Norne Audio (Was: Norse Audio): Feedback & Impression Thread - Page 5

post #61 of 1150

No problem Trevor, that's what I figured but a part of me still hoped they would deliver on Monday. Guess I won't be able to see them until Friday since I'll be living at NASA for the week unless I make a special trip back home. frown.gif

 

But here are a couple more pictures (Sorry, but I'm a terrible photographer)

I know you cant make any comparisons using 2 different headphones.

Build quality is similar, just that the Norn is textile while the Skuld is a polymer material.

 

As Trevor have suggested, the Norn (4 conductor) is probably all you need since the terminations for the 1/8 plug or the balanced RSA/ALO plugs are all done with 4 conductors because of the lack of space, now I don't know if I understand this correctly or not but Trevor should be able to clear that up.

 

Meanwhile I have gone for the Skuld (8 conductor in Audeze termination) because I just wanted the best he's got (I never settle for something less :P ) and also because he had a promotion on at that time that I got a free Norn2 (4 conductor) cable too, which is what I got for my Hifiman headphones.  I also got terminations for 1/4; 1/8 and the RSA/ALO balanced plug so that I can go for many choices.

First of all I am a bit of a space nut, and envy your "living at NASA".  What exactly are you doing at NASA if you don't mind me asking that is?  Cool stuff!

 

Second I hope nobody steals the second package as I assume it will be sitting on your doorstep for this week (shipped express, signature waived). 

I would say NASA just etches out headphones in priority, but its close! :P

Haha awesome, love space <3. I did notice your likes on the Norse Audio page on Facebook for JPL and MSL. :p  I'm currently a Guidance, Navigation, & Control intern working on the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE). I pretty much perform/support tests done on the full scale model of the LADEE spacecraft, with actual flight hardware and software. It's pretty cool because we get to do things with the model that can't be performed on the actual spacecraft until it's in space. I live at the lodge on base (basically a NASA motel) so I don't have to make the drive back and forth everyday from San Francisco. I'm going to miss working here though, this is my last week then back to school.

 

Thanks for the concern! It's actually being shipped to my parent's house so it'll be ok. Sorry for the slight derailment of the thread.

Actually, I have a problem, how do I differentiate between the left and right?  I do believe I can differentiate the Skuld with the splitter facing forward and I'd get the L/R, how do I set them apart if there's no splitter?  Especially on my Norn2?
