No, because I am sending the unit out to the guys on my web site for the review.  I was in the beta testing group so I don't think I should also review it.  The video will show what comes in the retail box, a close-up look at the PM-1 and how it looks when worn.

Not if the headphones are different from the beta units that are already in the hands of the beta testers. If the sound, fit, finish, etc are different, and he did not have the opportunity to really listen to them prior to forwarding them to his reviewer, then the comments he will have will not be accurate for the PM-1 that everyone else will eventually be listening to.

HiFiGuy and I were in the Beta test group. Oppo is sending us final retail versions. I'm waiting for the NDA to be lifted to comment.

Non-disclosure agreements have thwarted my endeavors yet again...

Time waits for no man, even the creator of the original video. So far, loving it. Also love the HA-1 "plug" in the background.

Very interesting sneak-peek at the drivers when Mike took the earpad off. It looks almost like a dynamic driver enclosure on top of the planar magnetic tranducer; are the tracing patterns concentric circles (similar to old ortho designs) instead of serpentine (what T50RP / hifiman / audeze / abyss use)?

As was I.  I also am waiting on the NDA lift before I comment further.  I received mine yesterday.
