It is smart for Zach to branch away from the T50rp model.  Fostex has/had 100% control of his headphone business...
 With USPS, sometimes the package travels and the paperwork of loading info lags behind.  I've received a package while still showing no shipping activity online...
I look forward to everyone's impressions.  I had a very good listening session with these, and I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's opinions with their personal amps.  Seems to be another polarizing headphone...
 Oh about $500 extra...
 I like the Mojo case. edit - I just saw the Dingus link
 Listen to the combo first, even single ended should be great out of the Jot...
 If you're careful, you can bend the metal sliders a bit to ease the clamping force.  Just don't put pressure on the plastic headband.  Not sure about the carbon fiber.  Never heard that before.
 You can also reterminate the Kimber like I had done...   And another thanks to @PETEREK...
I know its a new headphone, but has anyone tried this headphone with the Focal Elear.  The Elear is mid bass heavy, and I'm wondering if the Jotunheim would help control that mid bass by tightening it up.  Or would the combo cause bass so intense, that your eyes bleed and vomiting is induced?
 The WA2 is a slower more syrupy amp.  I think its not the best HD650 pairing.  More of an HD800 kinda amp.  Might want to check out the WA6, because its a bit more speedy.  And there are even faster tube amps (The Zana Deux Super comes to mind), but they come at a hefty price. Solid state stuff is also a good suggestion. The Schiit Jotunheim looks like a real winner with the HD650, and I hope to audition one, in the coming weeks...
