That would be a nightmare. Three versions of one headphone was confusing enough; imagine how much B/S that would cause once the headphones are discontinued....
No. The internal amp in these is basically useless (if not detrimental) since you're already running it out of the amplifier in the source. This is called double amping, and tends to increase distortion and signal integrity loss. However, there is an ideal amp match for every headphone, and designing a matching pair is much easier than trying to match them yourself, but the effects in an implementation like this are either negligible, or as aforementioned, detrimental.
Of course. I'm probably gonna settle on something with TH600 pads (cuz those sounded wonderful on an otherwise stock mylar RP18) but Tyll's gonna measure 'em first.
High weight actually works better for portable because you're moving around more and most likely won't be having them on your head as often as you would at home.That being said I use my 460g DR-Z7 all day every day and I've never gotten neck pain from it. You can condition yourself to it, especially if the weight distribution is done correctly...
SS-100. In my hands. Tomorrow. ****. Yes.
This is the ONLY style of the EL-8 I'd consider buying.
They are not fast. They're clean. Zoom in on the 30Hz:This is why they sound fast, when they actually have slow transients which cause audible smearing and loss of low-level information. The IR is clean, but the transients themselves are very slow, as is shown on the IR and the leading edge of the 300Hz. The FR is offset by the bass thickness; they don't sound AS bright as the FR implies. These are good, but not great. The DR-Z6 might measure/sound better since the Z7's...
Ugh... why that wood grain...   Sub'd.
finally got one of these, ffs   took three years and $550 but I got it   seller should be shipping it on monday
I love how everyone totally missed my post a page or two back. Suppose that means the surprise will be that much greater
