Now I am saving to buy a used V.


Since we are family here on this train, wanna share this gem :

Warning: Spoiler! ( OT tidbits... :P) (Click to show)

just gotten the FAD Heaven4....one outstanding feature of this iem, is the projecting of the soundstage INFRONT of me...

left to right very cohesive merging of the soundfield. (Not so much like a wide 180degree far left or far right.)

enjoying classical music thru my android fone now..very nice indeed.


Switching over to some electronic music..

Bass is kinda like a Mikros...not heavvvvybasssed, but i can hear the taccck the thummmp, without the boooommmm.

Vocals are quite forward, not recessed.

Good value if u can snag one for less then 100. imho

But then again its our gain when the sale price is so low so I shouldn't really be complaining.


I agree. Within the week, I have purchased three pairs: one for use, one to hoard, and one as a family gift. They are my favorite portable can, by far. :)

 They have re-kindled my love for classical and acoustic music.

Right now it's more in the vein of leather for most of the pads then fake suede for the part that contacts the skin.

Its quite simple: The product I linked is an adhesive, (not like super glue)

You apply a thin coating (to both) underneath the exposed section of the pad also on the cup where it has come apart

 You then allow it to dry for 10 - 15 minutes and press the two pieces together instantly sticking them.

If you do not do this, there's a good chance it will continue to tear and eventually fall off. Or in very rare cases the pads have been known to explode.

Excellent there H2O,  also any industrial strength contact cement will do the trick, basically same as what H2O linked up. Key is letting both sides dry adequately, it's how the stuff works. BUT: you only get ONE chance when you stick them together you are done for good, no readjusting.

All roads lead us to after-market pads.

Just got the V-Moda cable based on Lors recommendation. Seems much more durable with less microphonics than the Stock cable. Will report SQ findings (if any) after burn in.

Damn right! Can't deal with stock Mikros' pads no moe'. I'd suggest the QC3 pads.

Seriously though, have you guys heard the DT1350?   In the 1350 thread, many users keep asking if there is a full-sized version of the little Beyer.   I haven't found anything close to the Beyer yet...the closest to the DT1350 I've heard is the T5p.  


The problem with the DT1350 is that the soundstage is really narrow -- imagine listening to your favorite band in a long, constricted room.  


I favor the sound signature of the DT1350...but I also prefer to listen to the Mikros 90 (which is more comfortable).   This is why I use the M90 at work – for long listening sessions (a day in the office) the Mikros is the better headphone.


Have you heard the Beyer T51P's? During a moment of weakness, I ordered a pair. They can be had for $176 at ncix.com right now.


I always lusted after the DT1350's, but never bit due to comfort concerns. After reading Macedonian's review and ongoing hype of the T51P, and then reading this review and this video, I buckled.


I think they look really good, and I'm pretty sure they are going to be quite comfortable. Here's hoping that they at least match up to the Mikros 90's in the SQ department!
