Congratulations :-) It seems there really are more than 3000 pairs... Interesting.

Good point, maybe they decided to stop below/at 4000 (and not 3000) in the end.

My guess is that they'll milk this until the K712 is stocked.

Mine have number 003588...

 

I love them, even if they are prolific!

Possibly... They really should re-do K1000. I mean not re-release but re-do!

I'd be very interested in that...

Yeah, definitely as well... After doing a broad research (including PMing you :-)) as well as asking other people and reading recent reviews on K1000 or K1000 vs HD800), I decided not to go for K1000 and stay with HD800. The majority of views favor HD800 and uncovered too many imperfections in sound of K1000 (quite surprisingly, I expected the soundstaging, imaging, separation and dynamics of K1000 to be near-to-perfect by design).

 

That said, if they invent better drivers...

Hmm, I consider the Annie to be an all rounder, not necessarily mastering any genre, but being great at many.

One thing I feel they do amazingly well is female vocals. Female vicals are very hard for headphones to get right, yet I felt the Annie was the best I've heard in that regard.

I'll take all rounders and great at female vocals, I'm excited, that's mostly what listen too. 1 more day.

Does it need a burn in process? or is it alright to listen straight out of the box?

 

Also, I'm mainly going to use for my desktop and I have FiiO E10 DAC (used by K701 before).

Will this thing drive the annie "good" enough or do I need an extra amp on top of my DAC?

Nothing needs burning process to be listenable you can listen to it straight out of the box . Some think that burning help to improve the sound , other don't etc , but if you want you can just use it without burning it will not hurt you .

 

Well E10 will do a decent  djob  ,  a better amp will improve things ,  but E10 is a good start to evaluate and enjoy the headphone and after if you feel the need upgrade the amp part .

Alright, thanks for the info.

 

As for the amp, do you have any suggestions? I've been looking for various amps and these stood out for me (thanks to RemOo recommendations):

1) Schiit Magni + Modi (200$)
2) Aune T1 (180$)
