    Jude, what source were you using in this WES > SR-009 rig?

    HD650s? I thought LCD-2s were expensive. Do I want a car, or possibly the best headphones ever created...

    I don't much like dark headphones. This seems like everything I could ask for in a headphone.
     
    Too bad about that price tag!

    WOOOW this is crazy considering the price. Some people give out even more for speakers...
     
    I think my ears will never be treated with something like this X/

    That's certainly the last word in affordability, eh?
    I wonder whether I'm willing to eat only ramen for the next 3 years...

    When you follow the video to watch it on youtube, you see 1 user doesn't like the video. 5$ as that was Jude disliking his own video.

    I wonder if I'll have enough money for this when I'm 60 years old...Goal: set.

    any comments comparing the detail of these to the detail of the JH3A prototype at canjam? cause i felt those were some of the most detailed headphones id ever heard, and i think many would agree

    I would LOVE to hear the SR-009 myself. I found the SR-007 slightly too dark for my likings, if SR-009 is brighter and better, I am sure to rob a bank or something... :p
