I f***ing love you! THANK YOU! You can't imagine the lengths I've been through to try and accomplish this result. I really hope the resulting sound from these is just as good as the Fa-003 earpads compressed at an angle or perhaps better. Thanks again!!!

A headphone that I guess could be called Yoga's successor for fa-003 / HM5 / cd-880 is now available. Cd-2500 25th anniversary headphones marketed as  Feenix aria gaming headphones. Fullsize woodies with 50mm driver. http://www.head-fi.org/t/706668/feenix-aria-studio-grade-gaming-headphones

This is weird guys. I love my headphone. With every source and amp till now.Worked superbly.

But recently I use it with a Asrock Purity Audio motherboard with its onboard amp....and I can hear the cavernous/echo sound.

 

Not sure where t comes from. Any solution for this?

Quite shocking. Does this problem occur when the bass gets boosted tomuch by the amp.

I still don't understand this problem. How is it possible for a headphone to have "echo"?

Well, you said it yourself; it's the amp. What i think you mean to say is that it sounds more hollow. This effect can also happen and is less/more obvious depending on the earpads. Every little nuance makes a difference. Dampening the headphones might also help using some polyphil on the insides of the cups. There's possibly some earpads which are going to be manufactured which would improve on many aspects, this being one of them. The amp might just reveal some of the deficiencies in the current configuration of the headphones because of the frequency response and/or transient response. In any case, I'll update you when and if I can on the reality of those earpads I mentioned.

Same headphone in another guise in the UK at a really good price:

I have the M2000 and an M1000 on the way.

 

Very impressed with the M2000 and looking forward to compare it with the M1000.

 

One thing about the lead .....

 

Is there a supplier of a (built) cable for these other than the standard lead? I'm looking for a 4 foot lead but try finding a stereo mini at one end with two monos on the other end. No one seems to stock leads for this and the standard cable is too long for portable use.

Are the plugs pushed FIRMLY home? You can get this if the plugs are halfway inserted.

Ooops ... sorry. I just tried it and it works here.

 

The link is for Studiospares.com

 

It's a UK based place, selling the M1000 at £64.99 which is cheap if it's the same headphone under their own name, which is what I suspect.

Not that cheap...

 

Studiospares £64,99+£4,80 shipping = £69,79

Jaycar £27.25 + £5,00 shipping = £32,25

 

http://jaycar.co.uk/productView.asp?ID=AA2065&w=pro+monitor+headphones&form=KEYWORD

 

Jaycar ships from australia so it takes a while, but the price is unmatched if not in hurry.

post #2985 of 2998

What a good deal that is. Makes you question why anyone would bother with the Fischer Audio version then doesn't it? Didn't know about the Jaycar version but I think the Fischer goes at a lot more than both. Presumably the same drivers?

 

The FA-003 is about £115 in UK.
