Right now i'm in hardcore high res audio binge mode so earphones/headphones are extremely important for me at this very moment (got my hands on a bunch of 24bit/192khz (and below) audio files and some SACDs from rock to jazz/blues to a few pop, house and edm tracks to give it some variety), i joined my first massdrop recently for the jubilee 58x and would really like to have some other options on the table to decide what type of audio gear i like better and still havent had a chance with high-end in-ear monitors neither planar headphones, also i got a bit of an extra push/motivation since my girlfriend and her brothers like trying new headphones/earphones every once in a while so would be really cool to share the experience with them lending this pair for a while and bouncing back and forth opinions, at the end of the day this hobby is better when shared. Thanks for sharing something like this with some lucky winner.

forgot to mention that my current 'obsession' even took me to getting a software that checks if the audio files are truly high res as they claim or if their spectrograms reveal they are actually upconverted to flac from lossy sources, i'm just so into it right now that i like to test differences between different masterings and how sensitive i am to bit depth and sampling rates between high res and lossy sources.

Can this product handle 220v of power? I already have an adapter but I was wondering if I need a converter.

New to vinyl and read that the belt is a consumable part of the product; tried searching online for an OEM replacement or a size but haven't found much luck. Any tips?

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

Does the Sennheiser PCV 05 work on this headset? Will using that degrade the sound quality? (splitter to Apple dongle)

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?

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.
