I saw that the price of the Aurvana’s went up, and it’s a bummer! I might write something about it. I suspect it’s because of all the excitement over the Emu Purplehearts over on Massdrop, which are the same headphone but made with wood. They sold that for about $75, and I wager that the Aurvana price on Amazon went up to try and match that. I might wait for it to go back down before I take the plunge. I don’t really want to pay the same price for the plastic-backed version that the wooden Massdrop version went for. Thanks for your input that they sound great though, I’ve heard nothing but good things! Thanks also for reading!
