    Please knock me off the loaner here, @ChaChaRealSmooth

    I've heard these now. Really nice sounding cans. I don't have an adequate headphone amp right now to do proper testing at home, so my review would let them down.

    I'm heading out of the country for the rest of this month next weekend. Can the order of the cue be re-arranged so I get these in January? If not, no worries.

    @mscott58 You can bypass me for now, circle back at the end of the tour and see if I want to try it. I think @zach915m is still planning on sending me one to test? But I'd have to re-read my emails with him.

    Got it. So if you're hitting pause and @Stuff Jones did as well I guess that means @Clemmaster is up?

    @Clemmaster please PM me and we'll get the VCs out to you.

    Looks like these won't come until the 16th. I'm out of town that day and will only get my hands on them the 17th.

    I'm leaving on the 18th for 10 days and I don't feel like carrying such expensive headphones with me... Is it cool if I ship these to @ChaChaRealSmooth on the 18th and get back on the loaner after I return (provided I like them enough to care for them)?

    If you like them enough on first impression, feel free to keep them around safe in your house while you're gone and come back to them. I think @Hands still needs to sort out what's exactly happening on his end, and @Stuff Jones is out of country until January.

    What about you? Aren't you next after me?
    I'm happy to hold on to them if timing doesn't work for anybody else during the holidays.

    I actually already had them lol. My name was more or less a placeholder in an event like this (bad timing for some).

    @Clemmaster @ChaChaRealSmooth Any chance at all that I could loaner them for ~6-7 days while you are gone Clem? If not no worries. Or even if it's possible but too hard timing-wise no worries.

    Also Clem not sure how far you are from Chacha but if I get in on loaner and you are close I may be able to drive over and pick up directly to reduce risk of loss given how crazy shipping normally is this time of year, etc. Or if you want to drop off with Chacha and I can pick up at his place.

    If @Clemmaster is okay with that I'll be fine with that arrangement.

    I work in Burbank, live in West LA.

    I can’t got anywhere before I head out of town (no time) but I sure can ship them to you on Wednesday and you can ship them back to me when I return ?

    Let me think about it a little - that is a little far for me (I'm south of Irvine) if I drive up/down during the day.

    Try to avoid shipping as I've had multiple issues in the past shipping right before/after Christmas and I wouldn't want $$$ headphones to get lost or damaged. Also a lot higher risk of shipping damage for anything approximately ZMF case size and bigger (fine details explained extensively to me by FedEx acct manager in past, UPS will most likely be similar) during this time as well.
