The only thing "Beats" about this headphone is what it does to your head when you wear it.

Duhh haha I'm just kidding. It's just quite flashy

Hey, at least we know the SD1 works. We don't know anything about these yet.

I took a casual look at the thread title and thought "Eh? There's a Muramasa sword in Final Fantasy VIII?? I thought Squall only used Gunblades!" tongue.gif

Nope. I just know that they're of made stainless steel, somewhat heavy, shiny, and extremely expensive.

Anyone think it's interesting that the listed impedance is 16 ohm? That 8mm tweeter is really doing a number on the wiring scheme.

 

Oh, and agree with the HK businessmen, as well as the upcoming MURAMASA IX and X...

 

This is madness!!

No... this is MURAMASA!!!

Ooh man, that's already an SR009 + amp setup.

Seeing this headphone in pure gold or platinum would be quite something, but Final Audio seem to already have decreed they think Stainless Steel has the best sound characteristics, in line with the FI-BA-SS, unless I'm mistaken.

 

I feel like the spirit of this project was - in part - to make a full-size, pure stainless-steel, FI-BA-SS... haha.

For their 1601 and 1602 flagships they use chrome copper as their "top" metal, above stainless steel which is reserved for the mid-tier. If the Muramasa IX is chrome copper... perhaps the X will be a hitherto unused metal for FAD? Perhaps it will be made of mythril.

Mythril? That would be beyond the finances of mortal men.

I remember seeing a pure platinum Kimono in a chemistry book once, I can't seem to find it on the internet?  What is this, I thought the internet had all pictures!~  :<

post #44 of 352

It is rumored that the Muramasa X can only melt when dropped into a certain volcano...

They should have called it the "First Light".
