If the 2500 (fully burned in) is 90% of an Edition 7, which outscored in all areas besides comfort, the SR-007, then I may be inclined to give it a test flight!
The 2500 is not 90% of the Edition 9, if this is true nobody will get the Edition 9 at 3 times the cost. The Edition 9's, is IMO superior in every aspect of the sound, details, bass, highs, and forwardness, even I feel the Ed9 to be more sensitive, as the drivers are closer, you need less power to drive them, also are IMO a lot more refined headphone...I feel it details wise at the same level of Qualia/Orpheus, with better bass extension...only complaint so far is the comfort, they are not as comfortable as those...
The pads are no interchangeable...the edition pads have a different grip, and the material is part fo the sound...
