Thanks, good to hear that my impressions are shared by other qualified ears The HE6 is maybe my "if you had to live with only one" headphone. Using it with the m9 which is great, but I am really curious about those Firstwatts...Actually, to get back to the Leben - for music that doesn't require much bass control (like slow jazz, chamber music etc), the CS300xs and HE6 is quite delicious

The hum issue is almost exclusively with high impedance headphones for most people. A DC filter might help, i will ge one after summer
 There are two versions of the Leben's output. One is 1W the other is 0.8W. The 1W option is by special order - but it is just a matter of two resistors easily swapped by any tech/DIY. I have the 1W version. See here:http://www.head-fi.org/t/415214/the-leben-cs300xs-thread/1290#post_8731184
 I find it the opposite with both...
