Thanks, Wayne...throwing a ton of gear into 2 bags, should be fun.

The only meet I've been to was with nick n and his huge duffle bag of awesome gear. 100 cups of coffee and 20 headphones later, and I was twitching but good lol!

Heads up for Australian members;

Yamaha HPH-200 $72 AUD.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BRAND-NEW-Yamaha-HPH-200-Headphones-Black-/281295654097?pt=AU_DJ_Gear_Lighting_Equipment&hash=item417e870cd1&_uhb=1

I picked up another pair, as for the price they're well worth it.

I believe the seller also has white pairs in his other items.

Just took the AT IM70 off the burn in station...listening to hi-rez Greg Porter download, just a short time I have them on, but they really do rock. Bass bounces (AT can do bass RIGHT), nice mid/vocal presence, highs maybe recessed (sometimes takes me a while to get a handle on the sound of highs from my headphones), though I feel like cymbals should be more present on a jazz track, gotta hear them riiiiiiiide. Using Comply tips (generally a sign I had a hard time getting a good fit/seal), they may have to do with the highs, need to get back to tip rolling. Really do like the sound so far, though, looks like another keeper.

 

 

The IM70 prefers silicon over foam tips. Tip roll your silicon tips and the highs will come out. I still dig that earphone.  Powerful full sound.

Good to see your initial impressions on them are changing smile.gif

How are you enjoying the KC06's ericp10? What? You haven't fallen like a lemming over the hype cliff as many of us have? What resistance lol :wink_face:

He will soon 😅

OK, so I'm @ the show, listening to Audeze LCD3 through Woo Amp and laptop, really great sounding. The guy from Moon Audio almost has me convinced that I should buy UE Customs, A&M 240 at show prices and I save so much money, I'll be way ahead of the game. Trouble is, it's making perfect sense to me, spend $2800 on gear and make money! HELP!!!

Wish I was there. Maybe the fall meet. =(

Which UE customs? Find a UERM demo somewhere there. There has to be one somewhere.

The Reference Monitor is the one I'm talking about , $999 list, 20% off here...
post #23682 of 31765
With Comply tips, through A&K 240, great sounding (balanced out, even)...
post #23683 of 31765
... Includes audiologist!
post #23684 of 31765
(though I think my wife may not go for me bringing home the audiologist.... 8-)

doctorjazz, if they are %20 off now, they will most likely be %20 off later, it is not like it will be the only time. There's a lot of competition out there. This gives you time to think about it outside of your immediate adrenaline rush and excitement, so more clearly. And also give you some more time to consider similar options.

After hearing some of waynes world's stuff i nearly went out and spent a few hundred $ right away, but took a step back. It's still all amazing stuff, BUT also still available for me to get should the urge arise at any time.

 

Be careful! And hope you are enjoying yourself.  How many people are there?

 

That $999 can  nearly get you the new oppo fullsized :), or the next model soon to be out with cash to *spare*

 

BUT HEY if you want them don't let my ideas there stop you! It's all up to you!
