Well mine came in the mail today. Fantastic. I probs won't take too many pics because everyone else seems to have that covered rather thoroughly. Probably just the numerous shields I have and whatever.
-Hot damn these things are way smaller than pictured. It's like a softball. You could probably even play softball with it (disclaimer: I'm not recommending anyone play softball with it)
-No note from Val. Sadface.jpg but oh well
-*holds up the headphones* Ah yes, now this is a quality built headphone. No evident defects on mine, either!
-oodles and doodles of goodies.
-I think I spent a good 20-30 minutes putting on my shields. I guess I'll only be swapping shields on a weekly-biweekly basis, lol
-Man, when I put them on I was a bit blown back by the bass, but that's mainly because I've been using the DT1350's for so long. The mids do sound less forward to say the least, but the evident bass emphasis is probably driving that placement.
-soundstage is pretty good for closed back. I do love that club sound for stuff.
Aaaaaaaaaaaand more to come later.
