Instead of posting about it here, you probably should post them in the "For Sale" section.
I have a problem. The headband of my fa011 is defect. The plastic caps are coming apart. I used some tape to keep the clips together but it doesn't look nice. Does anyone know how to repair the headband?
Really digging these after 1+ year of use, bought Hifiman HE-400 and while they have most of my attention these days I can't make myself to sell 011s since it was so hard to find and ship them to Europe. I'd rather keep these in good condition because they look nice and occasionally I keep going back to them.
Picked a pr up in minty cond for cheap today, gotta say they are a nice fun sounding unit.
looking forward to trying a few mods.
Pads gotta go......and i may build my own new passive xover and a few external mesh and can mods.
Just picked up a FA-011 from another Head Fi'er and I'm trying to determine which version it is.
It has very dark cups, brass plates, coiled cable and very irregular cut holes for the driver.
Listened to it a little from my Crack and sounds very fun! Should be great for Electronic music.
Just got my FA-011s today from JDSLabs... I need to get a repair for my c421s and my son took over my Denon AH 2000s...
I've never had headphones that weren't completely closed cans... these are open. I hear people talk about soundstage a lot. I assume this is the feeling you get when listening where the sound feels "spread"out - wider sound... I like it. Is this the diff between open and closed cans? You feel like the music is coming from all around you?
Anyways - apparently the side part of that is that there is a lot of leakage since the headphones aren't closed. Not a big deal for me but surprised me.
My Denon's weren't balanced - more bass... These are the same. I'm listening to them hooked into my mac. Takes a lot of power to push them - can't wait to hook my c421's up to them... Was driving them earlier with my Cmoybb's. Was cleaner coming out of my mac.
