One of the current in-production best!


My primary cans - visit for more info on these.

Highly resolving cans that will reveal everything down to the very miniscule detail of an album. Very professional looking with high quality wood cups. Surprisingly open with a huge soundstage for a closed headphone - ideal for orchestral genres....

Will require solid amplification to make them sing @ their best. Do not purchase these if you don't plan on shelling out on a decent headphone amp! Potential fit issues will arise if you have a small head - can be resolved by bending the metal rings...

Awesome headphones, beware of fit


This is one of the two best current-production closed headphones on Earth (the other being the Stax 4070). Just be glad that you can buy it through newegg rather than importing it from Japan.

Very high resolution ; Excellent 3-d soundfield positioning and size, especially for a closed headphone ; Very efficient and can handle very high volumes without trouble ; Super sexy looking

Earcups have limited swivel from the headband, which means that these headphones may not fit you properly. Quite a few folks have tried my pair only to have the headphones not seal at the top or bottom of the head. It's hard to tell if they will fit...
