Just in case it's not clear what those are, they're SFI dirvers encased in plastic (not the usual aluminium)

Also, make sure you don't cover the driver holes or the hole in the pads with tape.

By the way, what's your impressions about B&O U70? :)

I sent them to HK so I haven't got them yet (I arrive tomorrow). Also, they're padless so I basically have to either transplant them or make new pads.

Akai ASE-40 have so thin magnets and also the holes are so small.I guess they are bottleneck.

As I recall, the ASE-40 sounded excellent. Are there issues with yours?

I can't hear them for more than 15mins at stretch. They somehow sound strange.I think there are peaks & valleys in FR. Of all the orthos I heard I have liked them the least.Also vocals sound a bit nasal.

My bad I didn't see the pads in BMF's picture at first, mine are still rocking the originals in need of refoamed insides, or might use some square Creative headset pads instead, Creative makes some of the most comfortable pads ever if they can be found separate.

As far as I know, designer has no relation to any of soviet orthos, but Izophones sound much better than HE-500 anyway — cleaner, faster sound without upper-mids spike and solid bass texture. Mids and highs almost as good, as in SR-407. They going to make aluminium body, so I suppose that final sound should be even better, because plastic cups of HE-500 is crap that making sound worse. I had achieved surprising results when sealed cups of HE-400 with butyl rubber.

The guy says 5 micron diaphragm with double sided traces for Izophones.

post #23291 of 23649

It was izophones 40 an experimental one, not going to be sold (or so it was said).

20 micron diaphragm for 30s

Can you compare them to HP1 ? Are they really in between HP1 & HP3 ?
