How is the comfort?

Hmm... why do the WS55x black pads look much larger (innercircumference)? WS99/77 pads or something? The Black ones do look like they'd fit around the ear while the white ones doesn't (for me anyway).

thanks:) they are not the most comfortable but not very uncomfortable either. But it took me days to experiment and get the best fit on my head. I could wear them for about an hour without taking em off.

I suggest to not hijack this one and to move WS33x/55x discussion to their thread. You can post the pictures and the comparison there as well. beerchug.gif

Got my Aune T1 yesterday and am using the stock tube. All I can say is WOW! Inital impressions are off the charts, and this combination smokes my Creative X-Fi & PA2V2 setup. Can't wait to try different tubes and see how that effects the SQ.

 

I havn't forgot about the big review I promised but the T1 took longer to arrive than I anticipated. I am going to give it about two weeks worth of listening and maybe some tube rollings before I hammer out the review.

Kidding.

But yeah, the Denon DX000 series has a completely different presentation compared to most Audio Technica headphones. Midrange is pushed faaaarrr back to simulate a more expansive soundstage. I don't think bass bleeds into mid (especially true for D5000 and D7000), but it's pretty hard to hear "any" mid already when there's a lot of treble and bass playing.

I wonder if any brave soul will lug along a WS99 to the SF Bay Area meet next week. If I spot one, you bet I'll do a comparison to my W1000X and wooden ES10. I'm kinda curious about the WS99 since my little brother seems like he's gonna need a new headphone soon.


Did you had a chance to listen to the ws99 there....?

The screw holding my right earcup to the headband is coming loose, but I can't get at the screw to tighten it without (it appears) removing the earcup from the headband. Has anyone else removed the earcup from the headband? It looks like it might be possible, but I don't want to force it too hard without getting input here first. Thanks!

I encountered the same problem and I tried to use 90 degree angles screw driver but it was kinda tricky and left some scratches one the cans:( I suggest you send it to service centre. Better to be safe always!

take out a tiny screwdriver tip from a driver bit set ( like the interchangeable tips in a ratcheting screwdriver or drill-bit set or something ). Dollar stores might even have these cheap. If that can fit there where i saw you can bend the cup bracket down, then put it in and use a small wrench to turn it. If it is slightly too long to fit in there take it and file it down or use a hacksaw to reduce the length enough so that you can still use smaller thin pliers to turn it.

 

Maybe put painters masking tape on the cups or something in case you slip.

^ Or even better just let nick fix it for you. wink.gif I am sure he is dying to spend some quality time with them alone.

Might be able to avoid turning it with pliers even could possibly use your fingers.  Such incredible sound in these things.
