I think they're priced about right, considering the amount of labor/boutiqueness of the product alone. But based on fidelity, we're saying a closed headphone almost approximates a $1000 open headphone, one that's even more big/cumbersome and considered one of the better values out there. Aren't they a relative value when you take that into account?
Let me put it another way. Even one of these fully kitted out w/ O2 pads and exotic wood/woodwork will come out less than a Denon 7000, and that doesn't even use real leather, and I doubt the Denon stands a chance sonically... perhaps a Lawton Audio one does, but then you've doubled the price. Yet the D7000 is quite a popular headphone.
