It's disappointing to see they didn't do anything to revise the leather headband as it's actually less comfortable than the older foam one. Still, this could be a non-issue if the cups turns out to be much lighter.
The $1995 price is interesting because it puts them above the other dynamic flagships straight into higher-end STAX territory. At that price-point, I do expect to see some MAJOR improvements.
Yup, me too. At this price point, I fully expect them to cleanly beat the 007s and hopefully match/beat? the 009s, Orpheus, R10s, etc. If they do manage to get into the 009, etc. range, I would consider them a bargain at $1945
