How will this one be compared to my own set based on my quality ranking:
  1. Stax 3100 system - (The reference set from a friend of mine)
  2. BossHifi B8 - (Best ever 4Me! (the 'little' Fostex T60rp))
  3. Fostex T50RP - (Bass improved very good modded one)
  4. Superlux HD330 - (Wide open 'Stax' alike sound)
  5. AKG92 - (Good allround headphone just 4 fun)
I'm very curious about the combination of dynamic woofer and electrostatz height. I did rebuild electrostatic speakers myself. Also build a Float headphone, but want some electrostatic quality 'on the road' at work. Will the GL1 beat my BossHifi B8? What's your advice?

I bought the GL2 on MassDrop, which are said to be better than these GL1. Bullshits. This brand is a joke. Build quality and comfort are absent. The audio is not bad though, but far away from excellent or even fun. Scandalous. Run away from this and invest in real gears :) Have a good day,

It *might* beat the Boss, but it will be blown into next week by the STAX. I have a lot of headphones with strengths and weaknesses, but none touch the STAX in what STAX does best- amazing vocals, amazing speed and a complete lack of distortion. There is a "you are there" feeling with the STAX that's just hard to convey unless you've heard them. Now these phones are 1/10th the price STAX entery level now, so it's not a fair comparison. At the current price you are probably getting the phones for what they got them from Verisonix. It seems they are liquidating supply. I feel sorry for M&J as two guys with a start-up, but their marketing seemed like it was created by the Bose marketing team during their off time. Smoky London clubs... geez.
