Forget about being portable (too gorgeous to take out of the house, and who wants to risk a subway mugging over these beauties). However, when I must exercise my braggin' rights the HPP5 case is perfect protection. I purchased the ESW10 relatively new (with less than an hour on them), and have put another dozen or so hours on them since they arrived, and they seem to be starting to open up with use. Not sure how much time needs to put on them before they reach their optimum, and am wondering if I should just use and burn or speed up the process using pink noise. If I had the cash, I'd love to purchase a second backup pair, but it seems that new models are now hard to come by and current owners don't seem to want to be parting with theirs anytime soon, so they are likely only to escalate in price. Any idea what they are now going for? Anyways, this is my firstever pair of Audio Technicas, and I think I chose wisely.

What sucks is that as they go up in value over the years we wont be able to capitalize on that, because we like them too much to sell. The HF-2 will be another one on that list of "no longer for sale and price goes up but we wanna keep them and listen to 'em" kinda phones...

So just get 2.

Or get backup drivers, cups, pads from AT.

Listening to them is the point, though!

I've been listening to mine a bit more lately as I'm midway through a recable on my HFI 780's, and I don't get stuff like that done very quickly.

My theory is that if I have 2 or 3 pairs of cans, each one gets a bit less use, and lasts longer...

If I didn't just buy an ESW9, I would have been all over this but alas, are the 10JPN's that much better than the 9's?

Gawd..do I LOVE these headphones! Check my signature - I keep coming back to these phenomenal cans - combined with my LD MK III and a proper source they are mind-blowing.

For anyone who still wants a pair just a heads up, there are a couple of pair for sale on the for sale forums.

Looks like everyone is gone now to JH13. This thread is very quiet.
