OK, haven't done this before, forgive the poor pictures-iPad->email->upload, probably would be better quality with my digital camera, but thought this would be easier to manage (actually didn't really turn out that way).
Anyway, I'm not the headphone guru DS, Dannybai, EricP10, and the other SUPREMUSes (?SUPREMI?) out there are, but I've listened to good gear for a long time, and am amassing a rediculous collection of headphones over the past year or so, so here goes. This is a matter of taste, of course, what your sonic preferences are, but I think these Martin Logan's are the real deal, especially at what look to be current prices. I think they are probably worth the $300 list (though, at that price and, I'm not sure price and "worth" is so easily correlated. Suffice to say I think they are competitive with the phones I've heard in the $100-$400 range, though that is by no means an exhaustive list, pretty much what's in my profile). At the discounted prices, I think they are worth it even if you HATE the sound preference, just for the look and feel of them (the leather is the best looking/feeling I've come across outside of expensive furniture). Here's the package:
Nice solid box, feels like luxury when you first open it...
Not sure how easy it is to see, but the case us actually black, leatherette (not like the headphones), solid but light, has a little pocket inside that holds the removable cable.
Here they are, definitely the ones I own I'd most like to be seen outside in! As I mentioned earlier, they aren't bass monsters, they are very finicky as to how you position them (even slightly off and you lose the bass, it is there when on correctly, controlled, rhythmical, but less than my Senn 650's or AT A900x in amount, going from memory, haven't directly compared yet). The design in on ear, ane the cups angle forward in a funny way and have slight angle as well. They do clamp a bit tightly as well, some might find this all uncomfortable, I'm usually very sensitive to all this (and like iem's better as a result, though fit on those is another story), but, in my short time with them, haven't found comfort to be a major issue. LOTS of detail, imaging, fun IMO
