But, as they are intended for my son, I will give the HE500 to him... Once he's old enough... Until then I'll keep them safe for him L3000.gif

Sooooo, the question still stands. What's gonna happen after the meet. Are we going to be partaking in the Dutch tradition of smoking weed and eating Gouda?

Sigh... Rowan will be so disappointed... frown.gif

 

There are no NL dealers, but you can buy them directly from Kidz gear (http://www.gearforkidz.com/)... The site looks horrible, but the shop part works just fine. And at $30 (including USPS first class shipping to NL) they're not a bad deal. They come in 5 different colors and there's an extra attenuator cable included too...

Here I am, slightly agitated since I have to type this whole thing again because my damned phone needed to refresh the whole page and I lost all text. Anyway here I go :D

 

Well. Negakinu, good news! My re-zero arived this morning!

 

At first they didn't sound anything like I remembered. Soundstage was all over the place, there was alot of distortion and the treble wasn't as sparkly as it used to be. After one hour of listening these problems have disappeared. It's coming back to my why I loved these back then. The best part is the soundstage. It sounds as if it's coming from far away and I really like that. Live recordings tend to sound like this on their own so they are a little strange to listen to. The sound is really smooth and the treble is starting to get sparkly. The treble is most prominent on these iems but it still is easy to listen to, unlike my K550 which have a really harsh fatiguing treble. Even low male voices sound full and rumbly, something I can't remember but that might be blamed on the sony hybrids I used and which I am testing now. They sound best with the double flange. There is a difference between this version and the previous I have owned. The shells are different and the cable is less stiff. [edit] They are very forgiving too! Somehow even System of a Down sounds good! I don't know if anyone ever heard these recordings but they sound horrible![/edit]

 

This kind of confirmed for me that burn in a real thing. At least in my ears it is. I always had the impression that headphones tend to change over time but I was never really sure since the theory that brain was burning in made alot of sense too. But this can't be blamed on my brain burning in. I would still be able to atleast hear  the distortion. I think it's a combination of the two factors and that, ofcourse, one headphone changes alot while another might barely change.

 

I'm really glad I got these again, especially since they were only €55 shipped! They sound great but I really hope I can get some tri flanges for cheap. Me experience is that these give the best sound and lowest 'thumping' sound. What I mean by thumping sound, well just imagine this: When I walk I hear a really loud low 'boom' which sounds as if someone puts a plunge on your ears and pulls it really hard at every step. Don't worry! This is how I imagine it would sound, I don't have any actual experience with a toilet plunge on my head, god thank you! Anyway, you can imagine this would make the headphones impossible to use when walking since the sound is around twice the volume of the music itself. 

 

 

I'm looking forward to comparing it to your re-0 Negakinu! And I'm looking forward to the meet in general too ofcourse :D It's going to be alot of fun! Meeting you guys and all.

I actually put all my headphones in a big laundry basket. It was the only container large enough. smily_headphones1.gif

Today I am fixing all the catering. How does tomato soup and turkish bread sound for lunch?

Also, I am spending more time on setting up my media player and music than on setting up my rigs for tomorrow. I can't wait to let everyone hear my JRiver Media Center/ Wasapi/ UD100 setup.

Soup & bread? Sounds good to me (although it does give me childhood flashbacks... To the Dick Bruna book 'de matroos' to be exact...)

Brush your teeth with cocaine, take a Red Bull shower, have your blood replaced by espresso, do whatever it takes to make you bring everything you own to the meet. ;)
