They got pretty nice bass response IMO -  I got pretty same Technics:

They are being driven with a Moon 1-3 integrated amp. I'm really tempted to get a Stax 2050 basic headset

Now that I have an amplifier that's powerful enough, the SS-100s are sounding really sweet too.

I've been wanting to hear a pair of NAD orthos for a loooong time.

They are worth the wait.

Picked up this set of Pioneer SE-405s about two weeks ago at an estate sale. The volume controls were scratchy and temperamental and the cable was a coiled kind with a huge 6.3mm plug, so I went ahead and recabled them with Mogami 2893 and a Neutrik 3.5mm plug and did not wire up the potentiometers. They are in awesome condition otherwise, and I'm very pleased with them.

Those K1s blew my mind! I've never seen a headphone quite like that before... But I can only imagine the pain of getting hair caught in there or scraping your scalp with it!

 

I should really take some glamour photos of my SE-L40.

Any idea what an average or reasonable price is on a good pair?

post #135 of 1228

^^Hard to answer that since there are many different sounding versions of NAD RP18.

But I do believe that these belong to the top tier of vintage orthos & they deserve a decent asking price.

FWIW , I find these to be the best headphones I have heard & a tier above the best dynamic cans I have owned/ heard( HD580, HD650 , DT880 600ohm).
