Looking forward to hearing more about this headphone. Good to have some more options in the planar world.

The sound is super nice! Think planar Focal Clear and you are pretty much there.

Hi Phil. Have you heard one already? And if so, a production model or the prototype that was at the Bristol show?

Cheers

Was it at the Bristol Sound and Vision show? I didn't know :D

Yeah £599 is the price but ETA is still speculative.

So they should come in under $1000. Not cheap, but nothing too insane. Looking forward to hearing these!

The cups look nice, but not a fan of the yokes/headband.

One looks, TOTL'ish ...the cups that is,

the yokes low-fi ish

the headband mid-fi ish

Any more news on a release date? The silence is deafening.

Audio Sanctuary UK lists tentative release date as June 18th. They were at the Munich show last month but I've seen no reviews.

With Quad engineering behind it, this could be something pretty great. It's under $1K too. Imagine if Focal released a planar? They would probably go for $6K plus.
