Apologies if this is a cross-post for some, but I can't resist :D

 

A couple of "snow" songs, going out to everyone on east coast of the US, to anyone still locked in winter's grip, and to anyone who just likes snow:

Yeah trust me, if you like a more open sound or if you really like classical, these are by far the best pads. Like I said, I have a bunch of pads from the J$ to the jergs and these are my favorites.

My pleasure.  Hope they work out for you.  Definitely post some impressions.  And look for a PM.

Once my Bifrost finally arrives and I get my shot at it, I'll be thinking of the Q701 pads. The damn storm, my Bifrost won't be falling into my hot hands until Monday.

As much as I understand that the Q701 pads actually might be a benefit in SQ and comfort and a good choice, I am almost as annoyed about this as the Lepai at this point. IDK why, but I am...and most of you all know how much that means

If I wanted to be nagged so much, I'd get married. Oh yeah, I am. If she see's this I'll get nagged even more.

Rule #x: Never let your wife buy a snow blower without you being present, otherwise she'll come home with e Sherman Tank.

Leaping Lepai's I thought you have an Emotiva.

I have a quite big problem! The jack connector on a cable is stuck in a locking neutrik panel mount jack thinige!

 

Have no idea what to do now.

 

EDIT: Got it out using quite an amount of force. God, this is annoying.

 

It seems that the locking (or rather un-locking) mechanism doesn't work. Better get myself another one..

I have no idea what that means.  I mean, I know you bitch about that amp a lot, and perhaps with good reason.  I know nothing about it.  But why would $35/pair (shipped) pads you've never tried make you feel the same way?  Anyway, whatever.  That makes me wanna get up on my soapbox.  Good morning  :darthsmile:  <--- yeah, those are my red-grilled, Q701-pad-sportin' HE-500s

 

Q701 pads for everyone!!!

 

(brave enough to give 'em a whirl ;-)

You are getting overexcited, it's time to go out in the snow, play and cool off. :D

I have some friends for you to play with. These are some of my dependants that the IRS won't let me claim.

just do like me...try not to get annoyed to much..let them enjoy their game... if they want it..let them.. u cant stop it...its like people saying a 200usd amp is the only way to go for ur he500 on this thread.....i had ur feeling couple of times already about certain products mentioned here who are a supposedly 'GODSENT' for the he500 according to some..well..i let hem believe it..but i know there is something better around the corner they dont know off... thats why i am so cool lately...no outbursts anymore... and i found out that the truth comes out sooner or later..and in my case as an example the 337 is at last starting to get the attention and admiration that it deserves..even from a certain he6 owner who uses the 337 to drive it...

so dont worry..get into the snow....throw some snowballs (if u have snow ofcourse) and relax...and this is coming form a guy who had very intense debates with some of u guys in the past... :beerchug:

 

as long we respect each other in our opinions....its okay..even if someone says u have to put ur headphone into the fridge to make them sound less warm..let them... they will have a frozen head..not u :D
