I don't see why Massdrop couldn't make this work considering, in my opinion, they have a great working relationship with Fostex and the previous collaborations with Fostex have been a strong hit with the community and nothing short of amazing.
I'm not familiar with the headphones in your photo, but to me, it seems that previous and existing collaborations between the two companies have been on headphones that have had a storied history and beloved by a strong community following. I'm not a headphone junkie or aficionado, so please take what I say with a grain of salt. It would be interesting to know who the community receives @BlazingGlory64 's idea.

You higlight a really valid point there @Kirkladc, something I never actually considered. It makes sense for them to release cult classics in a new and refreshing way to the dedicated fanbase of both massdrop and the supplying company.

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...

Order Cancelled? Also internal error changing address
I just purchased the Sennheiser 58x and when double checking the transaction tab of the website it shows as cancelled. Also, I tried to change the address (wanting to add additional needed information), but I get the prompt "internal error". Assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Pc38 mic issue on pc
So I bought the pc38s which sound amazing compared to all I have used prior, but no matter what I try, I can not get the mic working on my pc! It works fine when plugged into a controller for console, but simply wont on the pc. I own msi ge75 raider, it has two ports, one for headset, one for the mic! The cords that come with the headset are split into two, each is the 3 pin I think (TRS)... Maybe the port on the computer requires 4 pin or what else can I try? Thank you in advance!

Best DAC to pair with Sennheiser HD6XX and Drop + THX AAA 789 Amp?
I just put in my order the other day for the HD6XX and Drop THX 789. I am not sure what DAC I should pair with them. I have read a bunch of the posts here and got some ideas but I still can't decide. Right now I was thinking of waiting for the Drop + Grace Balanced DAC or the SMSL SU-8 to drop again or even grabbing one of them off of Amazon. Would either of those be a good pairing or is there something better I should be getting? The only thing I don't like about the SU-8 is that it is silver. The SU-9 comes in black but it's more expensive. My only requirement is that I want it to be balanced. I would prefer something in the $200-300 range but would be willing to spend more if it's absolutely worth it and going to be a noticeable difference. Thanks!

Why DACs /Headphone amps?
I see a lot of DAC and headphone amps on the site, and I'm wondering why I would need one (or both?). I listen sometimes on my computer, sometimes on an iPad or iPhone, and sometimes on an old school stereo with a Sony receiver. All of these are compatible with headphones, so what's the purpose of getting a DAC/Headphone amp? And what is the difference? And do I need both? Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this for me. Bob
