I have no idea what they are planning to do but there could be something like the 4070 in the future if they ever update the Lambda.

Yes, an updated Lambda 'phone based on the 4070 would be nice.
Using a solid baffle as the 4070, and similar forks, headband, ... The 4070 show that the drivers have lots of potential, since it scale very well when placed in a solid housing.

Lets just drill holes in 4070

Well, not to drill holes in a 4070. But rather to buy a 4070 (another one), and replace the closed back housing with an open back one. Most probably made from some kind of wood.

Its a bit extreme though. Hmm...

Or metal mesh kind like the metal version of Lambda housing. That would be cool

Once someone comes up with this lovely new wooden lambda driver housing I'll be sure to note the specs, make it a few mm wider and stick the AMT driver in one.

There are a couple already though. I think its Jazz that has two wooden lambda DIY variants called Electrostat 1 and Electrostat 2.

*Hmmm Edit*

It looks like my second sample of 1.2B is playing nicer with Almarro/SRD7mkII than the first one, giving me better volume/authority as well as SQ. With proper tube/coupling cap rolling, this combo is sounding pretty good...

I thought to myself when you posted impressions of your first pair that something just didn't sound right. As all previous reports pointed to them being fairly easy to drive.(At least compared to the O2s)

I'm hoping my pair shows up tommorow and I can confirm this, and compare them to the O2s.(after some burn/run in time of course) And I will then report my findings.

To be fare these pictures are not of the actual Headphones or their cable, they are of the included Stax adapter cable. When these pictures were posted I thought "my phones don't look like that." The reason is that I had not even looked at the adapter cable. I had my GES built with a HeAudio jack, so no adapter for me.

So far about 36-40 hours of play and no problems to report. I'll get some time to seriously listen tonight (Over 50 hours by then). I'll also get a photo hosting account and get some pictures posted.

Further to the fit 'n finish; clearly the EH1.2B in its present form is not ready for prime time. I hope that with feedback from we early adopters the kinks can be ironed out eventually leading to credible new 'stat headphone.



Oops, pins too long!

I just canceled my 1.2B order because I'm not currently in a position to spring for a real 'stat amp. Probably for the best. (will dabble with a lambda or 404 or something like that to get my toes wet, as I have a SRD7mkII). Hope the 1.2B works out for you.

Hey, it's possible to put on of these in my online shopping cart for $0.00

I wasn't mean enough to try to complete the sale at no charge...
