Why do you get so little time with the Stax?

post #4278 of 4460

1. AD1000x

2. Alessandro MS2

3. Shure 1540

 

Based on head time really, MS2 gets uncomfortable quite quick and the 1540 is a bit bass heavy to use all the time for my tastes, still like them all a lot. AD1000x seem to have the most speaker like/live reproduction which I do like, love how the drums/snare sit and sound.

Ranked:

1. Audeze LCD-2

2. Grado 325i

3. Sony MDR-XB700

4. Sony Pulse Elite

 

Usage:

1. Sony Pulse Elite

2. LCD-2

3. MDR-XB700

4. 325i

 

I'm a gamer so I tend to use the Pulse headset most of the time. But if I'm not gaming then the LCD-2 is on my head. and if I'm in need of bass the XB's. I enjoy the Grado 325i but after an hour my ears start hurting so I tend to not wear them often.

 

If I could find some replacement cups for the Grado that are deeper so my ears do not touch the speaker area I might use them more often.

 

 

I recently sold my Harman/Kardon CL, Sony V6 and Senn HD595. If I were to include those in my ranking it would go as follows:

 

Ranking:

1. Audeze LCD-2

2. Grado 325i

3. Sony MDR-V6

4. Sennheiser HD 595

3. Sony MDR-XB700

4. Sony Pulse Elite

5. HK CL (most uncomfortable cans I have ever owned.)

I have mixed feelings about the DT880. Sometimes it seems bright and sometimes it seems just right. I think its better now with the beta22.

bizarre, I'd think tubes would pair horribly with the K340 since it's already got warmth/bass problems

 

is it a stock K340?

Just because it's tubes doesn't mean the tubes are warm sounding.

Yes, the stock version of the bass light or neutral one. It needs tubes to add body to the electret treble; also takes the edge off.

These are warm tubes in a lush amp. But the military grade RCA adds real power and drive: it makes Arthur Rubinstein sound like Vladimir Horowitz.

Ah I see. I have heard there are two versions of the K340, I haven't heard either though. I am curious about them though.

There are at least two. No one really knows how many, but conservatively there's bass heavy and bass light. I'm supposing Tak was talking about the bass heavy, which supposedly is bloated in stock form. (There's even a conjecture that there's really only one K340 but they all sound different because of the aging electrets, but there's nothing to back that up so I don't believe it.)

If you're interested in how it sounds, it reminds me most of RS1.

Well considering different productions runs, I wouldn't be surprised they changed the sound at some point at least once. It's been done with the HD 600/650, K701/2, K240, K1000, R10, etc.

Plus three slightly different versions of K501. Yup, it makes perfect sense.

Well, I only have 1 right now so... AKG K240! Number 1!

 

I'll be getting more very soon, thanks to this cursed place.
