If you buy one of these, also buy a Sennheiser HD212. The headband can be adapted to replace the horrible TakeT one.

 

 


I have no doubts that you are correct, but buying a 3,000 dollar headphone and sticking the cups on a comparatively flimsy headband probably worth in all reality about a dollar, doesn't sit well with me at all.  Any other headbands work with the TakeT?

Guys, did you hear? The new supertweeter (tm) allows you to hear supersonic frequencies THROUGH YOUR FACE!

 

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH INFORMATION IS LOST BY NOT LISTENING TO MUSIC THROUGH YOUR FACE? 

 

ALL OF IT.

 

Buy yours today.

One thing to consider with the supertweeter is that most music probably doesn't contain frequencies that high. And most sources/amps probably don't really focus on the supersonic frequency range, either

The other is that YOU CAN'T HEAR IT.

 

EDIT: I wonder if it actually puts out any sound waves at all, has anyone tested it at all?

Well of course you can't, you aren't supposed to hear it. You're supposed absorb it via osmosis.

And even if you could hear it you'd fist need a hi-rez recording that was recorded with mics capable of recording such high frequencies and then they need to be recoding instruments that actually make such high frequencies.

 

All of those thing do actually exist but they aren't terribly common even on their own.  When you combine all those requirements it will work out to a minuscule percentage of all music available today.

 

I suppose if you already know you listen to stuff like that...

I would keep it in my pocket...

Keep it coming Jude! Mainstream or not, all of the episodes are super cool and informative. Looking forward to the next episode, as always.

I hope the next episode is a Thunderpants episode. ^^

to be fair, the TakeT headband looks pretty crappy too

Jude, I'd love a comparison of high end DACs

 

Compare a under $1000 DAC to an over $8000 DAC

 

:D

Ooo I'd like to see a DAC rundown as well--looking for a new one to pair with the Phonitor. :-D

Ron Popeil is selling audio now? "If you call now, when you purchase H2+, we'll give you not 1, but 2 BPP Portable Supertweeters." No offense, but that headphone looks like a cross between a DT150 (without it's durability, it looks loose and flabby, those loops look like twist ties covered with electrical tape) and a K1000 (but without the sound quality, a $3000 headphone that needs to be eq'd to sound decent?).

Is the TR2, just a switchbox ?

In that case, it's waaay too expensive.

Hifiman has a similar box, for $99.

This is a place mainly for enthusiasts so covering these types of product is what Head-Fi TV should be all about, as the other low priced products are featured everywhere else.

 

If I could improve these videos I would try to bringing in more products and do some comparisons. That would really help the average person and consumer here IMO.
 

For exampel I would like to see a lineup of 5-10 DAC's in various price points, or talking about the different top custom IEM in some upcomming episodes.
