Mini meetup with MattTCG here in ATL to swap gear around and try out all the combinations. Spent quite some time listening to the AD and it has completely sold me on them. They sound awesome and the fit and finish is also impeccable. I was blown away by the quality of the paint job, you really have to see them to believe them, and of course hear them too ;) Looking forward to ordering them once Mr Speaker clears his backlog.
If I had only one additional desire on them I would say to replace the headband with something lighter and padded but part of that had to do with the leather strap being not quite taut enough to avoid contacting the plastic above it and causing some pressure on the top of my head. Earpads are out of this world soft and luxurious. Wire connections and the wire are also top shelf however I might prefer a lighter thinner wire using more of a portable ready 1/8" connector instead of 1/4" and a single entry option using the same connector would also be very nice for a more portable light weight easy on/off setup. Of course I would need my portable amp to drive them but they sounded great using it (XM6) as well as my HeadRoom Ultra Desktop Amp and my WA7.
All around a great set of headphones. Job well done Mr Speaker!
