^ so a new stronger  magnet composition then?  I guess the headband is bare, at least a spot to DIY your own there. Thanks for the heads up!

That is funny in deed. I bet these will sound even better. If that is not a jab at JVC I have no idea what is. These 2 companies seem to always show up with one better than the other in terms of sound. AT just cant handle seeing anything JVC being a success so they gotta copy even the name. Don't know if I am a fan of the way they look but they should at least do one up on the HA-S500 in terms of sound.

aluminum construction - that's already a big plus for audio technica

EVANGELION × audio-technica
A.T.EVA HQ-3.0

I think a pretty good indicator is the frequency response AT gives the headphones. Most times wider indicates an improvement. I like that the S500 are 8-26,000 besting phones like the ES88's 9-26,000 and even the ES500's 10-25,000. They may just be pretty good. Doubt they can top the pricier ES500 outside of the extension but who knows what the right pad swap could do.

Well, it's only new to me :P Everyone else probably knows about it already.

 

It's just the 9396. It's on snail mail so I won't be getting it soon. I probably should have gotten this one as well.

( Off to go check price ) Is this strictly for the Evangelion model# or are these a repaint of something else?

That form factor again.... looks good to me.  Unless they are  $40 iems with a $100 added paintjob. Open soundstage suitable for repairing mobile combat suits and hearing the enemy approaching maybe.  Funny feeling these will be gone before anyone can try them out.

 

Why not do a Gurren Lagann edition that's so much more insanely through the roof like the show is compared to EVA?

 

Oh yeah I forgot that's the Lethals..:wink_face:

Any further on these AT's let us know please.

I love Audio-Technica's sound usually, but the ES700 let me down in terms of comfort, so I have them up for sale. If AT can build a better S500 that's also more comfortable, I'm all in.

About those new Sony MDR1RMK2 - is it me, or does the sony site really state a frequency response range of 4-80000 Hz? if yes, does this mean they think this is their "best" driver ever?

They will be around $240 and I guess limited edition.

Not much value in a used t-shirt either after that fact, though SF would be all over that. Some soundtrack cds might have been better.

post #14744 of 32858

What, only S/M/L t-shirts? I'm out :tongue:.

Well there seems to be actually music included on the Playbutton.

http://www.aemedia.org/2013/09/audio-technica-x-eva-a-t-eva-hq-3-0.html So yeah, the price is 23,900 yen and apparently Shiro Sagisu has worked on the tuning and that's why he's credited on the iem's housing. I bet these iems will be great for watching anime.
