I really do think that the 840s can get you most of the way there.

I will answer in complete honesty....

 

My Paradox headphones (mod'd Fostex T50RP's) kick the living hell out of the FA-003. To me, it's like comparing iBuds to the FA-003...no contest.

 

EDIT: To be fair...it is comparing apples to oranges...dynamic driver v. ortho....

Stop tempting me people....I'm poor!!!

^Just looking at the price scares the hell out of me biggrin.gif

 

I'm sticking to my USD0.40 pads * 2 L3000.gifbiggrin.gif

Same here... Flysweep.:

 

Smeggy wrote today that he has "a strip of foam" under the stock pads. If you check out the thunderpants you'll see how stock pads are raised... I think it's just acoustic foam - which is what we've done to our stock pads.

 

How close are 840's to O2/.... Mabe I'll pick up some 840's... Just can't justify O2 pads right now.

Take 'em with a grain of salt. Not comparable to other graphs, especially those not generated by me. T50RPs shifted up 10db on first graph. Second graph: overlay normalized to midrange (500 to 2k) and compressed db range to better show differences.

 

By request(s):

The waterfall plots are available via my sig. Make sure you click on the "mods" portion for the T50RP CSD.

 

Actually I'm just going to run a new set and put them here.

Some CLOSE-UP views from 1khz onward and ending at 3ms. db range is down to -36.

 

EDIT: these are the modded T50RPs.

One thing I don't think has been commented on here is just how good these cans sound at low volume. Is this typical of all orthodynamics?

post #2770 of 10678

From what I understand, yep, typical of ortho. (LCD-2 and HE-5LE).

 

post #2771 of 10678

OK, that waterfall plot is scary.  The T50 has a faster and cleaner decay in the midrange...  Wow.  That must be why I keep picking these up first.

Thanks man!

 

And here I thought you were just cutting up random things in your girlfriend's closet.

 

How smooth are the mids on your setup?

So... uh... are these officially FOTM status?

post #2775 of 10678

Nice, Purrin.  Looking forward to getting mine tested.  I'll probably bring two flavors of Rastapants.
