I'd never even heard of this brand, but the reviews are stellar. I think it's time for a few listening sessions.

Did you buy them for home use? Headphone amp or no? Portable sound?

Do you own a set? If so, for home use or portable?

Why don't you think it'll work using a portable player?

How much power do you need to control Audeze?
No one portable player will give you requested.

The Oppo PM-3 is on my list of headphones for use at the office, or in hotels since my travel schedule has picked up. Looking forward to your impressions. How will you be using the Oppo PM-3, and what amplifiers will you be using?

You may see my head amp on photo. I described this unit in thread about my System.

I didn't buy it, guys from capital just sent me for evaluation. I am not planning any review for the moment. I am still under impression from AudioQuest Nighthawk, review is written, but will be published later on DAR.

First impression from PM-3 - satisfactory. No wow effect, comfort level - satisfactory, high frequencies - satisfactory. Low band - better then HF.

I would like to listen bundle PM-1 and HA-1, but I couldn't find it in Ukraine.
