I think that's my favorite so far. Just when I thought he was running out of ideas... wink.gif

I have been spending the last two days listening to the PF-IX whenever I am at my desk at home.

 

Been listening to Karen Carpenter this evening and she sounds really quite spectacular on the PF-IX........the tonal purity, smooth, sweet and mellow qualities of her voice is indeed outstanding. 

 

Wonderful listening.....................ksc75smile.gif

I agree, through my IX's Karens voice is sublime.

I really encourage folks to get some Carpenters music. It is easily dismissed due to it being soft pop but it is not. All the albums were beautifully produced, song writing exceptional and the performance, well for me she has one of the voices of the last century!

Anyway, thanks to whoever you are, this one's excellent on the FAD 1601s! smile_phones.gif

Yes, thanks to whomever!! I downloaded the 96/24 version from HDTracks - it's wonderful.

Hey Guys,

 

i want to get into the FAD but don't know where to start.

 

Im getting a K3003 and a Fitear 334 in a couple of days. I love pop, rock, progressive, some electronic and some classical too. Very sensitive to sibilance and can get tired too quickly with too transparent headphones (HD800 for example).

 

I think the K3003 and 334 are good all rounders and id better take a chance with a very narrow type of presentation like PF's do.

 

Any ideas on what to start with ? Piano Forte's # ?

^   The Piano Fortes will offer you the most drastic / different sound of any of FADs offerings, and it's not guaranteed to be the type of sound you might enjoy (they are nothing like the K3003s or TG334s). However, you might find them equally unique-sounding and perhaps quite addicting like several of us have. The PFs offer absolutely no isolation, fit can be an issue and, on top of that, they have no strain reliefs at the housings.

I strongly suggest you take your time to go over this (now long) thread (you can skip quite a few posts) and see if you can get a better idea what these phones are like. It hasn't always been that easy to describe the PF's very peculiar sonics, but several of us have tried. Sibilance & listening fatigue are not things associated with the PFs, BTW.
