That is one of the Five prototypes that Victor has designed, he still isn't satisfied and is working out the details with the folks in Taiwan. But yes, at the plan is, all frames will be titanium.

 

Sounds like things are progressing nicely. Only a couple months to launch, have to keep working.

A Noble bike? nice!!!!  I wonder if there are holders for the DAP / Amp / Headphones, and charge them when we cycle.

Thanks, I almost got a heart attack at the customs coz they seized the package but was very cool while I spoke with the customs official and got away with 20 bucks, so not that bad even though they shouldn't have seized the package in the first place but it's always a PITA to try to explain to them that they are wrong.

Things are pretty laid back in Australia for most parts. I think I can recall one package being opened by customs before arriving,  (had something sharp inside) though never had something seized, I bet you had a heart attack, $20 is ok. In Oz we don't get hit with customs anything under $1000 AUD.

Customs got me for $45.

Well, not really a heart attack but if they decided not to believe my explanations and citations of the law they could have charged me about $300 but thankfully my charm and good looks mostly did the job :D - maybe being a lawyer might have helped a bit too :rolleyes:. Not that I wasn't ready to pay to get the sweet N6W but it's like throwing money away coz technically manufacturer's samples declared to cost under $30 are free from custom taxes. Anyway, it ended well.

 

edit: And the guy at the first counter was like "what do you mean by "a sample unit"? how come you don't have a paypal copy? what do you mean by "you haven't paid for these"? so some manufacturer is sending you free stuff - are you best pals or something?" and I was literally thinking of saying to him "yeah, I'm his personal triceps trainer".

He interrogated me quite some time but luckily at the counter that I had to submit my documents for the customs' release there was a young girl who started with "San Diego? Why are so many people getting these cheap Chinese headphones" and I relaxed :o

Enjoy! You're home and hosed, crack open a special beverage to celebrate the new arrival.

Myself will make a coffee. ;)

Thanks! And just got around to actually put them in my ears - awesome stuff. Drums sound insane. It's apparent that the N4 was supposed to be the reference model with better clarity and more neutral sound but damn the bass is probably the best I've heard ever - tight, deep and extremely controlled.

If you like it on the 4, wait until you hear it on the K10. :-)

I like it a lot on the N4 but I actually probably didn't word it properly. I meant that while the N4 is clearly the clearer and more neutral model my new N6W has an awesome bass.
