    Gotta go dig my w3000anv out and start listening to them.... been listening to the ESW9 and W11JPN a lot lately.
    Always end up dozing off when I use the W3000anv.... its just soo relaxing and smoov.

    Some say also about baby lotion like Mixa bébé (or baby) to keep the pads soft and clean...?

    Made a deal on these, second hand from another Headfi'er. On the pickup, I only have my LG V30 as a okay source to test with (got a JDS Labs EL amp at home). Is there anything in particular that I should check? It seems all fine, but just in case, are there any ways to confirm its authenticity, so that it is a legit W3000ANV, and maybe also places where the first wear-and-tear might show? Or known/possible issues/defects? Just looking for some tips on how to audit them properly.
    Looking forward to check these next week! :O

    I just did a Google search of w3000anv photos. When I scroll down the photos I saw one of the original box it comes in. It's a dark green box that has a bright red slide on cover that has a gold decal on it. Can't remember exactly where but there will be a number less than 2000 on the headphones themselves. They will be very dark brown but if you shine a flashlight on the ear cups you'll see more of the depth and other colors coming through. More reddish- Brown if I remember right. I would study all the photos thoroughly and try to compare to what you see in person. Just curious what kind of price are you offering? I see crazy prices on eBay upwards of 3,000 but I doubt very much they're getting that. If it doesn't include all of the original packaging I think the price should be way lower. And if it doesn't have the original cable and plug I would pass on it all together. Unless you just want it for sound quality and don't care about collectability. Good luck

    Need some posts before I can try to sell my w3000ANV. I have been using them with Burson conductor amp from 2015 and have been extremely happy with both of them. These headphones definitely have a lot of character and are a joy to listen to. Now moving to US from Finland and looking to sell all my hifi gear before moving. A lot of work but there is no way I could bring everything with me:)
