Final design’s ‘Muramasa VIII’ is the first headphone audio cut out of stainless steel. Not only does it look amazing, it comes with a Two-way 40mm driver unit and weighs in at 850 grams (more then double the standard headphones). Besides its mammoth size and weight, the pair of headphones boast a low impedance of only 16 ohms (considerably less than other noted and branded headphones), and a common output level of 112 dB. Speaking of the in-depth aspects of the headphone, it is based on a two-way configuration, with a main speaker and tweeter in the ratio of 40 mm by 8mm. In addition to a high frequency circuit, the 40mm driver unit was added to the network without the need of going through the tweeter, and all this is in clear coaxial configuration. Big, heavy and expensive (illustrated by FAD), wonder how well these $8,000 headphones will go up against Grado, Beyer Dynamics and the likes. More looks after the jump.
