I've been trying to find more info on this as well with not much luck but I'm not going to bite on this one seeing how I just bought the MP XXX earbuds. If the trend over the last 2 years continue, there should be some good deals by Audeze on Black Friday and the iSine's have been out for a little while now so cross fingers and hope that maybe the iSine20 will go on sale to a price similar to whatever these M300's will be.

Perhaps the iSine10 will be at M300 price, but the 20 dropping to match the M300, which I'm hoping for 200 or less, seems unlikely. Would be great, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

I should ask, how much do you think the M300 will sell for?

Nice price, i'll probably jump in on these. Hope there won't be issues with their 1st version of the M300 unlike their M1060 which they had to release a V2 soon after to address the problems...

They even copied the surefire earlocks, which is kind of hilarious. I wonder if (a) they're the same dimensions and (b) if they'll sell them separately.

Seems to be a pretty reasonable price, especially if they managed to get the frequency response right.

I cannot really say I'm a fan of the cable (I'm generally not a fan of nylon/cloth-coated cables) let alone the design though. The rear vents look like effing camomile blossoms.
