Anyone know if these things are actually limited? I have a hard time believing that they actually only made 500 of these. They're still in stock in most online stores, even after all these months. They don't have individual SN's as far as I can tell.
Doubt it. Just got mine today and there is no serialization plaque made out of glass like their website mentions. My best guess, they made more and lowered the price.

Yea good point. I didn't get one either. I guess they made an initial 500 batch which included that and labeled it as the limited edition. And these are reruns that don't have it. I'd be pretty upset if I bought at msrp tbh.

Considering going from a Beyerdynamic DT880 SE 600 ohm to these, any comparisons? More than anything I can't stand sibilance and would like clean deep bass without muddying the rest of the response up too much. Mainly watch anime and listen to electronic/game/chiptune music.
The 880 is on a lower level. It is still great, but these are much much better.
The 880 are not sibilant but their highs are extremely powerfull.

So yeah no nameplate so my guess is they are running more of them. Which seems to contradict what I originally read. But makes way more sense that it's a bigger run...doesn't make sense to manufacture less than x thousand. Meanwhile they sound great. Find it interesting that the 560 is noted here as having less shrill treble as that was the biggest critique of them...other than build quality. Just shows how subjective all this is.

What Amp is recommended for this, primary use is to listen to flacs.

Mine are going back. I started noticing a metal popping noise on the right earcup when putting on or removing the headphones. Took me a second to realize what was happening but one of the clips that holds the retaining ring to the outside of the right earcup is apparently broken and the metal grate is popping in and out a few mm when pressure is applied to it. I also noticed from further inspection that the plastic parts were already getting noticeable microscratches from extremely careful handling. Seems a bit shoddy for $350, so not keeping these.
