Those white ones look really out of place for some reason..

On the other hand the pink ones look great.. Maybe i should grab a pair for my sis .
Oh right, she's cute as well. mustn't forget that .

I guess I'm lucky that way?
I couldn't agree more on both things .

No those suggested retail price is far above what what you pay wholesale.

For example headphones that has a suggested retail price of $700 and the street price is $500.

Guess what I have news for you the suppliers buy them for $200 USD when buying wholesale.

Yup you heard correct.

Now tell us how you really feel!

Crap is definitely a strong word considering that I like my W5000 just as much as my Stax.

The street price in Japan is always BS. AKG K701s are $900 or so here.

Now, do I have an excuse to trek into Yodobashi Camera to see if they have a demo pair. The store here is completely retarded, with no demo versions of most of the expensive cans. I might get lucky though, who knows.

I agree with you there. Saying the W5000 is "crap" is way too harsh, sure it has it's shortcomings like it's pickiness and affinity with hi-end amps/sources.
But if paired properly(ala ATH-HA5000 or such) they will really shine. Then again i only have a pico to go by, but they aren't half bad!

W5000 = crap is harsh. But they do not live up to their price. That's about it.

The A2000X is out now! Please tell us what it sounds like.
