The Brits Canadians know how to design some dead sexy electronics! Love the chrome arms on this!

Hard to justify this, the Sony WH-1000XM3 has been discontinued in favor of the XM4 and can sometimes be found for this price. From what I've been reading online, these headphones are not superior to the Sony.

Not addressed to me, but I'm betting on the Deva and the Panda. Personally, I prefer the Sennheiser Momentum TW in ear and the Sony WF 1000xm3 in ears versus the over ear.

Sonically, the Drop Panda readily surpasses the Sony XM3. Of other BT headphones that I own or have owned, the Sennheiser PXC 550 & Bang & Olufsen H7 II have better performance. Only the PXC is a direct competitor to the XM3 as it also offers ANC. Granted, the ANC is not as strong as on the Sony but the sonics are better & the ANC artifacts are lessened although the XM3 does a credible job in that respect. What the Sony's excel in are design, ANC & supplied software. Their biggest weakness is their bass, which I find to be a bit strong & ill-defined. I also feel that they have some recess in the midrange. I do really like their upper midrange & treble although sometimes I feel that a bit of grain can creep in. That's track dependent though. With all of that said, I really do get the choices that Sony made when designing them. They are commuter headphones that were designed in Japan for the Japanese transit system. I live in NYC & what I've discovered are the negative effects of sub sonic noise. It affects even ANC headphones. They offset response in the frequency extremes & especially in the bass. I think that Sony took this into account when designing these headphones. Unfortunately this means that they can suffer in comparison when used in non commuting scenarios.

Charging: micro-usb, and no noise cancelling, are drop helps the manufacturer clearing the old stocks?? PS. from massdrop to drop, it seems they have changed their mindset from the user side to manufacturer side

There is noise cancelling, but it does appear to be an older phone. I've been reading reviews from late 2018 to fall 2019 online. Personally, I've never passed up something I wanted because it used microUSB instead of USB-C. PPS. I agree the company has grown exponentially and it's kind of lost the "boutique" feel of the old days, but this isn't that different from drops I remember going back several years. I'd hardly call this a bad deal in that they are still $449 on Amazon, so you are getting savings. Still I agree with you that I miss the early Massdrop days.

EOL product detected* HP50 was very positively reviewed once. It was indeed a good portable option back in 2013-2015. I still have 2 of those HP50s lying around somewhere :) HP70 however is not a wireless HP50! Despite what NAD marketing wants you to believe, the two models sound nothing alike. HP70 has no sub-bass. Low end is there in quantity, but unlike the HP50, it lacks definition. Mids sound hollow and distant with typical Bluetooth-brittle highs. Don't take my word for it, just google around old HP70 reviews. In any case, it's Oct 2020. The portable headphone market has moved on... and so should you.

Great! I was going by Steve Gutenberg's review on CNET. He was complaining about using SBC with iphone. That makes it a good deal for people with i devices, too. I LOVE the design! If I hadn't ordered an B&W PX last night I would have jumped on these.

I'm guessing Drop got their hands on some closeout ANC wireless headphones here. I have a pair of NAD HP50 headphones and these appear to be the ANC wireless version of those. The HP50s are excellent, IMO, but they do need burn in to take advantage of Room Feel. They eventually worked their way to the top of my rotation, though. 🙂

I loved my HP50's sound but I hated the fit. Then one side just died. I tore it down and now I am planning to DIY a headband and yolk for them.
