what price range would that be do you think?
700-ish USD/EUR

It's not my personal guess, just what early reviewers are saying, dunno why they listed it as "TBC".

yeah I didn't know where this was landing on their lineup. didn't get on with the Solo that much but the 12 Classics V1 were absolutely brilliant!

@MezeTeam out of sheer curiosity are you updating the 12 Classics any time soon (V3) or should I just pull the trigger?
