Mine slips a bit even though the screw is tight. I've determined it is a feature …
I'm interested in more of your impressions here. I've heard both, and nearly sold my PM-1's to help fund the Ether. The deal went south, and I can't quite bring myself to do it. The PM-1 just has something. I have spent a long meet day hogging the Ether, so I have my opinions as well.
I'm gonna mostly side step the questions. More natural, I think so, but to my ears. What made me feel better? A sound that resonates with my tastes, at a bit of a reach for price. Vs the HE1000, which is priced in Stax territory. I've been a fan, a one or two time beta tester, an upgrade guinea pig, and an email and say hello at the show friend of Dan's. That plays into the "happy" as well. Both the Ether and the HE1000 are great, great headphones to me. $1,500 is more...
Funny you say that. I spent a bunch of meet time with both, in 3 or 4 rigs. At the end of the day, I found the he1000 the more impressive headphone. The one I wanted to take home with me was the Ether. As beautiful, nearly as impressive, more honest, and it made me feel better. It was pretty close though. All disclaimers apply - meet conditions, not my rig most of the time, Mr. Speakers fanboy…
My experience makes me disagree. 12 to 18 inches is best. Otherwise no matter what, that big male/female XLR plug is always in the wrong place. Just my 2¢ Worth.
I'm glad they aren't blue.
Yeah, that one is a classic!
@moedawg140!  Will C. Wood - yep, usually a good sports school in general, and a good wrestling school.  I may not make this one.  My daughter has an event that day which will probably keep me away from the meet.
I just had a flash of a guy on a bike with Alpha Dogs on the outside of his helmet.  I know it isn't the case, but a pretty humorous mental image none the less.  We are almost neighbors, by the way.  I'm in Vacaville.
It must have been.  I have had the Alpha Dogs, and now have the Primes, which are about the same efficiency.  I have no issue with the HA-1 as far as volume goes, hence my question.  It seems capable of getting as loud or louder with the AD's or AP's as the Schiit stack, though the Magni/Modi is no slouch when it comes to driving reasonable headphones.  Anyway, my post sounded kinda snarky when I re-read it, so apologies for that.  I bet I listen at lower volume than you...
