Ahh yes, you do have to journey to very specific dungeons to be able to farm those drops. The main problem is getting past Portal Master USPS or his companions Fedex and UPS.......lots of gold needed........

 

Luckily though, at least the crafting patterns are easy to get hold of.

I wonder exactly how long we could draw out this $DEITY awful analogy...

 

Maybe I should just be content with my modded T50RPs for now and just save, save, save.

I would like to see, and to have hybrid headphones with multi drivers and to be more specific, 2 way driver hps with a ribbon tweeter and a dynamic driver. A 3 way hps can work as well, with ortho mids + ribbon tweeters + dynamic driver for the bass.

Second, I'd love to see ribbons and field coils. Yeah, the field coils might be on the heavy side and would need a separate power supply, but field coils can do things permanent magnets can't.

Third, a return to the K-1000 style earspeaker. If AKG doesn't do it, someone else should. Nothing gives a better soundstage.


Random question. Did you ever get to try one of the Headphile K1000/CD3000 frankensteinphones? I'm assuming the K1000's drivers needed a good amount of bass to have any bass at the suspended state they were at, so fact that the thing exists makes me rather sad because they may not even sound that great when confined like that.

 

And I know Punnisher was attempting to make a pair of K1000esque headphones, and got them to work pretty decently with EQ and DT770 drivers, so if a DIYer could make one, any company should. I like where Sony was going with the PFR-V1, but the contraption is kinda creepy to wear.

 

I'd love for a company to make a replacement for the now exhausted SFI tweeters.

Having a full size headphone with 2-3 drivers in it would pretty much automatically result in an interesting visual design, so I'm all for someone doing that.

When I'm thinking about 2-3 drivers the first visual design that jump in to my head is the Peerless MB hps, here is more info: http://wiki.faust3d.com/wiki/index.php?title=PMB_/_MB_Quart.

...and this was in the early 80's, I hope in 2012 the hps companies will have a newer visual design to offer, but I'll be okay with the old design with maybe some new improvements. floatsmile.png

Only the QP85DA had two drivers, and they're too freakin rare and lack reviews to garner any type of accurate sound assumption. The single drivered QP85 seriously lacks in bass apparently, and I still doubt the DA fixes that much.

The base foundation is already there, just needs to upgrade the components with the today technology.

A sound capsule.  The privacy of headphones and the best of speakers.

If a headphone could combine the kick and punch of dynamic drivers, with the magic of my VLD-12 ribbons, they'd be wonderful.

But I fear that the air pressure from the dynamic driver or even it's vibrations would interfere with the ultra light ribbon.

A fully open design like the K1000 or Float-ish designs might be able to bypass this problem.

Well, I did make a thread about some interesting chairs, but got no feedback on that: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/557316/musical-chairs-audio-gear-not-the-game

Something like that.  But closed, like an isolation chamber.  It would look like an 8 foot tall egg with perfect acoustics, and pitch black inside.  Components would be modular.
