Oh just plug them into your laptop and see if it's bass light or not lol..

 

 

P.S If I was the luggage checker at the aiport, you'll never see them again...very_evil_smiley.gif

So no flight-case. But a classy-looking box.

 

They seem bling up to the cables!...

I just got notified by Audio-Cubes that my W3000anv have been shipped from Japan and they will arrive within next week! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Haha, what a flood of replies! =D Even more eagerly waiting for mine now...

Looks like mine will be arriving next week, probably around Thanksgiving time.

 

I'll probably end up buying a flight case or briefcase and transplant the velvet lining into it. That's what my W100 use, and it works pretty well.

Oh believe me I wish I could have.  I woke up this morning and they are just taunting me.  I have a Meier Audio Stepdance portable amp with me, which would probably do fine, but I have no 1/4" - 1/8" adapter, and they do not come with one :(

 

So for now I can only look, so I will torture you all along with me...

Man, those look really nice. I might have to sacrifice a few nights on the couch for these. But I guess I will to continue to "try" to wait until the honeymoon period is over. But if initial impressions are consistent(unlike the lcd-3's) I might have to pull the trigger.

hahaha skylab is teasing us, is like a headphone streaptease. come one babe reveal that beautiful headband of yours!

post #132 of 3597

LOL!  I didn't want to unpack it any more than necessary because I have to bring it back to Chicago tonight :)

post #133 of 3597

Can't wait to hear your impressions Skylab! Hopefully they sound as sexy as they look.

From your older posts I believe you and A-T headphones don't always get along, but I think you liked the W1000X.

 

post #134 of 3597

Right - the W5000 and the original W1000 I found to be too bass light, but the W1000X I liked a LOT.  So I am hoping this one has a little more bass weight like the 1000X did over the original 1000.

 

It's killing me that i cannot listen to them!

They look fantastic! I just recieved confirmation through my distributor that mine are confirmed and reserved from the european stock. The release here is actually after new year but he hinted that christmas might come early for some so I'm keeping my thumbs crossed :)
