The Philips L1 is $299 - supposedly they're out now.

Got it. I'll put it all down in the next update.

Just a little issue:

 

"Thousand Sun TS842"

 

Shouldn't it be Thousand Sound?

Can't see Starkey's top model on the list. Starkey SA-43 Custom IEMs. MSRP: $ 1050

Oops. That will be fixed over the weekend if I can find some time for another update.

Oh, regarding Sony - the MDR-Z1000 is listed as $499, not $735, and the new XBA-NC85D is also listed as $499 (it's an ANC 4-driver BA universal fit IEM). The SA5000 was $699, but is no longer listed on the Sony America website (it's still on the Sony JP website, for something like 77,000 yen; I think it's the most expensive product on the Sony JP website as a headphone - other candidates for that honor include the PFR-V1, MDR-7520 (Z1000 Pro), and EX1000 IEMs). Not sure what they actually intend to be "top of the line" overall or if they even intend for human minds to be able to follow their reasoning. 

 

You might also include the Zalman ZM-RS6F or FM, it's $59.99 list and around $40 street; no idea if you're including "surround" sets though. 

 

Yes I'm really bored.

Hmm, I don't see the A03 listed yet. Are you still verifying retail prices? But yes, the drag coefficient thing is interesting. I thought it was pure marketing, but they actually told me when I sat down with them that they were designed specifically to minimize wind noise.

 

BTW, what is this:

多摩電子工業 (Tamadenco) ING Sound Labo S1210HR

I still haven't had time to update the list quite yet, so all of the last page or so will be included. I'll likely update tomorrow.

 

Tamadenco is a Japanese IEM brand that's not very well-known. You can find their site here, but it's in Japanese.

Ah... they sure use a lot of OEM shells! Well, unless they're the OEM themselves...

Added Zalman, Starkey, and RedGiant, and updated the Sony and Philips listings.

post #177 of 259

Forgot to mention the Cardas EM5813... there's a Model 1 & 2, forgot about the price, but I think it's $425 and $325

Added Aurisonics to the list.

Actually, I think Aurisonics' TOTL monitor is the AS-1, whose 'b' variant, with ambient and bass ports, is an extra $200 over the base $399, so the listing should perhaps be an AS-1b at $599...

Thanks. I'd only briefly looked at the brand, and so I probably missed it. I'll put it in the next update.
