THE DROP; It has a single speaker? How cute. It's nice that it's supposedly Made in the USA (per another reviewer), so that's a plus if it actually is. I'm sure that they are a quality set of plugs that will last a long time, so at 90 bucks for general purpose n/c ear plugs it's not a bad deal since their asking price is a laughable $585 bones??? That's quite a price for a "debut product" from a company I never heard of before. PC mag noted that originally the MSRP on these was a staggering $1,150.00. And that was back in in June of 2016 for this same set. So in my own professional audio assessment, this is more of a MASS DUMP, than a MASS DROP product, which explains the base asking price of 90 pesos for us Massdrop.com peasants.
THE TECH; According to other reviews, it's got a single 10mm coil driver, and it's amp pushes thru a flat frequency with crystal clear highs, yet bass is absent. The compartment that drives the drivers/amp/nc components houses a single AAA battery, really? In today's plug and go society? And SCA wants you to lug this around with no hope of of any remote control buttons for playback, track navigation, or ability of accepting phone calls seems like a major oversight. If your willing to spend over a thousand bucks on an audio product, you're probably looking for an immersive experience and don't want to field calls while listening, but given the included cable's 3.5mm termination, it seems likely most users will connect the SC1000 to connect it to a phone and will realize that inconvienence.
THE DEAL; I'll pass on this one. This is an out moded, out dated offering, and the audio quality is more general purpose than audiophile grade tech, and anyone who invested in these over the current 90 peso asking price is feeling the burn by SCA. Made in Murica or not! The SCA SC1000 is really a slap in the face that should wake up a lot of audiophile consumers when it comes to company's taking advantage of consumers by hocking it's branding as representative of Hi-Res when it's really not. If SCA wants to compete on the top rankings with giant's like Bose, Klipsch, Harmon Kardon, JBL, Pioneer, and others, they better up their game and their offerings to us Massdrop peasants, or we will break you.
