Probably this was a year ago

I only used stock tips I think

They have it here as well but says "coming soon". Probably never updated their site. These look damn interesting though.

So, I should've known better, having already heard all the Piano Forte before and none of them ever really appealed to me, but I knew after an hour that the 2.10 were eventually going into a drawer and seeing use maybe once every three months, or less, so I'm putting them up for sale:

Hopefully, someone with a better, deeper appreciation for the Piano Forte sound will find more use for them.

So the more time I spend with the Pandora Hope VI, the more unsure I am about selling it... I don't know if it's burn-in or brain-in but somehow its sound feels more and more addicting every time I put it on again. I can't put my finger on it exactly, but it just has a warmth and lushness that draws me in. It is dependent on the track I'm listening to though, some tracks I don't feel are as engaging on the PHVI as they are on the Heaven V. I think it might partly depend on the amount of treble is in a track, as some tracks without much treble lack a bit of excitement on the PHVI. It also might depend on quality of the recording... I'm very unsure but I'll post more about it if I ever figure it out.

I'm still waiting for my source setup (DAC, AMP) as my gears broke down ><

PHVI is collecting dust there.

Thought I would share these, inspired by a recent, quite enjoyable listening session.

I feel the exact same way with my PF X-CCs. At times I feel like selling them because the price just seems a bit ridiculous for me to own them without feeling guilty. Then I put them on and use them for a session to be sure about letting them go, because i know I'd probably never find one used if I ever want one again, and I realise I can't let them go. Some tracks do not sound the same to me on any other headphone or IEM anymore after having owned these.

I have thought of selling my PF-IX's, but every time I listen to them, I am compelled to keep them. No other 'phone can do what the IX's do to the midrange like the IX's do.

After much consideration, I've decided that I'm gonna put my Pandora Hope VI up for sale. Even though I really enjoy listening to it, its sound signature just doesn't match my tastes completely and I haven't had much time to listen to them at home anyways so I think it's better if they went to someone else. It will be missed though :( The info is in my sig if anyone is interested.

When you do not keep them, let me know. I'll be there. :D

quantx, 

 

Unfortunately, it may be a while. This is a pair of transducers that honestly transcends.

Just a heads-up to those wondering about the Astell & Kern AKR02, I'll get a pair soon and will post my impressions vs. the FI-BA-SS in this thread.

Whoa. Do those carry the same price tag as the SS? I wrestled over pickin up a pair for the longest time on the FS but felt that the sig might be a tad redundant with the K3K around

Edit: $1,300? Lol yikes
