Yeah, I checked, it was something like ~63. Still too much :/

sometimes these sound a bit boring at low volumes but they really do "wake up" at higher volumes

No, the S500 will not be exported out from Japan. Sometimes Japan produce electronic goods that only circulate within Japan. Only way for you to get them is online from someone in Japan. That's just how things are.

 

I've always wanted the Kenwood KH-K1000 headphones, but they're never exported for years. And the price is jacked up kinda high.

I wanted to go through all of the videos/songs that were submitted for the competition. I haven't listened to them yet, but thought that I would firstly stick them into this one post. Let me know if I missed any!

Congrats to all guys that won a prize. Wish I won the lottery or something that lets me throw in a FXZ100 and FXZ200 to everyone. This went pretty well. Who knows but we might have started something new here at headfi. I hope we can do more of em in the future. You guys leave all your bad days behind and look forward to a new 2013. Gotta do it. Will send out prizes soon. Still waiting for Ghost to message me.

Thanks for putting it on - very cool of you. It was stressful though - I had to have a swig of my Alberta Springs rye once I was done lol!

 

And yes, 2013 should be good. I get to look forward to my prize, HM5 pads, ele dac and Fiio E11 coming. And I get the feeling that at some point in 2013, resistance will become futile and I will probably buckle for the fxz200's. So, that might be something to look forward to as well lol!

 

Anyway, thanks again. We salute you!

It doesn't? It works, and has always worked, for me... What does it land up doing for you?

It's working from my phone now, but I think it was saying bad link or something from my laptop.
Anyway, lets assume it's working. I'm off now to give it a listen! Thanks

Edit... listened... awesome :-)

Okay, I did the pads change and tape the ports. I picked AKG pads. Mids and treble became more prominent but bass was missing even taped. Went back to stock pad and bass is back and overall sounded warmer than AKG pads. I like it though. This phone still impress me now and then. AKG pads did not 'lock' like the stock pads. Does ATH pads lock better?

post #3974 of 8117
ath pads fit/lock perfectly.

Can someone compare this to the Denon D1100, not only on SQ but on size and portability?
