Exactly how does it distort, in all volume levels or only in high volumes? Could this be the infamous rattle issue which many K1000 users seem to have experienced? (something with the grills, where specific lower frequencies in higher volume, depending on the recording, cause a lot of vibration which leads to something reminding of distortion, often only affecting either the left or...
 Wow!! Those are the coolest headphones I've seen for awhile. Thanks for sharing!
New K1000 owner, s/n 8855 reporting.    Here is my audio setup: Laptop -> Audioengine D1 DAC/Amp -> Trend Class T Amp TA-10.2 -> AKG K1000 + Kenwood SW-40HT subwoofer   I have now been listening for an hour and the headphones, sorry - earspeakers - are just disappearing on my head, it's amazing...
They seem to remind of something like Sony MDR-MA900. I was hoping for a successor to the K1000. Should I forget that..?
Test between Sony MDR-F1, Sony PFR-V1 and modified Grado PS500.   In this test, I have listened to a range of very good acoustic recordings (mostly classical music). I hope you find this test useful.   The winners   Comfort: Sony MDR-F1 Despite no clamping force and less weight than the MDR-F1, the bass ducts of PFR-V1 lead to discomfort. For that reason, MDR-F1 wins. Compared to the successor MDR-MA900, the MDR-F1 is softer and more gentle, both on the skull and...
 I'm quite astonished reading such a positive review of the audio quality of the Bose QC15. Those headphones are mainly acquired for the noise cancellation quality. I have only tried them a couple of times in a shop and found the noise cancellation superior, and they are also very comfortable. I guess I should have listened to some high quality recordings as well.  I heard that QC15's have a problem with audible faint clicking noise in the right channel, is that true? I...
    Will this mod also work with PS500?   I have the G-cush on these and agree on the artefacts you mentioned.     Exactly what venting did you do..? A photo of this would be helpful. I'm thinking of *maybe* try cutting off some of the foam.
  I read about that rubber grommet trick in a previous thread but haven't tried it yet. I tried putting on mic wind covers once but didn't find them more comfortable.   I have now used my V1 quite excessively the past couple of weeks and love them so much that I decided to sell my MA900 (now sold) since I don't use them anymore. The comfort issue is not as annoying anymore, maybe I'm finally getting used to those bass hollow ducts (with the original foam covers) and I...
