This pair of planar headphones have amazing clarity, but I never got around to using them because I also got a set of B&Ws that have been my life since then. Bought from another audiogoner and used maybe ten hours across a week and then left in the box. Box does have a couple small light scuffs and a couple pin tip sized dents on lid but you have to really look to see them. Headphones and cables are in excellent condition. Rated 8/10 for age.
