    Oh heck! Now why'd you have to go and do that? I want one of those Eikons in the worst way...

    I keep telling myself that I have enough closed headphones. That ltd. cocobolo eikon...the temptation is almost too much.

    Waiting on a cocobolo Atticus! I can't describe how excited I am. This is going to be my first pair of real closed backs, I am ditching the HD800 and HD650M for them. I am keeping the HD600 though. Pairing both with a heavily modded Crack.

    Zach, on the website it says that that the new woods are limited to a run of 40 units at one point and 25 at another, so a little unclear. Just a heads up

    Jimmy McGill (aka Saul Goodman) approves of the Cocobolo's!!!

    I might have to get an Atticus in that wood. Collect them all!

    Just got my order in for the Cocobolo Atticus. It will be sad to see my Cherry Atticus go :triportsad:

    I have been saving for an Atticus for quite some time....this Cocobolo Atticus have arrived at perfect timing...I like the new sliders also.

    thats it, gonna buy myself a christmas present, the atticus. I never ever thought id spend such a money for a headphone, but listening music is my favourite thing to do, and im ready to exit mid-fi hell :D

    Been really tinkering between atticus, aeon open, new audeze LCD:s, the new hifiman which name i've already forgot.

    90% of the time i listen to rock/melodic metal, what i want is real authority, slam in the bass, guitars with body. From what i've read, atticus suits really well for rock/metal, im gonna pair it with my lyr 2 & modi 2U. Gonna upgrade the dac sometime in the future, probably to the bimby.

    Really good choice. The Atticus will serve you well. You'll like it out of your lyr 2.

    I just decided to go nuts and get the Cocobolo Eikon, Camphor Atticus, and Blackwood Auteur. The former two have become some of my all-time favorite headphones so I figured I might as well get them in my favorite woods and just sell my old ones. If anyone's interested in a Padauk Eikon or Cherry Attius, let me know (I'll officially put them up for sale once my new ones get here). Can't wait to hear the Auteur. Even though I know it's "just" an open Eikon with new pads, the preliminary measurements I've seen hint at something like a mix of an HD800's frequency response (minus 6k spike) with ZMF's musicality. I may be in headphone nirvana if that's true.

    WOW big purchase haha. Those cocobolo are gorgeousss. I hear the Hifiman Hex v2 were a more musical HD800. How to the Aeons stack against the zmf btw?

    Have the Aeon open coming in today so I can compare that with my EIkon

    I'd be particularly interested in that comparison... I have a Cherry Eikon, and the AFO is one of the one's I've been looking closely at....

    Thanks!!

    Waiting for that comparison!
