60...max 70...I would not pay more than that for these, and I would be surprised if they are worth more than that.
I own the H6, fantastic pair of headphones, Have the h3 as well, totally different sound signature, but still good. Altho h6 are superior, wonder how the new h4 sounds.
I wonder if their noise cancelling and useable on aircraft. Seems not.
recently got to try the H7 in a local store, although only wired because the battery was completely drained. they look great, feel great and fit very well. but the sound was quite lacking, i think... maybe they're tuned for wireless listening, maybe my phone (Xperia Z1C) couldn't drive them properly, or perhaps the cable that the shop dude gave me was extremely poor, i don't know, but the sound was missing the punch on the lower end while somewhat overpronouncing the mids with what felt like kinda limited resolution.
i tried both MP3s and proper FLAC files. the sound wasn't bad, just... not as good as i'd expect at that price range.
really unfortunate that i didn't get to try wireless listening. probably gonna return for another attempt and also bring my own cable just in case.
i'd still be interested in trying these new H4 as well. because no matter how good a pair of headphones looks, what's the point if the sound disappoints?
