I have a pair on order--should receive them in a day or two. I recently sold my closed-back Audeze LCD-XC phones. They sounded great, but they were simply too heavy and uncomfortable. I mainly want closed 'phones for when the washer/dryer is running or my wife is watching TV in the kitchen. I'm sure I'll give up some detail and transparency compared to my Sennheiser HD800s, but they are only viable when the house is quiet! For the record, I mainly listen to classical music and a little jazz, so I don't need a lot of "bass slam"!

They arrived today--sound fantastic! Warm yet detailed. OK, maybe not quite as transparent and detailed as my HD800s, but they are vastly more comfortable than my previous Audeze phones.
