These are the type of headphones that tend to be bought by those crazy enough (read: me!) to actually buy the aforementioned headphones too, or by those who already own them. I really hope there isn't someone out there who is going to save up and spend all the money they have just to get these. I have found that ultra-high-end headphones really are about getting a certain sound -- one that many people may not even prefer over affordable headphones.
Well I have spent $1500 twice and a grand a few times over the years and with all of those purchases I have cringed and at times even lost sleep but I do enjoy them all in the end and have sold none of them. I can't imagine spending over $2000. in any event although for a dac i have and would consider it again eventually because it boost the performance of all the headphones and my mid-fi speaker system. I understand the costs and R&D but I am not in the position to even think about either one I'm afraid.
