Fully Unlocked (Massdrop): AKG K7XX for $200 and more

If you are a fan of the AKG K7XX open-back headphones, the tuned for Massdrop AKG K7XX (actual model name, the Xs are not stand-ins or variables), is offered fully unlocked (= lowest price possible) for $200 with free shipping. The K7XX is based on the K702 65th anniversary edition. Per the listing, these are the final 1000 units of the first edition of this particular headphone. As of the time of writing, 41 units got purchased from this listing. The listing ends in about seven days from today (= blog posting date).

Massdrop is the only retailer to buy it from, but that hasn’t stopped some people from trying to sell it on eBay at a high premium ($340).

Nowhere near as shiny audiophile wise as the K7XX, but also fully unlocked are the Moe Audio MOE-SS01 in-ears going for $42~ shipped. Uncle Moe currently goes for $50 at amazon but it only has two reviews there so far.

Last but not least in this Massdrop round-up, not fully unlocked yet (but has seven days left from today) are the Samson SR950 50mm driver over-ears, with the lowest price possible being $55 shipped. They currently go for $70 at various retailers including amazon where they average 4.4 out of 5 based on 14 customer reviews. It’s all 5s and 4s, except for one 1-star review.
