I have finally decided to let my main orthodynamic headphones go on the road on a loaner program.
Figured I might as well get the ball rolling on this.
The headphones were crafted by Smeggy and damped by dBel84.
Quoting myself from the ortho thread.
|The last few days I have started to listen again to my original Smeggy made thunderpants, i was quite sure that it was "inferior" to my main Fostex woodies but man was I wrong.
I didn't think I would want to have two different sounding thunderpants, but the originals are genuine rock headphones They are darker than my main phones but they are a welcome change. I am indeed fortunate to own two beautiful custom headphones made by our very own ortho master.
I have really come to the end of the road in terms of my search for headphone nirvana. I find myself spending more time actually listening to music and exploring my music library (which by the way has grown to over 1TB of FLAC, wav, AAC and MP3).
I am considering sending one of my thunderpants on the road as a loaner pair for you ortho peeps in the US, assuming there is interest. These deserve to be heard.
Participant List and their Reviews
5> LFF (Review)
6> n3rdling (Pending Review)
Here is how this will work.
Priority goes to established orthoheads (includes current HE-5 owners) in CONUS.
1>I will ship the headphones out via priority insured mail to the first participant.
2>From there on each participant gets to have the headphones for a week after which he/she will ship it on to the following participant using some form of insured mail which is track-able.
3>I reserve the right to decide who gets to be on the loaner program for obvious reasons.
4>After each participant has had it for a week I would want them to post a brief review of the headphones truthfully.
5> the final participant will ship the headphones back to me naturally.
Note : I request that the participants have a "good" amplifier to drive these to do them justice.
Those interested to get on the loaner program please PM me.
