Wualta's dream is coming true with this shower of new orthos.

post #22083 of 23349

This certainly is fascinating.  Where's the under $100 pairs, heck even under $200.  Betcha soon.

 

Small portable options ( =easily driven and convenient  ) are a huge part ( the majority maybe ) of the market these days. Bring it on.

In reference to a cheaper VOLKSORTHO ( I agree with Vid's comment above ) still got my fingers crossed that Philips will come up with something cheap and snazzy in this area. They seem to be innovating pretty well lately and they have to notice all the increased fuss over this type of headphone.

Bring it to the masses.

 

If Fosex is well received on this one, just possible they will do a nice big round one later on.

 

Maybe we'll get lucky and some Russian entrepreneur will start releasing the updated TDS / Amfiton lineups with modern materials.

 

sorry people my post is overrun with "what if's" I try to avoid that lately, didn't work this post.

 

Resources are strong and their track record is long and excellent - but do they have the passion and dedication to make something truly great....?

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well to Fostex, RP = Regulated Phase Technology. I don't know if that's limited to planars. Hopefully it's a new ortho toy :D

Hopefully it isn't a new ortho dream toy that can't be reached.

Yep about the parts.

Even the pads look like they're from the TH600/900.

I think they do. I'm more worried whether or not the market isn't overly saturated to even have something new and good brought to existance.

That's the HOK 80 driver in the HD 600 cup.

No way, it's smart combination modding, as you'll see that the EQ can be kept broad thanks only to groundwork done via physical mods. Whoever wants to impose limits on themselves can do it, I'm just after the best sound by the most appropriate means.

 

I've not measured an upper treble as clean as that, too.

post #22091 of 23349

Yeah - the waterfall itself looks absolutely fantastic. I bet they're a good listen. 

post #22092 of 23349

They sound neutral and reasonably detailed, though no sub-bass at all, and I think the HD 600 cup/pad works well for them. A fresh listen tomorrow should bring up any issues.

 

Don't get me wrong, having it all as physical mods would be more convenient, but the HOK (version 1) won't make that easy for you.

I find more satisfaction in a purely physical mod, but I'm not adverse to EQ either. 

I'm just waiting to get my hands on my U70. I'm expecting it to be a losing battle, but I won't give up without a good fight.

The difficult orthos by nature force you to abandon conventional ways.

Like doing an entire headphone transplant :D

 

I'm hoping I can cure the biggest problem of the U70 without much difficulty. 

My theory is that by either fixing or suitably replacing the completely degraded ear pads, I won't need to take such drastic measures to achieve something enjoyable. 

One idea was to re-coat the ear pads with 'plasti dip' - which is a spray-on, removable rubber-based colour finish for cars. 

 

Anyone tried something like this before?
