I wouldn't say "soon," but something like that.

Calling it Muramasa Ⅷ, writing "Headphones" and the "align left" layout here, made it look like an Ⅸ or Ⅹ were in design from the very start, imv.

Has anyone heard of these headphones? They can be compared with the sound of MDR-R10 heavy bass, Orpheus, LCD-3?

AFAIK, they're not for sale anymore and no more will be produced. Only a few stores and a very small group of extremely dedicated collectors were able to get their hands on it.

 

If you want a listen, Jaben Singapore has them available for audition, along with their Orpheus.

Yes, utilizing a bit less Unicorn horn.

I just had the pleasure of listening to a pair of final audio headphones in plastic housing and was totally blown away by the sound quality.  Using two drivers in each cup with no cross overs.  I was impressed with what I heard from the fostex th900 and the lcd-3 but the final audio headphones were my favorite.

Yes, too much backlash from those mythical animal rights groups...

I have, yes. I just can't talk about it much by request of Final Audio.

 

Bass heavy? No. Quite the opposite.

The 3 models that are coming out early next year will be much less than that and much more affordable.  I've been told that the top model should cost $1250usd.

Hopefully I'll get to try them in Tokyo in two weeks.

They sound so different, I'd say it's really a matter of personal preference. The R10, HE90, and LCD-3 are what I'd describe as very lush and full-bodied sounding headphones. The FAD is more analytical.

Since the earphones have a model with a serial number
(Piano Forte X ·
Piano Forte IX ·
Piano Forte VIII ·
Piano Forte II ·
Adagio V ·
Adagio III ·
Adagio II ·)
I conclude that in the future full-size headphones will also have the range of 2 to 10.
Am I wrong in their conclusions?
