yes, no, and yes it's extremely comfortable to wear, after a few minutes you even forget it's on your head. all while staying steadily in place, not at all like the ever-unstable K1000. you have to fiddle a bit though until the speakers are in the right position for your ears.
sound-wise, the two prototypes provided at our meet gave a very good foretaste of what's to come. beautiful treble extension and clarity without even the hint of sibilance, and a clean and nice presentation of dr. chesky's heartbeat tracks down to 20hz. the big problem with these prototypes were the over-emphasized upper mids which somewhat clouded the overall experience. once that's ironed out, imho this will be a killer headphone second to none. luckily i still have both my kidneys
Just want to mention, this proto's was just ONE of many possible sound adjustments. I optimised it mainly with and for Live Jazz recordings.
It's our aim to find out the best suitable one for your tastes. maybe different to other companies, it's very easy and fast to adjust the acoustics for us
