I've spent my fair share on high-end audio gear, including TOTL headphones, but the recent race-to-the-top pricing seems to be a bit disconcerting lol.

$6,000 appears to be the new $4,000.

That being said, certainly an intriguing offering here and excited to hear the reviews 🤣

Exactly, about time flagships would go $8K at this point. Go big or go home.
2 channel audio "summit fi" went into the stratosphere long ago - bigger market, more demand = higher prices. The headphone market has always been niche, hence prices were always pretty low. It's blowing up now, so IMO it's not terribly surprising to see more flagships and higher prices to match the increased market interest.

Now I'm really looking forward to the new lambdas, if they're ever going to release one. These MLER III mesh looks totally different from II.
