Pretty odd sale/purchase. Will be interesting to see what they do with Bowers & Wilkins in the future. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-05-03/speaker-maker-bowers-wilkins-sells-out-to-a-tiny-silicon-valley-startup
My wife said she wants me to get something nice for my birthday and a headphone upgrade on the top of my list right now. I want a closed headphone and not sure if I am missing any good options. I would like to buy new or lightly used and don't want to have to search the depths of e-bay for a headphone that may not be serviced by the supplier any more. So far I have the following on the list: Mr. Speakers Ether C Audeze LCD-XC ZMF Omni (Yes its partially open but...
Had a good week with the HD800S, review is linked below for anyone interested. http://www.head-fi.org/products/sennheiser-hd-800-s/reviews/15867

Tubes are going to be here Saturday too! Also the wife is going to be out of town all weekend at a friend's baby shower, lots of listening time to be had.
I have seen some reviews where people prefer the Zdac over the Bifrost Multibit, I think it comes down to preference. And for the price (1/3 less) I doubt the Bifrost provides 3 times the performance. I've had a few sessions listening to the Yggy and wasn't all that impressed given the cost. However, all of those were in meet conditions and not very ideal.
