Here are some reviews:

I guess most of you would have found them on Google. The general impression (at this early stage) seems to be of soft treble, less-than-best detail, possibly lack of “punch”. It seems that the music moves slightly to the front of your head instead of being in the centre of your head. Two reviewers say that the soundstage from well regarded competition is wider and better appreciated. The big doodad on the sides of the ear cups are just logos and not levers or switches or anything! I suspect the CZ1 probably represents an interesting experiment which, at best, delivers an exotic experience that may not live up to its apparent goal: speaker-like soundstage. I’m not sure that’s worth the money. I’m saving up for a Stax.

from the interview down below the big doodad is the pipe that slightly delays the sound to replicate the delay sounds you get from speakers when sound is bouncing off walls. So you get direct sound and a slightly delayed sound through that pipe.

Wow. That’s amazing. Like an echo chamber. I wish they had designed it to not look like an oil sheikh’s loo handle. :-)

If you want an affordable experiment the Nighthawks are down to $299, at they offer a unique experience and are overall pleasant to listen to, and also has a bit of that resonant effect in the sub bass.
