Excellent article outlining these formidable headphones. I’m a Levinson proponent and they’ve always stood for amazing quality and great sound and these phones seem to be almost perfect. The focal Bathys and B&O, at the wireless high end are some of its competitors. The $1k price is debatable and $800 would be been a better MSRP in line with others. Would be interested to hear them wired to a good DAC to AB them. BT while limiting, is improved almost annually. Lower end products like Sony XM5, Bose QC45, etc., can sound pretty darn good too with their apps. Wish there was a dealer near me so I could hear the 5909’s.
