FFS please no… I love the idea behind this but… let me have my 600 ohm driver still.
I will wager those pads won’t be as good as the dekonis lol. Detach cable… they should have done that a very long time ago, so about time on that.
this currently is my biggest issue, the headband looks less padded and theres no screws so it doesn’t look like we can fix it, I see the filters inside so hopefully we can still service the pads but I don’t see a way to mess with the yokes or anything its like an all in one unit similar to the T1 which is annoying.
My personal opinion? The aesthetic is dreadfully bland and pathetic compared to the ones we have now, lack of serviceability, pads while are a nice change of pace have quite a bit to hold up to when it comes to dekoni which appear extremely similar, the filter tells me the trebles been dialed back by a very large margin, still no curved drivers? come on beyer, lastly so help me… if this signature is like the 3rd gen where they completely flipped it around to an extremely warm signature headphone I may be quite upset.
If possible id take off that headband immediately and swap it to one of the old ones thats easier to work with, hopefully they will give us different looking aesthetics, 48 ohms just sounds awful so I hope they give us the option to step that up, detachable mini xlr sounds nice… but i wonder is that a 3 pin like the 1990 or 4 pin like the drop 177x go? $329 is pretty damn steep when you can find these at like 250 ohm in mint condition for like $100 hell I bought a 770 for $70 last week for a friend in whats like brand new conditioning just the pads were worn down.
also, you would think considering how popular the 880 is in all respects they would do something with that headphone as well… I am pretty disappointed in that as I love the 880 but do think it could use some changes
When these do show up on the market, best be sure I will be snagging the 990 and sitting with it
