Turns out it's not an exclusive product. Not only can I buy it on Amazon for less, but I could have gotten it delivered with Prime shipping and had all of my components on the same day.

The black/red ONE came out more than a year before the Massdrop collab and sold for $249. It's now being cleared out for cheaper than the massdrop collaboration. With Sennheiser collabs they are essentially "perma-sale and different color". To my knowledge they've not tried to tune any of their Senn collabs. The colorway IS exclusive. Exclusivity can also be time based, like the Sprout II/Sprout 100 collaboration with PSAudio.

That’s where my search is already taking me. I keep striking out. I’m thinking Senn 65xx and a Yeti at this point.
Can't say I prefer the 6xx (650 in my case) for gaming. Typically using a vmoda boompro with my X2's as the soundstage is better on those and I am not going for competitive FPS these days. 650 and a yeti should do better than most if not all gaming headsets. Positional audio in games has gotten much better than it used to be... don't reall need another layer of sound processing IMO

They aren't the same, but they are pretty much the same product. Also how much less is it on Amazon? From where I live massdrop was the only way to get it

Not yet, I wanna get the fiio k3 because I think that will work fine, it's cute and it doesn't cost a arm and a leg. You?

Yes. Using a Sound BlasterX G6 right now. The headset showed up today. I've just started playing with it, but man they are flat so far. I can't imagine how they could sound so bad. Also, the mic is DOA so I'm going to have to RMA them anyway.
