On 5 March Oak Village and Ocharaku’s latest Flat4-櫻Plus (Flat4-Sakura Plus), Flat4-緋櫻Plus (Flat4-Akazakura Plus) will be unveiled at an event called “Challenging the limits of earphone manufacturing” in Jiyugaoka. Both companies will talk up their awesome tech and techniques and at the end, attendees will get to touch and try both earphones.
Both earphones will have options for long (30mm) and normal (28mm) sound tube lengths and will go for pre-tax prices of 75.000¥.
Like Kaede I, latest Sakura Plus and Akazakura Plus are limited productions, this time to 500 units each. They are hand made, and according to the press release, supposed to be warmer, and fuller of soft reverberations than previous Flat4s. Further information about the event can be found here.
Count me in.
Check out Ocharaku’s Sound Technology page for more information.
As a long time Ocharaku fan I hope to be there.
