Looks like a Jewel.
It does a bit. Price wise though I think it means 150,000¥ In the article, which is approx $1,115. So not in the same bracket as Bird or Jewel.

I love Red Halo fe,and i like little more than Jewel with his stock cable,for his natural sound and organic mid bass,
will see next days when will arrive Traillii the difference,also will try Jewel with First Time
Interesting. I prefer Red Halo FE over Jewel as well. I have FT cable with both.

I found something on another thread that appears to be related to this.

https://www.head-fi.org/threads/tokyo-headphone-festival-2022-mini-report-april-29.963200/

It says in the article - “Oriolus reference exhibit Szalayi , developed in collaboration with Jaben. 150,000 approx. BAx1, Planex1, Dynamicx1. I felt deep, musical and rich sounding.” And here is the picture:-

Really glad that this one appears to be vented.

Traillii/Jewel/Xe6 (on the way) are my top 3 iems, atm.

A more than worthy trio.

indeed...xe6 has even made me decide to revisit customs, mainly due to the kinetic bass tech. I'm optimistic it will sound even better when delivered in a custom unit.

we shall see.

if I can get my ears on a demo pair of either jardin or red halo, I will check those out as well.

Well, after reading every single post in this thread, and most importantly hearing the bird and Orpheus for myself here at CanJam Chicago (as well as the most often mentioned TOTL comparables), I threw financial prudence to the wind and bought them to pair with my N8ii. Will need a couple of months to recover from my financial wounds mostly due to the unexpected decision to go with the cable too, but feel this will be a setup that I’ll be able appreciate long beyond that timeframe.

Happy to join the birdhouse clan!

Next days i will do some trials,but listening now Traillii with the 6/7 song for me is little better than Jewel and RHFE,need to try Jewel with First time but,
Jewel seems little better bottom bass,RHFE very good and organoc midbass,but for his balance,scene,dynamic and fast Traillii i prefer.
Yes Mico1964,you have right

I go in cycles between Traillii and Jewel. After a while of listening to one, I switch to the other one, "rediscovering" it, and then a week or two later back, "rediscovering" the other one again. Maybe it has to do with a mood or the source or switching cables, but Traillii, Jewel, XE6, and Phoenix are in a constant rotation.

First Times is a solid cable. FT provides a blacker background, better detail, more sub-bass and mid-emphasis over most other stock cables.

Personally, I've heard the biggest differences with PW cables - the 1950 on the 64a A18t was my first "wow" cable moment.

The orpheus is the only other cable I've heard that to my ears offers something a step above...offering a crazy level of holography, scale, and detail-prowess.

The minuscule nature of diminishing returns are on full display with high-end IEM cables, for sure.
