When you get your BHSE, you're done. Obviously you're still looking at DIY T2, GG, Carbon maybe, you're followin mafia's insane experiments, keep some curiosity about new from the headphones world, but if you like 009 or 007 sound through BHSE, you'll have a hard time be impressed by anything else. Different, yes. Better, no.Maybe everyone is just spending all their time listening to heaven and not feeling the need to comment any more!
With the recent TAS Special Headphone Issue giving glowing reviews to the BHSE and Stax combo, I would think that interest in them will be sparked again.
I also found it interesting that several members made an enormous amount of noise leading up to their unit's arrival, and then a year or two later it was on the auction block.
I sure don't plan on ever getting rid of my little gem once it gets here!
I'm still lurking around high end, have more or less extensively listened to top tier stuff (HE-1, Susvara, Abyss, Shangri-La, Utopia, etc...) as well as regular stuff, even from over 10k amps, and there's nothing telling me "it's better, I want to change". BTW, the other cans I like quite much and have a drive to investigate more are HD800 (which I own but with humble amping) and HE-6 (dat bass / tactility )
Looking at resale, depends on each's situation, and there are indeed arnaud and another one who have sold their unit in few time.
Priorities change (family, other hobby), financial situation changes sometimes, some post-coïtal tristesse can occur, but when you have time and desire to listen to music through high-end can, you rarely get rid of this masterpiece
