A couple odd things with these headphones, in addition to being a bit heavy. They have a great open sound, but I'm looking for something 'smoother' and non-harsh so I might try something else.
I recently bought a pair of Koss ESP/950 electrostatic headphones and they sound exceptionally nice to me. They seem to be very dynamic and detailed, yet smooth and musically pleasing. You might want to check them out. I bought mine through Amazon for $681.57 total and they sound like a thousand dollars to me.
Those look interesting. Is the 'Electrostatic Energizer' unit just to drive the electrostatics, or does it also act as a headphone amp?

I believe it also acts as a headphone amplifier and is an integral part of the whole. You can't use the headphones without it and the audio signal goes through it. I'm told you can substitute a Stax headphone energizer by using an adapter plug. I've also been told the Stax energizer sounds better, but I'm completely happy with the sound quality of the Koss energizer.
