I've been traveling with the AK380 since Munich. I'm on the train to Rome with it now, using it with my JH Audio Roxanne (custom), and I've no doubt the AK380 is an improvement over my AK240. $1000 more? I'll give it more time, but a thousand bucks builds a long bridge to cross. I'll say more when I'm back home next week.
Of course, it does work through the leather case. (I used it with the leather case at Munich High End.)
At Munich High End this week, one of the most notable launches--at least in the Head-Fi world--will be Sennheiser's (now-leaked) Sennheiser HD 630VB. The cat's out of the bag, so let's start with some photos (click on them to see larger size):     The last time Sennheiser released a new headphone with the "HD" designation--with a number in the 600's behind it--it was the Sennheiser HD 650, nearly 12 years ago (in 2003). Whereas the HD 650 was rather a lot like the HD 600...
   @Bill-P (left) organized a fantastic meet, with the help of @HuddlerSteph, who's both a Head-Fi'er, and with Wikia. (Wikia is Head-Fi's San Franicsco headquarters.) Bill and Steph worked very hard to get everything just right, from name tags to layout, and much more. Thanks very much, you two, for all you did to assemble an awesome event.   @HuddlerLuis was also a huge help both before, during, and after the event.   The elf and the Baron. The short one's me...
 I'll post my pics later today. In the meantime, I wanted to say that I inadvertently took home a 12-outlet Belkin power strip. I brought one, and came home with two. Here's a photo of it:  If this is yours, please let me know, and I'll have a replacement shipped to you posthaste. (Sorry about this!)
 @aamefford, don't run your PM-1 single-ended on my account, especially if you have the HA-1 to drive it with. As for the ETHER: I only had an hour of sleep, so I can't quite remember if I packed it or not, but I'm pretty sure I did. If I did, I only have a single-ended cable for it. When I get off this plane, I'll double-check and let you know whether or not I packed it.
Does anyone have a balanced OPPO PM-1/PM-2 cable that I can borrow for the duration of the meet?
 I'm hoping there's enough Audio Wipes to have some left over for people to take a couple/few with them after the meet's over. And, yes, I'll be bringing the Liquid Carbon prototype to the meet. I'll be bringing some IEMs (including the FitEar FitEar) for Moe and others to listen to (Moe loves IEMs), and whatever else I can reasonably fit in my bags--my Yggdrasils or Ragnarok wouldn't fit in any of my duffels, so it's a good thing others are bringing those! 
 Hi @htr2d2, You can find the image attached to this post! (Thanks to @warrenpchi for this.)   
 Sorry about your wallet.   If you want soft landing spots for your headphones, it wouldn't hurt to keep small cloths handy.  Again, this is something that wouldn't hurt to do.  If you're speaking more to the surge protection aspect, I'd recommend being as cautious as would make you comfortable to plug your stuff in. If you're speaking more to the outlet distribution aspect, power strips are usually helpful at meets.  I always run one output at a time from my Macs....
