Long story coming your way. FWIW, my first used pair were fine until things went haywire in The Lab. I was the third owner, but the claims were that they were not used much; less than a hundred hours total; maybe less than 50. The second pair were new, and after less than four months the left driver went wonky. A couple interesting notes about warranty and build quality. The used pair were from the time they offered a three-year warranty. Said so right in the booklet. But the adjustment action on the yoke/gimbals was uneven and a bit sticky, esp. on one side. The new pair had the one-year warranty, but build-wise were superior. Of course, the wonky driver rendered all that moot.
Almost time to apply some felt, swap out some grills, and do a little preliminary A/Bing with the HE-560s
Yes we want to find out what you think of the two. Match those volumes carefully.
You think you could make a custom pair of pads that would fit Ross Perot?
