I tried, guys. I swear I did. I've had the cans for the past several day and I tried a lot to get through my pain points with it and I just couldn't. Although it is just a beautiful headphone, I couldn't overcome the lack of support, lack of seal, uncomfortable pads, and large amounts of noise leak. They're in a box being shipped back as we speak. I loved the signature at times, but I just can't ignore the fit and stability issues of winged headband on any AT can anymore. Maybe you can say I didn't give it time or didn't warp the hell out of the band enough, but I've had more than enough experience with the winged bands from other AT cans that I knew right away no compromise I could make with it would make me happy.
So I'm back to looking for another very nice set of closed cans for home use. Suppose I will set my sights back on the D5000 (although I know it leaks even more than the W1000X) and Alpha Dogs. Coincidentally, reviews for the Focal Spirit Pro and Classics came out today and they were good enough to put on the WoF, which is impressive. We'll see how it goes, I suppose.
