SR Lambda: Great working order, good condition all around, pads are older but fully intact with plenty of life left in them. I can take pictures if anyone is interested. The SRD-7/SB box is great, I've had several different ones over the years and this is the best Stax box I've had yet. Actually probably the best of the many dozens of headphones I've had over the years, tied with the PMB500 (I'm not ready to sell those, sorry.) -- SOLD (I asked for $375 shipped). I...

Also interested in a comfort comparison. Thanks! nick I also thought that the SQ5 looked better than the ES7-- until I saw them in...

I did, however, find a nice little thing after a bit of testing. Gluing the thick felt down really, really firmly. I ran my thick industrial superglue around all the back vent holes plus the rim and stuck the felt down really hard and the bass firms up wonderfully and some of the warmth goes away....

Technically, yes, but everyone still does it. I think the quick A/B has its place, as long as one goes into it aware of the limitations and danger of having one's ear misled. Also it's often the only comparison available, so even if it needs to be taken with a grain...

Knowing AKG, probably, but I don't think there has been real evidence for it. Well, there have been a lot of versions of the DKK 32 driver capsule with different parts numbers for different headphones (2030Z0008 for the K340, 0007 for the K241, 0010 for the Sextett or K240M, etc.). I believe it's also been shown in this...

Around here, maybe willingness to open up the headphone and tweak it counts in the same way, so you still get macho cred (from some people, in some respects, naturally) Quote: Originally Posted by...

I'd be hesitant about facing the adhesive side toward the driver, depending on how permeable the adhesive layer is-- it could just act as a reflex disc, not making acoustic use of the felt part at all. Of course, that might sound fine anyway.
Quote: Originally Posted by mypasswordis I did momentarily hear the K340 without electret connected while I was modding them and although it does really only add brightness and sparkle, I could never listen to the K340 without it. A clean and extended top end is one of the things that separates the men from the boys in heaphonery, and the reason for all the expensive complexity of the K340 in the first place. If one can do without the electrets,...
I'm sure all the naysayers will get really manly hearing aids when they're 45. Forget cowardly long hair, manliness is scoffing at them and doing what you damn well please.
