I'd like to place an order for 12 Nozomi Sasakis please.

If I had Nozomi-chan with me, I'd be holidaying with her in Bora Bora instead of doing a head-fi meet in Perth wink.gif!!!

On a more serious & sad note, my TH900 didn't survive the plane trip despite hand-carry!! The left earcup broke off the headband at the swivel. Looks like you guys will need to hold the cup over your ear but it'll affect the sound signature I'm sure.

Times like these I'm so glad I met the Fostex chaps on Saturday. Hopefully they'll remember me when I get back to Tokyo to get it fixed.

!!!eek.gif!!! Your $2000 headphone got damaged! Sounds like it might need an Audeze travel box. I wonder how fragile it is... I'm less concerned about us listening to it and more on you getting it replaced/repaired on warranty. Hope it works out alright!

Hello there guys,

 

Just found this thread & am about to be knocked of my internet access at the public library. Would like to attend another meet but my quick impression here is that it is mainly portables that will be here at the meet and am only interested in not portable systems at the moment.

Apologies if I cannot get to you again today.

 

701

Hi guys,

 

No reply so I guess no one keeping tabs here at the moment.

 

I have no issue contributing to costs for room hire for this. Most any day is suitable for me.

 

Can bring Rega Apollo CD, Yaquin CD1 tube buffer, AKG K701, Audeze LCD 2, Sennheiser HD650, Corda Headamp 2 MkII, Matrix M Stage.

Sorry 701, didn't mean to ignore you. There's actually a private PM group post of those that's going to meet. We're going to meet on Saturday instead.

 

@temporaryname, as you own the PM, could you modify to add 701 to the private PM so that he/she knows where we're meeting?

 

BTW, between S'pore to Perth, now there's a scratch on the housing too. That one worries me more than the broken swivel 'cos the broken swivel can just be replaced. The scratch on that housing...ohhh. Anyhow, you guys still can listen to it my manually holding the left cup to your ear however it's not going to be a true representation of the sound anymore - soundstage will change, even the bass (depending on how hard you hold it on your ear, etc.).

 

Luckily I met the Fostex guys on Saturday at the Tokyo Portable Show. It's still under warranty (for the swivel at least, not the scratch) and I hope they remember me when I get back to Tokyo at the end of the month.

Unfortunately I didn't. Bummer! I should have considered it.

 

My only worry about my 009's is my wife getting pissed off at me and throwing them into the bin, or selling it and keeping the cash!

Thanks Anakchan. Never thought that I would drool over a set of universals but those fit ears were pretty special.
post #117 of 277
Oh yes, those FitEars do have some magic smily_headphones1.gif. They're my favourite UIEMs for sure.

For a low key and quickly organized mini meet, it was overflowing with toys. We barely had enough room to put down our coffees. A special thanks again to Anakchan for bringing so much gear.
