Honestly, I just want to hear it once. I heard the Shangri La (HiFiMan) and it nearly brought me to tears. That bad boy is $50k.. What the hell does a $2.2M amp sound like??

2.2m dollar amp probably sounds indestinguishably similar to an amp in the 1000 dollar range. Most of these million dollar speaker/amp setups sound like trash anyways unless you build a room specifically for them.

Like clockwork, a mech member shows up to shit on our lighthearted fun. Thanks for additional validation of my theory!

Is that for yourself? I'm generally interested in a correlation I've noticed and I've postulated a theory as to it's origin. If you wish to participate further with my information gathering please confirm you fit the following criteria:
1) Member of both Audiophile and Mechanical but started on Massdrop primarily for the mech's 2) Probably also spent a decent chunk of time reading/contributing on r/headphones 3) Buy's HD6XX (it really is a good deal for a former flagship level headphone) 4) Doesn't really own much audio gear outside of headphones 5 Now feel's compulsion to post in Audiophile discussions asserting they've heard and know everything there is about audio. 6) Completely misses the humor in a thread and posts a "I think I know what I'm talking about" piece of worthlessness.
If you can post a picture of your hand with the index and ring fingers folded in front of YOUR amps (proving you've even heard a set of separates) I will give some credit to your "out of left field" post.

It's fun/funny... why the hell is everyone so serious these days. Maybe this is more appropriate for your 144 character limit... TL:DR You've never heard anything like this, stop regurgitating crap you've read on the web and have some fun.

That's kind of the meme though. Go to some of the major hi-fi shows, a lot of these 100,000+ dollar speaker systems sound like pure trash, at least as they set them up in the shows. Also a good way to hear Hotel California 90,000 times in one day.

I haven't heard this model. I have heard a pair of Wilsons that were around $150K. Big bold "hi-fi" sound but lacked nuance, musicality, and failed to convey emotional intent. Companies like Wilson Audio mainly caters to the "carriage trade" — people looking for expensive status symbols who really don't care about musical reproduction. You might say that it's primarily a marketing company. Personally, I would rather have a $12K pair of Monitor Audio Platinum series speakers, Cary 805 monoblock amps, a First Sound Paramount MKIII-SI Super Special Edition (S.S.E.) preamp, a Cary DMC, a full loom of Ultimate cables by High Fidelity Cables, individual platforms by Star Sound Technologies, an Audience power conditioner, Furutech NCF wall outlet with NCF carbon fiber wall plate ... all for around $100K. A system like that would make Wilson Audio sound like crap.

Is this different from the standard comfobuds pro in any way besides for the color? Are the EQ options controlled by an app? Thanks.

About to receive my replacement Focal Elex and worried about quality
My original Elex left driver went out 10 months in. The replacement is soon to be delivered. I'm worried that the same thing will happen to the replacement at some point. I've ordered the upcoming Drop HD-8xx hoping that it will usable for me like the Elex has been. With the Drop HD-8xx the inherent lift in the highs of the HD 800's has been partially dealt with and some lows added. I honestly don't like hyped treble when using headphones. I'm hoping that there is an open back phone that is somewhat linear like the Elex, and has a similar sonic signature. I don't want another headphone from Focal; just can't deal with this again. What non-Focal linear open back headphone easily competes with the Elex?

According to support, Drop has now restricted the sale of the 8XX to the US and Canada only as of 29 July 2021 - will Drop re-enable international shipping at a later date?

What to do with one side dead (Focal Elex)?
I have a pair of focal elex headphones. By far one of the best I've had but one side went dead yesterday. Not the cable issue and read that it is common with them. Could you advise what to do? Can it be fixed locally? Given it right be the driver or copper cable inside?

THX AAA 789 Amazing sound
Online reviews spoke highly, but I was suprised by the detail in the sound. I was using a Dac/amp with an msrp of 1400 so I did not expect much. I did notice an immediate clarity improvement. Music, specifically words were no longer blurred.Singers seemed to make more of an effort to enunciate words more. Even using a $100 DAC the sound was top notch. Drop hit a home run with this product.

Clamping forces of Drop-collaborated headphones
I have a fat wide head and am sensitive to the clamping force of headphones. My question is, why are the clamping forces of Drop headphones reportedly higher than the ones from the original manufacturer? For example, according to measured tests on rtings.com, both the Sennheiser HD5xx, HD58x, and HD6xx have much higher clamping force than their respective Sennheiser original models. This also seems to ring true with the Drop x Meze 99 headphones, where Meze 99 forums are saying there's almost no clamping force but the some on the Drop forum are saying the collab version's clamping force were "quite high." Is Drop requesting that headbands be tighter on the collab versions? What's going on? Also, can anyone suggest me a comfortably wide/large headphones? I'm currently using AKG 7xx and they're super comfortable.
