BALDOOR Medusa - new fashion on-ear headphone from China (soon to be released, it seems)!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi y'all!

 

I stumbled upon this strange looking over-ear heaphones, and got very curious! I never heard about this manufacturer before, but they have other models from what I've found at their website, another over-ear headphone, and IEM and a earbud model too. All of them seem to be fashion/youth oriented and I know nothing about price or market availability. The only thing I know so far is that they seem to be available to the chinese market only, at least currently.

 

But back to the Medusa model, that made me start this thread. They seem like the resut of a love affair between a B&W P3/P5 and a spaceship from a scifi movie! biggrin.gif

They seem to have been just announced recently, so there seems to be no details, specs or market ETA yet! I don't know if they'll sound any good, but they look good to me. It seems that it will be available in several colors and patters, but I like their look in plain black! Be to check the manufacturer website for some closeup pics showing their design...

I think our fellow Head-Fi'ers in China should keep a very close eye over these ones! popcorn.gif

 

 

I'll update this post as more info is available...

And it seems the Medusa model already won a design award:

One, those are on-ear, not over-ear.

 

Two, the way the pads sticks out makes them look retarded. If they were flatter, they'd actually look nice. As they are, they just look weird.

I think they stick out in order to cushion your ears properly.
