Those look amazing. Geez. Wish i had gotten in on this drop. Hope they bring these and the 789 back.

They sound fantastic! Definitely the best headphones I own. I've been burning them in on my X7s since last week and they're really settling in nicely, especially the presence and separation within the low end. I wouldn't say they're "open" so much as "airy". You won't confuse these with an open-back planar, that's for sure - but the stage and imaging and range are stellar. I've been using them as-is, but maybe in another week or two (after break-in) I'll start experimenting with the tuning felts and toob amps. Personally and based on the music I listen to, I'd like to elevate the lows and bring down the highs a bit.

They're gorgeous and the CF/wire headband combo makes them super-light. Amazingly so - when I picked up the shipping box from my doorstep, I didn't think there were headphones in it. Everything is either metal, leather or CF - save for the ear pads, headband adjusters and internals. Ditto on the 789. I thought it had been added to the 'always available' MD catalog like the Liquid Carbon and CTH variants. I guess I was wrong - now I'm kicking myself for passing up on the opportunities I had to pick one up. I'm hopeful that if the demand is there, MD will continue to produce/sell them - unless an upgraded version is released. **fingers crossed**

Every time I listen to them they keep sounding better and better. I'm probably around 20 hours on them. The bass has been improving as I expected. I can listen to rock music with them now and enjoy it. I listen to a lot of acoustic music (guitar, piano, jazz) and they are stellar for that! Isolation is very good which I was hoping for. My ears are sensitive to bright highs and the CX's don't bother me at all. Over all I'm very happy with them and glad I bought them.

I’m bathing in jelly rt now. With they were on my doorstep lol. Glad to hear the highs are not annoying. I used to be all about the highs... now I’m much more drawn to that of a warm signature. Congrats on a great pair of cans!

That's great to hear. I'm sensitive to highs. I can't justify buying this drop right now but I will continue to read more posts on it.
