For sound, I'm still trying to find the time for a good listening session and compare it to my RS2, which probably won't be for another week.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Very nice!

 Are you going to write a review for those?

That's the plan - sometime next week.  I like to let things settle and not jump the gun, especially when new.  I like my sound signature to be balanced, yet refined.  Initial impressions are very positive on those regards.  More to come.....

Brilliantly done. I REALLY liked the grain on that piece of Walnut when I applied the finish. It stands out nicely and has a great pattern to it.

I need to get my hands on some V7 drivers. Haven't heard them yet.

Are the Magnum drivers suitable for G cush builds? I want to build myself a "poor man's GS1000i" (or even "poor man's HP1000") and it could be that Magnum is the key.

The V7 drivers certainly is.

I went on turbulent lab's site and couldn't find the place to order the drivers. It only lists the X drivers but those are discontinued long time ago (are they v5?). Can anyone please point me in the right direction?

Wrong site.  These are symphones drivers.

Wow those are stunning looking headphones. It's great there are so many options now for custom "grados."

Alpha421, have you heard the ypsillon drivers in wood cups yet? If not, do you have any plans to?

Thanks.  Got some positive feedback from the Seattle meet earlier today.  Sadly, I have never heard of any other Grado type drivers. Fleasbaby might be able to as he'll have a chance to listen to my headphone sometime next week.  I believe he has owned or has been exposed to those ypsillon drivers.

Where  can I find it? Googled "Symphones magnum drivers" and the Turbulent site pops up right after head-fi.
