Product Description
You know strong sound when it hits you, when that bass rattles through your skull or the treble trills about the eardrums just right. There are a myriad of ways to describe the quality of SoundMAGIC HP200 Headphones- a mellowed V sound signature, excellent instrument separation, comparable sonic quality to the highly regarded Sennheiser HD650 - but the simplest descriptor is also the most effective: they sound damn good ...

I am writing this review as i am listening to the headphones to give an account of how they actually perform. The build quality and the headphone bag included are pretty good but what matters most is the sound quality. Now these headphones are offered as an open back headphones and to be honest - it is not. The design sure looks open back but when you listen to the soundstage, it quite compressed like a closed back headphone. These pair of headphones are neither monitor headphones if you are looking for one - the sound is pretty coloured on the warm side with lots of bass. The problem with this headphones is the balance of the sound it reproduces. The bass is strong drowning the trebles and the vocals overpower everything else but the worst part is that the high frequency trebles are sharp and high pitched rather than controlled and this can cause discomfort especially for tracks with shimmering sounds.
I bought this headphone after reading few reviews that they sound like the Sennheiser HD 650 with the same frequency response but with 1/3rd the price. The Sennheiser headphone has very good reviews from audiophiles alike but i have not yet tried them out since they are outside my budget. The comfort otherwise is great and feels solid for a reasonably priced headphone.
Bottom line is please don't buy this headphone without trying at a store first. I bought it here at Massdrop, bore the additional costs of shipping to India, just to find out that they actually suck. A lot.
Full bodied sound? No way!
I burned in the headphones for 120 hrs straight before this review. Below is the equipment i used.
Schitt Audio Modi DAC Schitt Audio Vali Amplifier (Tube)

DON'T BUY. First the cable started shredding within 8 months. Just crumbling. I put some cable wrap around it and went on. Today the plastic holding the cans to the headband just broke while picking them UP. These just sit on my computer desk, have never travelled, been in a bag or anything, just sitting on a desk. No kids, nothing but a year's age and they're disintegrating. Pictures included.

Here is a picture of my break. It looks like it happened in the exact same location. This seems like defective manufacturing.

just poor design, that thing's not strong enough to hold those big cans. Get some epoxy and glue/strengthen it, mine are still working, though pretty ugly!

Just got an Oppo HA-1 amp recently, boy do these sound great with a good DAC/amp, really livens them up, good sound stage and separation, just hit the request button to help bring it back for anyone who wants a pair.

Sorry but in my experience they sound horrible. Too much treble, muffled mid range and closed soundstage. I use a Schitt DAC + AMP.

Buyer BEWARE: my pair of these phones had a problem with the plastic holding the earphones in place (broken in two places). MASSDROP refused to honor the warranty on the grounds it was "wear and tear." The headphones are not operational with this defect. I'd rather pay full-price through a retailer who'll honor the warranty, rather than save a few bucks in the short-term for a useless warranty.

I really wish this would drop again. Every review I've read of it is glowing.

I own a pair and they are an excellent set of cans. Right up there with Beyer DT880/990s and the Senn 600s/650s (I also own the 650s).

Well, its almost one week since i got mine with enough burn in, stock pads and critical/relax listening; I found it's definitely ~was 3x now 10x~ better than m50. Such an excellent upgrade for a few bucks more. Thx massdrop and his community.

I'm enjoying the hell out of these HP200. Replaced the sweaty pleather pads with plush alcantara pads for a deeper soundstage and better comfort. Thanks, Massdrop!
