T1 like nearly all Beyers has a big old spike at 10KHz.  Sometimes it's harmless, other times it's front and centre.

maybe this is why i notice less bass on TH-900s on the GS-X vs the WA2 or WA6-SE.

 

with the WA6-SE or WA2 on high output impedance, the bass was massive, i liked it sometimes, but it was so uncontrolled it recessed the mids and actually gave me bass fatigue, maybe thats where i was saying that the TH-900 had even more bass than the D7K, it was unbelievable how much bass the Th-900 would put out.

yeah. most of the times, the T1 doesn't ever bother me in the treble, its very rare that i find it too bright, but it does happen. 

 

the grado ps1000 however, god, i never thought audiophile recordings would ever sound sibilant, like the whole time i was listening to them i always felt fatigue in my ears, and i actually had ringing in my ears the whole week i was auditioning them, the treble spike on the PS1000 was as unbearable as the one on the beyerdynamic dt 770 pros i had once.

The TH900 does have a slight rise at 50Hz but this times it's more to do with dampening or lack there of.

Can't wait for my GS-X MK2 to arrive.  The wait is excruciating. :popcorn:

 

I just received Q-Audio cables for my HD-800s yesterday and the adapters work as advertised - meaning they aren't bulky and the weight is not noticeable. As for SQ, I can't comment on the differences between this and stock since I've only taken a quick listen. That said, the Q-Audio definitely sounds no worse than stock. For a source and HF amp, I'm using a Benchmark DAC2 HGC until my GS-X MK2 arrives.

I sent out an email last night asking everyone for their color and volume control choice for this batch of GS-X mk2. if you didnt get the email, its because i already have your selection, or because you used a different email address for payment.  as of right now, im only waiting for 4 responses on color and 2 responses on volume control

the number of orders right now equals the max number that i can build. there will most likely be some cancellations (i would guess at least 5) before they ship so probably, but not guaranteed for this batch right now

Awesome! I sent you an email (thanks for the instant reply!). Greed's pics turned me to the black side.

I went with black, too.

 

Brand new HD800 arriving tomorrow...  balanced Q-Audio cable and adapter coming soon...  and ofc the GS-X mk2.  Yay!

post #1978 of 3626

I just went with black and the DACT stepped attenuator.   :-)

 

(Unless, Justin, you want to offer a $200 orange option to match my Pico Power.)

 

(Seriously.)

Seriously...it is easier to buy another Pico Power to match the color of your GS-X 

:D
