I have 2 of the org Vali and just LOVE them. When listening to them (especially since the 2 came out), I keep thinking, how could it sound any better. While listening, I try to imagine what I would change in the sound. I can't come up with much. But..he he, I don't think it's gonna keep me from getting a 2. Edit to Add: I have no problems with microphonics. One of my org Vali I can't hardly even get it to ring. And reason or not, it sounds slightly better.
