Waiting for Tyll to get his hands on them for a full review, that's a whole lotta cabbage.

It may be a while, since the TH900 is a Japan-only product and available in very limited supplies. I don't think Tyll has reviewed other such headphones from last year like the W3000ANV yet. It probably wont happen until someone who owns one decides to send it his way.

He didn't like the T5p and loved the Skullcandy Aviators, my view there is inverted, so whatever his TH900 review says I'll think the opposite. =]

LOL.  1.5 Tesla?  .5 more than the T1, it must sound amazing considering how...um...yeah...

 

Is this like the megapixel wars but with magnetic flux?  A 15 megapixel cell phone camera must make amaaaaazing pictures!!!

Can we just fast forward to the Nikon D3 of the headphone world?

Yeah but when holding the T5p up to a screen compared to different headphones it looks like they have 0.06 Tesla or a VGA mobile phone camera in them.

Wow, that's pretty ridiculous. My only imported pair of headphones so far were Audio-Technica ES10s from AccessoryJack. I think it took a week at most for them to arrive. Looks like their prices have also shot up quite a bit since then. Lame.

What's up with the Nikon D3 maverick?

 

I don't see how the drivers Beyer created analogise to 12MP cameras. =(

 

For the record I don't really think the T1/T5p are worth $1k when people ask me, but I like the T5p better than all other ~$1k HP's I've tried so in that sense yes.

IIRC that's the one that all the photo-geeks love.  RD wants to skip straight to straight to that level and past pretty much all the the current headphones on the market which he thinks are seriously flawed.

I think RD is a diy'er and makes her own headphones, though.

That's because he thinks pretty much everything on the market right now sucks so he's got nothing left to do but mod vintage 'phones.
