While we're at it, since we don't allow people to flip headphones for a profit, and you seem to have bought them recently (going by the other classified you posted asking for a pair) please provide details of how much you paid for them, including a scan or screenshot of the receipt (with personal details blanked out). Thanks.
Please create only one listing.
Guys, just remember that a LOT of people go to impressions threads to read impressions, so try not to overdo the off-topic stuff. 
 The HE1000s are more like a 'stat, but with amazingly visceral bass, at least in the version I have. With some pad tweaks members have tried it apparently becomes more impactful, but at least with the gear I have, it is still more on the "light and airy" side of things. The Ethers are more like an Audeze planar in that it depends on the amp.

Their latest versions have galvanic isolation, which reputedly improves that.  It will be interesting to see if the V2 of the Geek Out does as well, as it was also vastly improved with a better PSU. The trouble they have, like any regular manufacturer, is that a regular dealer/distributor/marketing sales model can't compete with direct sales that have none of those three things.  Hopefully though I'll get a TT in for review, because irrespective of that, there are people...
