    I heard it at the hifi show earlier. The amp was ha5050, and it was nice. Not that I don't want to talk about it, it's just the room wasn't noisy but it wasn't quiet enough and I don't have too much audio technica experience. I only have an ad900 and a w1000x. One thing, I asked the at staff and they said the impedance is 460 ohm. Yes, not a typo, 460. Anyone sure?

    It is basically more refine R70x which also had high impedance.
    I love the HA5050, it is a great product through and through but way out of my budget.

    First thing I noticed. This might be the first AT headphone I can wear comfortably in some time.

    Awesome, though I'm not sure anything stands out as being 2 K to me yet. Headband looks like a less comfortable rip from the Qualia 010, ear pads once again look thin and the cups themselves seem quite shallow. Suitcase is pointless. Looks like an upgraded r70x, though for 8 to 9 x the price I was really hoping for some marked improvements in the build. Wonder if sound will be worth it too. AT's higher end has been meh in my personal experience/ opinion.
