AKG K3003 High End 3 Way System Headphone - Page 2

post #16 of 1800

999€ for a 3-driver universal IEM.... Remind me, what's the best IEM  thatAKG currently offers...? I think I'd sooner buy the (bogus) Sleek Audio CT20...

Apparently its 2BA and 1Dynamic bass driver?

:\ so instead of making K1000 they make a 'mega-iem' (anything silver and shiny is by default mega?) they can flog to mass market (well, more so than HP that you need to drive with a speaker amp). k... really looks like a SBA or 1dyn to me.

They sure love their hybrid designs.  Hope this is more coherent than the K340 which was very nice other than that.  I read something about personal tuning so some sort of chip will be getting in the way rather than out of it.

Come on, it has "refined cable materials".  I can only imagine how refined the cable must be.  And the materials.  Wowzers.

Input impedance: 8 Ohm...LOL this will sound pretty loud! (ok, we dont know yet the sensivity, but if it has more than 100dB/mW, then it will play LOUD and hiss as hell)

So are these endorsed by Mr. Jones? I refuse to pay $1500 for an untested universal IEM unless Quincy signs off on (and gets a cut from) them.

No, they are obviously the wrong color.  Not to say it couldn't happen, so that is something to hope for.

Just saw this on the Facebook page of the premier audio store in my city:

 

AKG K3003 - 01

 

The K3003 has been spotted in the wild!

 

I'll try to see if they'll let me get a listen...

This must be what AKG was teasing us with last year. There were hints of a new high-end product and everyone suspected it was anupdated K-1000.

Argh.

They don't look like they'll stay in your ears...
