Since I didnt find any information here about this announcement from Beyerdynamic in Japan (11th may 2013), I started this thread. The link has a lot of pictures so it is easy to understand, but just in case I did some translations also
-It says that the Custom one pro is a big hit. Released last august, it sold a total amount of 12,000 units, with 8,300 only in 2013. So to give more momentum to the headphone they are going release soon the white version as well, with same driver and price.
-They also announced the headset cable, which has a mic attached, and expect to sell for less then 10,000 JPY
-The new Custom One Pro Japan Special edition is expected to be released in September this year.Apparently only cosmetic changes, with a design focused on the Japanese market
- They also gonna release the CUSTOM ONE TESLA, which will come with the new tesla driver generation, announced for the first time in this event. The driver is 30% lighter, while maintaining the same output quality. Also the Custom one tesla will adopt a crowd sourcing format, to start in this year`s fall. If it receives good public acceptance, it will be released in 2014 spring (Personal note: well, I guess here in head fi acceptance wont be a problem)
-They also announced the CUSTOM ONE STUDIO, a COP with studio use in mind. It has an impedance of 250Ω, head pads with buttons instead of velcro, (apparently the ear pad is also different), a curl cable of 3 meters and a plate with a different design. To be released in the end of 2013
-The T50p successor, the T51p was also announced. New drivers and new pads, to improve long listening sessions comfort. Also a version with an in-cable remote control will be added. Housing is very similar, with some little differences.
- The new headphone amp A20 will be released this fall. The price will be similar to the T70 and T90 (in Japan around 40.000-50.000 JPY). It can power headphones of 600Ω such as the house flagship T1. There are two jacks of 6.35mm
