Alright since Fostex won't ******* listen to its consumer base and release a successor to the 1970's T50 already:       I did it myself.    Cups and drivers are from my NAD RP18 mylar, a Fostex T50 rebadge. Headband and earpads are from a TH500RP.    Fostex, I literally just slapped the TH500RP pads onto the RP18 and it sounds incredible. I didn't even have to touch the driver damping or take the stock pads off.    Here are some measurements if you don't...
The SS-100 actually has the slotted disc magnets like the T30. Its the only T50 variant that has them.Very interested in the Odin and Ortophones, but the other myst offerings aren't very good (tyll has measurements of the Izophones 60)
noooope lmao I just got my SS-100 back from tyll, it measures slightly N-shaped but otherwise very good, I'm gonna make some pads of my own for it and try to get rid of the hump into 2kHz and post results soon. (Keep an eye out for the measurement PDFs when tyll posts the March update)
so any word on an ETA for when the final run will become available for purchase? and how many (roughly) of each unit will be available? I don't have a carbon but I've been saving up for the crimson for months, just want to know if I'll have enough time to get one before they're gone forever
Tyll won't be reviewing it because he has nothing nice to say. Its the same case as the K812. He doesn't like making negative reviews.
Where do you see these? I tried buying a pair from Fostex and they said they didn't sell them separately. I asked lawton, but he said he didn't have any and wouldn't for a long time. That was in november, he still doesn't have them.
1: No. 100dB is producing more distortion. If you raise the SPL, the distortion plot should move down by an increment equivalent to the amount by which you raised the SPL. Since Tyll gives his distortion in percentage, it'd be difficult to calculate the exact amount, but it is indeed rising. The fact that it lines up with the 90dB plot is mere coincidence and happens quite often. Alternately, the driver could be reaching the maximum amount of excursion it can create,...
1: Absolutely wrong, distortion isn't affected by deviation any more than the averaged FR plot does. 2: Measurements from two different headphones are absolutely comparable because the exact same methodology is used for each of them. Look at measurements for Audeze's LCD-2 and you will see that bass extension has no correlation to bass distortion measurements. Regardless of that, the Pioneer falls off a cliff below 100Hz, indicating (regardless of distortion) that it has...
