great price


from heavyharmonies No. No it isn't.

You've fallen for the marketing hype.

I've collected headphones for over 2 decades and am a voracious reader at head-fi.org. I've owned headphones that cost over $1,000 and as cheap as $8.

People NEED to explore and experience headphones outside of mainstream marketing. Companies like Bose, Beats, Monster, and Apple spend as much or more on marketing than they do on engineering.

See what's out there at much lower cost. When you can get 95% of the performance at 30% of the cost, it's worthy of consideration.

For ANC BT I recommend considering the Taotronics Soundsurge 46 (the late 2019 update with USB-C, not the prior generations) which can be purchased for well under $100.

For wired planar over-the ear headphones, the Monoprice m570 and Takstar HF-580 are worthy alternatives to the more expensive Sendy Aiva and Audeze LCD models.

I realize that there is a current anti-China sentiment, but most of the name brand manufacturing occurs outside of the U.S. as well, e.g., Audeze Mobius manufactured entirely in China. There are bargains to be had in the world of Chi-fi.

A/V is one area where the old adage "you get what you pay for" really is not always the case.

Yup I checked thats gold color model which is the latest one released in 2020. Only this model carries USB type-c and Bluetooth 5.0. I red somewhere that only gold color comes with the latest update black and white color haven't been updated. Will update here when I find the link.

Edit: difference link added

very interesting. I think they are trying to get rid of 46 before 46 plus. Where can I find any website selling 46 plus?

Yup it looks like they getting rid of old stock. On their website they don't have white and gold color model. I checked on Amazon for gold color model currently it's showing unavailable. I have drop email to support to check if they carry USB type-c for this model.

I went back and forth with their support over which version of these headphones are listed on Amazon. I initially received the version with micro USB and the older Bluetooth standard, but the next order I placed had the upgraded version of the black headphones with USB-C and Bluetooth 5, so they do exist.

Taotronics.com is behind on shipping. I ordered a lamp (5/12) and headphones (5/16). Neither has shipped.
