I'll have it by Tuesday and should make for a lazy music listening day. Until now my main can was an HD700 which suits me quite well, but I could see this replacing that without any concern. I had never spent much on closed as I typically felt that the strengths of a closed can could also be achieved with IEMs that also have portability as a bonus. I know it's still in the honeymoon stage, but I'm really looking forward to what the Ori can really do with the new dac/amp. @Pharmaboy Yeah, I had a feeling. I generally don't have a particularly sensitive head so the standard pad isn't too bad, except for days I shave my head. The Ori came with what appears to be a DIY strap of leather for a suspension pad, but I'd need to pick up new screws to even give it a try. I do remember with my old HE-400 before I sold it that at times I could develop a sore spot from long use, so I'll probably have to do either at some point. Honestly, I should just have the pilot pad on principle given how easily it can be used with other headphones. If anything, I can put it on my SennGrado. Oh, and I should be slapped for even trying it, but I'm even smiling with the Ori straight out of a Walnut V2S.
