I have had the 177X for over a week now. Initial impressions are very positive. Sounds good with the Apple dongle DAC. Good listening level at around 75%. Same when driven directly from my MacBook Pro. Also, sounds good with my NX4 and es100 DAC/Amps. The NX4 brings more weight to the overall sound signature and provides more headroom volume wise than the dongle DAC, ES100 or directly from the MBP. The best thing is the lack of treble spike. I can listened to the headphone for 3+ hours and not have any treble fatigue. The imaging and sound stage are very good as well. I’ll listen with the stock pads for a while and then try the leather pads in about a week or 2. Bass with stock pads is tight and controlled, which I like. I have a set of DT990 600 which came be a bit overwhelming with the bass depending on what I’m listening to. The treble spike is very amp dependent with the DT990 600. I’ve been eyeing the 177X since they came out. $350 on sale from Drop seems to be the right price. They are likely going to replace my Meze 99 Noire as my travel headphones. Lastly, the iPad Air with USB-C is great for streaming. Gone are the days of Camera Kit dongles or magical Lightning cables to get audio from an iOS device to a DAC.

Preamp for volume control of left, right channels?
Does anyone know of a preamp-like device that can adjust the level of the left and right channels with either a pan/balance control or separate left/right volume controls? I want to be able to turn down the right channel a few DB to compensate for partial hearing loss. I'd love something with the footprint and pricing of the various JDS Labs, Mayflower and/or Schitt boxes but haven't seen anything on the market that can do pan/balance other than high-end headphone amps. Thanks!

Drop x Panda buzzing noise
This buzzing noise started to happen like a month ago. It was just static noise after being paired to the phone, then it getting louder and louder now, whenever I try to connect it on Bluetooth, it goes crazy buzzing sounds, for like five minutes and non-stop both earpieces. It also can't be controlled with a sound bar or anything, just goes loud so that I can't wear it at all. But, weirdly it stops when I connect it to my laptop using the bundle 3.5mm cable. What do you think of this problem? I'm gonna contact the customer support team, but this is so uncomfortable to use it. Sometimes it goes like 10 minutes. Did anyone have the same issue as mine?
