Thanks mate, will take a look when I get home later.
As an addendum to my last post the magazine also does an in depth review of the cavelli liquid fire and the HD700's

I have to say, of all the HiFi Magazines HiFi+ seems to be the one that really understands the headphone market is a serious alternative to the loudspeaker market for listening to music.
I purchased this copy and will have a proper read when I get home!

Any other takers on the 4pm CST listening sessions today?

 

I am confirmed for 4pm.

Guys
Hehehe

Want to know what is the difference sound between x-g and x-cc piano forte?

RidleyGuy and myself had a splendid second listening of the Piano Forte with new music. We listened to Faure's Requiem with Kathleen Battle. 

 

The ambiance was captured and rendered perfectly with the PF. The projection, the soundstage, showcased the music perfectly. It is another album for which the PF's were made for. Listening to it on even my HD800 ruins everything. The live concert feeling is lost, the soundstage is 3-D and unnatural... the PF's really did a great job with this. 

 

RG mentioned perhaps a weekday night would be better for the group?

 

My selection is up next, we shall listen in about 2 weeks time.

 

 

Keith Jarret, with Jack DeJohnette and Gary Peacock: Somewhere (Live In Lucerne / 2009), ECM, 2013 - Here on HDTracks

 

"Now in its 30th year, the Keith Jarrett Trio is widely considered, as the New York Times recently remarked, to have set “the gold standard” for jazz groups, and this sparking concert recording from 2009 is issued to mark a milestone anniversary. The “Somewhere” in which the ‘Standards’ trio finds themselves is Lucerne, Switzerland with a performance both exploratory and in-the-tradition. The Neue Zeitung praised the show as “controlled ecstasy.” This must-have album features the standards “Solar,” “Deep Space,” “Stars Fell On Alabama,” “Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea” and much more."

Man, the Heaven VI does things no other head audio device can. It's great. I wish FAD would come out with a Heaven X with some rare-ass metal, cost $850 and was the epic culmination of the Heaven Series. I want more Heaven!

So do I. Have been listening to them a fair amount lately. And I want the HX's to sound like this.

Sorry, I haven't been able to join you on schedule because of time difference, but I listened to the same recording on Sunday morning with my 1601s and enjoyed it very much. smile_phones.gif

 

Just a thought, it would probably be easier for more people to participate if we just chose an "album of the week " to be listened to at any time during the weekend.

1 question:

 

How did u guys use the Heaven long-tube-housing (numbered) series? I find it too long and it keeps on falling down due to g=9.82n/s^2 (gravity lol tongue_smile.gif)

post #2427 of 4531

Hmm, mine just kind of slide in and stay there. They go pretty deep. Maybe you need to try a larger tip?

post #2428 of 4531

Larger tips? I'm not sure if larger tips help...

Once it seals, there's a vaccum effect and they stay in there pretty well. I would probably have to jump around like a crazy person to get them to fall out. Maybe you're using them with too shallow a fit?

As a note to potential buyers, it's probably the most comfortable vaccum effect I've experienced. You don't even notice it on insertion, only when there is any force trying to pull them out (like your hands pulling them out, or the impact created when you run).

Just to lodge them in better. Potentially...

 

This is how they fit me in terms of depth.

Since going to straight down, I am back to the included medium B (large opening) tips. I am really getting no noticeable vacuum. It is a light loose fit but just tight enough to get the full bass and isolation.

 

I get a more secure fit with the dual layer Sony hybrids but I think that the sound quality is best with the original B tips .
