The tube amp is made out of Carrara marble base from Italy w/ protective glass cover. It also has a cool feature where it opens up when you get the headphones.

It's velour/microfibre construction is soft and allergen-free as well. It has a frequency response of 8 - 100KHz w/ incredibly low distortion of 0.01% at 1 kHz and 100 dB SPL.

Quick Sound Impressions

This headphone is very analytical (technical), detailed, balanced, and well layered in soundSoundstage is MASSIVE and definitely the widest I've ever HEARD yet. But, what made it special is the experience. The open sound coming out of it is truly life-like and full of emotions!

Everything else is quite hard to explain, but, this is the best sounding headphones I've ever tried yet. Simply unreal and life changing in general.

Listening to it is like a gift and a curse. Why? Every other headphones will sound bad after listening to the 
Sennheiser HE 1.
