    Anyone buying these should definitely get the analogue cable (15) and avoid BT if poss.

    More in depth pros and cons later when I have a had a chance to listen more
    which cable are u using Mike. Ive not bought any yet

    Been using mine every day now and they are superb. comfort is fine now im used to them etc. Hate to say it but they are better than my oppo planar/ headphone amp mix, which are no slouches. more of everything.

    Excellent Grant ... knew you would be impressed with the analogue cable

    These really are game changing cans, quite unbelievable what they achieve ... clean, detailed and very revealing.

    It seems that the claims made for these are justified. Having recently bought a pair of HIFIMAN 400i planar magnetics I cannot really justify buying these. However, should my hearing deteriorate or I need a need set of phones I will definitely consider these!

    Yup, they have kinda made my very good oppo planar's obsolete... and they are damn good cans. got them connected via cable to my headphone amp now.. magical.

    Still enjoying these muchly(Nuraphones)... been using them in different configurations with different sources. also i have definitely found that your hearing changes regularly and you do need to change your profile regularly to get best out of them. Also its wise to keep the immersion low ... Probably my best ever buy even though they were expensive.

    Heard a pair of the HiFiMAN 400i the other day against the Audeze LCD2 classic. The HifiMan 400i are superb!

    I'm very pleased with my 400i's but they do take a bit of driving. I adjusted the gain on my Caiman SEG and they sound great now.
