I sold off my Sennheiser HD 600 and got some different ones. I actually did not get around to updating my sig until I was sure I liked them. Good thing I followed my instincts: I loved the Pioneer SE-A1000 to bits, which I have raved about a lot here in the forums--more than the HD 6x0, Q701/K702 and DT 990/DT 880/DT 860 I have demoed or owned. The funny thing is, I just got a Phonak Audeo PFE and installed gray filters and none of the headphones or earphones I heard...
When going for b stock or open box headphones, it is a luck of the draw sort of deal. A year or so ago, I had the lucky experience of purchasing a $130 used, like new AKG Q701 from Amazon Warehouse. It actually turned out to be a new, unopened box holding the older Austrian model. Personally, I don't care if a pair of headphones is new or used so long as all of its sound performance is still there and its physical build is still intact and looks decent.
Having owned both, I believe the HifimeDIY is on par or better than the ODAC. I will likely get the HifimeDIY in the very near future because the ODAC offered nothing over it for me. (For your information, I have listened to all these headphones to date, many of them with my signature's listed equipment:) [[SPOILER]]  The HifimeDIY has better crosstalk performance and, given its inferior testing equipment compared to the ODAC's testing equipment, it has likely equal or...
Already published. See three comments above in the post by GearMe. 
A quick public service announcement on the status of the Phonak delays from last week: due to the unexpected heavy snowfall in the Northeast and the supplier switching warehouses, Earphone Solutions had experienced a week delay for Phonak Audeo PFE earphones during last week's sale. However, as of today, having spoken to the owner himself Flavio Teixeira and seeing my original tracking number suddenly show updated progress, I can confirm that the products have indeed...
Do it! Pioneer's products, whether the Andrew Jones line or the SE-A1000, have always seemed to surprise me.
Any sealed Sony headphones. Any of them that I have demoed (e.g. MDR-V6, MDR-7506) sound like I am listening to music as if it were a cell phone playing through a seashell. Incredibly overrated, and even more now thanks to this site's so-called professional reviews: http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/the-best-150-over-ear-headphones/ The ATH-M40X is leagues better in control, resolution and soundstaging. How anyone could even like those Sony's must hear with their eyes, not...
They are so good that I have worn them already several times walking to and from college. I figured they aren't Jecklin Floats so I won't look like a total idiot sporting them on the street. My Phonak's that should ship Wednesday should take care of my on-the-go audiophilitus and all its side effects.
Why can't I stop raving about these? I am listening to Song for Guy by Elton John on these and I still cannot believe how balanced and yet how clear these Pioneers are. I think I may have heard speakers that approach this clarity only a couple times in my life. And headphones? Yes, the HD 800, but these Pioneers are slightly sparklier and noticeably more dynamic in the bass and midrange such that the music just breathes without sounding forced or rushed. This is so...
Pad rolling sounds like fun. Which pads will fit SE-A1000?
