Mmm....iem to be cherished in the years to come. Bought my set last year in Singapore. It cured my itch to upgrade yearly. No regrets.

This limited ed looks gorgeous.

I was told they’d ship in about 2 weeks, so unfortunately we have a bit of waiting left!

Wait is it really sold out already? Their order button is just a contact form, so they responded/invoiced all 200, and received 200 payments all within 12 hours?

It was about 3 hours, I’m sure many orders went to distributors too?

I could probably afford the connector. But truly its a piece of art.

That's true, I bet most of them did, so not really sold out because the distributors will be selling them I imagine.

Almost 5K on IEM? This must be sizzling good. Are these regular BA drivers or something special?

Yes.

On fire, indeed.

Yes, 13 BAs.

Or something special? You bet.

It would be a risky investment spending that much money just on IEM but I am very much interested in trying this out.
If there's an assurance that this is not just another hype but real stuff, I may seriously consider. I spent 3.6K on Fourte
once and decided not to do that anymore...

The erlky tuning is not only adjustable with 4 different built in settings, but its overall tuning has virtually no weaknesses; and it’s actually a relatively “safe” and mainstream tuning...it’s nearly impossible not to like it.

The fourte, while awesome, is far less “safely tuned.” For many, it has harsh treble, lacks coherence, and has strange tuning in the midrange frequencies.

To be clear, I actually think the fourte is amazing. But, you could also make a pretty strong case for it having one of the most polarizing sound signatures in the iem world.

The erlky is tuned with a truly masterful mainstream sound. With virtually no weaknesses at all, it is generally quite difficult to find anything that is objectionable with the erlky’s sound, build, or presentation quality.
