Looks very interesting

new designs are always welcomed

I don't care about the height adjust mechanism trapping hair (haven't got any to trap) but I do care about the price. I just hope it's affordable and not silly money.

Hopefully these headphones won't be subjected to *cable upgrades* which could potentially cost the headphone itself. :p. Now "that's" silly money.

Looks like we have experienced the longest teaser marketing campaign for a headphone launch ever.  Anyone know what happened to the Mo-Fi?

This already sounds more interesting than the speculation around Beats/Apple. Interested to see more.

Blue Microphones is now confirmed as an exhibitor at the next L.A. meet, so maybe we'll all get to check it out then?

:smile:  Thanks!  Head-Fi, definitely Head-Fi.  We might do a show report on the meet, but I would imagine that the meet's impressions thread is going to have information sooner.

yea what did end up happening with these, any news yet?

Of course, DSP can include EQ and bass controls, not just hall effects. DSP is the best way to achieve the exact sound they're looking for - even the best drivers have some minor dips and peak in frequency response, and mainstream headphones are much worse. DSP would cancel out these deviations from neutrality. However that would mean that unless the headphones come with their own DAC with digital input, they would be converting the analogue signal back into digital for DSP processing, and then back to analogue again - which should degrade sound quality to some extent.
 
Switchable open/closed could be very problematic as that would result in two completely different sounds - and at best only one mode would sound good. Again, DSP could potentially remedy this.

Well, neither actually.  :(  They withdrew from the upcoming L.A. meet... again.  If they keep teasing like this, the only thing that'll be blue are my balls.
