Massdrop x Noble X Universal IEMs Review

Noble Audio and Massdrop have teamed up for a drop of a Noble dual BA IEM.  It sounds like they will be a blend of the Savant but also the Savanna and Django models.  The link to Jude’s review on Head-Fi is below:

Sennheiser HD650 for 60% off retail (Massdrop HD6xx)

Okay, the HD650 can’t be purchased with that label for $200 but in only four days you can purchase the Sennheiser HD6xx for $199 from Massdrop.  According to Jude over at Head-Fi these two headphones are the actually the same.  So if you were interested in purchasing the HD-650 but couldn’t afford the $500 you can now purchase it for $200.

Below is the video review from Jude

New Fostex TH-Xoo Ebony Headphones on Massdrop

Massdrop has announced a new ebony cup TH-Xoo headphone.  Jude has comments on the new ebony cup headphone over on Head-Fi.  The ebony will be priced at $500 which is $100 more than the mahogany released a month or so ago.  According the Jude, these are his favorite of the three flavors of the TH-X00 headphones (mahogany, purpleheart and ebony).  The purpleheart appears to be the most “fun” of the three with the ebony being the most neutral.  According to Massdrop, there has been no change in tuning of the TH-X00 between each three types and the only changes in sound is due to the different wood used in the cup.

Fostex TH-X00

Bestula has just posted a great review on Head-fi of the TH-X00 headphones that have and are dropping at Massdrop.  One issue with the review is that bestula appears to primarily listen to the EDM genre so those of us who listen to jazz or classical will need to do some extrapolation.

I joined the purpleheart X00 drop earlier this month and can’t wait to receive them.

 

Summary:

Pros: refined, clear, detailed sound with fabulous bass quantity, quality and impact
Cons: non-detachable cables, limited availability, treble can be harsh for sensitive ears
