These sound great, but have a few issues.
Edit: Was 4/5 before the firmware update. Firmware update makes it pretty unusable with mobile device. Drop has so far ignored all the firmware complaints for over a month and does not offer rollback to the previous version. As such I cannot recommend these right now.
I don't really want to take anything away from these headphones. They sound just as good as a wired set of headphones, and in that regard they perform their core duty at a 5/5.
There are a few issues though, which could be addressed by drop.
1) As was brought to drop's attention long ago, there is little padding on the headband. If you wear the headband near the back of your skull, you will definitely start to get soar after a couple hours of use. If you wear it angled further forward this doesn't really become an issue. Drop could really just change the padding design on this, and I don't see why they didn't. I'm pretty sure you could even swap out a more padded silicone under-strap yourself pretty easily if it was offered in post.
2) Drop gives you a 2x male end USB-C connector? Really? Also there is no charging brick. The USB-C connector is also specially designed to have a very thin and contoured shell around the cable's connector, and that is because the input slot into the headphones is very narrow, and the cup of the headphones is at an angle where the connector is. Most of my USB-C cables have pretty fat shells around the connectors, and while they do "click" into the port of the headphones, I don't think they really sit flush and likely will stress the headphones input over time if you use third party cables. This could have been very easy to fix in the design, by contouring the headphone cups around the connection to allow typical USB-C heads to fit. It seems to me like it was done on purpose so you want to use drop chords, and this sort of thing really puts me off. You can find different information on charging in the same brochures provided. One says to charge with 5V-1A, and another says it can handle 5V-1A or higher DC from any charger which I suspect is really the case. So you might want to invest in a usb adapter which has a traditional usb 3.0 male end with a USB-C female end unless you want to charge with your phone (thanks drop).
Would not recommend to a friend.
What's odd about a 2x male USB-C? and who needs another charging brick at this point?
The problem I ran into: not enough USB-C charging ports for all my devices and not enough extra USB-C chargers. Why wouldn't they just include a charger and/or a cable that you can plug into a USB A charger (which I do have ports for).
I'm not having this problem...and even if I was having this problem, I could solve it before the initial charge was done. Seriously. I'm glad they didn't include another wart.
Alright, good for you. Some people could have used the charger or a usb c to a cable.
Tiny, tiny violin... from the viewpoint of the planet, and the majority of the consumers here, charger and cable would be a waste. A small group would have just whined that the cable was too cheap or that the charger had less current than their laptop. The idea to leave it out came pretty early on in the group discussions early after the product announcement. The community has spoken.
"some people" hahaha. the VAST MAJORITY do not. You know how to acquire what you need quickly and cheaply.
