Well, there were only 200 of those amps, so...

 

And 2000 of those headphones, worldwide, that goes fast.

 

There are more eager audiophiles & collectors than one thinks.

So, Timestretch, too late I'm afraid.

Wow, that was fast! I guess Audio-Technica's wooden cans have gained notoriety among audiophiles over the years. That, and there seem to be more audiophiles in general these days. Or at least more people willing to spend upwards of $1500 on a pair of headphones. tongue.gif

 

Glad I managed to get a pair reserved.

 

@ Timestretch: A few pairs will probably show up in the fore sale section sooner rather than later, once some of those who pre-ordered find the cans not to their preference or justifiable keepers for the price.

 

Let's just hope there wont be any gouging. Some of the rarer wooden ATs sell for way more than they originally cost.

Yeah, 200 amps for the entire world. I wouldn't be surprised if AudioCubes was allocated only 3 or 5 of them.

Just missed the boat yesterday by a few hours...congrats to the ones onboard :)

 

Eagerly awaiting impressions and hoping that AT releases some non-limited models with the same advances in technology as in these phones.

That's usually the case. The W2002 was the first one to have their humorously named "DADS" technology I believe, and now it's standard in all of the Art Series.

Pretty much all of them, but I'd imagine the rarer ones like the W10LTD, W11R, and W100 would go for more (relative to the original cost). More "common" ones like the Ear Suits, W11JPN, and W2002 probably less (relative to original cost).

Actually kind of weird, but for some reason what I really want to know is if this headphones include a carry case like the W5000.

That's not weird at all. I want to know if they have a nice case like that, too. That would be good.

I was actually surprised they sold them to me.  The sign they had said release date 11-18, which is tomorrow, but I asked, and they obliged!  Pics in a few, but listening will have to wait until i get home...don't have any good gear here in my hotel room :)
