I was thinking the same thing!
They do look rather cool O:
Hope they're not TOO expensive!
Haha, that is one way to save money!
We'll just have to wait for the FR graphs. Far too many times there have been raving reviews right out of the gate only to be disavowed after the graphs show up obvious problems. On the other hand, one would think that the headphone manufacturers would be "competing" for a "new" sound, rather than just keeping up with the jonses and treading water. I'd really like to see the high-frequency spike problems looked after. Sennheiser had licked the problem with the HD600 then lost the plot.
Oooo, perrrrty, excited to give these a shot - they look very comfortable and durable.
For those that didn't watch the video - here's the frequency curve they showed. From what the presenter seemed to say, they're probably going to be very close to the 940 sound signature.
Open back DT1350?!
Parall3l, I've edited my original post to say "this past spring," as it may have otherwise indicated I meant spring last year. It was spring of this year.
But, yes, they did a good job keeping it quiet.
It will likely "leak" some sound out and won't isolate you from outside sounds as much as the 440/840/940, yes.
By the way, doesn't this leave the door open for the flagship SRH1940 still?
Just going by the numbers...
70 000¥ ie. 670 euros / $900 for the SRH1840 and
40 000¥ ie. 380 euros / $515 for the SRH1440

Beyer and a Sennheiser had a forbidden affair/love child
Also, the case it comes with looks awesome.
