I'm a good shot, excellent grouping with a pistol or rifle. I can skeet shoot (Shotgun) as well.

OK then, let's play some darts.

 

Glad you got it.  Get rid of Norton and use MS or avast!  Norton... pih!

 

Enjoy your new toy :darthsmile:

Here's the big update. So ten minutes late, my doorbell rings and I get a package. Hold it, that's not the FedEx man, WTF it's UPS. Damn it my shoes came early. Grrrh,....push that left eye back into the socket...ahhh that's better. Another half hour transpires and then ding ding the thing has arrived. I unpack it, looks nice and them my cellphone crashes and does not reboot. Flipp'in POS dropped dead on me, at a moment that was not convenient to my Bifrost. So before running off to Verizon to get that sorted out, let's give the Bifrost a spin. I download the WIndoze drivers from Schiit's web site. I go to unzip it so I can install it and Norton AV takes a Schitt. It appears that one of the DLL's from Schiit hurt Norton's feelings and it got quarantined. Can anything got to Schiit today? I email Schiit about it, they respond very quickly, they say nothing was wrong. So I install it, the warning from Norton was Medium Severity, Medium Risk about cmelv.dll being WS.Reputation.1 whatever that is. Microsoft's virus scanner had no beef with it, then again Microsoft can't get their Schiit straight. So the first test is

Samsung i7 laptop--->Bifrost--->Vali--->HD600's and it worked, As Nimzerz might say, "that was some good Schiit."

Ok, now I can go to Verizon and get my Galaxy S3 sorted out.

---- To be Continued ----- Yes there's more to the story...


That Norton error was explained to me as being triggered simply by the small number of people installing a particular piece of software.  There's nothing "suspicious" about it, other than it isn't "popular"...   How stupid is that?   The go around is just to turn Norton off and reinstall it.  Glad your package finally arrived.

For the latecomers/unaware, I am still accepting orders for a Robinette v3 box. See details in the Robinette Box thread :)

Soon, I go upstairs and drag the Bifrost to it's home. There it will play with the Asgard 2 and HE-500's.

All I had to do was remove the files from quarantine and just run the install, easy peasy.

Part II is coming up.

No I mean the 500's. I really like the smooth treble compared to my HE-400's.

Ah that makes more sense :)

 

And yeah, definitely has very smooth treble in stock form, and even more-so when modded with open grills and Jerg/Modulor-pads. The pads take it 2 steps further and makes it all so coherent it's unbelievable.

Received my HE-500 today, initial impressions are positive. Coming from dynamic driver type headphones i notice a more fluid, grain free, rich and smooth presentation. None of the frequencies seem to be emphasized which lends to a linear, cohesive and natural type of sound. Very pleased so far smily_headphones1.gif

Grain free is what I noticed first as well, as well as BIG sound, whatever that means. It can only get better from here my friend, congratulations. WELCOME TO THE CLUB!!!

STAHP going on and on about your special jergulor pads!!

 

I kid ;)  They do really improve on the sound, even if you make them yourself.  I'd love to see Ryan's handiwork.
