Mayflower Objective DAC/Amps available on Amazon

Did you know that Mayflower Electronics is also selling their Objective DAC/amps through Amazon? All but one ship directly from Mayflower (New York) so shipping is extra, except for the O2 ODAC Revision B which is fulfilled by Amazon and Prime eligible.

Just like Schiit Audio did back when they sold their products through Amazon [Schiit no longer offers their products thru Amazon], the Mayflower Amazon prices are slightly higher than their own website, presumably to cover the Amazon seller fees (which are not insubstantial).

Massdrop Objective 2 (O2) Headphone Amplifier for $95 + S&H [MD Daily Droppings]

This is a “daily dropping” at Massdrop. That’s not an official term though. Their term is “In-Stock Drops”. This is for products that they have available at their facilities and they can ship much faster than their usual drops.

I’m calling them “daily droppings” because each drop (offer) opens and closes on a 24 hour basis. So don’t worry about the countdown clock in cases like this, the drop will re-start after the current incarnation expires.

One of these is the new condition Massdrop Objective 2 (O2) Headphone Amplifier going for $95 plus shipping. They will ship two to three business days after the daily drop closes. Their 24-hour days are more like office-hour days than calendar-day days 🙂


This is the list of all their In-Stock Drops. I still prefer to call them as “Daily Droppings”, it’s more memorable and more self-descriptive and funnier 🙂

The current rotation of “Daily Droppings” includes:

  • Massdrop x Fostex TH-X00 for $400 or $500 (Ebony)
  • AKG M220 for $50 [or $45 with the Rakuten coupon)
  • CEntrance DACport Slim for $100
  • Massdrop x AKG K7XX (Black or Red Edition) for $200 each
  • Sennheiser PC37X Gaming Headset for $120
  • Massdrop MEE Audio Pinnacle PX in-ears for $114

Massdrop O2 + SDAC DAC/Amp for $150 [ships Jan 2018]

NOTE: this will ship at CES 2018 time. I repeat, this will ship early January 2018, so temper the excitement in the frigid lake of patience 😉

There are many solid options in the $100-or-less headphone amp or DAC or combo units, one of them is the legendary Objective headphone amp [lots of info and knowledge at the NwAVGuy blog], and Massdrop is offering their own co-branded O2 (Objective 2) headphone amp, fully unlocked for $80 plus $8~ flat shipping. Or for an extra $15, you can get the “Desktop Edition” with RCA inputs, 1/4″ headphone output, and rear power.

On the Way to Unlocking: Massdrop Objective Headphone Amplifiers for $78 to $103

As of the time of writing, this is not fully unlocked yet, it needs 33 more commitments in the next 20 days, so it is reasonable to assume this will unlock long before the deadline. It is the Massdrop Objective line of Headphone Amplifiers based on the NwAvGuy designs. There are three options when you checkout, the 1.0 version goes for $70, the 2.0 version (the one that headlines the listing page) for $80, and the Desktop version of the 2.0 for $95. Shipping is an additional flat $7.75.

IMPORTANT: the shipping estimate for these is mid-September 2016. That’s 3.5 months from posting date, so keep that in mind.
