Cash :

 

if that is a store demo unit thingy, then I am thinking it is daisychained from a main 3 wire signal feeder cable, one side of the screw terminals will be input and one output to another of these rack mounted units to feed the source into them.  Though which mirror imaged terminal hookup side would be IN and which would be OUT you may have to post pics of the PCB board and setup.

  Of course i could be wrong but it is the only thing I can think of with the arrrangement seen in the pictures.

 

 

Man am I curious. For that price even a cmoy is hard to come by, and unless you hit up a decent garage sale or thrift store...

 

Gonna be interesting to see.

 

 

and don't quote me on that, just what I can figure. GOOD LUCK!!!!

I'm not expecting much, but those tone controls have me a bit excited. It's something I haven't ever seen on a headphone amplifier before, but I haven't seen many headphone amplifiers.

How do you think they'd affect sound quality?

Also, every offer but one has been accepted, so I don't think I'll have many difficulties.

A $20 amp. That...screams shadiness. xD

Not only that but some of the other stuff they have listed is extremely over priced. It makes you wonder why the amp is so cheap.

For one: It's in liquidation.

 

For two: There is literally zilch information about this thing.

 

For three: They have metric craptons of them.

 

For four: No one's buying any of them.

 

For five: They probably want to clear inventory, because #3 and #4.

However, it could also just suck.

I hope not.

I've reached out to someone at Arcatron Inc to see if I can get a spec sheet for you.

Cash, what is the difference between the SRH840 pads and the SRH240 pads that cost a little over 1/3 of the SRH840 pads?  Here they are:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Shure-HPAEC240-Replacement-Cushions-Headphones/dp/B002Z9JWZ8

 

The picture is the same.  If the SRH840 headphones are the same size as the SRH240, then I would think that they would likely use the same pads.  Right there you can see all the Shure pads and their prices, without changing items.  The velour pads for all models are $24.99.  But the other pads (pleather) range from $5.49 to $15.49 depending on the model be it SRH240, SRH440 or SRH840.

 

 

Update:  Here I found some more info that might be helpful:

http://www.amazon.com/review/R1T1S7DTKAXHOF/ref=cm_cr_pr_cmt?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B002Z9JWZS&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=#wasThisHelpful

 

 

Reading all reviews on this item, it seems like they are all the same size, but the 840 replacement pads are not the same design as the 440 original pads.  Still, I wonder if all the pleather replacement pads (240, 440, 840) are exactly the same.  Looking at the pictures it seems like they are the same.  But, looking at the prices, it seems like they are not.

I recall a lot of people with SRH440s buying 840 pads because the 440 pads were so uncomfortable. 

I'd stick with the 840 pads, or maybe go 940 for velour.

You are a lifesaver! Thanks a bunch.

They still haven't responded on my order.

If they decline, I think I'm going to try bumping it up in $1 increments until they bite.

Oh, the things I'll do to save a dollar. xD

post #6820 of 32904

I actually made an offer of $15 for one and they accepted, so you know you can save at least $5.

Oh, wow. 

Then my offer probably didn't get accepted.


I'll try 13.

Wow, I'm cheap.

I am gonna get my Somics soon. I think the title is more proper to what this thread has become.. A discovery is a discovery.. Shipping is taking too long.

How soon is "soon", Dsnuts? I can't wait for you to hear these things (especially with the proper pads!).

Also, have you given that Acratron a look-see? What's your take?

You guys are taking one for the team is my take on em but hey if it works. It will be one of the better deals for certain. The seller would like to get rid of em.. Who knows how those will sound. Will be interesting to read about the results.

 

A little side news. My WS99 shipped. Can't wait.

Ahh. 

Any opinion on iSK?

I'm probably going to order something of theirs in a few weeks (wouldn't make sense to order now, with it being Chinese New Year and all the sellers being closed + payday!). Anything look good?

I'm leaning towards the SEM5, but a lot of their over-ear stuff looks good too.
