We repaired it too, was just a short at the jack (thank god for him). They were huge on my head, apparently they're sold with either a S-M-L headband. He even brought it in its original packaging; almost as bad as Grado!

 

As for SQ, well, you'd best match it with a high end OTL tube amp; very strident and glary on most amps.

So now I wonder, what portable setup is that weekly visitor using to drive his Qualia.

One member was telling they saw a dude with HD800 at the airport, powered by an iPhone. Could be another snob that like to flaunt money haha

They are pretty sensitive, and only 70ohm - doesn't take much.

Oh no, they were obviously home phones, that hadn't been used for years. The man was in his 50's.

 

In hindsight, I'm an idiot for not offering to buy them off him while they had the damaged jack redface.gif

Was just watching The Amazing Spider-Man for the first time finally and noticed Stan Lee was sporting something interesting in his cameo this time. Any idea what headphones he's got on?

Naw it was me. :p

Some kinds of bubble tea = yumm

 

Also, I went to a local company, Synapse, to get some advice for a school project. Apparently they designed these Samsung headphones (along with other products like the Nike Fuelband):

One of the employees there had a Denon AH-D2000! First time I have ever seen a pair of those.
