I joined as well!

Can anyone weigh in on how well a fiio a5 would drive these?
Not sure about these but I had a pair of Alpha Dogs and a E-12 and it would get very loud a lot more than I needed and the A-5 is the same power but with the noise floor as the E-12a meant for iem's. So my guess is yes. I just might have to join this drop.

I've thought many times about backing out of this drop, but I just can't. For some indefinable reason these seem too cool not to own.

Evil marketing claims another victim.

Thanks for sharing your experience, it's encouraging and hopefully I can wait a little longer before investing in a more expensive amp.

Did you join the drop in time?

After I posted that I thought to myself just do it so I did. I believe there were 11 left when I did.

I kept hemming and hawing over it until the 1,900 units were extinguished. :dt880smile:

In truth, though, I just have spent too much in the last few months on headphones -- just recently picked up the HD 650 (which I really, really like!), I already have the T50RP MK3 (which I also really like!) and had to pick up the Blue Lola's two days ago because they were on clearance at Best Buy.... so I figured, if I ended up really, really, wanted the T-X0, I'd pick up a used pair (they will inevitably show up on Head-Fi for sale) even at a slightly higher price in November or December.

I was trying to tell myself the same thing because I recently purchased an ATH-R70x and a B&O H6, but I went ahead and ordered one anyway. Oh well, I will just have to find a place for it now...

Same here this will be my third headphone in as many weeks even though this are still a ways out. I got a pair of Vintage AKG K240 Sextetts and if you have the power to run them are just great for Rock.

Joined after 1893 units were sold. My favorite headphones I've ever owned were my rastapants modded t50rp back in the day. I haven't been too into the headphone thing since then, but after waffling till the last minute I realized I couldn't pass these up. Cue the Tom Petty...
