Only headfi could consider $1499 "reasonable" :) :) (yes I know in the grand scheme of things such as Spiral Ears, Empire Ears, 64 audio etc etc, but still) :)
I've seen much worse spending on car forums.

Can't wait. Hope it's the FIBAE 4
I hope so too. Based on what Piotr has mentioned so far about their (provisional) tuning, they sound very interesting! Although he did indicate that the release would be around December, so perhaps it is something else. I guess we will have to wait another day or two.

Yup, if you follow us on Instagram (if you don't you should :D) you might know we selected 10 reviewers to participate in providing us with opinion on a pre-production model we've developed recently. Whether it's FIBAE4 or something else - that I cannot tell you. Reviewers don't know driver count nor price range. One thing though - publication online of any impressions, pictures etc by those reviewers are not mandatory, but they are welcome to do so if they wish, so whether you'll see any depends only on them.

Mystery IEM? Sounds interesting! How about the FIBAE ZERO - revolutionary new zero crossover, zero driver setup from the new "Placebo" range. Hear only what your brain expects to hear... :wink:

Joking aside, love it when manufacturers do stuff like this. Will be very interested to read any impressions that eventually surface.

Well...one thing I can tell you is I am excited after hearing the F2, F3 and the Massdrop Exclusive. I will share what I can for everyone about the MYSTERY MODEL. My ME review is almost complete and thus far it is my favorite tuning.

As I suspected.. the mystery IEM..I was told not to focus on the design of this one, but man it is a striking piano black and it came with a new design Plastics1 hi-rez cable.

Custom Art has just been nailing it with their recent models. I am going to give this prototype a good listen today. I grabbed some sources and cables and will check in a little later.
