    Is that pattern milled out of the wood or a different material added in after?

    The pattern looks like a metal screen So the wood is doughnut with an insert.

    Beryllium drivers should sound pretty good.

    I have been breaking them in since Sunday morning. I am trying to give them 200 hours of break in. They sounded great right out of the box. They are very fast with transients and bass is good and crisp or well defined. These have a Berylium coated driver so they have Utopia like characteristics.

    Did you just imply an expected qualitative outcome common to a specific design/driver material/topology? Its like I don't even know you any more.

    Most Excellent. Very fast transients. Deep articulate bass and a midrange to die for. So good I ordered a ZMF Eikon which is their best closed version. Sold my Mr Speakers Ether C and Ether Flow in 2 days on HeadFi. I am keeping Sennheiser HD 800S, 650 and 600 as well as MassDrop Fostex X00.

    Yes, on my system. On my Stratus system the Flow in particular was too slow and Juicy .
    I have not been listening to them for months. The Ether C was pretty decent, but he got thrown out with the wash water.
    Stratus system is not very tube sounding and is very Dynamic.
    I need one good closed headphone for my computer system and the Eikon is IT I hope.
