so let me get it straight, $1k retail? or is it $200... I'd like to believe it's $200.

Why would the pricing be lower than their previous flagship?

All I can say is that I want it. They had me at true subwoofer. Lol.

It doesn't seem that far off from what you're used to, and it's on sale for only $50 on Amazon right now.

 

I have my XBA3 as an daily beater ATM...... and I dont think I need another IEM........

Not to mention with the SE964 or whatever coming out, my SE535 is probs worth 10 dollars biggrin.gif I dont hate my SE535, though it complements my XBA3 well. but it just wasnt worth 470 dollars in hindsight.

$1k preorder price tongue_smile.gif retail is $1.3k irrc.

Is it retail, or is it the "MRSP retail" that no one really follows?

 

"True Subwoofer" - thereby making all the subwoofers just not as trustworthy.

I tend to think that if any company bangs on about bass, they will deliver bass. XBA-4 for example. I have huge love for dark but competent IEMs...

it's the "MSRP retail". I'm guessing it will stay at 1k when everything settles down. Only earphone solutions has them listed and they have a lot of discounts as well.

 

EDIT: I am persnally surprised that they focused on the "true subwoofer". I felt it was the treble that was lacking in the 535.

Sounds about right. $1,300 is likely the MSRP, while street value is closer to 1K. It's a nice lookin IEM fo sho, but I'll wait for those impressions to roll in to separate reality from the PR spiel

A lot of roll-off, yes -

 

Rin's graph shows pretty much the same thing.

I was always of the opinion that the dynamics and leading edge transients were dulled down a little with these.

so that they can sell like hot-cakes and disrupt the current marketing? <- good plan.

More along the lines of the K3003/TG334 pricing....not to mention form.

 

One can only undercut so far until it becomes nigh unprofitable.

I think it's safe to say that the new IEM is a statement more than an actual innovation with the "True Subwoofer". They deliberately chose the clear shell and deliberately laser-etched/engraved their logo and driver number on each armature. They probably could have just kept a solid shell ala 535, got rid of the driver markings and not mention things about "others taking 2 years to catch up technologically" and just called it the 635 but they know they can obviously squeeze it for more.

Not Shure-related but...http://www.head-fi.org/t/663188/the-astell-kern-ak120

 

So what does this one do?
