Update 6/25/18: Hey everyone, thanks to everyone who applied and everyone who is interested in these headphones. We've closed the application for beta testing in this round, but if you want to stay at the forefront of our product announcements and testing opportunities, you can join the Aiwa Labs email list or Facebook group. Hello everyone! I am proud to be making our first product announcement as a sponsor of Head-Fi. We're about a month away from releasing our first over-ear headphone since the US re-launch of Aiwa, and we'd like some Head-fiers to put them through their paces. Our main objectives are to get feedback on the sound, and to identify any firmware glitches that our internal testing may not have found yet. Please note that although the headphones are not final retail units, but are almost identical except that they won't come with the manual, carrying case, or final packaging. Apply to beta-test the headphones here. Here are some of the basics - more details to be announced soon: Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX / aptX LL Over-ear, closed back design Biocellulose-based driver cone with flexible surround Aluminum, leather, plastic construction Selling price $199 Estimated Release date: July 2018 Thanks for reading, and I'll be happy to answer any questions.
