  As part of CanJam 2014, we are holding a Scavenger Hunt and Giveaway (SHaG), where you can win amazing audio gear. Here's how it works:   You must pick up a SHaG card at CanJam @ RMAF. This card will fit in your event badge holder. Keep in mind that we will only have a limited number of cards (1000). The SHaG card will have the logos of the exhibitors participating in the CanJam SHaG on it. As you make your way through CanJam, make sure to stop by each and every...
Here's a link to the full-size photo. Zoom in with your browser to see the text in greater detail.http://cdn.head-fi.org/c/ce/ce54e3e3_DSC_5972.jpegThe MDR-Z7 did not come with a carrying case. It came with two home-length cables, one of which is terminated in dual 3.5mm plugs, for use with the PHA-3's balanced output, and one terminated in single 3.5mm with a 1/4" adapter. It's a large headphone, and it doesn't fold, so I don't think Sony intended this to be toted around...
I have to run to a family gathering now, but will say more about the Sony MDR-Z7 later. In the meantime, here are a few photos from a batch of photos I took of it when it arrived (along with the Sony MDR-1A). If you click through to the full-size, original versions of these photos, you can clearly read the boxes (if you're interested).                
Thanks for the introduction, TheInquisitive1! Given your username, I imagine you'll have no problem looking for good discussions that you may have questions or posts to contribute to.   See you on the forums!
Seriously, fellas, work it out via PM if you insist on continuing this. This is something that doesn't need to be played out here.   This is also a heads-up to let you know that some posts may be pruned.
Philips announced the Fidelio NC1 today, which is the first active noise-canceling headphone in the Fidelio line. I am a big fan of the Fidelio line, so I have high hopes for another solid travel headphone choice. In terms of styling, the NC1 looks to me to be inspired by Aedle's gorgeous VK-1, so it certainly has the looks. It'll be arriving at Head-Fi's office soon, so I hope it sounds as good as it looks. Philips audio engineer Rowan Williams assures me they've worked...
And the Sony MDR-1ADAC:       And, in this blog post, Sony also announced the new Sony Walkman NWZ-A17 and Sony MDR-1A headphones.
 I didn't get the impression that information was necessarily public info, and I didn't see it mentioned anywhere ahead of time (or since), so I think perhaps I'm not incorrect with that impression.
I always say that my word is just one man's opinion, based mostly on my head (I've asked others about the comfort on their heads) and only my ears--it's no more than that, and I'll never tell you otherwise. Clearly, there are people buying the Mo-Fi (I think Amazon's first batch sold out), so you'll have more opinions to sort through probably sooner than later. I'm obviously not alone in liking the Mo-Fi, and I know there are going to be those who don't. Again, you'll be...
 I can wear the Mo-Fi through an entire work day without issue. I think it's a very comfortable headphone, considering its weight. I think for some, though, it's going to be too heavy, especially to those who aren't used to heavy headphones (and/or for whom the headphone just doesn't fit well, for whatever reason).
