The HM901 is pretty sick! Have a pre-prod unit I've been playing with. Tasty with the HE-400's and the RE-400's

Can you explain on being sick?

I'm guessing the "top-secret" gear mentioned at the end of the video is their next flagship headphone.

$999 and still customers have to suffer the indignation of forking out more cash in order to properly drive multi-BA CIEMs. This is exactly the same situation as with the 801. Shameful.

 

I've watched the 901, with great interest, for over a year, hoping that Fang wouldn't screw customers into paying extra just in order to use the 901 with multi-BA CIEMs (this is, after all, supposed to be a high-end portable player, for use with high-end portable ear monitors, is it not?). Sometimes I despair.

Man, I really like the design of the HM901. MUST GET ONE! I find Fang a really interesting guy, maybe its just because his English isn't that good, but I think he's really honest about his advertisements of the products.

I wouldn't object if Fang offered several amp modules, with a customer having to choose their ideal module, at point of purchase, inclusive in the purchase price. I'd take no issue with that. But to claim it's $999 and then immediately force customers to pay more just in order to have it properly do something it should ALREADY, for $999, be capable of doing, is downright outrageous.

Jude: Why did you discontinue all of your current in-ears?

Fang: Well, because I'm crazy!

 

Favourite bit :p
