My sentiments exactly. It looks like most of the money went into expensive and luxurious materials and not build quality. I'm not that big into wooden headphones myself, since my wooden coffee tables, office tables, wooden floors and my wooden bed frames are of a higher craftsmanship than any "Woodie" headphone I've seen, including the Audeze LCD-3.
You've never seen the TH900 then.
@DF: nice thread ****ting, bro. These probably aren't viable for my mobile needs either, but I wouldn't be surprised if they had some sonic perks over my IEM's (mostly top-tier) just as the other Audez'e headphones already do.
