There was/is a limited run, and that price is about right.

Are there any other headphones that are similar to these?

post #621 of 1115
check out the w5000 and w1000x woodies. dunno how similar they are to the w3000anv sound wise.

1.2K is still a generous price. Not sure if these will get to the heights seen by the L3000 which could sell a few K..

I think the L3000 were a much more limited run, maybe around 500 total?  $1,200 was around the price the W3000ANV cost to import from Japan when they first came out so it's still a relatively fair price for them.

for me, because of its particularity, the W3K is simply unique.I currently use on audio gd nfb 5.2, but I will soon move to V800 + V200 combo and I still hope more ...

I don't doubt the TH900 is probably technically superior to the W3k, but it's more likely the frequency response--the tipped up highs and recessed mids of the TH900--that'll determine, or make or break a person's choice between the two.
