        Looking into it a bit (there was extensive talk about this when the Utopia released) it looks like fears are misplaced and the amount of beryllium required to cause harm is more than the tiny amount you would find on a headphone driver. That is IF the driver would suddenly turn to dust and you'd inhale it or you fancied a snack and decided to eat the driver in the first place.

      Had a bender during rehab to complete my shift toward IEMs. Traded out a full sized for an IEM. Had to spend a few hundred. I apologize.

        Also, Acoustune IEMs have a very smooth and pleasant sound. Easily among my favorite IEMs along with the Andromeda. Definitely worth an audition if you ever get the chance!

      Got to try out the Vega, Andromeda, and Xelento via loaners. Ended up deciding I didn't need any of them. Andro easily the best that bunch.

      Looking forward to trying Andro and Vega next week. Supposed to be done with audio purchases but cant resist the chance to try them via loan

      Time to start saving for a big move in a few years. Don't think I'll be making any more audio related purchases until after that.

      It’s been about 6 years, but I am making my return to the AD2000. Looking forward to revisiting an old favorite.

        Went this route due to my (surprising) HD800 comfort issues. Gap is much smaller than I make it out to be since I had the AD2000X from late 2012 - mid 2017. Purchased when it was released as an upgrade to the AD2000 though it wasn't really an improvement. Either way large portion of that time AD2000X was the golden years where I stopped thinking about trying new gear so often. I've just about reached that point again

        Very much so! But it definitely took some time to adjust to the treble on the ADX5k.

      The top of my head is made of jello. Even finding the HD800 too uncomfortable to wear these days. Oh well. Saves me money.

        Ha yup, me too. Just sold a HD800 for the same reason. If the clamp were just a bit firmer it would help alleviate all the weight going to the thin headband pad, or maybe it's just me. No problem wearing heavy Audeze cans with a suspension strap for hours.

        Ah. that's another interesting point that could be a factor. The HD800 has basically zero clamp for me. From now on I do plan on sticking with only full suspension along with A-T wing system and ADX5000 style.

        I found the MrSpeakers AFC very very comfortable though not the most enjoyable sound. They are a bit heavier, but I am definitely interested in Audeze and HiFiMAN offerings.

        Now that I have the Elex where I want it I may be letting go of my LCD-2 rev2 pre-fazor. Shoot me a message if you're interested. I like it a good deal better than either the LCD-X or LCD-2 fazor

      First eye appointment in 3-4 years, and things went better than expected. Very happy about that. Was a bit worried about one of my eyes.

        It's going on 6 years for me, I'm definitely nervous about what I'll find out. At least my ears still seem to work (or at least my brain is convinced so)

      All audiophile issues resolved for now. After trying Atticus + AFC I realized that I should just use my IEMs at home when I need iso.

        Instead I'll probably just pick up a HD800S again to complement my ADX5000 and HD650 whenever I get around to it. No rush. Always loved that headphone for certain things like gaming, movies, and certain styles of music.

        Beat Saber does look amazing. I've resisted the temptation because I don't really care to buy a VR headset right now. Maybe when the next generation of headsets are released I'll be more on board!

      After I find the right closed headphone to round out my setup I plan to take a long long break from looking at new audio gear.

        True, but I've renewed my focus on comfort so my options are quite limited. This is actually why I settled on the AD2000 years ago and the ADX5000 now. More comfortable to me while still sounding quite nice.

        The longer I spend in this hobby the more I'm willing to compromise on sound quality in favor of comfort. Your brain can adjust to some serious weirdness with time; your cranium on the other hand will only get worse
