Just reporting in to say my DR-150 arrived some days ago.

There was an issue with my first pair, something was going a miss when reaching for deep sub-bass frequencies, a resonance going through them, it would make vocals vibrate and sound like the bass note collapsed under SPL pressure, it was ok at lower volumes though after reaching a certain level was an obvious problem. I don't know which side driver as it appeared to come from both sides using a balance switch.
After testing further I just bought another pair straight away before sending the others back to Jaben.
Apart from this small problem I absolutely admire the value this headphone offers. From the comfort, build, appearance, ability to wear while laying down, soundstage, detail, tone, imaging, I don't think I need to say anything more that's already said about Goldring DR-150. I absolutely love them so much rather than get a refund on the faulty pair I'm having them replaced with a second unit as I don't know how easy these are to find anymore. For the $50 'shipped express' I picked mine up I simply couldn't give up getting another set. I would have paid double easy and still be chuffed.
I'm running mine with DX50 / JDS C421, and couldn't be happier at the moment.
Thanks for everyone who contributed to the thread, if it wasn't for this thread and you guys I wouldn't have taken a chance.
