So what's the story with the Anax mod 3? I've been hearing about it for awhile but haven't really seen a finalized design yet.

I am really enjoying my HD800's, which i've purchased about 2 months ago. I am also really disappointed with the silver finish Sennheiser uses on these cans. It seems like if you stare at it long enough, it will develop scuffs/scratches. I've been babying my pair since i've received it...covering it with a high quality microfiber cloth every night, shampooing my hair every single time before I even use my headphones. And yet, i'm seeing more and more marks on the silver paint over time. All minor and obviously purely cosmetic, but still very annoying for someone with OCD who just dropped over $1,000 on a pair of headphones. I noticed a small paint imperfection on an edge a few weeks back, and it now looks like it's grown bigger (and quite noticeable from a few feet.) Grrr.

 

End rant.

Personally the hd800s have a look that resembles a cheap star wars lightsabre in a plastic package. Nothing in this world is made to hold up, dunno why you would cover it every night? Even the softest Microfiber cloths will put fine scarthes in over time no matter what anyone says. Dry is worse than wet. And as far as I can tell all MF cloths are now coarser than those from 5-6yrs ago. Nothing in this mass produced world is made to last long, its all mediocre finishes that easily get chipped. And I beat those expreme $$$ vintage headphones have a lousy thin clear finish on them, unlike a true piano finish.

There also seems genuine HD800 some which are made in Germany and some that are made in China. 

 

They all have proper identified serial numbers, that you can check with the main Sennheiser HQ and seem legitimately made, not some random knock off. I am quite confused by this. Anybody know about this discrepancy?
