Audeze closed-back prototypes! Yeah, this is one of the headphones at the top of my wish list. - Page 38

Are the cups different sized than Hifiman cans? I am starting to get dastardly DIY ideas of trying to use the Audeze damping wooden cups to close some HE500s and see how they sound (and look!). It could either turn out fantastic or awful depending on how the cups attach or how each driver is made to sound when damped.

They currently do not offer the option of selling different wood style cups. However, in the future, their customers (I think those users buy LCD-XC) may be able to purchase them separately.


You guys want custom wood cups for your Audeze phones?   Go to www.martincustomaudio.com and check out what he does.  I have a Denon D5000 of his in Brazilian Rosewood and a D2000 just about ready to ship back to me in Cocobolo Rosewood.  Man is an artist with wood headphone cups.

Some pics? :D

I'm a huge fan of his.

Stock D7000 on the left and the D5000's with the Brazilnan Rosewood on the right. This pic does not do it justice, as they are gorgeous.

Oregonian, those are amazing looking. They make the D7000 look plain, and they were always my favorite headphone looks wise!!

Congrats on those man!!!!

:beerchug:

Thanks.......and they sound as good as they look. Very close to the D7000, almost too close to call.

Still I to would like to hear a review of the XC outside of the noisy Can Jam setting 

 

 

 

well i was just thinking maybe the driver can be a bottleneck... probably because im not very impressed with the stock t50rp sonically

I think the stock pads and houseing where more of a bottle neck. I was shocked at how... much improvement modding my w1000x netted me, a little dynamat [placed intelligently] and the L3000 pads really made it blossom into a wonderful headphone!

T50RP drivers are fine - just look at all the success the major modders have had with it. The MD, Thunderpants, and Alpha all sound very little like the original headphone.

If I ever hit the end of the journey (or get a ginormous pay rise) will be getting an entire set of the Klutz stands. Stunning combination of looks and functionality but they cost more than very good headphones :blink: 

post #567 of 820
So true, I thought I had to have one after seeing them at canjam, but after checking the price I think I'll pass.
post #568 of 820

You should buy the Klutz stands at shows, demo prices are much lower (still a lot of money though). I have three... (red, matte-black + black Bakoon leather edition)

I don't know, are they that "functional?" Seems like omega stands have a better design philosophy.

Klutz stands are heavy so you don't need to hold them when putting the cans on or off.
