999€ with much better customer service and faster. I think that the business idea that started AND MADE massdrop is no longer in place.

I'll jump on this when they go down to $699. Until that time, I will wait like a wolf that set the ambush for its victim.

I got screwed by the pre-mature termination of the ZEOS code. Or so I thought. Someone sold me their 8XX with Dekoni Fenestrated pads for $600. They removed the JDM "makes my car go faster" stickers inside driver saving me the work of de-Dropifying. Who's laughing now, Drop? Bargain of the century. I would have bought the HD800S at full price if I knew how good this was. I'm not even comparing it to your midfi offerings. I mean compared to my "girls". The Fostex TH909 and ZMF Verite Closed. Stop dropping the ball, get them sub-$1k and ride the gravy train instead of this schizophrenic stuff.

Zeos had a promo code that reduced the price down to $700. Thus one of the reasons why on the used market you can see some selling as cheap as $600. What many have found out by now is that taking off the earpads and removing the inner sticker fabric turns these back into 800s for the most part. Hence what he meant by de-dropifying.

Here is the Drop's official statement at launch day. Drop were planning to increase the price to $1200+. Hey Friends, Tomorrow morning at 9am PST, we are releasing the DROP + Sennheiser HD 8XX. This headphone is the result of hundreds of thousands of community posts and four years of collaboration between the teams at DROP and Sennheiser. Analyzing discussions around the HD 800S, we saw clear mandates from the community around bass extension and midrange balance. The HD 8XX incorporates two novel changes to accommodate those mandates. Where the HD 800S uses a single resonator, Sennheiser developed a dual resonator system for the HD 8XX, creating bass extension down to 10hz (+5db @ 10hz vs 800 S). Sennheiser’s team, lead by Jermo Koehnke, reached the bass solution pretty quickly, but our goals for the midrange proved demanding... bordering impossible. After significant research, Sennheiser reached a solution; altered acoustic impedance in the transducer's dampening material to smooth the FR from 2.5k to 8k. This means the transducer in the HD 8XX is unique, it’s a new ring driver. The HD8XX goes live tomorrow at 9am PST with 3000 units available, shipping in November. These 3000 units represent the full production we anticipate for 2021. We’ll make more available if the capacity increases, but this launch is the only guaranteed HD 8XX availability until 2022. Launch pricing for the HD 8XX is $1100 and you’ll receive $200 worth of drop points (20,000 points) with purchase. For future units, HD 8XX pricing will increase to $1200+.
