Yeah VIVANCO SR75 looks same, is it using dynamic driver?

post #23027 of 23459

The one wikiphonia pictures also show dynamic on the band but ortho. Can it be taken apart without destroying the pads? I would check in that case.

How do they sound? are they good for portable use?

I wont disturb it... :D No el cheapo dynamic sounds this good. also

Apparently it's stock sound is pretty good already although I've obviously never tried it before. Nice to see rare orthos being used biggrin.gif

They're very close to the perfect enclosure for SFI's.

I once heard an SFI through a similar enclosure, and it's really quite good (for an SFI)

Hah, that vivanco is a joke. I've seen the same one and the original AT versions go for less than a third that price in the past. (damn headphone flipping)

Plenty of flippers on ebay :p

 

How much did you get the SS-L55s for? I'm curious now!

Maybe they were taking a leaf out of Yamaha's books and simply shortened "orthodynamic."


I have a box from a confirmed ortho that simply says Stereo Headphones and nothing else. Only thing that tipped me off was the input levels of 1 watt combined with the seller's inner ear picture of the driver mesh.

There has to be a few more unknowns or unseens out there. I know of two or three I'm on the lookout for that have yet to show up  on anyones posts here.

 

I would mention them but since everyone under the sun can read this I'd prefer to keep it under wraps to avoid flippers and keep prices reasonable..

 That and secure them for myself first

I ended with 3 vintage headphones which were dynamic , one from JVC , two vintage German. Now I check this thread if its confirmed ortho or not.

Recabled the Argentum...with copper cable. Irony strikes again.

Well is it Christmas? It seems so.

 

Postman borught me a few toys.

 

 

 

 

The TDS 16 is a replacment as my wife got my first one as her work headphone with a headstreamer.

 

 

The other 3: toshiba hr 910 ( offtopic here sorry ) is my first electret ( never heard one before ) and well. Will se at home from the stereo amp. So far not very impressed. nice mids and highs. no bass whatsoever.

 

 

 

and The hok 80-2 and PMB8.

 

 

 

The PMB has no earpads on it. Any idea on what would be a good fit? I would really appreciate some guidance on that.

 

The hok 80-2 is from the nos stock available on ebay.  And well I find it bloody astonishing. 

 

Really looking forward to hear the pmb with some actual pads on it... :S
