Anyone heard these yet? I saw a set at the B&O store in downtown SF. They look cool!

They sure do, but how do they sound? Has anyone have any experience with them? I might just go to the store again and try them out on my MD player.

$100 for B&O headphones ain't shabby.

eh..no, i think the design look very classic and remind me very much of the px200/portapro except it cant fold (or can it).

must be overly priced like their other products.

how do they sound is the question.

edit: ok the left driver/earpads are small, but the right driver/earpads are 3times thicker in comparision. not symmetrical. whats up with that.

I think these sound quite good, but are not a contender for any value, bang for buck award. If you like their style, and you can afford them, I say they are very nice.. They take a bit of a while to break in however, so dont expect your pair to sound like the ones you hear in the store.

They look old because they are old... they are in production since 1980s... like the Portapros... Anyone know what they sound like? with a detailed description.

@ terrymx

I think it's just the angle that you can see it from. If you noticed, it seems asthough the right driver is facing slightly up towards the camera, making it look a lot thicker than the left driver.

I guess its especially hard to notice since the foam is all black

The Form 2 was actually developed in close cooperation with Audio Technica...
