post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 

Didn't get any hits doing a search so I assume they are new?

 

 

 

 

  • Acoustic Design: Dynamic closed-back
  • Driver: 40mm diameter neodymium
  • Sensitivity : 98dB SPL (1mW) at 1 KHz
  • Frequency response: 20Hz ~ 20kHz
  • Input Power: 200mW (Max.)
  • Rated Impedance: 68 ohm @ 1KHz
  • Ear pad: Leatherette
  • Head Band Pressure: 4.5 N Approx.
  • Connector: Nonmagnetic rhodium-plated stereo α (Alpha) mini-XLR socket

An interesting point for me is the mini-XLR socket (I hope 4pin?). I'm about to modify all my headphones to have these

The earpads shape looks weird to me

It looks like its using the same material as on ATH-M50 for the build quality to me. Look cool! Looking forward for reviews smily_headphones1.gif

Unfortunately the picture is very smoothed out in photoshop. So I can't tell if its going to be the good plastic or the bad plastic (like my AKG's)

 

I just wanna see that connector (not that i think it will sound better) but knowing Furutech - it will look damn cool. I hope its the 4-pin

 

And even though the earpad is weird - it conforms to your ear shape.

I will be getting these to review when they come out, next month I think. They are supposed to have a balanced smooth natural sound, and are very comfy apparently.

 

Msrp: $299

Sounds good, hoping more engaging then boring - natural is a difficult sound to do, often its code for accurate and a little boring. 

 

I like smooth. They are closed back, lets see how the soundstage fairs.

I think they mean natural in a warm engaging musical way rather than accurate and boring.

 

They changed them since can jam as people claimed they were too clinical, so now they should be warm/smooth/natural, as well as super comfortable

Uh oh.... encroaching onto my Denons territory. - The D2000 would be a good comparison me thinks. Although I'm expecting the Denon to be brighter and more bassy.

Consumer pricing? Beats. etc

If* their headphones come with the same build quality as their connectors, $299 doesn't seem unreasonable to me. 

 

*that's a big if
