To purchase them now would set you back Â£175 each! (that's $375 AUD)
Here's the product blurb from Flare Audio's website:
"Our Reference R2 Earphones take Flareâ€™s unique distortion free sound down to the micro level. R2â€™s innovative design offers unrivalled purity of sound in an incredibly small and lightweight package.
Turned on a robotic precision lathe and created from one solid bar of aerospace aluminium, R2 is incredibly compact and has a far higher degree of sound isolation than other earphones due to its solid metal construction. Each R2 driver enclosure measures just 12mm x 7mm.
R2's cable and driver assembly is user-replaceable (a first for an earphone product), and comes with professional grade Complyâ„¢ Isolation memory foam earbuds."
Personally, I think the sound quality these little marvels deliver is absolutely astonishing.
For the money, they represent fantastic value. Goolge the reviews and decide for yourself.
I'll be keeping mine.
Also included with the earphones is a black, drawstring carry pouch.
