post #346 of 795

I take my Amperiors to work every day, use them at my desk. I was wondering if you guys had found a case for them? I asked Sennheiser and they suggested a DSLR bag.

I know, right? I am surprised they did not tell me to try using my wife's Coach bag... They did not put any thought into the answer. I did some google searching and found this, although I don't know if it would fit:  http://www.udggear.com/udg-ultimate-headphone-bag-digital-camo-grey

there's this case/bag from sennheiser http://www.custom-cable.co.uk/sennheiser-replacement-black-pouch.html, If you want a hard cover case, there is this grado one, but not sure about the size http://www.custom-cable.co.uk/official-grado-carry-case.html

Don't mean to sidetrack things, but it is the "Appreciation Thread".  I've got a nice home headphone rig and decided to get a Firefly and Amperior for travel.  Wow, this combo is crazy good.  I am digging it so much I am sorta regretting how much I've spent on my dedicated home headphone rig.  Yeah, the home rig is unambiguously "better" in audiophile terms, but this one is really fun and engaging.  I'm loving this combo on rock or anything with drive.  Right now, I'm grooving to the Beastie Boys and remember seeing them live in Chicago.  Certainly, one of my favorite concerts ever.  Next up....."No Sleep Til Brooklyn".  RIP Adam.

And you have the LCD 2s! Dayum. When you say firefly do you mean dragonfly?
post #353 of 795

Yup, meant the Dragonfly.  I definitely see why people either love or hate these cans.  If you want an immediate, forward, dynamic sound, the Dragonfly + Amperior is an amazing deal.  I'll likely swap out the stock cable with something from Moon Audio to smooth things out a bit, while trying to maintain the same general sound.  Also, toying with the idea of some Westone 5s.  I've got the Shure 215s for the gym and have had the Westones in the past.  

 

My home headphone rig is abt as tricked out as you can get.  It sounds stellar, but I'm amazed at what you can get for your money these days in Audio Land. The balanced cable for the LCD 2s cost almost double the Dragonfly + Amperior combo.  I'm on the list for the upcoming Geek dac from the Light Harmonic guys.  It'll be interesting to see how this compares to the Dragonfly.

FYI for fellow Canadians, Best Buy has the Amperior for 50% off!

I haven't been a fellow Canadian in decades, tragically, but I recall how hard it could be to get U.S. prices on gadgets in a country that dared support the arts -- I'm vicariously thrilled you located that silver morsel.

I have the 215s too. Seems like we have the same audio taste although you're a few years in the future. Because I want that LCD real bad. Have the he400 now and my socks just keep flying off to the point I have no more socks. Wondering what a higher level planar can do

These badboys went on sale here in Canada for $150 which I think is an absolute steal.

 

I was looking for a closed portable that had a similar sound signature to my px100-ii's but obviously regular price on these made them unattainable. So when they went on sale for $150 I had to jump on them seeing as how the HD-25-1 ii aren't readily available around here. These have not disappointed, they just make listening to music so fun.

Pick these babies up at Best Buy for $150, woahh what a steal! My main headphone is HE500 but I am still very much enjoying them when pairing with my Ipod Classic. Exciting sound with forward mid, much more comfy then the HE500. Isolation is very good, as I live next to a busy traffic road, and its no longer a problem with the Amperior.

Whoa run don't walk to your nearest Canadian Best Bey.  Since they are sold out online, I would definitely grab a pair in store.  In the US they are $349 and not available in store.

Woah picked up those last week-end. For headphones on the go i can't think of better deal.

And there getting better day by day!
