Do these things have TWO dynamic drivers in each earphone?

Very interested in this model.

I don't recall pricing mentioned before but it looks like Fujiya just announced a price of ¥40,000 (USD$392) for local Japan.

Does anyone own the Kuro yet? How is it compared to SUI and KAEDE ?

It sounds darker, almost macabre.

I know where to order. I got my Sui from price Japan last year. I just wondered, how did you come up with your impressions.

Sui from E-earphone in Akihabara (even 2nd hand ones) & Fujiya Avic in Nakano.

Kaede's sold out everywhere.

Never been to Ocharaku's Tea Shop but -maybe- he might have some Kaede's there?

I looked at the name "Kuro" =black and assumed it's darker sounding.

So have you ever heard it or do you own it? Or your comment was an assumption based on its name?

No I haven't heard it yet, yes it was a whimsical comment based on it's name.

 

In seriousness, the Kuro uses Magnesium-Copper alloy and Liquid Crystal Polymer to improve it's sound quality; or should I say more accurately... it's transparency - which I believe we can equate to a state of blackness, since transparency is ultimately a transitory state, defined in quality by it's deviation from colours.

I received the Kuro this morning from Price Japan. Let me just say that the last 15 hours have been the most fun I've had with headphones in over ten years.
