We should have the wood series of this model too. I know Magister is already up for vote, but there's more to be had with this cans with other types of wood.

I just committed myself to this. Would be nice if shipping could be cheaper :)

All the reviews I see of these either seem like plants or super fanboys. Are there any reviews from legit places?

May not be the most legit, but I wrote a personal, subjective, review of my pair. http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=52240.0#post_pt3
It compares my experience with the headset run through multiple source components including the Aune T1 and ODAC/O2 combo from JDS labs.
At the time of the review I was using streaming 320kbps audio as my baseline digital format. Please excuse my writing :)

Thanks Binge for the review. I think I will skip this one but I really appreciate the honest impressions.

I've been interested in a pair of these for a while now, but I'd also like to see some comparisons between the Ti and older versions. The NVX or jaycar clones are less than half the cost.
edit: Here is a good comparison http://techn4all.com/headphones-fischer-audio-fa-003-ti-update-top-model/

I have the original version, and the Ti is supposed to improve everything just a bit more. These are the best closed analogue of the HD600 I've ever heard (I had long experience with that headphone). Despite having a very open, balanced sound they isolate quite well and are easy to drive; they're my primary work headphone. I like them enough to get another pair in this drop.
Final note: they come with not one, but TWO sets of earpads (pleather + fabric) as shown in the final picture. These pads fit on the HE-500, and IMO are a large improvement on that headphone's pads. My spare set are on my HE-500s, and HE-500 pad alternatives can cost enough that this set of cans is effectively close to a hundred bucks at the lowest drop for an HE-500 owner looking to experiment.

Good point about HE-500 owners - too bad I no longer have mine to capitalize.
Have you found any good comparison reviews on the "Ti" vs. original from anybody other than the manufacturer? As nice as it is to see these on here / bring them down close to the price level of the original Fishers, the lowest drop + shipping still makes them double the current cost of the NVX original clone. So the obvious question is whether the velour pads and user-tested driver differences make these 2 times better than a pleather-only original clone?
As an aside, something I've never seen confirmation on - are the velour pads that come with the original Fishers also angled?

Are the Ti velours angled? I can confirm the originals are not.
If the Ti ones are, I may have to steal those for my HE-500...
As for comparison reviews, they exist but are buried deep in multi-hundred-page Head-Fi threads.

Are these the same as the Jaycar Pro Monitor Headphones or the Brainwavz HM5 or the NVX Audio XPT100 Studio?

Yes, but a newer revision than those, these are the Ti version of the Fischer 003. The other clone headphones such as the HM5 and NVX are based on the original version.
