I first signed onto the waiting list to upgrade my Mad Dogs. Decided I didn't want to be without headphones for 2+ weeks (I use them at work and absolutely need headphones), so just ordered them outright. Holy crap were they delivered fast. Ordered on Monday. Got them on Wednesday. I was expecting to get them next week going by what the website said. First impressions were wow. Nice packaging. Heavy duty stock cable. Beautiful paint job on the cups. Love the quick disconnects. Only thing I wish was the stand was taller so that the headphones can go on there with the cable plugged in. Really impressed with the sound. They are night and day better than the Mad Dogs. I might just have to upgrade those Mad Dogs to use at home.
