Got a used pair of the black version at 450 USD. Very good sound, but the black paint is fading and these are uncomfortable. They weigh less than LCD-2, but feels heavier. It's weird that even LCD-2 are much more comfortable, comparing with Vali. However, I'd love to keep these - every aspect matches my impression of Russia. Now I have a collection of headphones from 12 countries. Cheers!

Anyone interested in buying mine as I have used for less than 15 mins since I got it. No time for music as I am too busy at work.

I am trying to figure out if I should jump into this I have a pair of Audeze EL-8's and Sennheiser HD 6XX Headphones and wonder if these are going to be worth having also.

I really like the way these look. But I'm concerned that so few people are buying in. Is the price point close to something a lot better? I've heard lots of good reviews so I don't understand.

Thanks for more information. Headphonics has a good review too and they are pretty accurate from what I’ve been able to listen to.

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

I own a pair of the Fostex Purple Heart Th-X00 and Grado Head-Fi HF2. Would I notice a significant difference in quality for upgrading to these or would I need to go to a higher tier of headphone to make it worth the upgrade? I feel like it wouldn't be significant enough to be worth it, but I'd love to hear anyone's opinion who has heard the Kennerton and either of the other cans I have. Trying to get an idea of what a significant upgrade is at this point.
Alternately, has anyone compared the Vali and the Elex? Anything better under $1K?

The Elex has a smoother frequency response, so it gets my vote hands down. The HE-560/Sundara and DT-1990 Pro are also better options. Since you like Grados, you might also like HD700s, and HD800s (plural, not HD800S) can be found used for under $1k as well.
