My personal favorite for looks was the pair I used to own before the Utopia’s, the At L3000.

Haven't listened to my Utopia in a couple of weeks (Empy/HD800S getting a lot of time on the head) and wow.

I don't think I could ever sell the Utopia (or HD800S). Lots of fun.

I switchback and forth between my Utopia and HD800s, a few days one a few the other. Since I upgraded my amp they sound almost the same but with more air and space with the HD800, a bit more midrange power and bass with the Utopia. But what used to be an enormous difference is now minuscule. This really demonstrated once again really powerful high quality electronics can grab and dominate different speakers/headphones. Lessor electronics exaggerate differences between good headphones.

I feel like I have five girlfriends ... and I’m cheating on all of them. Worse yet, I don’t even feel guilty ... much.

Which amp?

Woo WA5-LE.. with Takasuki 300B and Sophia 274B tubes. I also removed all the extra electronics I have laying around from my signature line.
