Wikiphonia

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Has anyone spotted this website? Seems like a potential place to research/add information to!

post #2 of 12

I did stumble upon it recently, but it's severely lacking content. It's a shame because it's extremely difficult to find detailed info on headphones (such as release date/revisions/etc).

Just thought maybe headfiers could offer some help XD

Spotted this site a couple of years ago when doing some research about a pair of vintage headphones. I think the guy who owns the site is a head-fi'er (not sure)

You think it's severely lacking content? Feel free to add it :)

Severely lacking content? There's information on there about MANY of the common vintage headphones and even some about the uber-rare ones like the SE-700 and SS-100. Wikiphonia is a great site, I've added some things myself.

Not all of the information on there is reliable, for instance the Sony DR-11 are listed as a potential ortho even though it's well known by the contributing community that they are not. There may also be some potential copyright issues, since it seems there has been some indiscriminate uploading of pictures from other websites onto the Wikiphonia servers.

 

Most of the site's content is provided by the community, of course, so this criticism is partly annulled by the fact that even I could edit these things and make them right.

Really hoping Wikiphonia content comes back up on that site. Also hoping all the content was saved & not lost.

 

This has been a comprehensive reference tool with deep information. Have learned immensely from Wikiphonia.

 

Some data is so obscure, it is not found otherwise. The Stax section is wonderful, along with other mfrs's tabs and listening impressions.

 

Can tell it is a labor of love with probably thousands of hours of input. A must for headphone enthusiasts.

 

World-class info - hope it comes back !

Checking in a year later for the new year !

 

Faust, we have learned so much from you and are eternally grateful.

 

Can only imagine the amount of time input to create wikiphonia.

 

Please save all the wikiphonia data and somehow post it all again somewhere, or publish it on paper.

 

Many of us will contribute dollars if needed.

 

Your info is spot on, with fine ears, and historically so vital for all to learn entering this hobby.

 

Ultimate reference not found anywhere else including the www, for use by all at any level of enthusiasts.

 

Thank You & hope to see it again !
