I am losing hope in waiting for this drop...... So I bought the Hifiman HE-560 from Hifiman instead . Spectacular !Even at the original price , these headphones have very high value/price ratio. They are comparable (in terms of sound quality alone) to the TOTL from other brands. I tried the HE-560 against my Sennheiser HD800s (which is a huge improvement over the HD800, and a bargin compared to other TOTL headphones like Utopia, HE1000 V2, and technically /sonically better than T1). Surprised to find that while HE-560 loses slightly in terms of details and soundstage, it has even better tonality than the HD800s ! It gets the best part of HD800s and LCD-2: detailed, clear, simmering but at the same time lush and liquid sounding ! Really want Massdrop will do the HE500 drop again so I can try HE560' s brother too.
You do realise that they've been discontinued since 2014, right?
