I have a feeling we'll be seeing a Head-Fi TV episode concerning these monsters pretty soon.

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but this Chinese (presumably HK) website has some very detailed pictures of the Muramasa:

What a stand... it might ship with the headphone.

I sure hope so considering the price. I would expect an amazing box/carrying case as well.

That thing is going to (and, by the looks of it, the prototype already has) smudge like heck.

Well the cups are brush finished stainless steel, won't be as bad as a black iPhone.

The price I seen is marked HKD59800 (about USD7700).....but it should be around HKD49800(about USD6400)., I think.

Where did you get both numbers?

post #177 of 349

 HKD49800(about USD6400) is mark in a local magazine, HKD59800 is the marked price tag seem in DMA RPO(the shop).

FWIW, I just think it's too early to say what the price will be, since I've heard things between $6000-$8000 quoted from several difference sources.

Looks cold.

Something inside me says this will be more a glitter item than a $6000,$8000  much like many high 5-6 digit speaker systems.  Usually is the case when a headphone seems to care more about special appearance than what its made of.  I mean many top dollar headphones look great but visual style was not the first thing to talk about.
