Drop should buy the tooling for the Oppo PM-3

Bring these back to life, add in changeable ear pads and keep the price the same or lower. These are grail level headphones that I regret selling and I want them to live again!

They did - Panda seems to be the Oppo reborn - wireless.

And the HA-2 as well ;- )
Doesn't really match up with their typical method of collaboration (find an active manufacturer to tweak or resurrect an old product). Oppo jumped completely out of the A/V game so they would have to find an OEM willing to make it for them, a much more difficult task than talking an existing manufacturer into a couple of special runs on their existing lines. I would like to see the PM line as well as the Disc Player line revived. Of course one can still buy a couple of the brands Oppo OEM'd for, those will supposedly be supported for another year or so.

I had one, then my wife won a white pair at RMAF, and it was good but not perfect. +Easy to power Planar +Light +Compact +Elegant tech aesthetics +Selvedge Denim case +Surprisingly comfortable pads once you found the perfect wearing position +Fairly balanced sounding/neutral +simple cable attachment point -Only one comfortable wearing position... can’t shift it if the optimal spot starts to get sore/hot -Bass extension felt a little light and less than ideal -cables felt like they didn’t have strain reliefs, would break sooner or later. Overall, I preferred the PM2, which was also fairly balanced sounding but I could come back to it again and again, and tried to keep an eye out for a b-stock unit (after my tour review, I checked several times a month for a long time). I couldn’t afford a new one with the low income I had at the time. My PM-2 Review: https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/review/13940/
I have the same thought Drop and a mechanical keyboard product. Buy the rights to it and bring it back to life

I bought the THX AAA ONE and the Sennheiser TRRS 2.5mm headphone cable in the related installation for the HD 6XX. When the shipment arrived at my house, I found out that I couldn't connect a TRRS 2.5mm headphone cable to my THX AAA ONE amplifier. Please let me know if there is a way to connect a Sennheiser TRRS 2.5mm cable to a THX AAA ONE amplifier.

I was just about to buy these when they went off sale :( does anyone know how regularly these go on sale? Also, what's up with the "9 days left" under the add to cart button? Does that mean there's only 9 days left to buy these before they leave the site? If that's true are there any equivalent headphones in the $400 range (preferably closed back)?

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
