definitely agree. i have the s4's and hje900's, pannys are a significant upgrade from s4's and built like a tank. energetic sound, but the mids are slightly recessed on the panny's. only real gripe is the cable is kind of short, 1m, but still a great value considering the current pricing.
i also tried the custom 3's before deciding on the westone 2's, besides liking the sound of the w2's more, the klipsch cables annoyed me, as they did with the s4.
the dba-02's, they seem intriguing based on what i've read and attractive pricing, but it's been tough to get a set, which makes me wonder if its this hard to buy them how would it be like trying to get warranty service if needed?
