Would love to purchase a pair myself unfortunately I’m in the process of trying to buy a home. So it won’t happen yet. Hopefully these become a regular Massdrop item and E-stats become a major thing again. They have a great sound signature.
It seems to me that once Massdrop pairs up with a manufacturer and goes in on a joint venture with them, like with the Sennheiser phones, there's a high likelihood that they'll be sold on Massdrop for a while.
Massdrop is able to offer a good price to the consumer, and the name brand manufacturer gets a good distribution channel through Massdrop. The Sennheiser phones, for example, have probably sold much, much more volume of their version of the HD650 than Sennheiser could probably move in the same amount of time through their other sellers. And since the Massdrop version is exclusive to Massdrop, there's no distribution conflict with Sennheiser's other vendors of the HD650.
This seems to especially be the case with these great but older models that have otherwise have petered out in the general marketplace.
So as long as this arrangement is beneficial to both Massdrop and to Koss, it's likely this will show up again for a while.
