Awww, grayson will kwy if the martins won't meet up to his expectations...

 

You know, you can just sue us, right? :wink: 

 

In all seriousness, the worst thing that could happen, is that you would sell a $100 in the forums of headfi.

 

BUT if you barely used it, then you can sell it for a good price anyways! It's a win-win to be honest.

Non hardening clay in the baffles, adhesive felt in the cups with paxmate logs, and a thin layer of cotton over that. Shure pads and a v moda replacement cable. That's the best config I found - I found the DBV V3 config to be too bright and sibilant which I got around by removing the stiff craft felt, treble reflector, fiberglass and backing off of the amount of cotton.

 Oh yeah, these kind of blows away the Yamaha HPH-200's. Very nice indeed.

Sounds like you know what you're doing! How do you like them? Sf and I are relying on our buddy to work some mad modding magic to our T50RP's, and we're very much looking forward to them.

I really liked them a lot. They used to be my primary can for a while. They have the nice planar mids, good warm bass, and the treble is HD650 ish - a bit back in the sound signature and smooth. Ultimately the reason that I don't use them anymore is that the 650s fill the role of warm headphone in my collection and where the fostex struggle is detail extraction in busy passages and soundstage so they've been rendered obsolete so to speak. I've been trimming the fat recently from my mid-fi collection to support the HE-6 setup. First the K702s went because they were taking a backseat to the 650s and the HE-6 are now filling the role of brighter headphone, then the Denons left since the HE-6 can also fill the role of bassy headphone and I find the Denon mids to be a bit recessed for my liking, and now the K167s and Fostex which had taken a backseat to the 650s, K702s and Denons are gone. So now my setup is going to be HE-6 and 650s as primaries and the Mikros as backup/portable headphone. Although if pataburd is anywhere near correct they'll work their way into the rotation.

^ Oh speaking of those modded T50RPs, i have a Schiit Vali coming in this week and the slight warmness from a tube amp might go PERFECT with these Logans as Godfather Pata Papa Hypa' has alluded to. If the floor noise on the Vali is not TOO bad on them that is. :triportsad: But i mainly got the Vali for my Beyer DT-250 and those modded T50RPs so..... these Logans is just the cherry on top. :)

 

So pretty damn hyped to hear how they all gel, and this has ENDGAME setups potential written all over it for peanuts. SWEET!!! :L3000:

No, if pataburd is right, the 90's will render your HE-6 and 650's obsolete! :D

Haha - we'll see about that - that said I do have a mega review planned considering over the past few weeks my setup will almost be completely redone. Right now I'm sitting at

 

Headphones:

 

Hifiman HE-6

Mikros 90

Sennheiser HD650

 

Amps:

 

Bantam Gold speaker amp

Project Ember

 

Dac:

 

ODAC

 

Cables:

 

Audioquest Forest USB

Audioquest  Golden Gate RCA

HeadphoneLounge Solid Core Silver cable for the HE-6

Double Helix Nucleotide Cable for HE-6 and Sennheiser HD650

and whatever replacement cable I get for the Mikros

 

And I haven't reviewed any of it except the Ember and ODAC. So can I say mega review upcoming?
