Thank you for this heads up on Aqusta. I was watching them on ebay & amazon since they emerged, but 300 was too hi for me to jump.
Watched T o M site last 4 days and they came up today for 125 + 15 SH, totals $140 today & jumped on them. Site says they ship quickly from SanFran, CA or maybe other warehouses.
They 1st caught my attention as reminiscent of vintage classic Sennheiser HD-1000 Charleston model, #1000 made for Senn anniversary; others here said same.
It's possible Fischer Audio of Russia may be making these Telefunken (per ToM site add), and they make some great sounding, very well built finely crafted headphones.
The Aqusta are quite striking looking too, as others said here. Was not at the meet to hear them, but reading this thread is fun.
Thanks again for the heads up !
I think you will like the Aqusta. They need lots of burn in though. Bass is nonexistent out the box especially. After so many hours, the bass just blooms. Also, they can take a tremendous amount of bass boost without distortion. They scale well too.
