Mass drop has many times included these types of items in the Tech section as mic/volume controls do not appeal to the audiophile crowd. Beyond that buy something from the audiophile section with a replaceable cable and pick up whatever configuration you need. The mic/volume controls are more likely to fail than a plain jane cable... if I am paying good money for an IEM it needs to be replaceable cable or lack those controls if fixed. I never would have bought an IE800 if it had an "i" at the end :)

Having some IEMs in Tech and some in Audiophile makes things very very difficult for users. If I want an etymotic, do I look in Audiophile or Tech? Oh, if it's the one with the mic I should look in Tech and no-mic I look in Audiophile...???
Most of us, I'd think, would just consider "Audiophile" to include all audio gear, and all I was asking was to consider here people wanting audio gear who aren't into hi end audiophile gear.
btw, the X7i is a great IEM for smartphone users. Don't know about that X6i, but I'd guess it's good too.

Add Tech to your "communities" the most relevant drops (according to their algorithm) will appear on your the top of your home page. Personally I say keep that mic garbage out of my music listening. If you plug a non-mic earphone into the iphone it will automatically enable the mic on the phone anyway... this only presents an issue if the phone is in your pocket.

DROP Reincarnation of the AKG 403
[image] I dont know if this particular pair has a significant fanbase or not, but this was the cheapest open back headphone that I every got to use and they sounded super amazing compared to the price. They used to be THE sub 20$ on-ear open-back headphones. the pads were uselessly soft that it was very painful to keep them on the ear for even half an hour. But still, they sounded so great that the padding issue wasn't enough to give up them. So how about bringing them back with the help of DROP along with better padding and a bit improved bass response.

Turntables?
I'm curious how many people here have turntables (that aren't neglected in the garage or attic). There are a lot of great things that I'd love to see drop here specifically for turntables. Record clamps/weights, phono preamps, cleaning supplies, etc. There are so many accessories. Having a turntable show up from time to time would be pretty cool too. Obviously if nobody is really interested in turntables here there isn't much point trying to find some cool stuff to drop.

A Drop Studio Mono Power and a Phono Amplifier?
With the new THX AAA One amp having pre-amp output I have an interest in maybe seeing in the future having a Drop Studio Mono Power Amplifier for passive speakers. I have been eyeing some sony SS-CS5s and a Sony SA-CS9 with a miniDSP. The problem is I still have to spend buckets more on power amps for the two speakers. I want a mono block for each channel but the only mono blocks that exist in a decent price are car blocks. Schiit has their Vidar/Aegir power amps that can be used as mono blocks. Something similar to that concept would be cool. Even cooler if you could some how find a way to fit THX AAA tech into it. As for the phono amplifier. I am just curious if there could be a way to get an RIAA Phono stage amp. In an ideal world I would like THX tech with the ability to support MM and MC cartridges. I do not see this as a huge possibility so if I were to focus on anything it would me MM cartridges and seeing if you can squeeze THX tech in there. Just kind of...

Wrong Shipping Address (Not my fault)
Hi, Im a little frustrated, my item is going to the wrong address and it seems like i cannot change it. i had provided the correct shipping address on the account and when i made the purchase. This correct address was confirmed to me in the receipt i had received from drop. I have a downloaded pdf and email to prove this. However i can see on DHL tracking that it has listed an incorrect address, it has reached my country and now a new carrier Yodel will be taking over. I have contacted DHL (bot) and they have told me i need to contact the supplier (DROP) to get the address changed. Ive also tried contacting Yodel (my package goes to Yodel after i pay customs ). Yodel has told me that they cannot change the address it is going to unless a failed attempt has been made at the address or they can put the item into their network and i can re-order from the supplier ( ive no idea how this works) Obviously i want my item and i don't want it going to the incorrect address when this...

Something wrong with my setup?
So I just got the HD6xx and the Schiit Heresy and Modi stack. I put in my RCA cables from the Modi to the Heresy and then plugged in the usb from the Modi to my pc. I plugged the headphones in and everything sounds great. However, there is this static and some pops in the left driver of my headphones when I'm using it. I don't want to jump to conclusions and think I have a faulty unit so I'm wondering if something is wrong with how I set everything up. Thank you.

Drop shipping slow because of covid.
I payed 45 dollars for one day shipping on the 16th and my package is set to be delivered on the 21st, I have read other forum posts recently of people saying they are not receiving items or response from drop. I got a refund for the shipping, and 10 dollar credit (thank you drop) I would just choose the free shipping for now even if you need a package ASAP.
