Outstanding David. This is the best work I have seen to date on headfi or anywhere . Your effort and commitment is to be admired. I really enjoyed the read/post #128 of 558311/1/12 at 3:55ampost #129 of 558311/1/12 at 3:58am
Massive! Would love to hear your opinion on the AKG K550 with that setup and compared to your other headphones (although they are not "flagship" of "ultra hi-fi" at all).post #130 of 558311/1/12 at 3:58am
Thank you David for your hard work. This is a piece of gem!! While I'm sure everyone has their own top 10 ranking headphone, you have provided us unbiased information of all headphones you reviewed. Thank you.
Just a note on the HD800, I have serviced the headphone in Sennheiser Singapore, and I have replaced the headband, ear pads as well as the outer plastic cover of those drivers. So yeah they are replaceable.
K702 finally got out of your top 20 list hahaha!
Just a small comment I do however prefer the old way how you put percentage according to genre. Nevertheless this is the most comprehensive reviewed I have ever seen!! Hope this work will continue to update for many months / years to come.post #131 of 558311/1/12 at 4:17ampost #132 of 558311/1/12 at 4:19ampost #133 of 558311/1/12 at 4:24am
Finally had the chance to read most of the write up. Really well done, well organised and written. Masterful.
However i was slightly disappointed the HE-400 wasn't on the list. I would have liked to see how it stacks up to the big boys.post #134 of 558311/1/12 at 4:26am
Best comparison I've seen online for sure. Something of this content belongs featured in a magazine.
I think we can all agree this will be used as a reference for a long time to come!
Well done indeed.post #135 of 558311/1/12 at 4:38amQuote:
