Really hoping these will be a decent upgrade from the dt880's, whose cable cutting out has forced me to retire them. May even write a review ;)

In a word yes, although I've EQ'd the 95X which I hadn't tried on the 880 or other any headphone for that matter.

so you find it much more better than dt 880 and do you face any problem in their durability ? hissing humming driver failure something like that ?

At the start there is sometimes a noise like tissue paper being wiped over the driver, this is the unit burning in and after ~100 hours I have not had any problems. There is also a whining noise that I get when I leave the energiser turned on overnight. Turning off the energiser at night seems to eliminate this noise.

It has no noise. Burn in is common for headphones (Focal Elex) but especially so in these huge electrostatic drivers in the 95X. I recommend you get the 95X. And you have a lifetime warranty, you can replace the unit any time.

I replaced this unit, because I was not turning the energizer off at night, the unit was 100% functional but I thought it was defective. Drop immediately sent a replacement and paid for return shipping for the 1st unit. No charge.

that's sounds fantastic did you tried the 4xx ? do you find the 95x as a very big improvement over the 4xx ?
