Bingo!
One can pretty easily put a foam pad on top of the stand to raise the headphones a bit.  That said, mine is an earlier edition, without the foam piece in the box.  It sits in the box, unused, under the bed because the headphones don't fit on it well in the as shipped configuration.  I haven't gotten around to modding the stand.  it is a nice, simple stand, and a nice add in.  It is unfortunate that the Alphas don't fit well with the cables attached. I wonder about a half...
musicman59 - hmmmmmm.... I'm mid fifties and was born in '59. Or perhaps a '59 Fender?
I'm old(er. I lived "that 70's Show" in the 70's) as well, but I've always been sensitive to upper octave brightness. Disks and dots work for me.
I have to say, current political environment not withstanding, immigration has always been a strength to this country.  Oh, Schiit - OT again...
Currawong's PM-1 impressions should be accurate for the PM-2 as well.  The PM-1 beta group was sent the PM-2 earpads and cable to beta test on the PM-1's.  Per Oppo, these would be the only significant changes that would affect sound signature.  All other changes would be to material and/or finish (matte, painted rather than polished/plated) on the headband and adjustment mechanism parts.  If it is true that the other parts have no sonic effect (I am inclined to accept...
Yes, same thing.  I don't remember what the final correct names are - must be dog treats! Dan tunes them to his spec, pretty much by ear for the final tuning (anyone feel free to correct me if the method has changed).  He is quite consistent, and he has a really good ear.  If it were me, I would spend a couple weeks or a month with them as delivered before fiddlin' around, just to get a good solid handle on how they sound.  "Course that may just be because my moments with...
One dot and one disk in each side.  I think I'll try a second pair of disks at the SF Bay area meet here in July.  Really though, I think the one pair will work out to be ideal.  They were near perfect with just the dots, and I could probably make a case for them being more true to the recording without the single disk.  I just can't make a case for liking them better without the single disk in each cup.  That is what is so cool about the tunability.
  Alright already!  I just got done choking on my coffee!  I am a recovering midwesterner, having lived throughout Central and southwest Wisconsin in the mid 70's and early 80's, in my high school and college years (OK first run through college - in the end, I struck a deal with the UW system; They said never come back, and I agreed...). In a small Central Wisconsin town, the Phone book had this entry: fone - See phone or telephone. Very funny.  In truth, the town had a...
I'll pitch in a little here as well.  A much loved high end bass heavy headphone is the now legendary and departed Denon D7000.  The Denon is one of the headphones I really regret selling.   The Denon to me is a beautiful, lush, warm headphone that wraps it's arms around you and surrounds you with this euphonic, beautiful voice.  It is also bass boosted, and features bass to some degree at all times.  It's faults were the bass slightly overpowering the mids, and...
