HeAudio 1.3, 1.2B and the new JADE Stat Headphones - Page 57

post #841 of 2677
Well, a pair of HE60/HEV70 will be shipping to me tomorrow, so I guess I have to take the HE Audio stats off the desert menu too.

Not so fast, brother. I've been comparing my Headphile HE60 with EH1.2B, and you *will* need both..

how about O2, HE60, and 1.2B. that might be the trifecta.
post #845 of 2677
I have both, and enjoy them for different reasons.

This is the trifecta...

Pah, its not the trifecta unless youve got representation from each tech.

You must have gotten mixed up; I'm sure you meant to post this in the Stax thread

BTW, is it possible to fit the MkII with MkI earpads for less bass?

I never understood the Stax stand in the middle. It's a beautiful piece of work and all but it dents the cushions unevenly and positions the earcups perfectly to allow the dust to fall right on the stators
Of course, you can always use the ugly women's shower cap that Stax sells to cover your beautiful headphones and stand

The stand on the left makes more sense.

Once those AMT's come in a nice aluminum frame I'll start to take them seriously...

I'll do that when I have some more solid impressions.

While I haven't tested the Mk1 pads on them they should fit perfectly as that part of the headphone remains unchanged.

The plexi stand was designed for the Lambda frame so it fits perfectly for those headphones. The pads do get damaged but they should be replaced every two years anyway or the performance will take a large hit.

I would never, ever let the headphones stand uncovered anywhere unless it was a sealed, airtight cabinet. Dust is their worst enemy and I can't stand filthy headphones. The dust cover works perfectly and that's why my SR-007 still looks mint without a spec of dust on it.

From Kees.

As for taking 1.2B off the desert menu, my wallet needs a transfusion first, and then I still want a better amp for the HE60, plus a balanced amp for my dynamics.

In addtition to the HEV70, I'll have a pair of SRM-1 MK2 each with normal and pro bias to run the HE60, which are STAX terminated by Rudistor and have a pigtail adapter to use STAX plugs on the HEV70.

This is to go along with my SR-Lambda Signature, two pairs of SR-Lambda, and two pairs of SR-5NB Gold Edition...

Given how much the drivers themselves weigh, making a new frame out of wood or metal would be asking for trouble unless you were really efficient in the design. It'd certainly be very difficult to keep the total weight under 1kg. Doesn't mean that it couldn't or shouldn't be done of course.

I always keep mine in their box.

The weight isn't an issue of the headband is properly made. The 4070 is some 630gr without the cable and you can hardly feel them.

Good move. The dust covers are good but it only takes one small particle to make the phones unusable.

He vs. O2/4070 after 20 hours:

HE pros:
musicality
vocals
simple rock
r&b

cons:
Compicated rock
muddiness depending on volume and music

4070 seems more sterile/accurate; however, not as musically involving.

O2 is more technically accurate, but it doesn't take any chances.

Both of the STAX' are more refined, but on some tracks the He will pull you in moreso than either of the STAX'

Of note: When a/b testing, I noticed a tiny bit of of discharge in the left driver. Not sure if that is the correct terminology...

more to follow

I like these descriptions, Snacks.
