Too pricey for a Massdrop. Should start at below 200 dollars. The original can be purchased at around 220 dollars these days.

These are nice, but mine broke after about 4 months. The headband has a thin, transparent plastic piece that holds the strap part to the suspension mechanism. Yeah, that plastic part broke. To replace it would cost about $80. That plus the $60 dekoni pads to replace the really underwhelming stock pads, and this pair of cans that cost $200 (arguably not worth that much) are now $340. They're definitely not worth $340. Not sure yet what the massdrop return policy is outside of 30 days, but I'm assuming that it's not going to be satisfactory. All in all, they're alright. They sound very meh until you burn them in and then they sound pretty good. They're comfortable with better ear pads as the stock ear pads are pretty bad. The cable is also kind of meh, it tangles if you look at it the wrong way. Wouldn't buy these again, and don't really recommend them but at the same time, I'm not not recommending them. For $200, they're marginally worth the price. Honestly, for less than that, you could go on ebay and buy a pair of m560s and be 200 times happier. These are also way harder to drive than the impedance would lead you to believe. My xhair 7 mobo onboard sound was fantastically loud with the 4xx's, but it barely drives these. Even the FX-Audio X6 dac barely has enough juice to push them to the top.

Could I bother anyone with the measurements for the inner part of the pads? I have really big ears and it's a drag looking for high-quality headphones that do not hurt my ears and give me listening fatigue. Note: I am currently using Audio Technica ATH-AD700x with these earpads: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078HDVCN2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Thank you in advance. =)

The inner diameter is about 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm). The depth is at most 1 inch but about 7/8 inch (2.22 cm) near the center (maybe little less when eyeballing it). The pads don't crush easily so it holds its shape (at least for me it does). I don't think I have large ears - my bottom ear lobs do graze the pads. I only notice when thinking about it. I'd say they're about as comfortable as headphones can get. My minor complaint is they do often squeak when I chew which retracts from the immersion.

Sorry for the late response, Michael-Q. Thank you so much for responding with the measurements. This will help me greatly with deciding the purchase.

I believe it's called a trs connector -a basic stereo connector. Two hots and a ground on the plug. If other standard trs earbuds/earphones work these will work as well - performance will vary.

Yes, it has a 3.5mm jack but I wouldn't recommend getting these to listen to on your phone without a portable amplifier.

Currently trying to upgrade my Stream. Quick question, I have a SHURE SM7B connected to a FocusRite Scarlet 2i2 audio interface which also has a headphone input jack. Will that audio interface suffice as an Amp for these headphones for gaming reasons (hearing footsteps, etc.) Or should I buy a standalone Preamp/Dac for these cans?

The FocusRite is more than sufficient lol.

Has anybody tried these with the Creative SXFI headphone amp? I'm curious if they are a good fit for each other.

Is there any way to get elastic band replacements for this? One side got looser and sadly I have no warranty it appears. Got this roughly 2 years ago.

I would try contacting AKG or asking on Reddit. I know seen the replacement's around I just don't remember the website. They do sell a band/assembly replacement for them.

My pair broke at the transparent plastic part that holds that band to the suspension mechanism. I can't find the specific piece, and the entire headband replacement kit is 80 dollars.

A few questions, 1. Does this ship with tracking to the Philippines? 2. How are they versus the philips fidelio X1? I use them mostly for gaming with a gen1 schiit stack. Thank you!

Listen to AKG K240MKII + Encore mDSD. Mostly black and doom, sometimes industrial and metalcore. Is it worth changing for these genres K240 to K7XX?

Probably not, I'd find a different brand altogether Elastic wears out sooner than I would have liked, find something much more durable and preferably with a headband adjustment that doesn't wear out like elastic
