Just watched Tyll's review on Emu Walnut comparing with original CAL. It sounds like it is not much upgrade in terms of sound but mainly cosmetic changes with wooden cup. I would be keen if it has detachable cable with MIC option so it becomes more usable for portable on the go....
I've mentioned in other comments, but the main noticeable difference is the wood cups sound more solid, while the plastic cups sound hollow and a bit thin. The plastic also tends to have a bit of a resonance that makes a slight sort of "ringing sound" with the vibration of certain notes, while the wood cups don't. Simply because the plastic is thin and hard, so it vibrates more. Personally I wouldn't use these for a portable option, the headband is quite fragile and can't really take much abuse, if they fell on concrete off your head, I'm just about positive they would break.
