Product Description
Following the success of the Massdrop x Fostex TH-X00, we teamed up with another brand that Foster manufactures headphones for, E-MU Systems, to bring you a new pair of purpleheart headphones—this time smaller, lighter, and perfectly suited for on-the-go use. The Massdrop x E-MU Purpleheart features handcrafted solid wood enclosures and biocellulose drivers, like its full-size relative, with a more understated aesthetic and a warm, appealing, non-fatiguing sound Read More

Pretty good for the price. Overall it's pretty warm, suitable for almost all kinds of pop, but maybe not the best for classical music.

Pretty Good
These have the Foster sound, for sure. The midrange sounds tubby (not tube-y) with the stock cable. I imagine a 3rd party cable upgrade will that, some.

Very good phones for the price, IMO
Very easy to listen to with no fatigue for me. I don't really listen from my phone, but almost always from my computer or from my XDuoo X3 II that I carry with me. Haven 't carried it with me on the plane yet, but I've been flying a lot so may try taking them with me once soon. Hearing outside noise isn't a negative for me as I like to be able to know when something's happening around me. I listen to a lot of vocals, strings, piano, and horns (classical, jazz, pop) and not a lot of heavy bass. To mirror what others have said, to me these sound pleasantly warm with a good amount of detail and clarity, but not as much as some others. Despite some nit picking, it's a very pleasant listen for me for my typical music, but with quality and defined enough bass when it needs it. Lisa Hannigan's voice is always lovely, but particularly nice with these ;) Also have Harmon Kardon CL headphones. Those have more impressive detail, but for certain things can be a bit cold, but I like those as well... just different from the Purplehearts

These are very nice for the price. They have more clarity than my pair of Souls. The wood is pretty and has nice resonance. My only complaint is the build quality is a bit on the cheap side. There is little adjustability. It is not modular in that the cables are permanently attached and can't be changed if worn. The earpads are not very securely fastened and are clearly cheap Chinese, standard size replacement pads. The upside on that is they are easy to find, change, and are inexpensive. Other advantages are that the sound is above average, they look decent and are comfortable to wear for a bargain price. I will enjoy them while they last, but I do not have much confidence that that will be a long time. Hopefully, I will be proven wrong.

Pretty disappointed that after the 2nd use the ear piece brok off the headset rendering the totally useless now. I see why it broke so easily, the piece holding it together is smaller than the width of a pencil by at least 1/2. generic head sets have lasted by far longer.

super nice sound and pretty comfortable, overall I really enjoyed these. the plastic is a lil sketchy though, I had mine for about 8 months before one of the ears snapped off and the other stopped working entirely. good pair of headphones, wish it was more durable, I feel like it should have held out a lot longer since I'm not using them in an intense way.

Good: Sounds fantastic for the price, with good bass range and highs don't sound shrill. No distortion at volumes I usually listen to. The wood finish looks lovely and feels really smooth to the touch. Much nicer than plastic. Bad: Headband is too thin and after extended periods of listening becomes uncomfortable. Concerned about long term durability of the cable.
