Let's start with this: Myself and the folks who work here and listen to most every headphone that comes down the pike, feel the HE-1000 is and will be one of the handful of great headphones of all time. This has been corroborated by most every reviewer and headfi denizen around. The only thing we were waiting on was the price and timing. (the prototypes have been getting smashing reviews for 6 months.) So, here it is, one of the finest headphones of all time. You can't get the first one out of my hands.
Delivery begins at the end of May and beginning of June.
