I've got both these and the Cascades. And an Elex on the way. I'm impressed with both, and will be using the Cascades for my office work (the closed cans are worth it in this scenario). I have some more expensive open cans that I'm using right now, but hope to give the Vali a more worthwhile listen in the future. Thus far, I have enjoyed my time with the cans and would recommend it (if spending this ludicrous amount of money on headphones is a consideration for you). The build is quite solid, the wood cup detail is impressive. The gimbles are clunky, but functional and will likely last forever. The headband is thin, but quite nice during long listening sessions.
Like I mentioned before, I can't comment too much on the actual sound quality comparisons--my ears have been tainted by so much change in gear and source recently. I will say that I am looking at purchasing the upcoming *THROR* from Kennerton whenever they finalize it
