didn't the beryllium help to achieve this sound sig? Focal are using new tech compared to the other TOTL headphones right? and its nothing like its falling behind or feel similar to HE1000 and LCD4
yeh i agree it might be overpriced a bit, but it gave us the option to have what some of us here see it as the current best headphone.
some people want the best options sometimes :P i am one of them at least XD
