I'm anxiously awaiting these also. I hope they have a good amount of ear space.
Oh I'm sure they will. The old ones have really big cups, the only issue with them is depth. Width and height arent an issue though.
well, they aren't THAT shallow. just enough the top of my ears touched it.
And the reason, well. They are $35 headphones, do you really expect them to put the deepest plushiest pads on them?
It's been released already, It's just not being sold in the US yet but Audiohipster said he's going to get it any week now. Price will be no more then $50 USD
The SHL9705A/28 are indeed near the leaders in comfort. My ears are at a higher angle to my head than they are but I find that if I simply reverse them they become adjustable in that regard and can fit perfectly. I do wish there was a more breathable surface than the paper thin perforated faux leather, though. A thin added layer of open cell foam will probably fix that.
For sound they have negligible non-linear distortion and a very flat response (relative to an ideal speaker at 1m measured at the eardrum) up to 1 kHz but need some wiggly equalization between 0 and 12dB to get flat above that. The net sound is a bit lackluster above 7kHz.
If you can't find the Monoprice 8320 look for the 9927 instead. Better devices, not much more cost. Unbelievable bargain. I can't find a more accurate device at any price and I've got a pretty darn good and pretty deep cabinet for R&D purposes. Nearly perfectly flat up to 6 kHz with a pretty well behaved 12 dB roll off from there to 20kHz. Couldn't be easier to flatten them.
