You just know that Arial or Dax, percil etc have their best formula sitting in a vault, they have no financial motive for ever releasing it.
Is it the same with headphones?
I cant believe that it is not possible to model headphones in a similar manner to speakers and come up with the optimil design?
Are headphones priced based on performance in advance of making them or do they build , listen then price them?
Are there conversations like this ?
Exec "Hi Mr Sony Designer"
Brain "Hi, we have finished project X to cost but we have a problem!"
Exec "What problem"
Brain "they're supposed to cost $50 but they sound better than our $400 flagships"
Exec "Oh Great, cant you guys stick to a brief !, you have two choices.."
Exec "charge $450 for them or start again....."
Brain "Cant we just charge $50 for them?"
