For the price, I think those Ether cans should come with stuffed unicorns.

This made me giggle from their website:
Code:
Frequency Response	Yes*
*The industry has no standards for measuring or publishing results and many published specs wildly overstate the headphone's potential. We prefer not to play the "spec game" for this reason.

Sadly, my joy was short lived.
They are back in the box they came in.
I have already contacted the shop and await a resolution.
If this is DENON quality control then we are completely out of touch with reality as for 1500 EUR, I do not accept this.
Oh my, ruined what would have been an utterly beautiful pair of headphones! Do post back when you've had this badboy replaced, and here I'd thought my AH-D7k looked good....

Has anyone tried the TIN P1? I just bought them and the KZ ZS10 pro. Pretty pleased so far but the P1 sounds like crap out of the box. I had to listen for awhile. These were hooked up to a 789 and need almost as much power as my HE 4xx... I almost busted my eardrums listening to the ZS10 because I forgot to change the gain down to 1.

Apparently this is common but I’m wondering if they burned in, or just grew on me. One thing I’ve noticed is that it really highlights the flaws in your audio source (non hardware related). I played shadow of the tomb raider and thought it sounded like crap and started contemplating returning them... only to then listen to FLACs of Pink Floyd’s Time and dire straits ‘sultans of swing’, which are test tracks for me. I was sold after that.

If anyone has other potential test tracks let me know.

Glad to hear I ain't the only ZS10 Pro user here, got it last week together with a protective case and spare cable for it. Just got my iBasso DC02 today and it worked with my phone straight out of the box. Now, gonna have to 'burn in' the ZS10 Pro and the DC02 (or, maybe listen to them long enough to adjust to their interpretation of sound/music.....anyway, the DC02 gets more than loud enough for my usage.

They don't come with stuffed unicorns, but they're the most lightweight high-end headphones you can buy with that kind of build quality and construction.

You know, aside from great sound quality.
