Product Description
From Mitchell & Johnson, an exciting new hi-fi company out of London, the MJ2 allows you to enjoy the sound of an electrostatic headphone without having to own a specialized electrostatic amplifier. It does this with an electret driver, which works like an electrostatic driver but is permanently charged using a special diaphragm that can store and utilize this charge in everyday use Read More

Decent
For the price they are fun and engaging, but require a bit of burn in.

Poor QC
These didn't arrive intact. The metal joint beside the hinge separated which shouldn't be possible if properly welded. I tried using glue for metal and even tried soldering but they refused to join together. I tried hearing the cans by holding up the cups to my ears but I wasn't impressed with the sound. I might change my review once I find a way to fix this headphone because as it stands I can't even listen to these.

I think there may be quality issues for those who had a horrible experience. These amazed me. I did purchase a balanced XLR cable and that made a big difference! The bass coming out of these cans were stunning. They NEVER broke or clipped with the deepest bass test. The midrange is crystal clear and the subtle rolloff in the highs made them much more enjoyable. Perhaps these are lifestyle cans with solid bass and mids? All I know is they hold their ground vs my TH900mk2's and Aeon Flows when it comes to bass and overall presence. My experience only.

Check out Periapt cables. I have them make me cables for all my headphones. They have a pair in stock they use to test the cables after they make them.

Terrible headphone, just terrible. Horrible muddy sound with little sound stage and poor imaging. They are not worth 500$, not $100. The $15 Koss ksc75 sounds leagues better then these. Nice packaging though

Hi, make sure you give them at least 200 hour burn in. In the beginning they sound terrible to me to.

I've got to admit they've improved and with the right stack and music they can sound descent but it wasn't worth my time imo.

In short: Bildquality and Materials: 9/10 Soundquality: 3/10 Comfort: 3/10 For the Massdrop price (100 Dollars) this is still a bad deal. As mentioned the Bildquality is good but they are very uncomfortable. The cups are too small to be over ear and too big to be on ear. Also the cups arent deep enough and my ears always touch the interior which is relatively hard. I cant wear them for more than an hour. Sound is muddy. Also there is practically no bass at all. Dont buy these. The Koss kph30i sounds better than these and is more comfortable for 30 bucks.

I think they are crap at any price. I've broken them in (50 plus hours) played through dedicated headphone amp (though obviously these were meant for on the go listening). I HAVE a small melon thus, whomever is complaining that they are too big are obviously suffering with delusion. They sound decent but the inconvenience of their discomfort both in clamping force and the ridiculously uncomfortable earpieces makes them a NOT BUY! Even at the 50 percent off reduced price. BTW, these are an English branded ONLY Chi-Fi set of supposedly portable cans. If your looking for full fledged great sounding on any amp/player/dac combo just go buy HiFiMan 1000 edition X V2. These are end game for 95 percent of audiophiles and the other 5 percent are deluding themselves with "snob" factor if they think they could actually perceive any more than the V2's can produce! Ciao for now!

I think these headphones are very good quality and fun to listen to. Not too analytical but they'll reveal poorly compressed songs right away. I use them through an o2 headphone amp and the sound is great. I'm probably at 50 hours with these and they do sound better with time. The high and mids are a smack in the face, but still controlled. Leaving my ears satisfied instead of destroyed. I think these shine the brightest with high volume. Makes me happy anyway!
Ear pads are soft and comfortable, even with glasses. But my ears touch the headphone so I can't use them for too long. And my ears are pretty narrow - I've got a very big head though.
Price is great for the quality.

After a break in time of 200 hours it was time to listen seriously to the sound on different HP amplifiers. It's a nice sound with a laid back tuning. Not one with a stunning high resolution with accent on every details like my Final Pandora Hope VI. It's produces a lot darker sound as my AKG Q701 but also got a nice 3D sound. I think the balance price (250 $) / quality is fair. It was not were I hoped for thus I sold the MJ2 and hope the buyer is more satisfied with it as I.

Out if the box, these headphones were sounding shockingly bad. I instantly regretted my purchase. However, after reading that these needed to be broken in, I left them playing for about 30 hours. It made a world of a difference. As for the sound : I think they sound great if you weren’t expecting electrostatic performance. They are electret hybrids. And for that I think they sound fantastic. I’ve also got AKG K271, Hifiman HE400 and a pair of modded Fostex T50RPs. The MJ2 are not as airy and open as the HE400 and T50RPs but beat them at the bottom end and have a sound stage that is almost as wide. The AKG have more bottom but that is it, otherwise they’re quite far behind. These headphones have there own sound - very musical and convey a lot of atmosphere and emotion. I’ve changed the ear pads to some Brainwavz hybrids , because the original pads are ridiculous. As for overall fit - the headphones are too big. I remedied this with an additional headband. Build quality otherwise is decent. sThey are not perfect, however, with the mods I made I am very happy.

Which specific Pads did you get? Are the ovals too big?
