I would recommend the Teak Cups, the Bamboo are a bit mid-range light in my opinion. It is more of a V shape with the bamboo, and there is more sub-bass/bleed.

I have the 177x GO's. Are these worth the purchase? I love the sound signature of my GO's, but I've heard widespread praise for these.

If u are happy with what u have I wouldn’t bother, it’s an endless cycle of despair trying to find perfection.

Will I be able to return this product if I don't find them comfortable? I've got big ears and the smaller pads on this concern me.

So close, but I will never again buy another pair of headphones with permanently attached cables. They break and are a big hassle and/or expensive to replace, usually meaning the headphone is out of commission for a long time (while being shipped for repairs, being repaired, etc) . Had it been a pair with removable/swappable cables, it would have been an instant buy for me.

Usually I agree, but they are honestly worth the sound. Also E-mu has been easy and fast to deal with even though everything ships directly from Singapore. Also the cable is pretty durable, as I had an old Denon d5000 which had a slightly worse cable and it lasted 8 years before breaking.

Think I’ll have to pass on these. Only because of the attached cable. I would have hit the buy button otherwise. Why would you limit your sales like that? Really I don’t get this decision at all. A 1.5 meter cable doesn’t work for me, a 2.5mm termination is not my ideal choice and certainly breaking a 2.5mm termination and having a useless headphone makes this a no-go. All remedied by a replaceable cable !! Whyyyyyyy !!??

Takes about 1-4 days, I ordered the older style earpads from them and that's how long it took. After that response was quick and they ship with FedEx from Singapore that took only like 3-5 days to get here to California.

I used to own these (when they had removable cables) and still regret selling them. If they come back with removable cables I may buy a new set. But, built in cables are, to me, a no-no for headphones that cost more than $100... I am not a cable roller, but I believe cable reliability is not high enough to risk an expensive headphone purchase on. I don’t know anything about these cables, and they may outlast the heat death of the universe for all I know, but I avoid this kind of set up on first principles. But, if these still sound as good as they previously did, and if you don’t mind the permanent cable, then these might just be for you! Oh, one other note... If I remember correctly, the earpad openings are a bit small, so if you have trouble with smaller openings, keep that in mind. However, as I recall, the clamping force is somewhat weak, so it might not be too uncomfortable even if the pad openings aren’t quite large enough for you.

Well I can tell you that my old 2012 Denon d5000 cable lasted about 9 years of heavy abuse, and it's not as well made for durability as the one on the teaks. If you're not constantly wrapping the cable around something and then unwrapping everyday, then it'll last a very long time. Plus E-mu is good with customer service for any potential cable repairs.

Anyone ever done a comparison of the various cup types available? Trying to decide if it's worth ordering a couple different ones at some point

There's some audio forums that have done it and taken measurements, but to sum it up everyone just kinda decided the teak cups sound best. Unless you just happen to really prefer the signature changes the other wood types create. Even then, almost everyone kept the teak cups around as the reference.
