Milos brought the King Sound Emperors and let me take a listen and measure.Sound
TBH, I didn't like these that much. They did sounded rolled off on both ends, and quite scooped relative to the SR-009s. Seem like I was hearing music on a room with slightly weird acoustics. Still, fairly clean though. There were quite a few similarities with the 009s, but the cans were not as well executed.
I wished I had compared the KS with the Lambdas side by side, but going by memory I think I liked the Lambdas better (SR-407). These were heard out of a SRM-727 (modified).Comfort
I felt these were quite comfortable, but I didn't feel a secure fit.Presentation
The build was not at the level of the SR-009/7, and don't like how they look... but to be fair, I don't like how the toast like Lambdas look either. Hell, I don't like the 009 Franken-band. I guess one buys these cans if one likes what one hears from them.Price
I think they are going for $625. The SRS 2070 combo might be a better overall deal depending if one digs their sound better than the KS.Overall
Not Oh Mie Gawd. But exciting to see a new player in the stat world. And for their first headphone, not bad IMO.Measurements
The deep null fills up quickly in the CSDs and might be a coupling artifact.
