I like them a lot. Incredibly well made. Great sound. Huge head room.
Support is also very good. This is the case for a lot of small manufacturers these days but Avedis really is a top guy.

There are a few respectable people on here that say the MA5's are exactly like 10xx heads and I don't agree with that at all, but they do have very similar characteristics. I actually prefer the MA5s for my production work (the word hi-fi might be taken wrong, but MA5s gives me that impression in comparison to 10xx), so you'll just have to try them yourself.

My opinion of the MA5s vs X73 is pretty much the opposite to DONNX (and I do think it's off topic, seeing as we're talking about 500 series), though the X73(i)'s are very good value considering the added EQ.
