I recently bought a pair of Koss UR55's because i had a buying itch, and I remember them sounding good in the past. I stupidly returned them for the DJ100's, which I didn't like.   I had to return my first pair, because they had a defect/short in the in-line Y-fitting that goes from single to dual cable. I'd have to squeeze or otherwise manipulate it to temporarily get normal sound. Otherwise they would sound distant, with a reverb delay and very faint vocals. This first...
Just FWIW. Assuming these links display in english. Both of these links within the JVC web site are listing the s600's as being "Carbon-Nanotubes-Headphones". Listed in both the category, and the title. http://www.jvc.ro/product.php?id=HA-S600-E&catid=100138 http://www.sk.jvc.eu/product.php?id=HA-S600-E&catid=100123 The US Site uses the same actual item description as the above two, where they are simply called "carbon diaphragms", but never uses the word nanotube. Maybe...
I'll leave this here in case anyone else has the same issue. I managed to, at least temporarily, fix mine, I think. I figured since if I squeezed the Y-fitting, I would get sound, that would be my starting point.   I took a sock, and a pair of vice grips. Wrapped the sock around the edge of the fitting, and squeezed it relatively tightly at 3 points along the length.... at both edges, and in the center. I squeezed the narrow sides, with the Koss logo facing up. This left...
I had a recent urge to get a few cheaper pairs of decent cans, and decided on the Koss ur55 and Beyer dt235. The Beyers sound a lot better than i expected (I'm sensitive to sibilance). They have a really unique sound which is addicting. I don't know why they don't get more love around here. If this is a taste of what the dt880's sound like, I may have to try a pair.   The Koss, OTOH, were defective, brand new, out of the package. Regardless of what they were plugged...
Thanks for the info. If the S600's sound this good, I could only imagine how good the 400/500 series will sound. Will probably be picking them up soon.
Think that's almost everything..... Too bad theres nothing amazing in there. I should be there between 10-11.
 I have the HT21's and didn't really like the sound. They sound very thin and muffled, IMO, and they have that closed can honky-ness in the mids that I can't stand. I am not a fan of forward mids (in the vocal range), so some people may like them. I ended up with the HA-S600's, which are listed as having carbon diaphragms, but I can't tell if they also have the nanotube drivers. They sound pretty good IMO, if you like a darker treble (I do). The best way to describe their...
You won't hate those of us that no longer have anything on CD, will you? :) I will be bringing my Android phone (spotify), Digizoid ZO (amp), a USB stick, microSD, and maybe SD card, all with the same tracks. And one more question. Is payment for food mandatory, even if we're not planning to eat? Is this something provided by you (catered), or optional kitchen food on-site?
Welcome back to head-fi! I think there will be a few people with your cans, but I doubt there will be a shortage of people wanting to listen to the HD650's. I'll be first in line :P Everyone has a cell phone nowadays. As long as people are content plugging their iPod, or Android into your setup, I wouldn't worry. I could see the benefit of a good source though. You could demo tracks that really make your gear shine, set the proper levels, etc... I haven't heard a total...
No problem! I've got about 20 pairs I can bring (listed on the first page). I guess I need to buy some paper tape :P   I'm surprised there isn't more response in this thread. There seemed to be interest in the main thread. I'm hoping we get a decent turn out.   I could PM you the info, but I think the OP (Sewer Guy) would rather distribute the info to keep tabs on who's going. Might want to send him a PM. If it gets down to the wire and he hasn't replied, I will send...
