Can anyone identify the brand/model he is holding ? (FYI - this was the very first popular electronic music album, 1968):
Here's something to drool over: my MIB Sony DR-Z6 that I picked up from a fellow member.
Unboxing video: this is practically porn.
Complete packaging with manual and protective foam.
Metal inner cups.
Extremely strong clip design for the headband cushion.
Amazingly soft earpads (far better than the Z5) and the pretty palladium-coated driver membrane.
The headphones folded flat.
Absolutely not I messaged that seller with another link to a Z6 on ebay comparing his asking price to the other, he hasn't responded and surely flipping for the fact that it is a rare headphone, nothing more.
This ebayer is ridiculous, I've looked at some of his other stuff, and he's selling used items at higher prices than brand new (for some things that are still available).
Tell me something I don't know...
On a side note, a close friend is actually sending me a Z7 for a side-by-side comparison of all three. Plenty of pictures will be accompanying that, so keep your eyes peeled.
Nice man, took you long enough!
EUR 799,99 is a steal, these eat the Grado HP1 for breakfast, and then some!
The HP looks like a Koss 4AA with a modified headband. But I could be wrong. I took some time on Wikiphonia looking for something similar. They could just be some DIY HP that a production crew threw together.
Ahhh Wendy Carlos. ( well Wendy AFTER that picture was taken anyhow.) I had a discussion a while ago about the album cover there, think maybe I thought it was a Lafayette but there may have been discussion from Mr W i was chatting with that they were early AKG possibly. I'd have to dig deep through a ton of PM's but the answer may lay hidden in there.
Great album this one, I have two on vinyl. See if i can find that sometime soonish .
I've seen a few of those on fleabay before. Or at least I think I did.
I don't see it anymore---don't feel like digging through the listings--- but anyhow, here's one with the same headband:
and as far as the cups go, these are more like it.
I think the one I saw before might be a superex but I forgot.
