post #5641 of 5973

I'm at work now, so I'll get to it later :)

 

but yeah that's one thing I forgot to mention mod-wise was that I did also do the fill out the mids part of your mod with that case material.

 

Would you recommend I try sticking some more felt into the bottom? (like you have 3 porkchops). I kinda feel like the mids are there and they are really good (ofc I will see if they get even better) but its mostly just that BASS that is soooo huge, especially on some tracks, it's absolutely monstrous and definitely somewhat above the rest of the FR however when there isn't any bass going on, the sound it amazing.

There seems to be some variation, unit-to-unit. I have one that is a bit bass light compared to my "perfect" set, too. I also have two units of the Onkyo FC300. One is lighter in bass than my original set. I love my original set. I may be making an anecdotal assumption from limited experience here, but I think there may be more variation in headphone manufacturing than we might think.

I believe burn in is mentioned in the manual (but i doubt anybody reads those in headphones)

Looks like I was banned me from the PM-1 thread.

:confused_face_2:

Perplexed.

No rational explanation given.

Was it my audacity in comparing the PM-1 to the Mikros 90?

I am seeking sanctuary in the Mikros 90 thread--and solace from Stock Pair #3.

That sounds bizarre indeed! Did any of your posts there get deleted?

post #5647 of 5973

Yes.

Several posts were deleted, the last of which simply asked a poster what upstream gear he drives the HD800 with to make them sound, as he asserts, "more reference and musical" than the PM-1.

When I open the thread I cannot access any of the standing posts, either.

 

I meet this wall:

 

Is there an "appeals" process?

Who is the "Grand Moderator"?

I have been a member in good standing practically since the inception of Head-Fi; and this really irks me.

Well, Currawong (admin) is always watching and is helpful, so you could ask him what's going on.

post #5649 of 5973
Dun think he banned u specifically?
I saw the same cat...n thread was closed yesterday for some pruning I guess.
Whatever off topic posts are axed to the mod's satisfaction.biggrin.gif
post #5650 of 5973
Man pata... Thats messed up!
You should PM a moderator.
post #5651 of 5973

I PMed Currawong.

He locked down the entire thread yesterday, then forgot to reopen it after censoring, so I was not specifically targeted.

He did remove--at least I guess he did-- the ensuing discussion about source gear to optimize the HD800 [thus making the HD800 "more musical" than the PM-1].

Supposedly averted a heated discussion.

manufacturers should be selling headfi as a set...from headfone to the wall...that would save us alot of $$ :P

 

...but that wont be fun. :)

DT770/600 ohm arrived yesterday.

They sound dry, thin and bass-less alongside the Mikros 90. Stock Pair #3|0514 sounds about   j . . . u . . . s . . . t   right!  

Ran with both the beta 22 and BCL.

I thought these Beyers would have good/adequate bass.  Did I get a lemon pair?  Are they not adequately broken in? 

Will visit the DT770 thread(s) and read other impressions there.  

Maybe I just have to get my DT770 "ears" on, but so far I am unimpressed/borderline disappointed with the Beyers.
