    Subscribed!

    PS: Put a frequency response like the Audio Zenith PMx2, add a clean CSD and low distortion, plus a subjectively even, natural sound and you're golden.

    Maybe I'm weird and spoiled but rather than another "a better HD 650" I'd rather have, say, an HE-5/6 that you can buy new and doesn't self destruct, or a HE560 without the treble fuckery ...

    Interesting. Try not to repeat monoprice with m1060 when a good driver was wasted due to not paying enough attention to an enclosure.
    Also "verum" and fake wood - wrong message IMHO.

    Sorry, but M1060 don't have a good driver. It doesn't have anything good.

    Those headphones on photo&video aren't made from fake wood. Fake by definition is claiming to be something that one is not. Never claimed it to be a wood, just a demo of aquaprint capabilities.

    Depends on point of view, I guess. Personally dont see a reason why to call a thin layer of print with wood pattern/texture a "fake wood".

    No problems here. It can look loose but in fact not. Headband is made from 0.5mm hardened steel and at the same time lightweight, rigid and sprung. Titanium knob at the the top was chosen because of combination of strength and lightness.

    The self destructing is what makes them fun though

    I like my headphones too be "fun" like a nice action movie, not "Fun" like a Dwarf Fortress game where everyone gets eaten by skeletal vampire were-lorises.

    rofl :D
    :eek: :D
    Wait... You missed a zero, or two, right? This cannot be: a new premium headphone in the lower 3-digit numbers, rather than the not so low 4-digit figures? I don't think that that is allowed these days. Hope I'm wrong!
    Taking it from a build project to production. I guess that's a huge hurdle. Hope you can do it.

    Looks like a fantastic achievement so far. Lots of good wishes for the future!

    I believe I am the first person in the US to hear these headphones. I'll be posting impressions and more measurements soon but just to wet your appetite, look at the driver matching on a DIY planar. Very agreeable frequency response as well.

    Sonnuvagun, @cskippy you've been holding out! Looking forward to impressions etc soon! Also, @Garuspik, you mentioned there was a pair within audition distance of me (well, hopefully within the NCR region or Luzon at the very least, not up for a flight to Visayas or Mindanao just now)? Mind sharing where I can get ears on them?

    Yeah, Cskippy really gave me a favor. I'm very glad he agreed to help me and make a review.

    I'll think about it ;) They'll be in Puerto Princesa City.

    Ahh, dammit. I'll need a plane ride to get there, or at least a very long boat ride, so less than likely I'll be able to demo em any time soon. Thanks though!
