Those pads look better than the original Annie pads. Looks like comfort would be boosted too.

I'm sending the MA900 out tomorrow, Change gets it first as he lives like 40 minutes from me, but won't meet me halfway. tongue.gif

I don't keep my private messages, so I do need the addresses again for the others.

Hahaha lol if I didn't spend so much on audio I'd probably have my license back and a car by now... :tongue_smile:

 

Bravo to you, Evs, for putting your transportation priorities first... lol

It's hard to get the lighting just right to show the shape.  The black velour/velvety texture makes it very hard to photograph.  The pads are about 24mm tall measuring from the outside plastic edge.  Chicolom's pictures show the original/older Annie pads to be noticeably shorter, although if that's from prolonged use/compression, I don't know for sure, and that's assuming mine are in fact different and are similar to the 712Pro pads.

 

You can post pretty big pictures in-thread.  I post a lot bigger than 800x600. 

 

Anyways, those DO look like the K712 pads.

 

Thanks for the confirmation pics.

I think my iCan might be dying.  I can't get it to power on and it just flickers the power lights when I plug it in.

 

It's well under warranty, so it won't be an issue getting it fixed/replaced, but it's still a bummer.

 

:(:(:(

 

iFi says the power supply is probably bad...

I'm amazed the iFi support is actually responding to my emails about it this late/early at night/morning!

It looks like the PC 360s are $170 on Amazon. I would need a sound card to go with them. I currently do not own any high quality headphones or headsets, just a few cheap communications headsets. This would be a first for me. Is this worth jumping on or should I look for something in the $100 range?

0verlord, if you're in need of a headset. The PC360 is the best I can recommend. If you dont need a mic, I would definitely recommend the Sony MA900 instead which sells for $10 more on Amazon most of the time, or even less on Ebay, compared to the pc360.

Change, the MA900 is on its way. USPS.

Sometimes a used HD558 sells for just over $100 on Amazon or eBay.

You can get an add-on mic for $8-$15

 

Asus Xonar DG (PCI) sound card, $27.99

The iCan gain switch is pretty good to have IMO, since I am personally always under 9 'oclock with my HE-500, mostly around 8.

post #16453 of 30649

The mic is definitely essential for me. I guess next question, sound card to go with it? Do I need to be looking at amps or other things like that?

The PC360 is easy to drive. Just the soundcard will do.

I will begin looking at sound cards. I imagine I will need something with Dolby Headphone. Any idea where I should start looking?
