So much has been said about these headphones, it's unlikely I'll be able to tell you anything new - but in summary:
* Extraordinary soundstage
* Super clarity and resolution
* Fixes treble peak and adds actual bass vs. the original HD800
* Very musical relative to the HD800, and in a way more musical than the utopia (as the S is marginally less analytical)
* Lightweight and a delightful way of having long, enjoyable listening sessions focussing on every single bit of detail of your favourite tracks
Was bought new for $2500 in June 2016 from an Australian retailer... i am the first owner, and have treated it with utmost care.
I thought I'd never sell them, but now the reality of having plonked down big $$$ for the utopia has finally hit me. And I just can't afford to have this much cash tied up in high end headphones.
Comes with: headphones (MINT), both SE and XLR cables, USB, cables pouch, travel/storage box, outer cardboard box too. Basically everything pictured other than the headphone stand.
