Headphones look gorgeous indeed. As I can see from the photos, the cables is detachable, can you comment on the plugs it uses? Are these mono minijacks?

Those are mono minijacks. Going to be hard to find a mono one small enough to fit in there. Viablue T6s might fit..

Beautiful snaps.  You have a great eye for the proper angles to use in your photos.  *high five*  You can always send them my way for initial impressions, hehe!  Been trying to get them for the magazine I write for, but they've been a bit unresponsive.

They look really similar to some of the new portable headphones on the market.

post #396 of 2000

Anyone know what headphone stand that is in the pictures Jude took?

If the Oppo's sound as good as they look then we are in for a real treat.

Yeah I retract my early statements about these being less than $700, these look like they are heading towards $1.5k or possibly even $1.7k, it screams luxury, these won't be your average mid-tier consumer headphone it even has a serialised stamp on the side of the gimble holder. These look very alike to the Ultrasone LE8 with the LE10 pads (oval).

 

I have a gut feeling these won't be flat/neutral sounding, more of a fun planar with some emphasis on the low-end or upper mids. Possibly airy sounding as well given the pad design.

I want to try out a circular version of those pads.

LE10 pads? Except they cost a fortune to buy.

What say you to the similarities outlined in that post: http://www.head-fi.org/t/685704/oppo-pm-1-a-new-planar-magnetic-headphone/15#post_9886213?

 

Surely, you don't make a $1500 pair of luxury headphones whose design is essentially copied off someone else's $300 phones? (Also, remember the Meze headphones.)

Personally I'd rather a nice "high-end sounding" and capable planar to fill the $150-250 gap as no such modern thing exists (T50RP is not the answer). After-all people pay the extra premium for looks, hype and bragging rights and the brand name.

Ultrasone Limited Edition 10. Comfortable pads, shame the headphone itself sucks for the asking money.
