I think this could be it:

 

 

 

I've always wanted to get one of their phones for the living room or bedroom.

Those B&O things look nice and comfy.

Other qualms I thus far have with them, I wish the cable wasn't so unruly and the neck cinch would hold a little better. Sonics wise, I'm really liking these things. MuppetFace I'm surprised you haven't bought a pair for yourself yet.

 

1000


Speaking of the 4A's, I'm listening to them as I type this unamped through my iPhone 5 and although my handset can easily drive my CIEM's to deafening levels they don't sound anything near to the quality sound I have heard through my CLAS rig/Leckerton amp/Studio V DAP. Looks like I'm a mobile amp junkie for life

 

I think she mentioned getting a pair for herself earlier on in the thread :).

You guys want to discuss drummers? Ahem, have a listen to a certain type of drumming style we northern folk up in Canuckville call northern hyperblast.

 

LIGHT ER UP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pretty well proves my point about drummers....

 

Mahler Symphony 5 4th movement Adagietto

I just met up with a bunch of lovely folk and we are thinking of starting a university headphone / audio society. Exciting! :3

You must have missed my earlier post about ordering a pair with pink shells. : P

Good ol' Magma.

 

I'm also rather partial to their Japanese prog-punk derivative, Ruins. Yoshida Tatsuya was greatly influenced by Magma, and while I'm not so sure his language is linguistically viable, I do enjoy his passionately sung falsetto gibberish. He's also one of the current greatest drummers in the world IMO.

"Available Spring 2013, PANDORA Series.
PANDORA X : Metal Housing, 50mm DU+BA, Closed type
PANDORA VI : ABS housing, 50mm DU+BA, Closed type
PANDORA V : ABS housing, 50mm DU+BA, Open type
PANDORA IV : ABS housing, 50mm DU, Closed type
PANDORA III : ABS housing, 50mm DU, Open type
"

 

Wow. Considering their attempt to release ONE full-sized headphone was a disaster, I hope they can manage five. Interesting that they seem to be incorporating balanced armatures into them? I've had some rather interesting discussions w/ various individuals about the prospect of using BAs in full-sized headphones. It would definitely present difficulties FAD would have to overcome. If they succeed however, this would be the first full-sized headphone to use BAs unless I'm mistaken?

 

Interesting that all but one model is using plastic. Wonder what the pricing scheme will be? Originally it was said to be $800 - $1500 for the three models.

 

Either way, I wouldn't get my hopes up too much yet. FAD tends to announce an excess of products than what actually ends up on the market, especially when it comes to those catalogs SpringBiscuit is citing. I remember saying the same thing in that thread regarding the Heaven II when some folks where convinced it would be coming out last year based on those catalogs.

 

Given the past delays w/ the Pandora line and given that there have been no other announcements about these five models, I have my doubts "Spring 2013" is accurate.

Me thinks he doth protest too much. He's probably a closet drummer.

The not particularly subtle display of her ears, and how they're larger than the usual ears on anime characters, for some reason makes me think of the women in Murakami's novels who inevitably have some singular flawless bit of anatomy over which the nameless protagonist will obsess.

I will have to check out ruins. I had the chance to see Magma in concert in Paris...hypnotic experience. As I have been told by a fan though, there is some kind of borderline racist ideology behind the whole celt language thing...anyways...one of the top 3 drummers I ve seen live.
