Three new "low cost" Custom IEM models arriving, with traditional tech. None of them have model names yet.
*3 way 3BA for around 7man.(70,000JPY) (This one uses a tweeter and two of the same model bass driver BAs, but the bass BAs have different crossovers)
*2 way 4BA for around 9-10man. (90,000JPY-100,000)
*4 way 4BA more "flat" or "reference sounding", $$$? Potentially solid fill resin on all/some of these. Added a nice "heft" to them.
I listened to all of them. The 2 way, 4BA hits bass HARD and didn't fall over a higher volumes and bass levels. I'd be in the market for a pair, if I didn't already have 3 sets of customs. We'll see... The 2 way, 4BA was easily my favorite of all of the new stuff (including Lakh).
I don't know why, but I didn't really like the lakh. I tried the REF again and also still didn't really like it. I kept going back to my Kanon's after each test track as a reference since they are my daily desk job headphones and I spend 3+ hours with them a day. It's very much a personal topic though, so I'd highly recommend trying in person before deciding.
The Wraith is real, but not for sale. It was a one off. Basically a KL-REF+Lakh pressure module.
The 24BA custom is also real, and of course a joke. He only made the one side and doesn't plan to make the other.
The BAs were 6x double Bass BAs (12x) that went into a "box" and then had a single tube.
Going back there yesterday, I'm still pleased with my Kanon. If I didn't have anything already and had all of these options available to me when I ordered last year (There was only the Kanon, REF and below, no Lakh yet), I'd decide on either the Kanon or the new 2 way 4BA. Glad to still be very happy with my decision. I was only in the office to get some new cables in the first place...
Some things I learned:
All of their models have different BA drivers (split per model name). No Customs with different model names re-use the same model BA driver. They're all different.
KL-Kanon is named after Pachelbel's Canon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOBYK_reo-4
"Next 5" is on some of their new models. It just means "Next 5 years" (of the company) and they haven't decided on a model name yet.
I was approached to write a review for them of my Kanons and will over the course of the next few weeks.
