OK lads... I just found some time to compare the QP1R with my computer setup:   Laptop > Audioengine D1 DAC > Trends TA-10.2 amp > Stax SRD-7 adaptor > Stax Sigma headphones vs. QP1R > Stax Sigma headphones   I made sure that no EQ was enabled anywhere, and that the volume was equal.   I listened to a 16-bit 44.1 KHz FLAC of Grieg - Music for string orchestra, p/b Australian Chamber Orchestra / Richard Tognetti (BIS SACD-1877). Excellent recording and beautiful...
Hi guys,   Received this beauty today from the UK distributor. Still unpacked as I write this...  
I have been waiting a long time (then I mean something like 20 years) for this type of solution to appear.   What makes these headphones amazing is the ability to adapt the stereo field to the position of your ears. Just imagine being in a concert hall. You can hear the music in front of you but the sound waves are all around you, bouncing onto all kinds of materials in the concert hall. If you turn your head 45 degrees to the right, you will hear the reflected sound...
Don't say that! One of the temple pads on my K1000 fell off and just disappeared. I have been looking for it like crazy! How will I go on with my life?Seriously, I'm considering producing new temple pads, this should not be impossible since there are no wires and no plastic or metallic parts involved.
I have used the Subpac S1 for a few months and it complements my AKG K1000 very nicely, not only providing more of that deep bass, but also providing a real physical sensation, as if being there in the concert hall or on the dance floor.   I do not use the in-built audio device (output) since the audio quality is bad (high s/n ratio and other problems). An RCA Y-cable feeds the bass separately to the Subpac's input, and the other end goes to my headphones.   Another...
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...
