Hey schiitheads. So I was one of the original gungnir/mjolnir stack bandwagon jumpers when I bought a pair of LCD-3s three and a half ish years ago. I bought it has an endgame setup into the foreseeable future and has served me pretty well fed from a squeezebox touch server. For reasons completely unknown I'm starting to get that itch again, and the sound of the multibit upgrade for the gungnir intrigues me. I was always one of the people that found the g/m stack very...
I'm literally thinking about pulling the trigger on black XLR zens to use at home with my gungnir and mjolnir because the monks are so freaking good. Am I losing my mind? I have LCD-3s for heavens sake. Is $360 on earbuds a legitimate thing?
Anyone who has these also tried the jvc fx850 woodies? I'm very curious if these get you 95% of the way there since I'm close to pulling the trigger on the jvc
Cool, thanks. How are you liking them. Do you find them comfortable enough for commuting? Are you amping them?
Does anyone know if there are fake 850s out there? I'm thinking about picking these up fulfilled by Amazon from multiple japanese companies. Is this a bad idea?
Anyone know how the Rag pairs with the Gungnir? I love my m/g stack with the LCD-3c, but it can get a little aggressive up top even with the classic drivers. I want to upgrade at some point, but not sure if it should be amp or dac first. I have no way of knowing if its the gungnir or mjolnir causing the slightly harsh highs.
Hi guys,   If anyone has a balanced hifiman cable for sale please let me know. Preferably 5ft+. Thank you and much appreciated.
 Between last night and today, I've put in about 6 hours of listening with the HOT and without. To my ears there is no discernible difference in the sound whatsoever. I'm not getting the out of head experience that sold me on it, smoother highs or more holographic sound. I ran it through the whole gambit. Rock, live Rock, Jazz, well recorded Bill Evans Trio albums, crazy stuff like Sufjan Stevens etc. Maybe my ears are failing me as I'm getting old and your mileage may...
I appreciate your bravery. Did you guys listen to it first before you tore it apart? I hope you didn't jump the gun like that, just for kicks at least. Well I'm no electrical engineer so those tear-downs don't do much for me, although at first glace it looked a little, um, sparse? Anyways I hope you're wrong. I can confirm it works, there is sound coming out of my headphones! That's a solid sign, right? Just breaking her in right now. We'll see how it goes when I fire up...
This thread is clearly tainted now, but for the non-conspiracy theorists out there here are a few pictures. I just got it today. If anyone without malicious intent wants to hear some impressions I can do that. I haven't posted on head-fi in a while, I've just been peacefully listening to my setup behind the scenes. Pleasure to be back. One thing that really pisses me off is snake oil and I'd be the first one in line to point it out when I see it.
