Looks pretty nice...
...but $1299 nice?
It's a plastic closed headphone that lists at $200 less than the Ed8. It comes with a more appropriate travel case...

I had no idea those things existed.
Anyway, I'm very happy with my 1 month old Ed8 LE :)
For $1300, I prefer the Ed8. Can be found for $1,300 at amazon and cheaper at RMC audio.
The LE can be found for that cheap on Amazon? Link?
I was talking about Ed8 Ruthenium.
Ed8 Ruths can be found at $1,249 at amazon: http://amzn.com/B0026P4670
RMC Audio (autorized reseller) has Ruths for ~1,000.
I got my Ed8 LE for 1,300 from RMC Audio. Great service, great price, and great headphones :)
Yeah... those are sold by amazon. Their 30 day return policy is a pleasure to deal with. For paranoic people, I think that's a very good deal on Ed8 Ruths. You can return them pain-free if you don't like them :)
So I just listed my Ruthies on eBay for funds for my pug dog's medical treatment... figured I'd do better there considering the deal RMC is giving out.
One thing I never mentioned, I originally purchased these on eBay about a half year ago and they were only the phones/bag - no box or other materials. They were shipped from Monster Audio. Wonder if these were R&D mules, perhaps they're trying to progressively move upmarket?
Posting in this thread as a very likely purchaser of this fine pair of headphones. Thanks a lot to obazavil for the advice in the gaming thread. It will take me a while to get through all these posts. Crazy how many times I searched for a thread like this and couldn't find it (until I checked someone's profile)
