This is really encouraging to hear, coming from others as well. It sounds like it may actually be a substantial upgrade to the original, more than just a piece of felt. It will be interesting if there are some who prefer the sound of the original over the "S" as more impressions roll in.
 Nice. I'm in. I keep re-reading these early reviews and the wood cups are just too gorgeous to pass up. I really can't wait to get these on my head. I was in the 700's when I jumped in, maybe I'll get #777 and win the Powerball.
I agree, and this is exactly why I'm firmly on the fence now. The HD 650 on the Crack/Speedball could damn near be endgame for many people. The TH-X00 would be a fun "side-headphone" for me, but I'll also never use it as a portable. But knowing that it's at least on the level of a well driven HD 650 isn't making me as excited as I was when I saw the drop hit this morning. I may still cancel while there's still time...Grizzly you may get one step closer to your 0001 edition ;)
I don't really understand what the importance of getting a low serial number is...people really care that much? Do they sound better or something?
Thanks for the insight Jude! I've actually owned the HD 650 twice, and it is indeed a wonderfully scalable headphone so my expectations are now at a more realistic level.Even on the best setups though I've always felt the HD 650 bass could be just the slightest bit tighter. Would you say this is something where the TH-X00 excels?
The TH-X00 is limited to an initial run of 1950, so it may not be readily available if you decide the dt1770 isn't for you. The massdrop deal will definitely sell out today.
Considering Jude's review said that he'd comfortably recommend them at double the price, I'm very much expecting these to perform better than the HD 650. Although hype can be a powerful thing. In a perfect world these will be more fun (and much more comfortable) than my LCD 2. Worst case, they shouldn't be too hard to re-sell at minimal loss.
Screw it, after I read (or at least gathered) that Jude seemed to prefer the TH-X00 bass to the LCD-2 pre-fazor, for that price ...I had to bite.
SOLD!
Nah. My buddy had a similar setup. I like it.
