I advise people against the HD6XX / 600 / 650 headphones. They are solid mid-fi performers from a technical perspective but seriously lack euphonics so people will inevitably get tired of them and look elsewhere. If you are stuck on a mid-fi budget (ie, $300-$800) consider the HE-400S or TX-00. Nighthawks are also on sale for $350.
My main recommendation is to find the budget for hi-fi headphones like the TH-900, LCD-X, HE-X, Elear, etc.

Sennheiser Hd6xx /600/ 650 lacking euphonics? People inevitably getting tired of them? All I may answer is that you may be allowed your own personal opinion, however I do not share at all such opinion, and given the vast popularity of these headphones after that many years tells me that I am not alone not sharing your opinion...

They are "popular" but mainly because they are well-known and are on the bottom end of mid-fi pricing.

The HD 650 is most highly rated headphone ever.

The reviews have clearly never heard hi-fi in their entire lives. Like one of the objectvist bad-apple wierdo mods over there (Brooko) calling the mid-range "divine" out of his FiiOs, iPhones and NFB....lol.

Damn man it's you again don't you ever give it a rest. We all now know you hate these headphones why not get a tattoo showing the world your hate. If someone says some thing is good you have no right at all to question that. Keep your bigotry to one side.

for their price and purpose. They must be. Have you tried the 9 dollar ones to test them out? or where you too biased to even try the low end 9 dollar earbuds

Hi, could it be possible to make the Koss ESP Leather Carrying Case available to buy on Drop for those outside north America?
I wanted to buy it when I bought my ESPs from the last run here on Drop but it was sold out everywhere. It's on sale again on Koss website but they only ship to U.S.A or Canada so I'm wondering if there's enough people interested to maybe have a run of this beauty on Drop. Anyone?

Drop should make a DT88X
Throughout my time as an audiophile I've read quite a lot of positive reviews regarding the DT880 Pro, especially the 600 ohms version, I've seen it being highly praised for it's build quality, comfort and sound, however there is one fault I'd point out: no removable cables. As much as the DT880 Pro is marketed towards professional usage ( at least that's what I think, given the "Pro" in it's name ) it is adored by the audiophile community, thus I'd love to see a more audio-enthusiast focused version which only difference would be having a removable cable with a 3.5mm connector on each cup. I reckon the benefits would be quite sizeable : you wouldn't be confined to the 3m cable of the original version; it'd possible to run it balanced (which would help with the endeavour of properly amplifying the 600 ohms version); should the cable fail due to an accident or the throes of time dealing with it would be much simpler and , finally, if you are part of Team...

Just To Be Clear, This Site's Ordering/Shipping Process Is A Joke
October 6 - Create my Drop.com account, receive a $10 coupon, and place my order with coupon applied. October 8 - Haven't received any kind of email, so I login to the site and check my order. It's showing as "Cancelled". Why? I email support. October 9 - Receive an email stating my order was cancelled as an automated fraud protection measure and that I need to email Drop support a copy of my I.D. Have to do a Google/Reddit search for others who have been asked to do this by Drop just to make sure I'm not getting scammed. I send in my photo I.D. October 13 - Haven't heard anything at all. Order still in Cancelled status. Reply to the last email I got asking for my photo I.D. asking if I need to take my business elsewhere. October 14 - Get an email back from someone different at Drop stating my photo I.D. has been processed and all NEW orders are good to go. So that's pretty vague. Can they not just push through my previous order that began this whole process? Do I need to...

When is "it time" to get customs on IEM's?
Short answer would be when I fall in love with it, right?...I just don't want to get customs too soon if I'm not absolutely married to the product or am lost in the honeymoon phase. When do you get customs on your IEM's? Any rules of thumb?

Thought I'll Ask Here, Too... Best DAC/AMP Combo for Sennheiser HD 600?
Sennheiser 560s and HD 600 are two of my favorite headphones so far. I decided to keep HD 600 but I'm wondering if I should upgrade my setup to get more sound quality out of these... Currently using Fiio K5 Pro. The comfortable volume for me is usually at around 11am but I can safely raise it to 2pm when I want more. I'm keeping it on medium gain. Some things I'd like are: The absolute must is that the sound quality would be significantly better than the one on Fiio K5 Pro. I'm not looking to get 100% performance and my budget is limited, so if some DAC/AMP combo can do like 10% less than the one that costs 100$ more, the cheaper one is fine for me. Harshness is an issue for me and I feel like Fiio K5 Pro is making the audio more harsh, maybe I'm overthinking it. Ideally I'd like it to be a USB UAC 1 type of dac/amp so that I could avoid the mini-usb dac I'm using to connect to a game console, deliver audio to the dac/amp and then to headphones. This isn't a requirement but...

DAC suggested with B&W P7X Carbon?
I just purchased Bowers and Wilkins P7X Carbon and wanting to know thoughts on purchasing a DAC. Normally I just stick to a normal pair of Sony's never tried branching out audio wise. Right now I'm just using my onboard audio that came with my Asus Z370. Let me know what you think.

OPEN LETTER TO MASS DROP - Massdrop Airist R2R Sucessor
To Massdrop Massdrop you have A wonderful line of massdrop headphones, amps and other exclusive audiophile products. Unfortunately you have very slim line of dac options. The grace and the o2/grace dac are wonderful dacs but very featureless and are delta sigma variant. Regardless of the drama with the Massdrop Airist R2R dac it was wonderful performing R2R dac that is sadly missing from the Massdrop line up. I suggest a revision, sequel or successor to the Airist R2R. If the company Airist is no longer viable to work with brands like Soekris and their R2R dac the 1321 would be great blueprint to Massdrop R2R dac another would be a budget friendly verision of Denafrips ARES II R2R Dac. Thanks for your time and great massdrop products you have produced.
