He's not being mean...? Well, probably not inherently mean. The W10VTG was created in 1996 and has the double wire headband (although AKG started using it much before), and a suspension system with (I think) the ATH electrets in the 70's.
Anyways, I'm super interested in these, especially the A900X.
And keanex, you realize that the minute you buy an AD2000, the AD2000X will be released.
