I just picked up a pair of my own today for my work / transit headphones. Absolutely adore the sound already, it's an excellent headphone.
Been nervously looking over the "breakage" thread from a while ago... is this really happening much anymore? Seems like it happened mostly in 2008 when they were introduced. I plan on exercising extreme care, and storing them in the ATH hard case I've ordered when they're not in use.
