+1   ..... and for the price, it better be.  With proper amping there's no choice.   Unless it's gotta be closed.  Then the MDs are number 1 in my book.

There's no way I would consider paying $1000 for such a small upgrade though. The HD800, on the other hand, I might.

Well, in my case, it was a $500 delta and I consider it a desirable large upgrade.

Stand on the other side. biggrin.gif jk

 

Mine are the same way. Not sure if it's on purpose or an accident.

If you are referencing the headband "Fostex" the orientation is set by Fostex, we don't reorient anything.

Hummm they aren't as big as I thought they are next to the AKG.

I think the stock brass bars would look cool with the orange V-moda cable... biggrin.gif Anyone got pics of the MDs on one of those head shaped curve stands?

Since it's a sliding part, it might be better to powdercoat instead.

If you mean a stand like this:

 

I have one on order (zebra!). I'll post it when it arrives, but hopefully someone already has one on hand that they can snap shot.

Just got mine in, upgrade from the oldest shure 840 version to the new and improved alpha pads. This is a night and day upgrade. The comfort is a huge improvement over the shure pads and I can honestly say that these are most comfortable headphone I have ever worn (note with the comfort strap), and I have never had such a good seal over my ears. 

 

The sound is also improved by alot. I have to listen a bit more to say exactly what I hear, and maybe give them a comparison to the HE500.

Listening a bit to England Without Rain by Talk Less, Say More (you can get the full album in FLAC at Records on Ribs's site for free), and I've become even more impressed with the MD. They've become my default portable despite their bulk.
