K-1000 are at home for now one week. The WE allowed me to setup the required means to test then. I now can put them either on DIYParadize Charlize2 with SLA (without 8 Ohms resistor for the moment), or SOHA II. On SOHA, I cal also use AKG-701 or Sen HD540. Both are on the same DAC : DIYParadise USB Monica.
So now, I can start listening Music !
I would like to know what is the general belief here about the swiveling earphones :
- must it be tuned to 0.1° to get the main part of the headphone perf ?
- or "approx correct angle" is OK ?
For now, what I do : I open earspeakers, and then close them slowly. I stop at the point where :
- music starts to come neerer from "in the head",
- sound starts to have more density.
Does it looks OK ? Is there an optimal tuning procedure ? A specific effect to look to ?
First feedback :
For years I have used some open bafles speakers with Supravox 215 and JBL 2505. No bass but : lively music, speed, no box sound, details, openess...
With AKG, I feel the same but with very flat response, no coloration. Every detail is here. I won't say that those headphones give sexy/warm music. But so natural... K701+SOHA II looks a bit more "muddy" than K-1000+Charlize2.
