Just a few words about the build, and some early impressions.
These are built like a tank! It feels really sturdy and well made. I don't know, some impressions here made me feel it was a little on the cheap side but that's not the vibe im getting at all. As for the weight, it's a total non-issue for me. Again i was expecting them to feel like a brick on my head after reading posts here. I guess i have a strong neck, or everyone else has chicken necks! (kidding ) The stock pads are nice and soft, but i immediately put on the velours and they are certainly more comfortable. It was a little tricky at first getting them on but i got the hang of it.
The cable is also really long, i may need to get a custom one because all this length is going to waste on my desk.
Right now i have them plugged into my M-Stage. Gain at +10, volume meter at about 1'o clock, it's certainly plenty loud. I feel they may need some burn in. So far they haven't floored me like i expected, but then again i had my expectations really really high. I think i will grow to appreciate the sound with more head time, but for now they sound pretty good. I will certainly add to this with more listening.
One thing i should mention, i haven't yet detected any spikes in the treble. It all feels smooth, but then again i've only played a couple of songs. I have the rev2/3.5 as well, transparent/white housing inside.
More to come :)
