Got them tonight, they are demos. I have only got an hour on them, but they kill my Grado 125s in every category, except price.
The last photo is a 1:1 life size macro. They look mint to the naked eye. The metal has a slight dull finish and is very smooth to the touch. You can see from the pictures the metal has a "flecked" (lack of a better word) appearance; I think they are just gorgeous.
No one else has mentioned this, but if you have a small head and want the PS1000s you might have a fit issue. My head is average-plus in size, and I almost have the phones as small as they will go. So, small headed head-fiers keep that in mind.
OK, enough chat -- Music time!
