If it sounds decent (i.e. anything like a 7506 or 7509), I could get used to the Series 9 Monitor in brown...

Home of the Liquid Carbon, Liquid Crimson, Liquid Glass, Liquid Gold and
Liquid Lightning headphone amplifiers... and the upcoming Liquid Spark!

"Sony engineers and music artists identified the critical 30-40Hz sub-bass region that is signature of today’s music styles and developed an enhanced Beat Response Control design for the new MDR-1 headphones, featuring a closed back for maximum isolation and exceptional bass response. With enlarged air vents at the back of each driver, music lovers experience a quick and rhythmic low frequency response."


and price and release date:


"will be available in November 2012 at Sony Stores, including online at http://store.sony.com, and other authorized retailers nationwide at the following pricing: MDR-1R, about $299, MDR-1RBT, $399 and MDR-1RNC, $499. "




Hmmm... after buying the sub-bass "lacking" (in comparison to their older brothers the Dx000) Denon D600s, these could be on my list (along with the V-MODA M100)...
