I love industrial design and woodwork. And I can't imagine the amount of work that would have gone into that. It is simply..... stunning.
Doesn't come cheap though.
You should definitely document the process with photos or videos, it'd be fascinating for the rest of us who have no carpentry/artisan skills.
Sounds like a plan! Oh, the things I would do with a good CNC router/lathe and some free time...one day.
I'd be interested - they are apparently pretty comfy.
If there's any chance that you'll be making a 3D model for the CNC, it'd be great to collaborate on it. I'm thinking of getting a TechSHop membership and it might be super helpful.
Love the passion and dedication. Keep us apprised :)
Sounds promising :)
Doing a little comparison of the HE-400 and my new HD600 they do sound nothing alike which is what I was expecting and counting on because I wanted a more laid back signature with the HD600 compared to the HE-400.
I was wanting to see if the HD600 could compete with the HE-400's detail and while the HD600 had more detail than I was expecting from a lot of the review I've read they still didn't have the micro detail of the HE-400 which has as much detail as many of the balanced armature IEM's I had that are known for being detailed. Now the treble on the HD600 was another surprise to me as its quite crisp and detailed but again the HE-400 is just a bit better with more of the micro detail though quite a few people would probably prefer the 600's highs over the HE-400.
Bass again is better on the HE-400 with more impact and depth but the bass on the HD600 is natural and neutral which works with the over all sound of the HP.
Lastly we come to the mids (I'm not going to get into soundstage as both a spacious and good) which I give to the HD600 but it was closer than I was liking because the HD600 is known for their mids. The 600's mids are smooth, forward and detailed with very clean sounding vocals and in the HE-400 the lower mids are more forward but then the upper mids take a step back all the way tell the lower treble come in but it doesn't hurt the sound and I like it with many of the more energetic trance on house I listen to.
Ok I'm done now
Are these impressions before or after break-in? That bass starts to free up a LOT after a few hundred hours of break in.
