Lets make this happen, a baby Orpheus for the modern audiophile world. We have the Sennheiser HE 1, but no other electrostatic from the company for the audiophile that's looking for the Sennheiser sound at an (way more) accesible price. The system should be based on the HE 60 project, an electrostatic with price-consciousness in mind, as the then HE 90 (Orpheus) was too expensive just as the HE 1 is actually. And just like the 600 series it should have a good build quality but using the famous plastic that Sennheiser is known for, which we still have from the 580 Precision and it is still rock solid. And most importantly, great sound quality paired with an energizer that can deliver (more than) enough power to drive the electrostatic driver. I would suggest the name to be HE 0X (Zero X), as it's a baby HE 1 and an 'X' has always trailed on Massdrop x Sennheiser collaborations. I had previously seen that Will from Collaborations said they had already pitched Sennheiser for the HE X0,...
I am tired of import taxes every time I participate in a drop. I don't mind paying the actual price of products in USD even with the Canadian dollar doing so bad. I was wondering if there is any chance of a Canadian branch ever opening up so drops can be mailed quicker and import taxes wouldn't apply. I know there are a lot of Canadian customers who would appreciate this as well. Something similar to what Amazon.ca does.

Hi, I'm by no means an audiophile but would like to treat my self to a premium pair of headphones. I will be using them predominantly for gaming and casually listening to music (top 40/hip hop). I'd like the headphones to be able to locate footsteps whilst having a decent bass. I've heard great things about the DT1990 Pro and HD660s which fit my budget of around $600.
This is going to sound dumb, but I recently bought the Fiio FX1221 without knowing much about it, on a whim I guess, and don't know what to do or where to go to get music. I am used to the iPhone and iTunes, have bought quite a bit but don't think that'll be able to download to the new unit. Can someone point to a download source where I can get some tunes for free? My tastes tend to be old rock and newer country, so I don't need the latest pop or metal. Thanks to anyone that can offer some help.
Opened the package and found the AC adapter has EU plug not for US market. Unable to test the device before finding an AC adapter. Have never seen a careless manufacturer like this before. Wonder what inside looks like.
I've been using the SHP9500s with the vmoda boompro for a few years and love the combo. Figured it was time to check in on the latest and greatest.
What's the communitys favorite headphones for gaming that now? Built in mic, compatible with the boompro, or < $20 mic attachment preferred.
Will get myself an o2 + sdac soon, what headphones I should upgrade to(after a certain period of time). Im looking for like Sennheiser hd6xx but those will probably not have discount when I'll be buying em, or 58x jubilee
Suggest some cans or iems
