First plate. Kind of rusty on my photoshop skills but it came out decent. Thinking about doing something different on the other side with same color scheme.

Very nice.

Did you print this on photo paper?

post #528 of 958

semi gloss photo paper. looks better in person but my camera is low budget. now I only need some transparent "film" to put on top of the design to protect it.

the background behind the text is light grey, maybe ill make it a little darker.

This is a neat design decision by Beyer to have this top bracket overlapping slightly the underlying bracket so you can easily fasten your own printed paper or whatever and it will stay in place. On V-Moda the plates are just held down by screws so this isn't a possibility. It allows much more user creativity as any colors can be used instead of the black n white scheme which is nice.

Someone said this earlier in the thread but I'm wondering... I have a Lyr... I realize the COP is only 16ohm... will I be alright running the COP from my Lyr? I have an E17 but I don't want to feed the line out from my Bifrost to the E17 if I don't have to. But I also don't want to damage the COP. The Lyr is quite powerful.

 

And if this is a bad idea, could I potentially get one of those adapters that increase the impedance? Thanks.

lol wut?

running low on black ink :(

 

Edit: Opened right cup and repositioned the cable going to the speaker and removed a few tiny particles inside. As of now no more clipping. beerchug.gif

For those interested I went to Walmart today and I found this bag/case that fits perfect for the COP. Its an Artic Zone (brand) insulated lunch pack. The insulation is a plus because it works as "cushion" for the headphones. Also have the option to close the case with the zipper or with the velcro. Best of all is just $5.00!!! It also comes in blue.

The Lyr should be fine, though you may not have much useable range on the volume knob. 

 

Why not just use the e17 as dac/amp?

I didn't buy a $450 amp and a $300 DAC just to not use them. They are superior to the E17.

Ha ha, no you bought them to go with a pair of $150 headphones.... he was only trying to help.... you know best tho:rolleyes:
post #537 of 958

I already had them, I use them with my HD650s and used them with my HD600s and HE400s as well. I just don't want to miss out on the excellence they provide just because one of my headphones can't handle the Lyr. My KSC75 can handle it (though that is 60ohms) so I figure something that costs about 10x as much should be able to handle it too. Didn't mean to come off douchey or anything.

post #538 of 958

Just don't crank it.  The Lyr puts out enough voltage swing that you can fry the COP, although you'll blow your eardrums well before that.

post #539 of 958

No worries, I do my best not to turn it up too loud. My Lyr never gets past 9 or 10 o'clock with my HD650s so I can't imagine my COPs are gonna get even close to 9 o'clock. I'll look into one of those impedance increasing adapters. They aren't cheap though.

post #540 of 958

There isn't much need for the adapter unless you want a larger useable range on the pot or you're just afraid of melting the drivers. You could just make one yourself if you know how to handle a soldering iron.
