Pretty odd sale/purchase. Will be interesting to see what they do with Bowers & Wilkins in the future.
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.

Having more time with the Lyr and Zdac...

However, all of those were in meet conditions and not very ideal.
