Overpriced much? At that price you can get the German Made HEDDPhones with the same technology...
Tal00just read a article about this headphone. sounds it's very good.
scottluThe reviews here are mixed. Apparently, the technology is not ready for headphone use and they are very big and heavy for some people. I think I'll wait for a few generations to let them work out the kinks before dropping the $. BDGO recommends a pair of IEMs with bone conduction drivers. Now that sounds interesting to me!
Tal00as good as the heddphone sounds I don't think we need another 800 gram dumbbell-shaped neck exerciser, not when planars are getting lighter and better sounding.
Tal00Extremely overpriced and looks like a Monoprice copy, only 1000 bucks more. I doubt it sounds more than 30% better...
Tal00German Made != Good, quality is manufacture dependent, not country.
GKbokiIn principle I agree with your statement but generally speaking audio products made in the European Union/North America have a higher chance of being of higher quality than Chinese mass produced items. It’s more to do with quality control then with anything else. There seems to be a higher tolerance for defective items in the Chinese market. Having said that I think Apple phones are very reliable and they’re made in China but Apple has a lot of their people on the ground making sure that everything is manufactured to their specifications not every company can afford to do that. My father was an engineer and he has spent years cleaning up messes made by Chinese manufacturers because they were not following his engineered specifications. Simply because there was nobody on site to check them.
Tal00Quality control is tied to cost. When you have to maintain such a low cost on a product you don't have quality assurance. Hence the low price and quality on some Chinese products. You get what you've paired for.
Tal00I think i may have bought one.
Tal00I bought the Heddphone. I had to return mine because when there is deep bass the drivers rattle.
