    Wonder if there has any measurement results of these cans. Haven't ever 100% trust in those test things but they are informative in some aspects.

    Not detailed plots but I posted FR graphs a while ago.

    I was curious, and checked into their site, but they only seem to have the HD660, as far as Sennheiser options go. Sold out perhaps?

    You have to search for HD 820 instead of HD820 on their website. Poor search keyword optimization, not sure how much sales they have lost due to this.

    Probably not too many since they are sold out. One of their brick and mortar stores is 10 minutes from home - I frequently have to tell them about flaws in their web site.

    They do have one of the best collection of headphones in store I’ve seen and the staff is good about letting people demo. I’ve been trying to get them to expand their amp and DAC options - the staff there is knowledgeable in general, but there isn’t anyone there with a deep interest in headphones, so they tend to stick with the brands they already sell for stereo and home theater.

    Are they on display to demo anywhere in London?

    I suspect they will be available to demo at CanJam London.

    They're called World Wide Stereo but they only accept payments from PayPal accounts registered in the United States. Actually, they apparently won't even ship outside the states (address/country is invalid on order attempt).

    Guys, change your name to United States Stereo..

    Interesting timing - that’s the B&M store I mentioned in the MX4 thread. Before condemning them for the name, know that WWS was originally a brick and mortar retailer for several decades with two stores in the Philadelphia suburbs - the name was related to the origins of the products they sold, not their distribution span. The shipping issues are largely due to manufacturers restrictions, not company policy (I only know this because one of my relatives who lives overseas had the same issue). They were one of the first B&Ms who saw the change coming and created a web presence which probably provides the income necessary to keep the original two stores open.

    I’m heading there tomorrow and will ask if there are any accommodations that can be made. I understand the frustration given the name, but I doubt they envisioned the global reach a web site would have when they opened in 1979 as Bob & Ron’s World Wide Stereo.

    I have no financial stake with them, but they have been good to work with over the years.
