One more thing: Happy Thanksgiving to you and everyone on this crazy thread! Be sure, folks, to hide your headphones if you have in-laws coming with out of control grandchildren that tend to  break things. After last years near-disaster, I'm not taking any chances.

haha, I planned to hide my headphones too!

I just wanted to say that these headphones sound absolutely fantastic with the Machinarium OST. Really detailed and layered. Some of the best ambient music too.

Thanks :) Here in the Netherlands we don't celebrate Thanksgiving. But I'll be sure to enjoy my pizza tonight :p

 

Yes, hide your precious gear! What did they break last year?

Nothing broken thank goodness! But at some point during the festivities, I entered my study to discover my Hd800 box open, the headphones missing! In a panic, I rushed out into the backyard, where everyone was gathered, to see my nephew--a 9 year old crazy kid with wild hair and even wilder eyes--marching through the wet grass like a demented soldier, my headphones on his head, and the cord trailing behind him like some long serpentine tail. My in-laws just thought this was hilarious and kept cheering the little demented solider as he fought off invisible enemies. I had to somehow rescue those headphones without coming off like an evil uncle,but there was no other way: so I just unceremoniously snatched them off his head while everyone looked at me with reproachful eyes. I, of course, said, "Sorry, so sorry," and would have justified my behavior by revealing just how much I had spent on those headphones, but I knew they would be aghast if they ever discovered the truth on that score. So I just departed, mumbling to myself. Everything was a little uneasy after that. This year, I plan to avoid such a episode.

Oh man, that's painful! But they actually went into your study and took your headphones out of the box? 
They should learn that kid some manners, seriously.

 

So I guess you put your valuables in a safe this time?

I don't have a safe, but a locked closet should reasonably safeguard my toys this year.

Am I the only one getting this squeaking noise?

post #2592 of 19921

No you're not, mine do that too. Although the left side doesn't squeak much. I wouldn't worry about it, i never actually need to turn them that far.

post #2593 of 19921

You could apply some oil to the hinges if it bothers you?

post #2594 of 19921

Yeah just buy a bottle of mineral oil from your local pharmacy and use an eyedropper.

DAC/AMP for the HE-400 update.

 

So I'll get the latest version of the HE-400 within a month and I'm already trying/buying new dacs.

 

I bought the E17 as an upgrade for my E7, and dock it the E9. 

Apparently the E17 sounds less good docked in the E9 than the E7. No need to say I'm returning the E17.

 

I recently bought the Audinst HUD-MX1. I'm wondering if the headphone out of the HUD-mx1 will be good enough to power the HE-400, or do I need to connect the HUD-MX1 to my E9? I think the later will do nicely :)  

 

I bought the HUD-MX1 from the audinst ebay shop, which is located in Korea, so it will arive in about 4 weeks.
