Rk100, 09 Oct 2020I don't see what's the problem, considering these will be the 'premium' ve... moreExcept they are meant for audiophiles, musicians and recording artists (top 0.001% at that), not the wannabees who want to look rich. 20 bucks that they'll sound worse, and be objectively worse in nearly every metric than wh1000 mx4 from sony or QC 35/NC700 by bose. Both of which can be found at little over half of what apple is charging
The problem with buying headphones at this price point is actually not the price but the user. Beyond what sony, bose and similar mass market brands offer, the only people that can appreciate the improved quality that comes above $500 are audiophiles. Most of the sales will instead be from regular Apple devotees -meaning these don't have to be $600 great, just better than airpods, which is an easy task.
If they sound good then why not ... but it's probably typical Apple so it might be quite terrible.
You can always buy B&O if you want good-looking wireless headphones.
price doesn't matter, people will buy it. Already seeing overpriced Beats everywhere.
After they will release this, the world , im hoping to copy that...especially the new spacial audio feature...is mind blowing and i think on over the ear Bose or Sony will be even better
gorpalm, 09 Oct 2020The world's gone mad - But I guess it's 2020, so Of Course Apple are releasing a $60... moreOver 40 years back, my brother was a hi-fi technician, and bought my mother a set of $50 or $500, professional head phones. Latter they had models $50,000, maybe it got up to $500,000. Ridiculous when you realise $50,000 would probably buy two decadent houses, with land back then.
But here, where is a single mention of the reason people buy pro equipment, performance numbers? I have seen something a bit like that for maybe $10 US, but unless it gives a cutting edge in performance, or at least a nice superior sound, what is the reason to buy it? The French might even ask, why should a company exist without at least that for the name and the price.
Second hand Audeze LCD series milion times better than this for similar price.
