Thanks for the reviews. U have just singlehandely increased the sales of the TRI I3 today!!! What source are u using for it? I am of the opinion planars are quite power hungry in general, so it would probably need amping to do the sound some justice? Hey u are one of the lucky dudes here that at least your wife is into the same audio hobby. That's a true keeper IMHO haha. At least she can appreciate the gear and maybe she is also a big contributor to getting more gear haha. But I guess if u give one of the sets u ordered to her, it will smooth things over haha. My wife can't appreciate audio gear. For many years, a beats earphone or apple stock bud was the same to her as a TOTL set. Only recently have I managed to drum into her that there is a difference in sound between those and she is coming to appreciate the differences in quality. Like most lay consumers, she seems very happy with wireless gear, though the audiophile in me cringes at the sound quality of wireless gear compared to wired gear.
