  and their construction and comfort suck (extremely),

The two Audeze phones I've had have been built like tanks.

I really hope they're lighter than the he6!

I was not talking about durability (well, I don't like wood - not a very convenient material IMHO)... I was primarily talking about internal contruction (related to openness and resonances), mod-ability, pad-mounting mechanism, weight distribution (included headband design and its implementation on the headphone) and these things. Audeze headphones are flawed in all these aspects in my opinion.

Will this cause a flood of for sale HE-6s?

Good point. Might want to get ahead of the for sales... I've already given up on an f1j until I find out if these babies can eat speaker power!

  Tried them out today at the show and they're definitely lighter and more comfortable than the HE-500/HE-6. The weight/comfort was on par with the HE560.

That's it. I'm in. Any word on how well (or badly, hopefully) they're driven? Will I need to sell my speaker amp as well? :p

I tried these a few weeks ago as well, though under NDA until today.  They're really pretty decent through his EF1000.  A good successor to the HE-6, though lighter.  Fang puts a lot of design into these.

How do they compare to the HE6?

Alright, if anyone tried them personally, could you please comment on their tonality? This is something that one can evaluate roughly even in meet/conference conditions... Are they more similar to HE-6 or HE-500?
