Product Description
The world’s first wireless headphone with a high-bandwidth Bluetooth audio codec, a THX AAA™ amplifier, and phase-correct planar-ribbon drivers (a combination we call the 3P Signal Path), Panda puts you closer to your music than ever before—wherever life takes you.
Audio at its Purest, Free of Wires

Great-sounding audio shouldn’t require inconvenient cables. Now it doesn’t. A collaboration between Drop and THX, Panda is the first headphone to deliver an audiophile listening experience free of wires. To achieve this groundbreaking full-system sound, we created a new standard for wireless audio: the 3P Signal Path. This technology is a combination of three key elements: a high-bandwidth Bluetooth audio codec, a zero-distortion THX AAA™ amplifier, and phase-correct planar-ribbon drivers. The result? The world’s lowest levels of distortion in a wireless headphone, delivering audio in its purest form. And that’s not all—Panda also comes equipped with a 30-hour battery life, two built-in microphones, and an intuitive control system for adjustments on the go.

Note: Quantities of the Drop + THX Panda Wireless Headphone are limited on Drop.com. At checkout,  you can add an optional Drop Panda Boom Mic (+ $49). This is a preorder. Units are expected to ship by January 8th, 2021.

The THX AAA™ Difference

Panda is the world’s first headphone with THX AAA™ technology. Using patented feed-forward error-correction topology, this technology reduces harmonic, intermodulation, and crossover distortions by 20 to 100 times—currently the world’s lowest levels of distortion. And no matter how loud you listen, the THX AAA™ amplifier can drive Panda to comfortable listening volumes, with headroom to spare.

The Power of Planar-Ribbon Drivers

Promising high-fidelity audio that’s better than conventional headphones, planar-ribbon drivers are on the rise. What makes them so special? They feature a series of evenly spaced magnets on both sides of the diaphragm that act on a flat plane—hence the name “planar”—which results in carefully tuned phase-correct sound. Thanks to the evenly suspended diaphragm material between permanent magnetic fields, planar-ribbon drivers are extremely resistant to distortion. They’re also super responsive and have a hyper-realistic sound signature that you’ll notice straight away.

All-Day Comfort, All-Week Battery

It’s not only sound that sets Panda apart. Boasting a 30-hour power reserve, Panda exceeds the battery life of most major ANC headsets. A full charge takes just 2 hours—with around 3 hours of power on a 10-minute quick charge. Backed by the latest Bluetooth 5.0 QCC5124 chipset, Panda supports LDAC, aptX HD, aptX Adaptive, AAC, and SBC codecs. If you need to take a call, the headphones feature two built-in mics compatible with the latest voice assistants. Courtesy of the closed-back design, Panda offers strong acoustic isolation—and no digital signal processing to hide a poor acoustic design or muddy the sounds the creators intended. Finished with plush foam earpads wrapped in breathable protein leather, Panda weighs just 375 grams, making it easy to take on the go.

About THX

You may know THX from the goosebump-inducing “Deep Note” played before many blockbuster films, but the company has been associated with high-performance audio since its founding by legendary filmmaker George Lucas in 1983. The THX system isn’t a recording technology, but a certification. For any theater, product, or work to become THX certified requires a rigorous set of criteria. If these qualifications are met, the resulting sound is as close to what the mixing engineer intended as possible. From home-theater systems and headphones to gaming consoles and productions on the silver screen, THX is committed to delivering the most immersive audio experience achievable. 

Optional Drop Panda Boom Mic

Compatible with the latest consoles and PCs, the boom mic features a noise-canceling condenser mic capsule for crystal-clear communication, a volume slider, a mute switch, a 4-foot cable, and a 6-foot extension cable. Tack it on to communicate with friends for voice calls, gaming, and more.
