Saw this on TV and caught my attention. YKYAAWhen you know that headphones are being shown throughout the clip.
How AKG K712's are made.
edit: AKG K702

That video is from 2009. I don't think the K 712 existed back then. XD

But yes, good video nonetheless.

They change Inbetween the 702 and the 612 throughout the video.

You know you're an audiophile when you.....parametrically equalise your etymotics:

 

Try this for a much more neutral experience :

 

 

130Hz -3.5db q=2.8 bw=0.5

650Hz -4.5db q=2.8 bw=0.5

2900Hz -5db q=1.4 bw=1

 

YMMV canal resonance, grey triples: 8500Hz -8db q=4.8 bw=0.3

 

I prefer to add a bass lift of 40Hz 5db q=1.4 bw=1

 

Stock etymotics are far from neutral.

^No but they sound 'neutral' in some sense.

YKYAAW when someone says "oh no" and you think of Dr. Atsumi Ohno and OCC (ohno continuous casting) cables.

YKYAAW you miss your headphone when you are oversea...as well as home of course xD

post #1584 of 3467

YKYAA when you know that your home is the place where your hi-fi system is, YKYAA when you know you are away just because of your current (transportable) rig...

YKYAAW you're waiting for two customs, the one that you ordered for yourself, and the one that's currently holding them at the airport.

When you spend days until you finally find this exact version you've been looking for.

I spent a year and a half looking for a original copy of Caress of Steel in good condition and finally found it 2 days ago.

You know you're an audiophile when you can tell the CD your parents are playing in the car is burned with <192 kbps MP3s. And even worse is when they turn up the volume and you can hear all the flaws.

Please make this road trip be a short one...

I know the feeling, once I made a road trip for like 6 hours without my portable rig (I forgot it :deadhorse:) at the end of the day my ears were sore, and almost dead, since that day I always have a reserve rig and added to my traveling check list
