My review is in: http://www.head-fi.org/products/wooaudio-wa8-eclipse/reviews/16620   I hadn't realised that Jack lent a unit to both myself an Anakchan. I was sitting here thinking that this might be more suitable for him to review since he is interested in serious portable gear, more so than I am. 
Mine just arrived. I don't know if they need any amount of use before they sound their best, but so far so good with some classical music. 
When you simply can't wait for the company to make an accessory:  
I'm wondering if an OPA627-based module wouldn't be good for people who like a warm and mellow sound signature.
Something I've noticed is that the way we perceive soundstage can result in more precise headphones and up-stream gear seeming to have a smaller soundstage than is actually the case. Because our brains rely on, among other things, frequency response to determine the size of a 3D space, a lower mid-range, such as in the TH900s, is interpreted by our brain as a larger soundstage.   When I upgraded to an amp that was faster overall, at first I thought that the soundstage was...

What would be interesting is now to compare the Utopias out of a DAVE to that system. One point I made in my DAVE review was that when I joined Head-Fi, the most expensive HP out there was the very dodgy $14k SinglePower Extreme. That amp turned out to have a...
Someone needs to let me know who is supposed to be compensating me for the $thousands I paid to go to the SF meet and the painful task of listening to these headphones and writing about them. 
I only listen to lossless music. APTx I tested with my computer.
