Bottom Line:   
Well built and attractive headphone - muscular sound, good dynamics, excellent bass and midrange. Soundstaging is very good - both wide and deep. Instrument placement is also excellent - no wandering instruments with these headphones. The only minor criticism I can make is twofold:

1) weight (although they are quite comfortable to be honest)

2) slightly grainy, forward treble, lacks some delicacy.

Review made using the phono stage of an aging Audiolab 8000C with the stock cables that ship with the Audeze unit.

Highly recommended headphones for the serious listener - in every department other than treble delicacy they beat my 23 year old pair of Sennheiser HD540 gold reference headphones.
