Smallist flat box from the good old US of A. Value of contents $99, must be MS1s.....no whats this on the box?



Yes looks like another "Black Monday" HF1.



I still cant believe I was one of the 3 orders that got through as I was posting from Ireland!

Well I feel privileged to have got these and a big thanks to Todd for honoring the order. I do feel guilty as I know how may of us tried last Monday and I wish everyone good luck on Saturday.

PS: Unlike my MS1s I did not have to pay any customs duty, this day just gets better and better.


As a side note the headphones below are what I had prior to Head-Fi (just a few months ago) the bottom pic is my current collection.

I keep promising my wife that I will put 1 or 2 on ebay, but its like "Sophie's choice" even the ones I could live without seem like part of the family.

Had to be pure luck. I had the order set up about 1/2 an hour before hand, when 12 MST came I just hit submit and I ended up at Paypal.

I see a Corda Aria next to the box. The headphone collection is looking good!

And you only have one head and a pair of ears, my goodness, how many headphones does one person need?

There seems to be many black headphones, no woodies?

Postman should have dropped them off at my place. Congrats on the HF-1s. I would love to get my hands on those cans someday.

Yeow! Careless Postman!

Not only did he deliver to the wrong house, but the wrong country as well!!

Not just one set; but many sets of cans.

Very impressive indeed!.......I are envious!!
