An open back flagship from Sony! If these fare better than the disappointing MDR z7 and share the same price tag, I think Sony will get another shot at competing in the high end again with how overpriced most flagships are these days.
To me, it looks like there might actually be two different headphones! A new closed-back headphone in the first picture and a new open-back headphone in the second picture. But the image of the headphone in the first picture is very small and blurry, so I can't say for certain.
Also, the headphone in the first picture seems to have a large protrusion on its lower right. Maybe that's were the cable connects to?
Here is a zoom-in of the headphone in the first picture:
I've always been a Sony fanboy. Can't wait to find out more!
Maybe one of our Japan-based members can compare these to the new Technics EAH-T700 for me.I'm close to puling the trigger on them but also curious on how they fare vs the Ether Flow, Focal Elear and now the new one(s) from Sony.
Deeply sorry, guys...
The original thread was deleted from Headphone club, it seems this is not an official proved news...
But this rumor is here since early this year:
The new flagship may be from sony new reference-quality unit, the price may be at the level 1999USD(i guess, as it is said more than 10000RMB)
Given Z7 was first announced in Cina(except on official website), so i still hope this will happen.
