Product Description
New from RAAL-requisite, the SR1a Earfield headphone is the first monitor to employ the company’s trademarked “Earfield” technology. Driving this technology are highly specialized ribbon drivers that reproduce 30Hz to 30kHz bandwidth, eliminating the need for sealed chambered bass and allowing for open air baffles Read More

Besides the large price for your pretty “ok” headphones, these are uglier than my mom man

I fn LOVE how these things look. So damn ugly I seriously do love it. Describes a few relationships I’ve questioned myself for being in. I probably need therapy.

Hahaha too much to relate to there. Seems like the looks are half the marketing as more comments are made on them than the function itself. I tried these at CanJam SoCal and was fascinated as I haven't tried much Ribbon based headphones. You definitely have to find the sweet spot for them on your ears, but they really do have a unique clarity that I didn't find "cold" or "warm" or saturated or not. I'd be interested to mix a tune on these outside of a single demo.

$1 off? What a bargain!
Wow, with that background I assume you would have encountered discounters getting around MinimumAdvertisedPricing or MAP for short. Only been around several decades. It's used in distribution agreements for various reasons, sometimes to protect brand prestige or dealer networks from cannibalization. Drop certainly didn't find this loophole nor did they present the hurdle. Talk to RAAL on that one.

Yeah, figured it was MAP. Never been a fan. When manufacturers force sellers into workarounds on it I find the whole mess unattractive. I don't like getting trolled as a 'genius' and it was just a joke on $1 off that georgie porge thought warranted an insult. Be as sarcastic as you want but not a fan of the straight out trolling insult. I'm not working now so maybe my background and my acumen have a wide delta, but yeah, I figured it was contractual BS like MAP. But seriously to the manufacturer; You want to do a Drop, change your agreement... this is not the place for that type of stuff; against the whole spirit of this venue; at least from my p.o.v. and I would encourage Drop not to take these kind of deals or bundle a bunch of items like a hand made cocobolo stand... I dunno; just not a gimmick.

I am interested in getting these, however the listed frequency response is 30hz to 30Khz, what is the frequency drop off at 20/10 hz? in a market for a high end can so I am looking at Abyss 1266, lcd-4, Meze empyrean, Hifiman 1000 v2. thank you

thank you so much, I have a wide variety of amps. I have the JDS Element 1, OPPO HA-1, AudioGD-Master 19. Few people mentioned that Arya sounds like the Meze so I will purchase a used Arya, and see if I like it or not. One of my friends has the Meze so I can compare the two that way and see if spending extra will get me my end game. I am not too sure about the LCD-4 due to unit variance, but they are worth trying - there is a Audeze dealer on Audiogon selling them for 2100$ thank you again for your comments, and input!

You can also message Taron from headphones.com and ask for a deal on an Arya brand new... they hooked me up pretty darn good. The brothers that run that shop are incredible. I am skeptical on buying used high end headphones unless I can know for sure that there is nothing wrong with them, but that is just me. I would hate for you to get a bad set and then be misled that they don't sound great because I can assure you, they sound absolutely incredible especially if you like wide, open soundstage and immersive sound. They produce the tallest and most dispersed sound I've heard and listening to music on them is like a new experience every time - just finding details in the space around you that you never heard before.

Would love to hear these but no shop around here in Finland has a pair yet... This type of money requires listening for yourself, despite the raving reviews. I'm especially curious about how there can be solid sub-bass when there's no seal around the ear. Great to see all the new headphone tech evolving, it's good time to be a headphone geek!
