I think the Elear will hit the high-end hp market hard. Performance, build, design, comfort, and price will make it very difficult for others to compete. I'm buying one too with Nordost Heimdall2 upgrade cable when it's in stock.
Thanks for sharing this Ethan. Jack Wu and I will be at the event to showcase WA234 MONO + Abyss with Superconductor bad ass cable. Dan (MrSepeakers) will also be at the event with the new ETHER-E electrostatic headphone. The guys at AVSF are really cool cats and it'll be a fun night.
I've been using this for a few years with good results. Keep in mind that some DVD concerts are mastered very poorly so your miles may vary. I recommend to export in AIFF or WAV 16/48kHz or 24/48kHz DVD native.
