And did no-one tell us about these when they were announced last September? A new pair of highly expensive (xclusive) that have only been released in Japan, but that we still dream of using…
Coming @ $800 the Sony MDR-EX1000 you certainly want to consider many other options (even the Shure535 seem more “affordable”)
And why such a price? Well, seems like the 16mm drivers vertically aligned to the ears “for more realistic sound” have something to do, or the fact of including 10 different silicon earbuds for better fits (which in the end, you will only end-up using 2-3 models max before these beauties break).
“These 16mm drivers are able to inject 3-30,000Hz of audio goodness into your skull, according to Sony. A new flagship earphones on the market”.
Impedance: 32 ohms at 1 kHz
Mass: Approximately 7g (the cord/code excluding
Frequency Range: 3-30,000Hz
Max input: 200mW
Cord/code: 0.5m (OFC litz wire)
Plug: Gold plated stereo mini- plug
Released in Japan but the guys @ Audiocubes seem to be selling them. Have the money?
