Lol mochill! I seriously would consider it if I could get them for $90 shipped like some people I know got them for :mad:  But they would cost me something like $150 CN shipped. It not an exorbitant amount and I'm sure they are worth more. And I like how they would most likely offer up a different sound signature for me (ie bass-less, thin, anemic etc... just joking lol!). But it's still enough to keep me chewing on it - I think I'd rather spend that on the FAD V's tbh

 

If I sold some of my stuff, then I could justify trying out some of these new toys. Problem is I like everything I have (and also selling from Canada is a bit of a pain in the butt). First world problems!

I'm sorry for picking on you...

 

How much would it cost you to purchase the RE700s?

Hey wayne, you don't need the NADs if you've got the KEF M500s, do you?

I don't think I need anything since I have the M500s! But my mistake is hanging around this damned forum which gets me thinking I need stuff that I have no need for at all lol :rolleyes:

Nope, that'll never happen. Love the M500's. Have you tried them? I might like the 90's as an alternative, but I really love the bass and mids of the M500's (and they are very comfortable for on ears) and I really do doubt that I would like the 90's more. So, I would definitely have to try out the 90's first before considering selling the M500's. And as far as the X1's are concerned - love'em - they ain't going nowhere.

 

I might consider selling the WS99's, but every time I put them on I love them too. Dammit! :)

I expect nothing less from you vlenbo! 

 

Amazon japan has them for 12,999 yen, which is $143CN. Plus $40 tenso shipping = $183CN. Not a bad price, but I would have to then seriously also consider the AKG 545's. Have you heard them?

I'm guessing it's the same thing here? it says it's $170 with EMS.

 

 

I didn't unfortunately, those might be my next headphone, but people say that it's like a vsonic GR07BE, so I might not. I think I will though.

Before I chose the NADs, I went into a shop and tried out the M500s, P7, Momentums and the similar Onkyo model, who's model number escapes me. Surprisingly, I preferred the Momentums best then the P7s then the KEFs. I was expecting that list to be exactly the other way round. The Onkyos were just too bright in comparison to the others. Note that I only played them from my Sansa Clip+, but it was lossless files and good recordings.

They didn't have the NADs in stock, which were the ones I really had my heart set on. Anyway, I decided not to go with any of those and ordered the NADs without trying them out. I'm glad I did smily_headphones1.gif

I managed to fit the oval ST750 pad's onto the TH-7BB therefore, I think, I can conclude that I could fit the HPAEC840 & C940 pads onto the set. smily_headphones1.gif

Does Tenso have the option like Rinkya where it allows you to enter your own declared value? Most shipments i get from Rinkya are all declared at 1800 yen :ph34r:

 You will probably waive any insurance or security on shipping, but it saves the big ones$$$

 

I doubt CDJapan would have that option might be against their business legalities/ terms

UPDATE: I'm still in the process of getting the Havi B3 either replaced or exchanged with the Astrotec AX35. Just waiting for the seller's final decision... kinda delayed most likely because of Chinese New year.

 

Guys, I just got to insert this initial impression for the R3. It may have not have gotten much attention probably because it can be a hassle due to fit issues but to tell you the truth, all the fiddling I've gone through just to make it work for me has been worth the time and hassle.

 

I've been listening to Brainwavz R3 as part of the Dual Dynamic Review and Comparison with the KEF M200. I gotta say... this is surprisingly AWESOME! :eek: I can probably say that this has got to be up there with the best I've heard when it comes to PRAT! Reminds me so much of my enjoyment with the 1Plus2 original version. Yes folks, it's no typo! Pace, Rhythm, and Timing is just as enjoyable as the 1Plus2! I can't stop listening to the R3 because it's just so much fun. 

 

So expect the Dual Dynamic Comparison write-up very soon... this is quite an interesting match up! :wink_face:

Here is a new IEM from AKG, it is a tiny little thing with a 5.8mm driver almost rivaling the Aurisonic Rocket for size. Using the stock tips this goes unbelievably deep into the ear disappearing, using Sony hybrids I use large tips and they are note quite as deep in ear.

Sonically they are a bit V shaped but still have very good mids. They have a very nice sound stage which is all the more impressive given their size. I want to let them burn in for a couple of days before I give a final verdict on their signature though. For the $50 price tag I think they are pretty darn sweet though. I think I will keep them and do a comparison against my Aurisonic Rocket's then they come in in May/June. I expect the Rockets will slay them build wise and probably sonically but for $50 these are punching way above their price tag in my opinion so I might be surprised.

I bought these because of how much I love my K545 headphones. These are not quite as good as the K545 but do have some similarities already so will be interested to see what happens with some burnin.
