I'll update when they show. Here's hoping.
For what it's worth, Elecom has taken their dual front and rear magnet structure from their previous models, and also kept the MLF ( multi layer film )diaphragms as used in the last higher end semi-searchlight-looking 3000 series. Brass rear housings apparently. The new Hi-Res EHP-RCC1000 models are out now, at least on Yahoo Japan. I see the "A" ( non-mic )...
One incredibly good option:   http://www.head-fi.org/t/474204/ultrasone-hfi-680-are-wonderful-and-better-than-hfi-780   http://www.head-fi.org/t/353043/where-is-the-love-ultrasone-hfi680   http://www.head-fi.org/newsearch?search=ultrasone+680   and an overall thread on the brand.http://www.head-fi.org/t/569107/ultrasone-fan-club-roll-call   Unsure about how they are driven without amp, I always use DAP's and amps also.

From what I have read, if I recall correctly, the biocell failure over time could likely be a myth(?)

No. CD3000 are not likely to ever drop in price unless they are thrashed. Superficial stuff like pads and headbands, there's always ways around that to duplicate them. Even if...
Fostex Incremental Mods & Measurements
ah sadly located in Canada so cost too much. Appreciate the offer.   There's got to be some pads that work, finding them is another matter. Wonder how velours of some kind would fare, but it is the ear depth you are talking about mainly for comfort issue I think right?
