Thanks! I've sent them an email. Let's see what they come back with. Cheers!
Price dropped to USD$99.
Hi, I'm quite aware how much earpads can cost, having owned the headphones in my profile (feel free to take a peek...). I still have a hard time even now swallowing the prices they demand but the HD800 pads are a new high for me at about 50% more than the HD6xx ones. I acknowledge availability is rarely an issue here in Australia. My issue is the exorbitant price we pay locally (versus importing). Admittedly I did not check out the local distributor because of that very...
Wishing you and your daughter a speedy recovery,
HI all, Looking to replace my current pads as they feel quite thin and seem to affect the sound quite a bit. A quick search yielded the below links:(in order of increasing price): http://www.custom-cable.co.uk/official-sennheiser-hd800-replacement-earpads-ear-cushions.html http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-Genuine-Original-534411-pads-black/dp/B008XI7ABS I'd appreciate it if you can advise of any cheaper options as these are pretty pricey for merely ear pads. Cheers!
Up for sale is a Denon AVR-789 AV receiver in excellent working condition. Used in smoke-free, pet-free environment and only at low- to medium-level volumes, this unit retailed above $1,000. The box comes with the amplifier, remote, manual, radio antenna and power cord. The Audyssey mic is not included. The box weighs about 13.5 kg so pick-up (from Sydney Eastern Suburbs to CBD) is preferable. Otherwise, I expect shipping will be around $30-$50, depending on which...
Up for sale is a 3m Cardas Smurf Blue for Sennheiser HD-580 & HD-6XX, terminated with balanced connectors. I bought this from another Headfier a few years back, with the view of a future upgrade to balanced head-amp. Suffice to say, I am still firmly on single-ended connection and have upgraded to the HD-800. This cable thus has become a surplus. I will consider any trade offers for a single-ended HD-800 cable. Happy to post anywhere within and outside Australia. Please...
Headphile uses solid core wires which, while still flexible, should definitely not be subjected to kinks.The main run of the cable, sheathed in what I believe is multi-filament nylon, is free from microphonics. The ends of the cable (at the plugs), where they are terminated with bits of techflex, are where things can get noisy. I speak from experience as a Blacksilver cable owner. If you are handy with soldering iron, I highly recommend trying the mods yourself (here's a...
Still worth trying to rwplace rhe elastics with even tighter ones. You may be surprised at the result.
I don't think these phones really 'warm up'. It's more likely your ears getting attuned to their sound.I'm personally not a fan of tubes so my exposure is almost all transistors. Speaker amps will definitely have the power to drive these but be wary of the background hiss they tend to exhibit. This (and the space taken) are quite the reason I do not use my Cyrus integrated amp with my phones.
