Very well put.

Great review! I love the pictures, as usual. Very interesting, even as I think I will never spend so much on a headphone for a very long time. Keep up with the descriptions of music, as that is what the systems are for. Any headphone that you review has some fierce competition, as seen in the Qualia just sitting innocuously on the sources or amps and right next to ED10.

I'm spending serious money at Elusive Disc on a monthly basis.  Some of these great remasters MOFI and other publishers come out now are simply out of this world.

 

The Qualia, as well as my R10s are two favorites or mine.  I believe the Ed10s--once the existing flaw is corrected--may have the potential to be elevated to a similar statue, although its SQ doesn't resemble any of the previous two.   TIme will tell whether it will happen.

nice write up, as usual Laz. what's the amp at the far right, a thunderbolt for your omegas?

Very enjoyable review.  I agree about re-cabling, and felt with the ED-9s and then ED-8s that, for their price they should have had better cabling as well, as the former had similar issues.

Thanks.  Yes, that's my souped up A-10. It was Ray's demo unit up until Can Fest in August, when I decided to ease his load and generously offered to take it off his hands.  I love this amp.  I just have one Omega, though, the 2nd 'stat' is my HE60.

Thanks.  It'll be updated once my pair has been serviced with new impressions, now that it's been fully burned in as well, in excess of 500 hours.

Who knows, you may be right, Dave.  But in my case, it's not just the drivers, but the TWag cable as well.

When Whiplash does the recable, do they open up the whole thing and change the connectors at the end of  the headphone (not the plug) as well ? Or do they just cut from the end of the connector and recable from there?

No, it's a full custom job.  Craig takes the whole thing apart and puts it back together.  That's why it takes so long to do it. Whiplash is an authorized Ultrasone Dealer, so the warranty remains intact.

Interesting take on this headphone from someone in another HiFi community:
