Those look interesting. Only slightly out of the fuck it...I'll try them range.

I wonder if they will still work with a Lightning > USB-C adapter.

This video says Android version coming soon:

...I'll wait for that vs. running an adapter.

Potentially very cool.  Wonder if the active noise-cancellation has enough headroom to not clip when pounded by heavy bass.  Wonder if the app will support dynamic attenuation, effectively reducing the attenuation when the SPL drops.  Always wanted to dial in my own personalized ear-plug EQ attenuation curve.

I snapped some photos of the AMBEO VR model (tetrahedral mic). 

They are here:

Says it has the Apogee Soft-Limit.  Might it be like the Soft-Limit on the minime?

not sure the soft limit will help if the caps are reaching their SPL limit

Playback on B&W P3 headphonesSet 1 sounds more natural to me and I prefer the sound of that file set. They both sound good to me though and I would be happy with the results of both.

I'm really curious how these would do with a show with much higher SPL levels.

First set seemed a brighter sound (my preference) - is there a left/right reversal between the two sets??

Whats the verdict on these mics?  Can they handle the high SPL of String Cheese Incident or similar bands?

A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.
