Hmmmm... Highly tempted. Not been doing much serious 'phones listening of late (apart from a pair of QC-15's for the plane - not "seriou"s, but totally worth their weight!) but still very much enjoying hifi. Still could contribute a pair of SONY MDR-CD1700s (almost vintage ). Pencilled into the diary. Consider me a definitely maybe...CheersHamsta
Mine was a tape! (I only had a wlkman at the time) - The Cars' Greatest Hits in 1986
Had the same experience with Steely Dan's Two Against Nature - I sent them an e-mail about it and they checked it and pulled it from their listing when they found it wasn't HDCD-encoded. The guy at Microsoft said they'd send me a complimentary HDCD sampler which hasn't ever arrived (not that I'm worried). The album's still a winner, tho'.

Just looked at said 2nd photo and can vouch for the fact that that is how my CD1700's appear also. I'm guessing you're thinking the bottom of the right hand pad looks as though it's coming away from the housing. I can tell you mine looks just the same and it is indeed quite secure. Good 'phones. Good price. Surprised they're still...
Am going to be taking the big silver bird to London (from New Zealand) in September for my brother's wedding. Being a total of around 20 hours in the air I'll be keen to take my SONY CD1700s and enjoy some of the inflight entertainment (previously I've had to put up with those crap uncomfortable things they hand out). Reading through these pages I have previously seen people advertising adaptors for use on planes. My CD1700s have a mini-plug (eg for discman) with a...
Now, I'm a "speakers" man first and foremost. As much as many here may find it heresy, I really only use headphones as a convenience, much prefering the sound of "open air" hifi. HOWEVER, when it comes to bang-for-buck I think 'phones have it sewn up. There is NO WAY you would be able to get an amp/speaker combo to match your HD600/MG head for the same $$. You probably realise this - I mean you are asking "Should I sell my main rig worth thousands, or my 'phones rig...
Hi everyone - long time, no see Have just done a serch on the archives about this and found the end result a bit up in the air, so thought I'd ask again. I have oppotunity to bid on both a D-EJ01 and a D-EJ915 in the local NZ online auctions. What's everyone's opinions on these? Main concern is sound quality, as both are ridiculously portable. I must admit that I do look with a bit of askance at the D-EJ01's slide-in loading feature (scratches? - any...

If you want recent stuff, and like a bit of Jazz, my favourite Telarc Jazz CDs would have to be..... Oscar Peterson A Summer Night in Munich (1999) - it's like you're there in the hall, and NHOP's bass lines in "Nigerian Marketplace" are AMAZING! McCoy Tyner with Stanley Clarke and Al Foster (2000) - another superb album both musically and technically Ray Brown, John Clayton and Christian McBride Superbass 2 (2001) - for all my bass-playing bretheren out...
Highly interested!..... but not nearly financial enough to currently entertain the idea.
