$8,000 Headphones Weigh Nearly 2 Pounds

By David Ponce

The Muramasa VIII are fancy headphones. They’re carved out of stainless steel and fitted with 40mm drivers with an impedance of 16 ohms, and a sound output level of 112 dB. We’re told this impedance number is low, and low is good. But really we don’t know anything about this measure and whether it says anything about sound quality. In the end, does it really matter? You have some fancy looking headphones that cost $8,000. You should also invest in a neck brace, as you’re sure to notice the 850g weight after a while. Mentioning that they will be released in April, likely in Japan, pretty much rounds up all that we know about these headphones.
