There are dual microphones for voice quality during phone calls. These cans use Bluetooth 5. They paired quickly and reliably with several phones, TVs, and PCs. Drop includes a carrying case, a USB-C cable for charging the headphones and a 4.
One was thoughtfully provided with my review unit and I found that it works quite well. Someone at Drop must have had the same experience and made this one suitably tiny and dim. I immediately thought back to when the movie Earthquake introduced subwoofers to movie theaters. Yes, a dated reference. I certainly appreciated it when viewing other movies, as well.
The Panda is a far more handsome package, and also a more comfortable one. Isolation is markedly more impressive on the Panda, which also manages its weight far more comfortably via a more even clamp-force. By comparison, the Mobius does tend to hand from the headband on the top of your head, and the cups do flap around somewhat.
It also has a greater sense of air, and more space in the sound stage it creates. Of course, the way each headphone goes about creating the sound is entirely different — the Panda has been tuned acoustically and can work happily as a passive pair of headphones, whereas the Mobius uses DSP which cannot be switched-off nor defeated.
The Mobius does have a slight audible background hiss that is evident when music is not playing but is otherwise not a problem if music is playing. The Panda also edges the Meze out for air and detail in the treble, as well as for comfort and isolation. This last comparison may seem a little strange, but the HD6XX identical sonically to the HD is the headphone that put Drop on the map in audiophile circles.
The HD makes the Panda sound lean, snappy and slightly brittle when switching between the two. Panda can be powered passively via its 3. Just consider me wholly impressed — being able to use wired mode is a terrific convenience should the battery run-flat, or if you simply want to plug the panda into the source you just so happen to be using. And when you combine this with the fact that is has a hour battery life and pretty great comfort, I could genuinely see myself using the Panda all day…from leaving the house in the morning…at the airport and onto a flight…into a cab and then off to the office…and then finally back to a hotel to relax with some music or movies — all on the one set of headphones, on the one charge.
Not bad, not bad. Count me in. Hailing from Sydney's eastern beaches, Matty runs his own beer business, 'Bowlo Draught', as well as working in creative advertising. When he's not enjoying his hifi and vinyl collection at home, he can probably be found rolling-up on the green at his beloved Bondi Bowling Club. Great review! These are on the list now! Seen a lot of reviewers raving about them already, but this review is a bit more thorough then the rest of them.
Great job! Cheers Peter! I hope it gave you a good idea as to what we can expect when the launch version arrives. About Panda vs Meze 99 Classics — which do you prefer was more comfortable? Do you think that Panda had bigger and softer pads or how was it? How does one get hands on a panda in Australia. I think nowadays would be a lot harder, I got my pair in Australia via the Panda was still in crowd funding stage on Indiegogo. Now you can only purchase it through the official website on Drop.
Hi Matty, you did a fantastic job. Can we say that Drop Panda is the best sounding wireless headphones currently available on the market? Have you listend to them as well? I'm really keen in this and as far as I know, this is the only wireless headphone which has an emphasis on sound quality.
Another thing which makes it interesting is the use of driver technology from the previous oppo PM headphones together with the THX amp tech. Joined Jan 20, Posts Likes Sound Trooper said:. Click to expand Let's hear more about "Full-System Sound". Gabsriel Head-Fier. Hi, Is there a chance that swapable memory foam pads will happen? The earpads of my PM3 are too fragile and getting flat too early.
More emphasis on treble than the PM3, and we're good. Joined Jan 7, Posts 1, Likes 1, I will wait for the details on the response curve but DSP would have probably kicked me into a more interested consumer. Gabsriel Earpads are designed to be user-replaceable and various earpad options will be available in the future.
A1ll Pandas will ship with user-upgradable firmware. WillBright said:. Joined Oct 31, Posts Likes As an owner and lover of the PM-3, color me interested. I live miles from the office though, so don't expect to be able to make it to the launch partay. I'm surprised there's not more hype around this. Was this ever announced on the Head-Fi homepage? I usually skip straight to the forums, so I don't see all the announcements, features, etc. I'm particularly interested in this tidbit: WillBright said:.
It's the PM3 driver with damping improvements. We acquired the Planar Ribbon tech and all existing driver designs from Oppo and redesigned the damping system to resolve some of the darkness that the community didn't like about the PM Joined Nov 29, Posts 1, Likes Now that is one that is surprisingly not getting the hype it deserves, in my opinion I'm particularly interested in this tidbit: I've always found the PM-3 to be a bit boring except with tubes , so I'm curious if the addressed darkness will also resolve some of the boring-ness?
Will there be or are there measurements that compare the Panda and the PM-3? Can we see 'em? Pretty pleeeeaaassseee??? I suggested Oppo. Sony has the WHXM3 and the WH-HN which both are geared towards audiophiles with advanced driver tech aluminium or titanium coated diaphragms, extreme wide frequency response and LDAC, both are affordable and both sounds pretty good.
But more competition is better of course!
