    The steep price has been putting me off - also some reviews mark them down for poor comfort, which is a bit of a deal breaker for me.

    However, I recently had my first hearing test in 15 years and the results were more than a bit disappointing so they are back on the cards - hopefully with some New Year discounting on Amazon.

    for wireless headphones these are fabulous sound wise. Might take a little while to get used to the queer shape and to an extent the aural experience.
    I can get up to 6 folk 20% off too, which is a bit rich seeing i paid full price ... these are just first impressions, but wirelessly I think they are beating Oppos certainly damn close, and thats Tidal from my iphone via bluetooth.

    PS, i did another ear test and am using this one; think i set the first one a little close to the action.

    These were already set up with latest software as well so didnt have to go through an update.

    Default Bespoke Headphones?

    Put 20% into battery. Changed tips to medium. Better. Much more comfort now. They come with the large ones on.
    The test continues but so far very impressed.
    Excellent placement of instruments. Strings are superb
