IC: Winnipeg meet? - Page 116

post #1726 of 1922

Let's do one in October after Bear gets his SR-009.  I'll bring the burgers.  :smile:

That reminds me I need to see what the status is on the order. Got the WEE it sounds pretty good with the taboo driving it. Might not be the power it needs but still pretty good. We'll see what you guys think.

Anyone interested in HE 500 with jergulor pads or HD650s? I might also just load a tub with a bunch of miscellaneous stuff, too. Seeing as how someone mentioned wanting to get a cheap entry level portable. Truck loading is easy now that I have a cart.

Pfft, I kinda want the Senns but I need to sell some of my stuff first :rolleyes:

(I want a better balanced dac too... but I'm getting ahead of myself)

Ugh, I noticed some signs this afternoon saying Chancellor will be closed next weekend (which is one of the main entrances into the University). If so, then coming in from the north side is the best route: Take Pembina Hwy southbound then curving onto University Crescent just after Bishop.

 

Or just look at a map... or call me. Whichever works.

Anyone have a cheap headset they want to get rid of? Something for my parents to occasionally skype with.

post #1731 of 1922
I will look when I get home. I think I have a set or two.
post #1732 of 1922

Nathan, do you need meat for the bbq or perhaps snacks that I should bring? Anything in particular?

post #1733 of 1922

Currently in my freezer are some homemade burger patties, a few smokies, a bunch of hot dog buns (no burger buns though). I've got piles of soft drinks somewhere too. Bring whatever you feel like.

If there will be any meeting I would come for sure. I'm going to buy studio cans and I would like to hear some and talk with people about them if it is possible.

post #1735 of 1922

Sure. Why don't you tell us a little about yourself? What sort of gear do you currently have?

post #1736 of 1922

Well, to be honest right now I don't have too much gear.

Some time ago I was producing psytrance in home enviroment and in a small studio. I was using Alesis M1 Active as my main monitor but no headphones at all. I was never a big fan of headphones so I've never had any good ones. The best I've had were Sennheisers HD280, but I sold them fast after some listening (quite bad sounding in my personal opinion). Now I've had 3 years of absence from recording and I would like to come back to it. Right now I am looking for a good sounding but affordable cans for home studio and outdoor use.

The Shure SRH 840 might be just what you are looking for!

I was looking at ATH-M50X recently. I like them, have a lot of power and punch, and they're clean overall, but I am not sure about their highs. I am a "crystal-clear" lover and I feel the lack of high's here. And the lows are a little bit too charged.

I was also listening to Grado SR80i, but of course because their open, they would be inappropriate for outdoor use. Their sound is almost perfect for me, almost because the lows are quite calm. Maybe after burning them a little the lows will be more juicy, and then they will be perfect.

Concerning Shure, well, I was never a fan of this brand, but I will check them. But my budget is around $150. Aren't these Shure's more expensive?

The 840 was the first headphone that I really liked, except for the stupidly heavy headband. The Canadian prices are >$200 though. US sale prices bring it down to $120-ish. Sonically I preferred the 840 over the M50, but couldn't get over the comfort issue.

 

One of my first big reviews on head-fi... www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/512762

 

The Grado SR80 was my very first introduction to head-fi. I thought it was great at first... until I started listening to more options. I'm really not a fan of Grados these days (though I have a somewhat macabre desire to keep trying them). I've owned or heard 60/80/MS1/125/225/325/HF1/HF2, and have modded more than a fair share of them as well.

 

If you're looking for something with a bit of that Grado top end but in a closed form... the Sony V6/7506 might be up your alley and it's in your budget (also in stock at L&M).

If you like calmer lows you might like the AKG k702's I'll be bringing.
