Do you have one pair already, it says so in your profile?

LOL, i'm buying a safe to put these in... I was wondering where I could buy headphone carrying cases for these and/or other headphones of around equal size. I've seen other custom cases for the R10 but I'm not sure if they were made by its owners.

Nah! The R-10's will always be the King, just like the Orpheus in stat land.

well, lot of kings have had their heads cut off in the past... especially when their drivers
can't be replaced.

How bourgeois!

Well then, "Long Live the King"!

I'm calling mine Oliver Cromwell, he lived long enough to see death, not at the hands of his detractors.

Saw your pic, very nice condition indeed.

purk, i'm loving the R10 and the CD3000 on Mike's SDS. I think I'm going to have to track down some more WE396As. It's definitely kicked both phones into a new plane of sound.

Pepsi there is a set in the FS forum...they're really not THAT impossible to find, if you need help finding a set I could probably help you.

Out of interest how much do the R10s sell for and what justifies the price?
post #120 of 470
They sell for 100milion dollars (pinky to corner of mouth)
They are worth that because they are one of 3 headphones that there is a photo of me partially clothed with. (the other 2 being the AKG K240 monitor {it was my first time, what can I say}, and the Grado HP-2.)

Seriously:
4000 to 6500usd. you are 6-8 years late to the $2000 party.

Why:
They have a very unique sound. Nothing else sounds like these do. With at least several dozen choices for headphones that everyone assumes should sound good very few actually do after long term ownership and critical listening. Here is one of them. Do they have a "sonic character"? Sure they do! Do they consistently perform excellently on a wide variety of music over several aspects of quality (detail, soundstage, placements, clarity, instrument separation, etc)? Absolutely!
