I will give you my impressions. However, I cannot give you an accurate comparison to the sr-009. Only the HD800s, LCD3s and he-6.

 

I should also mention that one of the people from the A2A (reputable reseller that I bought it from) told me that roughly 50% of people who listen to the Abyss state that it is the best headphones they have ever heard, using a setup with a high end cavalli amp.

That's the defense and fair enough, the listening experience is what counts (I've not heard them, mind you). The measurements do tell something else, though, and in this case I get the impression that JPS ultimately got lucky that they managed to wrestle the driver into a configuration that performs, even though the measurements would suggest that it's anything but under control.

 

Still, I think the Abyss are interesting in terms of bringing in competition, and there seems to be potential for later versions as well.

And some that didn't make the list like the $300 Mad Dogs!

I would respectfully request that the Maddog be added if and when possible. IMO it's one of the best values in the game.

an even bigger bargain than HE-500 for people who really don't want to spend alot of money. they offer high end sound at entry level price.

I'm looking to get some new cans and it's eerie that the A+ best valued cans are the ones that I've been hoping to try out before buying (HE-400/500, HD600, DT880 600ohm). Thanks for making me want to spend more money to replace head gear L3000.gif

Some moons back - say 2008 - I drew a line in the sand. I would NOT spend north of $2k on headphones. Period. That's speaker territory for my wallet, a clearly defined one without blur or confusion.

 

And then...

 

...like many, my lifestyle changed. No longer having my own place. Or living largely by myself - suddenly having to consider others nearby in the way of roommates. In fact, this is the origin of WooAudio pretty much and how they came into being as a business. Many living in NYC close to each other, on top of each other and speakers for many were no longer an option. WA understood this and emerged to satisfy this reality.

 

Fast forward to 2013 and I cannot for the life of me find that line once firmly drawn. I did look for it rolleyes.gifrecently and closely - there's simply no sign or trace of its existence. I just sold my beloved D7000 and for the very first time I'm considering scratching or surpassing the line I once drew. And without balking. frown.gif evil_smiley.gif

 

A fav song of mine is "You Can't Lose What You Never Had" - by The Muddy Waters Tribute Band. I enjoyed listening to the HE-6 for a few months, the HD800 and while they did bring me some things I had been missing, I was content settling back in with my D7000 and not worried about what I didn't have. Rather, enjoying my music library with what I did have in the D7000.

 

Only because my listening pleasure must remain private for now, and I want to replace my cans with something of quality, we're headed north! wink.gif Well, potentially...
