The stand is much smaller than my head, so I figure i'd stretch them more wearing them than leaving them in the stand.

 

Good point.  Any worry about the ear pads or auto-adjusting tension bands wearing out prematurely?

Well I still have them both but I do prefer the K712 at the moment, they're so well-rounded. I did compare them a bit in this review.

 

Glad to hear that.  I've got a pair on the way.  Nice review BTW.

Not really. I'm pretty loosey-goosey with my head-fi gear.

I figure the pads are better off with even pressure on a flat surface vs uneven pressure around my ears and lumpy head. Unlike my ATH-M50's, the AKG 702s don't fold so are prone to the bottom of the pads touching at a specific point near the bottom. Could theoretically cause a premature pressure point there. If you look at how most headphones are packaged before purchase in their manufacturer's boxes, the pads are stored against a flat, even surface and a gap between the pass to keep them from touching. Check out those headphone inbox in videos to see if my memory serves me correct.

It's quite wasteful, but the laws protecting unicorns are quite archaic so it's not a problem. No price is too high for audio nirvana.

Some words of wisdom right there. :beerchug:

That looks good enough to be in a glossy hifi mag! Very smart.

Beer? That's a cider there, friend. I'm not a beer drinker, but Woodchuck on the other hand...

 

Have you tried their new PUMPKIN for the holidays? It's 7% (so it hits hard) and tastes pretty awesome. :)

 

Had 4 last night, myself.

It's all next to my couch (that reclines) on an end table. It's comfy.

Good call.

EDIT: They did a flavor that was called Autumn or something that comes in the boxes as the seasonal brew, but I didn't like it. It was too sweet (like a Mike's Hard) and I couldn't stomach it. However, the Pumpkin gets the sweetness right while still tasting similar.

Photo 4 of 6

 

Nuforce uDac-3, Sansa Clip and Fuze, Pioneer HDJ-2000, Munitio Pro40, and somewhere just above the image a modded T50rp which was probably the best pairing with the udac3.

Yesterday my audio rack become two shelves higher... though two shelves are empty at the moment, I bought this two shelves because the model of my rack is out of production, so if I will need more shelves in future then I probably won't be able to buy them... actually you can see that eventually I had to buy shelves with different color compared to what I had, it's because I were not able to find shelves with "my" color anywhere... hope the rack with shelves of different color doesn't look too ugly :confused: ...

 

 

Also have to mention that since my last post into this thread I had a few upgrades, but they are mostly not visible on photos of my rig, that because this upgrades is cables - Shunyata Research Anaconda ZTron power cord (can be seen inserted in WES on 2nd photo above) and XLR interconnect cables... it may seem a small upgrade for someone, but for me in terms of sound it's not small at all... but the price on this cables is really scary, it was not easy for me to decide to buy them, both financially and morally...

DragonOwen,

 

I would say switch your rack positions to match the color of your gear, black ones on the bottom and silver/grey ones on top of them. That power cord looks like cords scientists use on cold-fusion experiments lol :p

 

Nice system mate, hope I'd get there eventually.

Black and silver matches the gear and the wallpaper. smily_headphones1.gif

It's not possible to place black on the bottom, because this model of rack has base 2 shelves module that has to be on the bottom (this module has solid frame), my base module is silver...

 

Thanks!

Just did something a bit hilarious with my rack... put my modded Lenco 75 on the bottom shelf of my rack... I know it's maybe a "bad tone" to do this, but in my case it have some pros and cons:

 

pros:

+ I freed up space on the dresser where previously stationed Lenco

+ Now I can use Interconnects that has normal length and quality, rather than the 3-meter cheap DIY that I used earlier (because of the distance from the Lenco and phono stage from amplifier)

+ Lenco and phono now powered by power regenerator

 

cons:

- There is a lot of dust on bottom shelf

- It's not easy and comfortable to do something with Lenco when it's located on bottom shelf

- Maybe that is not very good for sound when Lenco when it's located on bottom shelf

- It's looks a bit "not right" ...

 

So a few photos of what I have now (the small box on the second (from above) shelf is phono stage):
