These are good for the money
The headphones are great and an absolute steal for the price but they did take long to arrive and there was possible mold issues I was lucky that mine didn't have mold. It took 4 months to arrive however in my opinion it was worth the wait.

Good for the money
Good overall sealed headphone if you like a bit more bassy presentation vs analytical. Vocals are clear, not shouty. Very comfortable. For the $ recommended, though of course when you go to other more expensive 'phones you'll hear where these headphone limitations are. So just don't do that.

I bought these looking for a suitable pair of home theater headphones to use late at night when my speaker setup would disturb the neighbors. The qualifications for this (for me anyway) were wide soundstage, deep bass extension, clear mids for dialogue, and non-fatiguing treble and comfort for extended binging sessions. I'm happy to report that the 99 Noir delivered on all aspects, especially for the price point. These are not anything I would ever use for monitoring or "audiophile" listening where accuracy matters the most. However, for relaxed, casual listening and watching movies, it's an easy recommendation at the price point.

I love these when I'm out walking my dogs, or grabbing groceries. Good resolution and decent separation, for closed-backs at this pricepoint. In these characteristics, it's not fair to compare the 99s with any open-backs. The sound signature is not flat. Definitely more V-shaped. It has some personality. Fairly bass-forward out of the box. Great for EDM, Hip-Hop, etc. I rolled on some hybrid pads to make them friendlier for other types of music, as well. This helps keep the bass from swallowing up the mids, and pulls back some of the tinny highs that can cause fatigue over a long listening session. Pairs excellently with Fiio Q5s for mobile listening; or the BTR5 to keep things more portable. Definitely a good value at this pricepoint.

Headphones look great but sound awful.
These headphones definitely look like they are worth 200+ USD but dont sound like it. Not enough sound detail to consider these audiophile headphones. Base is definitely there no question but its definitely not a detailed base sound. I didn't notice any mold on the pair I received. These headphones are comfortable. Not a bad pair headphones if you listen to music as background noise or maybe podcasts.

Moldy. But truly amazing headphones nonetheless.
My Meze 99 Noir headphones arrived with mold like most in the recent shipment it seems. This isn't generally acceptable for a quality service like this, but full refunds are offered, and I harbor no negative feelings towards drop or meze for this accident. In their email update they ask to recycle responsibly, sure if you are to discard your 'free' moldy headphones, but this implies you should get rid of them. I received my full refund the day after I requested my money is returned, and thus I began to clean up my headphones as I am free to do so. I merely used a vacuum to prevent mold spores from being breathed, a tooth brush to remove mold on the hardcase, and a damp soapy cloth to finish the job. The toothbrush was useful for getting ito difficult areas of the case, and the cloth was the main tool for removing mold from the earcups. Ultimately this was quite easy and took 15-20 minutes to completely restore the headphones to as they should have been. And when I tried them, I fell in love with them. The Meze 99 Noir headphones are of outstanding comfort and audio quality; they are a fun slightly bass oriented headphone, with clear and crisp details once properly equalised. The case it comes with it durable and protects them well, which is fantastic for protecting them during travel. The headphones are stylish looking like art, though being of great function and comfort. For future shipments, without mold these headphones will be truly amazing and I highly recommend you order them. Even with mold, cleaning is no difficult task, and at that point drop will refund your purchase, making them effectively free.

Does what it supposed to do.
This is an impression, not really a review I tried these headphones on in a shop once and fell in love with its' delivery of fun, energetic sounds. The headphone also fits surprisingly well on me but the gaudy faux gold accent kept me at bay. Saw a blacked out version on Drop and I ordered a pair. I had totally forgotten that I'd ordered a pair, however, when it arrives so that was a nice surprise, what I liked about Drop is how long theyh make you wait so every shipment feels like a mystery surprise. The hp comes with a modified earpads that, while making the pair sounded better, in laacking in terms of comfort. I don't need these headphone to be precise, flat, and anlytical, I bought it for the fun, yet laid back v-shaped sound so I switch it back. (I already have the 600 650 660s) The headphone delivers on what it promised, though I kind of regret that I went for the blacked out version, in retrospect, the gold accent really does help bring this headphone's character out. This is an impression, not really a review If you are looking for a good pair of flat, reference headphone, this is not it, this is a fun headphone that you pick up when you wanted to have fun.
