    3 stars: I had a lot of fun and it was totally worth the time and effort to get there with all my gear! It opened up my perspective about high-end headphones and I met awesome people; I will surely come back next similar time
  • 0% (0)
    2 stars: pleasurable, I met with cool people and discovered new gear, I might attend the next Montréal meet/event or not
  • 0% (0)
    1 stars: was good, but kind of less exciting than I thought, considering all the effort to organize, find a room, and transport my stuff. I have my reservations whether I'll return or not in the future
  • 25% (4)
    Hypothetical 3 stars: I was close to the location but because of work and/or other obligations I couldn't attend; saddens me a bit
  • 25% (4)
    Nothing, I do not even live in Canada nor am located in the same province! I came here to read impressions and possibly see people's photos

HiFiMan are having a clearance sale on the RE-ZERO, they are 60$ on Head-Direct. Does any of you know of a Canadian retailer that has these in stock? I looked around the web, and found nothing. I figure a Canadian retailer with them in stock would also offer a sale of some sort.

Hey, go to Layton audio, we have the whole hifiman line :P

 

(I don't know if we can match 60$ for RE-ZERO though...)

I actually received another hundred dollars worth of parts this week to upgrade it, and they are waiting on the shelf begging to be hacked. Can't wait to try those NOS German tubes...

Concerning the HE-400, it's strange but for me of all the headphones I heard at the meet the HE-400 is the one I remember best. And I didn't even like it, I don't think I would ever buy one. It's heavy, and has a nasty treble spike that kills me. But that bass! Woha what a ride. The cleanest bass I've ever heard out of any headphones. If there was a known way to tame the treble spike that did not touch the bass in any way, I might consider it as a complementary headphone for electronic music.

 

But still. <3 HD800. It's sad they are so overpriced though.

 

 

 

The price on those Stax is actually quite reasonable. I thought all electrostatics were well into the 4 digits, which was why so little people owned them. I guess I'll have to go read on these, some day.

 

 

 

If it's hooked up to a computer, just EQ 16khz down 3db.  :)

This looked awesome. I'll definitely try to make it out there next time. Good to see these kinds of events happening.

new audio (mostly headphones) shop called MIX Audio, in Centre Eaton downtown.

they have Shure, Denon, Sennheiser, AKG. for example AKG Q701, Senn HD598, Amperior, Denon D2000 etc. not the higher end models of some brands but still quite nice.

saw all the most recent Shure IEMs there. and I heard they're getting Sennheiser Momentum up for demo this week. curious about that one.

and also FiiO amplifiers!

 

very nice staff too, quite impressed.

Are you guys planning anything during the winter break? I just finished this term, and I have the next 4 weeks free. I'm looking for a reason to get out of here. tongue_smile.gif
