I took the dive and ordered direct from v-moda website (because amazon charges tax now). Since i have not tried them on yet and these are so very expensive, i hope my socks are blown off and that there is no ear pain for me . Anything less and they will be returned.
For any non-audiophile average consumer these are most likely the most expensive headphones anyone would normally buy for a long term investment
Hope you will be happy, please share your thoughts then.
