Any higher-end Audio-Technica closed backs (or an Audio Technica Colab) would be great especially if you guys can redrop the a1000z ;)
But honestly, I only use full-sized headphones at home so noise isolation wouldn't really be much of a concern to me. IMHO I only treat closed back headphones as "Extra dampening/A way to change the sound" and not really concerned about noise isolation. If I need something for portable, I would use IEMs

Drop should make a DT88X
Throughout my time as an audiophile I've read quite a lot of positive reviews regarding the DT880 Pro, especially the 600 ohms version, I've seen it being highly praised for it's build quality, comfort and sound, however there is one fault I'd point out: no removable cables. As much as the DT880 Pro is marketed towards professional usage ( at least that's what I think, given the "Pro" in it's name ) it is adored by the audiophile community, thus I'd love to see a more audio-enthusiast focused version which only difference would be having a removable cable with a 3.5mm connector on each cup. I reckon the benefits would be quite sizeable : you wouldn't be confined to the 3m cable of the original version; it'd possible to run it balanced (which would help with the endeavour of properly amplifying the 600 ohms version); should the cable fail due to an accident or the throes of time dealing with it would be much simpler and , finally, if you are part of Team...

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.

How to connect my laptop to DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER
I have the Focal Elex. I plug it into the mini plug audio output on my HP laptop and listen to Youtube music, and some Wav tracks saved on my computer. How do I connect the following unit into my laptop to improve my listening experience? Do I need a special cable that goes from my laptop into the DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER ?

The upcoming Drop HD 800 in the works vs my existing Drop Focal Elex
I'm very interested in the upcoming custom Drop HD 800 https://drop.com/buy/drop-sennheiser-hd-8xx-headphones#overview. I'm aware some noted mastering houses use the older HD 800(S?) so that peaks my interest in them. It seems the Senn is sometimes used to identify any treble artifacts in tracks. I currently use the Elex, and I really like the relaxed, fairly accurate sound. 10 months of use now, and I just had the left driver fail. Drop is sending another new set as I type. I feel like I'm dealing with a finicky product with the Elex, and that is a drag, but the sound is working and I enjoy them. Oluv, on Youtube, compared the Elex and the HD 800S. The Elex was better in some ways, though some felt otherwise. I guess I could sell the Elex if the Drop HD 800 smokes it. I see that I can return the Drop HD 800 if I don't like it, so I just ordered it. Shipping in November 2021.

CTH + SDAC is on the fritz. Can someone help?
So I've been using my CTH + SDAC for a couple years with no problems. However, within the last month or so, I've been running into a few issues: some hissing in the right channel (which is only really audible at 0 volume) and sometimes there are clicking sounds from the box during which the sound cuts out. It seems like it's struggling to stay fully active for some reason. I just bought a replacement 6922 tube to see if that would fix the issue. It seems to have solved the hissing, but there's still intermittent clicks that cut the audio. It's the same clicking sound that happens when the unit's LED changes from red to white and allows audio through during normal operation, but it will happen repeatedly and quickly in succession, without the LED changing, and the audio will go in and out. Has anyone had this issue or know what's going on?
