Cats are so funny. Your cats sound evil.

I use the v-moda cables with mine and they've stood up to all sorts of attacks.

Is there way to know what cables from ebay are genuine V-Moda or is there another retailer who ships to EU?

If they can fake the 45 degree headphone jack and the look...**** it's probably just as good!

Indeed.  These headphones are the pair I was most impressed with on first listen.  They continue to do everything just right.  Very difficult to fault cans.

Still enjoying my HP50's however they could be a little more comfortable and I would not mind a little more bass. Build quality could be better too IMHO which leads me to my question.

 

I can get the Philips Fidelio L1 from that site we cannot mention for what appears to be a very good price. Build quality and comfort that looks to be superior to the NAD's and more Bass. Just how much more I'm not sure. So my fellow HP50's aficionados, does anybody on this thread own, or used to own, the L1's and if so, you comments and thoughts re comparisons would be most welcome.

 

Very tempted to pull the trigger as I might be able to resell them for no loss here in AU should they prove to be no match for the HP50's. The build quality is desirable and I know it does not matter at the end of the day because the sound is the most important feature obviously but hell, they are one good looking set of cans.

 

Cheers.

I agree that build quality doesn't seem very good but what more can you ask for $300?

 

The sound is above $300, and I can say some things sound better on these than they do on the highly praised HD650.

Thank you for your reply.

 

$350.00 here in AU when I purchased them. We get seriously screwed on pricing. Yes, I agree they do sound good however my ears are slightly bigger than the cups and they are in addition very shallow cups at that. I can get the L1's for $130.00 landed which is why I am asking the question re L1's vs HP50's. If the SQ is close and say about 3-4 more db of bass, the large cups and build quality of the L1's compared to the NAD's may make it a compelling reason to purchase. I have 4 days to make up my mind!!

 

Cheers.

I would buy it from a place with a good return policy and then compare if I was in your situation.

Unless I have been misinformed there are no retailers here in AU that let you buy then return if you don't like them.

I have decided to do a Mark "Chopper" Read alteration to my ears so they fit in comfortably inside the HP50 cups.:atsmile:

 

 

Got my hands on some DSF files last night and god damn if these headphones aren't bloody brilliant. Don't know what I was thinking when considering the L1's as a replacement. Maybe just a case of gas.

 

BTW the SACD is Roger Waters The Wall live in Berlin 1990. The mix is a little bass heavy but the NAD's with their relatively neutral sound signature nail it. Used X5 for playback. Awesome.

 

Cheers.

Put a glue a little inside the hole and a little on the metallic part, then insert it and hold several minutes. Then you can put it aside, and wait for an hour before you can use them.

No brainer - just a glue, you know. But a really strong one.

 

Thanks. I'll contact the seller and try to get replacement parts first though. ;) That does indeed look nasty and I'd like to do a more robust repair, as I'm wearing these outside all the time. We'll see, if replacement parts are available...
