Agreed, but I don't think smooth and euphonic are all these cans do. They have remarkable texture, presence, and tone, which are qualities that are *very* difficult to find in headphone listening. And I think that accounts for the "euphonic."  Tone, in particular, is poorly understood among audiophiles. Musicians who use string instruments or guitar amps seek out tone, but certain audiophiles claim that hi-fi components are supposed to be neutral, "wire with gain," and...
Well put, Pudu. They do the things that the very best audio components can do, and that vintage components—Altec and Tannoy speakers, the best classic turntables and tube amps—did better than modern ones. The 3000 reveals presence, color, texture, drama and scale incredibly well. These are the difficult things to accomplish in music reproduction, way beyond the usual categories like neutrality and transparency. I'm surprised how much people here on Head-Fi talk about bass,...
I went to he New York area meet a few days ago and had an ear-opening experience.The Sony R10 has long been my favorite headphone for its uniquely engaging and beautiful sound, a type of sound I haven't found elsewhere up to now. However—the one piece of equipment I was hoping to hear at the show was the W3000ANV, and fortunately Maxx134 brought his (with Alpha pads installed). I spent some time listening to it on various amps, and I liked it so much that I left the meet...
 I, too, would own the R10 over any headphone I've ever heard. However—the one piece of equipment I was hoping to hear was the W3000ANV, and fortunately Maxx134 brought his (with Alpha pads installed). I spent some time listening to it on various amps, and I liked it so much that I left the meet with it, having traded Maxx my HD800 with a Cardas balanced cable. I have to say that I'm in love—I think in terms of euphony, richness, presence and sheer enjoyment, the W3000...
Selling my lovely 1000x in perfect condition. These come with the Hifiman pleather pads, which sound far better than the underpadded stock pads, and the original box. I'm the second owner, having bought it from anbother Head-Fier, who must have kept them in a safe, since they show almost no marks of use. I've listened to them for less than 5 hours before getting the 3000ANV.    Please ask questions. Buyer pays shipping and Paypal fee, unless purchased as gift. Thanks!
Good to know, thanks!
Anyone driving from Brooklyn? Looking for a ride and will be happy to share expenses.   Thanks, Alex
Will happily attend, with a HD800 and an HD650. Will also bring the Geek Out 720, if it ships in time.    Anyone driving from Brooklyn or Manhattan that I can split gas with?
Excited to be there. By any chance, is anyone bringing an AT W3000ANV? Still haven't heard it, and dying to.
