These headphones won't get you the ladies like the posts above claim but paired with the correct amplifier (they like tube amps) these babies make pure music. Yes, they are expensive, but they are the best at what they do: immerse you in music with a spacious sound that is very true to life. For alternatives look to the Stax Omega II electrostatic earspeaker system. For complete reviews and recommended amplifiers for the R10 search [...]

I recently had the chance to listen to these amazing headphones, and I was absolutely blown away. The soundstage and bass reproduction were like nothing else I have ever heard. I also listened to the $5000 sennheiser Orpheus that same day, and far preferred the R10. They are totally different headphones, but as far as cost-no-object sound reproduction goes I can't imagine where you could find better.

If any product bests another product that costs $1000 more, that is a bargain. These are definitely an expensive bargain.

You see, these are magic headphones. When placed over your ears, they will instantly whisk you away to Happyland, where the streets are paved with gold, money falls from the sky, and sugar-plum fairies grant your every wish.
These mystical headphones also enable you to run faster than a speeding bullet, and leap tall buildings in a single bound.
All this for just under $4,000. What are you waiting for !!!!!

It has been said that this is probably the best dynamic headphone ever made. But is it worth it at its price? Unless you have a lot of money to spend, and must have the absolute best of something, no it is not. There are headphones which come within 99% of its potential at nearly ten times less its cost. If you need that last 1%, then go for it. Otherwise, there are plenty of headphones out there that will blow your head off with the sort of quality that would take tens of thousands of dollars to replicate in a typical speaker configuration. Conversely, at its price point, you could start seriously looking at some very fine electrostatic headphones which, while not to everyone's taste, are universally considered to have superior resolution and emersiveness to dynamic headphones (and typically come with their own amplifiers, which the R-10s do not). I give it five stars out of respect, not as a recommendation.

I recently had a chance to compare these head-to-head against some of the best dynamic headphones available (from Sennheiser and Grado). To my ears these sounded *substantially* better. The detail and realism was really wonderful. Of course they cost nearly times as much as most other audiophile headphones, but if you want to spend that kind of money on a pair of headphones, these would be the ones.
