Are you using Flux or something on your MacBook? I noticed the red tint. XD

Hahaha, yes I am. I can't live without flux. It's one of the first things I install on a new computer.

Indeed it is good stuff. I have it on my iPhone too. Yay for being able to read things in the dark without burning my eyes out.


What am I measuring for the driver wires? I don't quite understand what I'm supposed to measure. XD

It basically applies a red color filter on your screen to reduce eye fatigue. Blue light has shorter wavelengths closer to the UV region, and is usually harder on the eyes at night. That's probably why most cars have red/orange lighting for buttons/dials, and why tail lights are red, and why street lamps are sodium-based to emit the orange/yellow glow.

I extend this inquiry to everyone who is using non-standard audio cables with your M-100. Is there a difference in volume between the SpeakEasy and your no-frills audio cable? Zorrofox?

The main ones in question are:

NuForce Transient
FiiO RC-MH1
Auvio
That eBay one that's been mentioned
Any other that happens to fit

Sorry for the delay. Yes, the Nuforce Transient is slightly louder but it's definitely leaner and quicker the attack on drums in particular is definitely different - to my ears it's quite a bit better. I'll be honest here, it was only typing this message just now that I put two and two together and realised the clue is in the name. Transient.

Yeah, that sounds like a great idea. I will download that for my Mac ASAP.

At the moment I'm currently building a dedicated headphone listening station. I very got a Mac mini, along with two LaCie Porsche 2TB USB3 drives, Head'n'fi ODAC XL and O2 Desktop (currently en route from Switzerland). It should sound excellent to my ears. To think, just two months ago my go-to headphones were a pair of Sennheiser PX100II's.

Yup I heard the difference. Is it because the speak easy cable has more stuff between the source and the cans so there's more resistance/impedance?

Honestly I can't tell the difference in the sound blink.gif  
I'm glad. Since I wear glasses I'm definitely going to have to get the xl pads. Was afraid they might dampen the sound.

That's my guess. I've heard the speakeasy cable has a very high resistance, and this proves it IMO.

For any doubters about this being a good headphone for metal.Listen to "Bleed" by Meshuggah.Preferably amped.
post #19679 of 20874

LOL no one should doubt that these are good for metal. That's primarily what I listen to.
