MIGHT be able to get my friend to ship them to you guys from Japan. unfortunately, the only store he could find that has them doesn't sell them too cheaply (either that or audiocubes' price is really not bad at all). but say, for a price of US$260 INCLUSIVE of EMS shipping, who would be interested?

I MIGHT be interested but I have to decide which I really want. The A900 is tempting at the price if it truly is comparable to the A100Ti. Plus, if I'm going to spend that much it may be worthwhile to wait and see how much the W1000 will be because if it may be a much better headphone. Hmmmmm, decisions...

tough choice


i opted to take the "safe" path. bangraman's the only guy who actually heard the two, and he's not actually compared the two thoroughly, but even then, he's implied the A100Tis are a "lil" better. whereas, the A100Tis have pretty much raving reviews from all who've owned them..so I decided on the shimmery blues instead..to be safe

Tempting......

I've kinda got the A1000 bug now as well Kin3tix, I'm really curious to hear how the A900, A1000 and W1000 compare. I don't want to rush into anything so I think I'll have to pass on this one.

I thought I was one of the lucky ones who got one of the last remaining 100ti's at Audio Cubes. The order went through and they charged my card - but alas, It was credited back today.

I am definately interested in getting a pair from your friend. My email address is kevinm33@earthlink.net.

I take it payment would have to be money order - or does your friend have a paypal account? If so I'd definitely be interested (and just possibly maybe if it has to be by money order
).

PM or email me (adamp88@mac.com)

Can your friend get the W100? Cheapest I've seen them in the US is $345 which seems a bit much to me.
