I really like the look of the storage can. Just ordered one from Charles at the Headfoneshop in Toronto for my Legend X.

Just congrats whoever designed those faceplates for the new kids. They look really nice!
in their full res glory:

Wraith:

Valkyrie:

The Valkyrie is sick as hell—what even is that? It's like soap bubbles made solid.

Any own either Valkyrie or Wraith yet?
or at least tested them?
Possible to hear a brief description of the sonic signature?
How do they compare with a Zeus XR?

I was actually about to buy an XR, until I heard these 2 launched.... :k701smile:

I only listened to Valkyrie at CanJam SoCal about 30 min at least and forgot my Phantom for that moment. I think it sounds more detail than Phantom but less warmer. Some Headfiers said that Valkyrie SQ is between Phantom and LegendX. Wraith is not my cup of tea!

Well i almost got no sleep last night, because i could not stop listening to music with N8 and EE-LX(Balanced,i really havent gave tubes a chance yet) After 6 or maybe 8 hrs battery was near 20 or less% and i couldn't stay awake for a re-charge LOL

So far things like Massive Attack, Ghostpoet, Portishead, Ondskapt, Pink Floyd, Legendary Pink Dots, Extreme Black n Death metal(well-recorded ones) have so many subtle layers revealed, Agalloch is incredible, Edwards voice on Pink dots is right next to you

Things like Massive attack & Ghostpoet have so much low end, its unbelievable

i really have not tried many/any of mi hires files yet,i have not listened to so many cd rips in a few years, even they sound incredible, Certain General_Novembers heat is exceptionally dynamic

The best way i can explain the LX is a speaker experience,at times they just disappear in my ears/head and all i feel/hear is music

The Wraith and Valkyrie are now available for pre-order on the site!
No rest for my wallet eh? Those faceplates are amazing! Too bad they arn't reversed. Amethyst on the Valkyrie looks insane. Good timing though, I was looking for a pair of universals to complement my CIEMs

Oh wow, the wraith comes with the EA Cleopatra cable?
Did a double take and checked. That might actually explain the price tag somewhat.

I really like the look of the storage can. Just ordered one from Charles at the Headfoneshop in Toronto for my Legend X.
Just pinged Charles to see when he's bring Wraith and Valkyrie in.

I heard mostly Zeus Sucessor being thrown around with the Wraith, and I'm not sure in a good or bad way since I ended up moving on from Zeus, so it makes me wonder.

The descriptions out of Canjam definitely interested me regarding Valkyrie, and SQ between Phantom and LX? Definitely sounds like my cup of tea.
