Why the name "Thunderpant"?

A little bit of rumble in the jungle?

As i recall, we were chatting late one night about your newest creation and i was questioning you about its low frequency sonic abilities and trying to relate it to something that was tangible at that moment time.. lol

Looks amazing and probably sounds amazing! Wish I was smart enough to make a headphone myself.

So how do these sound as a portable rig with a Fostex HP-P1 or a portable amp in comparison to a custom IEM like the JH16 or the Westone ES5?

I will compare it to my ES5 and UE18 pro when I get it. Stay tuned.

Thanks Jude for helping bring attention to this fantastic product.

 

I first heard the Thunderpants at a Head-Fi meet and got to listen to most of the planars mentioned in the review.

 

I really liked all of them, but putting on the Thunderpants was a draw dropping experience. What blew me away the most was the vocals. These were the first headphones I had heard that really got them perfect for my preferences. Of course the rest of the frequency range is outstanding as well. I wasn't expecting to get new headphones when I went to the meet but I had to buy a pair after hearing them and they remain one of my favorite high end products ever, with decades of being involved in the hobby.

I hope Jude understands the additional demands he put on Smeggy.  Business will either boom or the wait time will increase.  Great vid as usual...

Yes, that's what I'm afraid of, I think I will order the kit and do it myself.

its amazing what people can improve!

Makes me wonder if anyone can turn the Beats into something listenable...

just shave off the name and let an audiophile listen to it blind.  Instantly becomes more balanced throughout the spectrum, better transients, less bloat.
