Wow, Tenso is fast. My ws99s are already here stateside and through customs. Now I'm just waiting for them to make the last leg of the journey.

 

Totally worth every penny.

EDIT: THEY'RE HERE.. OMG OMG OMG

Thanks. I had seen the cks1000 thread, also heard of the xb90ex.  I know the fxz200 isn't far off from the price of cks1000.  How do the 3 compare?  Don't mind spending extra for better quality.  I read on here somewhere that Cdjapan mark products as gifts, so no import duties through them?  As opposed to the amazon.jp and tenso shipping service, which gets hit with duties.

Ordered the MDR-XB90EX yesterday from AccessoryJack, Cost £86 Including Express shipping, looks like it'll be here tomorrow :D

 

Anything I should look out for in terms of checking if its real/fake ? should it be Made in China/Japan etc.

they are made in china. generally, if it doesn't feel like you can successfully hang yourself with them, then they might be fake biggrin.gif they come with lots oh sony hybrid and noise isolating (ones with foam under the flanges) tips and a weird cable clip and a case.

 

You don't have to worry though - AJ are reputable dealers, running a risk of getting a fake from them is almost nonexistent...

 

 

oh and burn them in with noises and frequency swipes at very high volumes. they do break in...

I say burn them in with heavy bass music on full blast for 300hr at least.

AccessoryJack doesn't sell fakes. They are very reliable, I've bought from them several times.

They value their reputation, or they would loose business. They are no Ebay.

So I was doing some shopping today and discovered thrift shops have music CDs that are in mint condition which cost me a dollar a piece. Found 7 great CDs today. Never would I have thought good music can be found at the local thrift stores.

I've been hitting up on a local Library that has CD's for $1 a pop. I've found Blue Note label jazz cd's, as well as many other rare or hard to find jazz cd's, plus some rare rock, alternative, and other CD's. I've spent easily over fifty in that Library in the last three or four weeks. They keep changing their selections as people donate stuff they don't want.

If your library does a books sale, chances are they also sell CD's.

 

On the other hand, I've stopped buying books because I have no room to store them all! That and the Headphone boxes that are piling up atsmile.gif

Great idea! I'll have to check the 'ol library out.

Lots of room in your kindle or tablet! I just recently got a tablet and have been reading ebooks on it. At first I didn't think that I would like reading books on it, but it's pretty slick. And I more often than not have my tablet with me, which means that more often than not have my book with me too :)
