Ooops - sorry man. Forgot to look around. I'm at work but will have to check my home computer. I believe I saved them on there. I thought I had them on my PM still but it got erased.
If I don't find them, I'll track down the member who emailed them to me.
Funny how I can change my mind. I'm seriously thinking of using my GS-1000/HP-2 as my main headphones and keeping the K-1000/Aleph 3 as a backup.
For me the the HP-2 has a musicality all its own. Comparing to my other phones makes the HP-2 sound a bit in involving at first, but after about 6 songs with it, it gets me into a zone that no other headphone can do.
The GS-1000 is exciting, lifelike no bass or treble roll off what-so-ever, and just flat out warm, musical, detailed and enjoyable. Plus you can make it sound like an RS-1 with 414 pads. It doesn't have quite the resolve or accuracy as the K-1000 or HP-2.
The K-1000 is extremely accurate and all that but the lowest bottom end (no amp can overcome this) just doesn't give the proper weight and it ... dare I say just doesn't have the fun musical quality my GS-1000 has. I feel like I'm being a good audiophile listening to it, but the GS-1000 is just more addicting and fun for me - subject to change at any minute.
Don't hold me to this - it could be temporary insanity. Either way, I'm keeping the K-1000 to avoid any regrets down the road (helps that the price keeps going up).
So, the F1 is going to be on hold for now.
