The sort of K2 of the headphone world.

I don't think I can quite justify covering all the bases headphone-wise to include the Sennheiser Orpheus, so these two will have to do.

The spacialis(z?)ation problem is not going away afer pretty extensive burn-in so far. Let's hope it disappears during the next couple of weeks. I'm hoping that more extensive wear will perhaps help to 'dampen down' the cellulose baffles with moisture and body oils (let's all puke together) and get rid of some issues.

If not... well, the Q010 may be winging their way back to Japan again for repair. Even just listening to the phones by themselves for a long time, I can't quite agree at this time that the way it sounds is right. The way these phones resolve is something else, but there are what I consider major problems in staging.
