I was wondering what the great Dr. Lirpa was up to after leaving Audio magazine a decade or so ago.  These look wonderful!

This has to be an April fools spoof... 




^indeed it is and my money is fully on this being a joke for these reasons:
 
1. if you're going to introduce an iem with 20 drivers - which makes no sense from a technical a standpoint - that costs $8000 you'd be damn sure not do it april 1
2. jude claims to hear beyond 30kHz
3. the housing contains at best 10 drivers that appear to have been dumped in there along with a huge resistor and inductor without an concern for aesthetics or arrangement 
4. do you realize how big 41mm is (americans i'm looking at you :wink: )?!!

to your point #1...... some great stuff has actually been announced on April Fools.... for instance Gmail....remember when everyone thought it was a hoax....created great buzz for it too
 
but i think these are ridiculous

1) How comfy they will be  2) Will they be easy to drive  3) I don't know about some of You, but if I had that kind of moola I'''d rather get a pr. of the R10's, a sweet headphone amp, high quality interconnect's.  Well You get the picture, Oh and have some change left over for pizza and a beer!  For those of You who like and can buy them more power to You, let Us know what You think!

"A" beer?  Why not 6, or 12?
