I will probably regret this very much in the future, but up for sale is the best headphones in my collection. I love its sound but at the same time, dont have an amp that can get the most out of it (even though MCTH did just fine and this is easier to drive than code X according to many here) and also, I feel that even HD800 is too heavy these days. I have not heard the code X but Bill P did and told me that they are very similar, except for code X sounding a bit more airy. Headphones is still in very good shape: some light scratches on the headband and the sliders. Comes with a XLR cable with some light fraying towards the end. Asking $1350 which is what I paid + PP fees + actual shipping cost from Vietnam (should be $30 for most places in the world). I had to wait 6 months on my pair so grab one now to save you the time.
