Continuing the resurrection ritual...
Is this semi-reversible?
Very nice looking. I like the headband padding it looks wider then the CAL's or the D1100's. Does the headband make any creaking noises when the cups swivel? That's my biggest complaint with the d1100. If I yawn or move my jaw I can hear a creaking noise from the plastic. I don't remember the CAL having that problem.
The headband has a more oval-like shape length-wise indeed. Padding is fairly adequate considering the headphones weight next to nothing (180 g without the cable, it would be hard to make a lighter fullsize closed-back headphone).
No creaking noise coming from the headband when swiveling the cups, and I don't recall hearing any mechanical noise when putting them on, using them (and walking with them) and removing them. I say “don't recall” because I left them in storage at my mother's house and it has been a while since I've used them.
