Thanks for your opinion, I might purchase one when I see no reason to use my desktop for gaming any longer.

 

 

 

Wow, wait, you have a 3tb hard drive that goes incredibly fast while having a beautiful screen+body?

 

Oh right, this is actually something I CAN buy, since I have never bought an inbuilt computer/monitor.

 

Thanks for the reminder eric, time for me to eye that beaut. :beerchug:

 

 

 

And how are those pandora hope VI going?

 

Any new insights from them, or are they burning in?

 

 

You are quite welcome vlenbo. The Hope VI is simply the best headphone I've ever heard. Nothing else I own comes near it (I probably have as little as 60 hours on it now). That includes handily beating my X1, which I still think is a good full-size headphone. I would say the sound quality rivals my top tier earphones (V6, ASG-2, FX850, etc.), and it sounds like the very much grown up big brother of the Heaven V (with treble extension, refinement, details, wider sound stage and plusher mids). It's comfortable to me (I can wear it for hours with no fatigue from being too heavy), and the only modification I've made is the one cn11 did with a few small rubberbands to keep the cups from sliding down (although the don't really slide down often, so this is just a precaution). And I rarely mention aesthetics, but the headphones are simply beautiful to look at. There is great synergy with my Schiit DAC and tube amp. The sound even jumps ahead of the 1Plus2 to my ears. I keep forgetting that this full-size headphone is a hybrid too. If you can find it new for about $600 (as I did), it shoots way above its cost.

here's a little video on them:


 

 

Where are you finding these listed in Japan for 15,000 yen? Certainly not on Amazon.jpn.

I'm guessing PriceJapan will have the Donguri at some point.

Nice write up Eric and spot on.

Pick the color and you can buy from it directly from the page using the banner link at the bottom from buysmartjapan.

For 15K yen plus shipping it's about the price of KC06 and KC06A plus some, hmmm. tongue.gif

Hi, just popping in to ask a question. Not very active on this forum, just glancing at this thread once in a while to see what IEMs I should consider getting.
