All I can say is that these cans are the best cans I've ever heard, except for maybe the HE1000 that I demoed at a trade show. They are so damn thick, rich, and precise! Bass is really present, smooth, and detailed. Vocals aren't as forward as something like a m40x, but are extremely filled out and pleasant to listen to. Soundstage isn't very wide, but the placement is very precise. Gaming in these is really immersive.
They are also very comfortable out of the box. I tend to replace my Audio Technica gear with Brainwavz hybrid or velour just for comfort. But the pleather pads are very nice and I haven't felt the need to experiment. Build quality is beautiful and feels robust. The 3.5mm jack is super convenient. The cable that comes with it is high quality and sleeved. If I had a balanced system I'd spring for the four pole balanced cable.
I hear something in the Schiit Magni range is the lowest power gear you should use, because they're pretty power hungry. Word on the street is that if you try running it off say an iphone or even a Dragon Fly Red, you won't get the full sound signature, even if they are driven to loud volumes. These are not portable headphones.
If you're in the price range and have an amp that can power them, it's a no-brainer.
Update 1/19/2019: Unfortunately I have to take off two stars because the left ear cup’s hinge has developed a persistent creaking any time I move my head or jaw. That’s a pretty serious flaw for a headphone of this price tier, and completely ruins the user experience.
The build quality is spectacular too. They are BEAUTIFUL. That wood is so nice. The headphone is very sturdy and well made. Detachable cable! Yeiii! Awesome! But fostex didn't stop there! fostex did the wiring inside to support balance connections too! Awesome! The cable that comes with the headphone is very good, kinda short if you dont have your amp next to you on your desk but...you can buy any extension you want. The pads are super comfortable. They are of very very good quality. Man this is the best headphone i have ever tried.
-- spend $300 on a pair of headphones
-- not expect to have the world blown
-- shocked picachu face
-- these are actually amazing
-- listen to songs for the longest time
-- not realize the time
-- day gud
For real though I honestly did not expect to be able to say they are worth it for $300. To be fair they are my first pair of planar headphones, but i really didnt expect to see this large of an improvement over my X2HR (which i really still like)
For reference I have a JDS El dac 2 and a gishelli labs archell 2.5.
10/10 would buy again. About the only thing I wish it had more of was bass. Soundstage compaired to x2hr is lacking but you cant expect a semi open to compair to an open like that.

Bought this to complete the 'cable' section of my first balanced setup. Had to drop a star because the price is pretty high but the sound is sublime, a perfect companion to the T60RP's.
The product deserves five stars. My service deserves 0.
