Before going to the annual Thai DIY Audio meeting, I had to cover up the back side of the phones so that people would not stick their fingers inside and get a shock. I looked around the house and finally decided to use my wife's stocking. I actually heard a few people really like to use the stocking as a damping cloth on their ESL.
I took with me the new phones, the oval shape ones, and KGSSHV to the meeting. Many people had never heard of electrostatic headphones before and were very interested to come and try my phones.
Guess what? About eight out of ten people who tried the phones like the sound of the new ones better. However, they all complained that they looked very ugly. I had to show them how JF looked and they all laughed.
Let me show you how crazy Thai DIYers can be. We have a WE212 SE amp at the meeting. The tubes are huge.
The 845 tubes in front of WE212 look so small in comparison.
