I am so in love with these phones right now. Good thing my girlfriend is away right now or else she might feel ignored. Anyway, it was 9am saturday morning and i was woken up by the inter-com. I thought, who the hell's buzzing me at 9am in the morning. Then i opened my eyes and looked out the window and saw the USPS delivery truck. YIPPIE!!!!! I jumped out of bed and ran barefooted downstairs. I wanted to hug the postman but he was already gone.
There, on the floor in the lobby, lay the 595s. Ran back up and opened the box slowly and carefully, savoring the moment. My sr60s were on the side table next to my bed. So i put them on while opening the box. As soon as i got it out, i inspected them really closely. PRISTINE condition. So i A/Bed them with a bunch of music from, acoustic to live concerts to classical to acapella, jazz, basically everything. Total time spent in bed before i had to get up cos i was too hungry, was 3 hrs.
Man, these phones are awesome! and they're not even burned in yet. When i listened to Nora Jones, Nirvana unplugged, Eagles, Vienna Phil live, i felt like i was there in the front center block. I literally had goosebumps. Also, i tested them on my Rio Carbon and Laptop. I can't wait to get a better soundcard and other stuff ( Sorry Mr Wallet ).
I can't really go into the technical aspects of it. All i can say is, there is a lot more space than i'm used to. Everything is very well balanced. Nothing seems to jump out at you. It is super comfortable, hardly could tell it was on. It smells great ( new headphone smell LOL ).
Btw, i got em for $180+ from yogi computers. A storefront from techbargains. Really prompt with email replies. 2-3 day shipping free.
Ok, now, gonna burn in these babies.
