Utopia fanbois on suicide watch...........
I'm sad this sort of pricing has now become the norm. However, I also feel guilty for allowing it to occur.
Looks like they are worth it on aesthetics alone... said no one.
Well once a $6K dynamic came out you knew someone was going to release a $6K planar to keep the peens even.
Look, I'll be happy for Hifiman if this is good. I enjoy some planars immensely, however at what point does this all just become not worth it? $6000 for a headphone, seems ridiculous. At some point, wouldn't you need to recognize that headphones are limited by nature? If this stuff keeps up it is going to be much harder for me to give a shit about this hobby.
Also I like how Hifiman thinks they're Focal and Sennheiser with some of the worst customer service in the business. Classic Chinese business, all the ego and none of the care for the customer.
Too late! I already move onto speakers!
When you hit the $1K point for headphones you really have to bring something spectacular to the table. At $1K or above I should be hearing a headphone that does everything pretty damn well, without having to mod the thing completely out of recognition. It's nonsense it takes $6K to find a headphone that does nothing majorly wrong and most things very well. Shit like that is why some of us are clutching our 650s to our chest for dear life.
On the other hand, when you knock it out of the park $1k seems like a bargain. Anything over $1k and I'm wondering why that money isn't going into improvements to my speaker rig.
I thought this looked familiar...
Probably has a similar effect on the eardrum.
It just becomes irrelevant for most, like buying a Ferrari. I go meh....and don't even feel the need to click through. Some tech advancement will sort this out one day, 'til then I am happy to abide.
Is it April Fool already? It'll be fun to watch how head-fi review team will spin this one
Oh, it's the best thing since sliced bread, it's like an orgasm for your ears, you haven't heard music till you've heard it with these, the usual bullshit.
LCD-5 @ $7000 confirmed
@OJneg, when you organize the group buy please add me to the list, thanks in advance.
Those look extremely nasty.
I wonder if they're using gold-plated chicken-wire now ...
google can translate it for you
Shangri-la stolen? damn... how? that thing is huge, heavy, and hot (when powered on)
*Edit* probably just the headphones
I'm in for the beta program! Lol
I will write a glowing review of this headphone IF they offer me a discounted price of $3,999.
Someone says this is the real upgrade of the HE6 as the driver looks quite similar, especially the color
