Haha, that thing is possibly even cooler than the Blow Up Beyer!
4-16ohm? Insanely low, does it have speaker drivers in there?

Superlow indeed! You can adjust the volume per side with that big knob. I have never seen such strange version of adjusting volume haha!

Vendomatic? Including the logo of Vroom & Dreesman (nay, Vendex)? How old is that thing?

When I google "Vendomatic", all I get is sewing machines.

I have no idea at all. I will ask the previous owner but I don't think he knows it either. It is an old one. I posted this hp on the hp-forum to see if someone knows little more about this hp and I think he said it was from around the 70's.
I will post his post on the hp below:

"4-16 ohm is the tipoff that you're dealing with typical 70s paper-cone headphones, none of which could stand up to a modern microphone-capsule mylar dome dynamic. Oh, the earpiece mounted volume adjuster is also a dead giveaway. However, a housing very similar to that one was also used for some mystery electrets, so there may somewhere be a goodish-sounding version of the same. But that ain't it."

I'll, uh, take that as a compliment?

Indra, it's late as hell, go to bed.

All I can say, Rik, is it's a good thing you've already decided to part with the K1000s...you might just wanna get back into headphones!

Well, maybe a 750 or 2500, but not an Edition 7/9. Too much money for too much plastic.
Seriously though, the Edition 9 has to sound very good indeed before I would choose it above a HP-1000, HE60, K1000, L3000, etc.

We'll see.... But either way, it won't be an Edition 9, I'm using headphones far too less to say that an uber-highend one is worth it for me, hence why I'm selling the K1000.

I have been visiting my parents last night. Those are always bound to be late nights. Have been complete sober though, had to drive back
Anyways, I went through the vinyl collection with / from my dad. He couldn't find his good old ones from for example Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young but we did find some others wich I think are quite nice. Diana Ross, Sting, Leonard Cohen and stuff like that. Too bad I don't have a vinyl player atm so can't check them out already

Anything that doesn't pop and crackle like mad will do fine. Thanks a lot!
I only have a couple that are in good condition, I just haven't had any time lately to visit vinyl shops as none are really close to where I live.

How's your 'Bad MF-' wallet?? Any surprises for the meet from Rik??
Howsabout......... balanced HD-650's? That should be an adequate replacement of the K1000.

With what amp would you drive those? GS-X?

BTW. I've got some pretty good records lying around, but I don't know whether I will be able to take them to the meet. What kind of music do you like?
