I was one of the few I guess who were willing to pay the higher price. I had one that was faulty and returned it thinking I will get the TH 900 when I go to Japan (my company is headquartered) ... which I never could as I left and joined a different organization. Then the wait for this one was too long, so got it as soon as read the email. I have a question for those who bought from this recent lot. How was the packaging? For me it certainly doesn't look factory packaged! The headphone box in fact was open! I have written to drop and am awaiting a response. I haven't fully opened the box / headphone.
UPDATE: Drop Support did reply clarifying that these are not refurb /b-stock. However when I opened them to my surprise they seem to be Ebony and not Mahogany. I have written back to them.
Wow really!? I ordered them as well. Paid the extra because I wanted them for so long. Can't believe you were sent the ebony's! I will get back to you and let you know my experience when I receive the product (I live in Canada)
What did drop say back to you about them being ebony's? How do you like the sound?
Haven't heard back. I had EB before, had issue with the cup so sent it back. So this time I thought I will try Mahogany. But I will keep these .. anytime in future when the PH and MH are back, will grab those. I own the Denon 9200H too and my boss had given me his Fostex TH900 for few weeks. I still feel (despite some reviews that Drop version sounds better) that I want the TH900. I had a denon D5000 and sold it .. but I like the sound from all these extended family members. I haven't heard the PH or MH, so my comparison is only with TH900 and the Denon 9200H. I bought these because my daughter has started to like listening to headphones .. so I can share the Drop ones with her. From my previous enquires with other members on this board and others, it seemed like the EB were middle of the road. If you haven't heard any Fostex in past .. any one of them is worth owning! So even if you get the MH, you will be happy is my guess.
Hi! If you dont mind me asking, how do you find the Denon D9200 compared to the TH900 and the EB? Thanks!
