Nope, wasn't me. I bought them from Ricardo, a ebay-like website from Switzerland :)
Brush aside your AKG k280's and make way for the PALLADIUM 946/893 !!
Now with a built-in 2-Way-System!
Two identical drivers both tuned differently.
The lower driver has it's own smaller enclosure.
This emphasises higher frequencies, while the upper driver emphasises lower frequencies.
The headband is in a rotten state, but the rest is almost perfect.
Now just bask in it's dark-brown plastic and aluminium trimmed excellence... which is basically all this headphone is good for.
I disassembled the ATH-6 and cleaned every part, including the sliders and cup pivots. Everything is smooth as butter. The set is actually in far better shape than I initially thought it was. I can't post pictures yet though, that'll have to wait until Tuesday.
Now... I was able to fashion a simple adapter from a spare headphone cable. I plugged these into my trusty Dragonfly and they made noise... sort of. At such an incredibly low volume that I couldnt discern anything. After that failure I modified the adapter and connected it to my speaker taps. I got just enough volume to say a bit about it.
It seems to be bass-centric, oddly enough. Detailed, relatively flat presentation, not much for treble. My set appears to have a channel imbalance (though it might be the crappy converter) and I can see why it drives people crazy. Is it at all possible to fix a malfunctioning set?
It's an interesting headphone to say the least.
You need a proper energizer adaptor to fix all underlined. As with imbalance hard to tell until you get a matching adaptor fed off a sufficiently power/integrated amplifier.
