    Now that is a spider cage.

    Interesting, but I think it'd be a risky to play "early adopter" on these. Don't understand the impetus for planar IEMs, personally. Doesn't seem like the tech's strengths would translate very well when confined to a miniature form factor. Just talking out of my ass, though.

    I wondered if these would drop today. It's a pass for me. I just bought jh13 pro v2 yesterday, so I'm set for iem.

    I did hop on the audeze website to check these out. B-stock listed in support of Autism Speaks. Very cool.

    Ha ha, no way! That has to be joke. :confused: Where did you see that? The product page on Audeze's site doesn't seem to be active yet. I just get redirected to the B-stock sale, which I don't see these listed under.

    Edit: Delayed apology for the dunce comment. In my defense, it was early.

    Whew, sorry. :oops: I thought you were seeing something that I wasn't, which made me wonder. It would be typical of Audeze to develop in-ear boat anchors. :p Lightness does seem to be a concept that they've (belatedly) embraced with the SINE series, however.

    Damn, is that an open design? THAT would be crazy for an IEM. Also a huge no-no for most people.

    No worries. If the past is any guide, that one will probably sound the shittiest. ;)

    In any respect an awkward device.
    Big (clumsy), open back? (leaking), inside your ear (discomfort) and planar (...).

    Audeze: For when your IEMs absolutely positively have to look like Peter Parker came on them.

    If the LCD-i3 was $1000-$1500, I’d pass, but if it’s $2500+, then I’m in. Can’t wait to order a pair! And I can’t wait for all those true unbiased reviews on HF from those who will receive a free review sample (it's the only people you can trust), or from those—mostly Asian (and I do NOT mean any disrespect to Asian people)—who, like me, will soon be raving over these phones.

    I know it’s early days but, can someone please recommend a ~$3,000+ aftermarket cable for these ‘babies’?

    Wow, mrweirddude's joke really set a few people off, kudos to him.

    As for Audeze, I'm always happy to see innovation for iems. Not sure an open-air tie-figher-wing thing is going to be a hit, though.

    Maybe if it's really good at reproducing tie-figher sound effects?

    Coining the term "On-ear in-ear monitor" for crap like this.

    What a guy! Smiling through the agony, a true professional. But you can see the pain in his eyes...
